I have drugs!

After all of the drama yesterday afternoon, I was very relieved to see my husband walk through the door carrying a large box.

Even more relieved that upon opening the internal Styrofoam box, everything was still chilled. I should have taken pictures of how well everything was packed (thanks mom!)

So here is the final count…
Novarel hCG: x 1
Crinone: x 180
Heparin: x 18 vials
Prednisone: x 450 tablets
Estrace: x 270 tablets
Follistim: x 6 cartridges
Luveris: x 10 doses

It is absolutely bizarre to see it all together. In Minsk, I was constantly at my RE’s office (I was very well monitored) so I just bought meds as needed, some Gonal F here, another box of Crinone there, throw in a Pregnyl ampule, you get the idea.

Anyway, the meds are here and I am breathing again.


  1. Glad everything made. I think it be pretty weird to look at that pile too and think, "All of that is going in me in the next several weeks." Intimidating, but it sounds like you have great doctors and it will be worth it.

  2. Wow that's a lot of meds! Glad to hear they got to you safely.

  3. You know you're an IVF junkie when the drug spread makes you salivate with anticipation!

  4. Wishing you nothing but the best of luck as you tread down this path... Wow, that's an amazing amount of drugs that made it safely your way. Bless DHL and the ability to ship things in country "usually" without issues holding it up. Gotta love those Dip Notes. :)

    And giving the shots to yourself? A necessary evil that is so-not-fun despite how little it actually hurts... coming from someone who just did 10 months in my stomach...
