I'm back. For the most part the infusion went great. My nurse pulled up around 10 till yesterday morning and unloaded all the materials. We went over risks and general information. Then I had time to ask questions about the treatment. Since I have been diagnosed for a few years now with migraines, I did get a headache after the treatment yesterday and it is a pretty good one today. I did hydrate, but it was something they warned me would most likely happen. The infusion took 3 hours and 50 minutes. They start off with a very low dose and then every hour it goes up until the final dose. My blood pressure was amazing yesterday 126/72 which is almost unheard of for me and my pulse was even better at 92bpm! I guess having something like this done in the comfort of your own home does truly make a huge difference on anxiety levels. We talked the whole four hours and she was very interested in my case. She said I was the first person that she has ever done IVIG for infertility. So she asked about my story and we talked and talked. It was so nice to have a person to sit there and listen. She will be my home nurse for every infusion from here on out. We did go over how to do the epi-pen. I guess I have a risk every infusion of a reaction because each infusion is made from different donor plasma. I do feel better that I learned how to use the epi-pen, along with Al and Cierra, just in case anything happens. So all and all the infusion itself was great. I woke up about 1 am this morning with a horrible pain in my knee cap and it continued all night long. When I got out of bed this morning I was in a lot of pain and could barely walk. I did take 4 Tylenol and called the nurse. I guess this is also a side effect of the medication. It can cause joint pain. Honestly though, if headache and knee pain are the only two side effects of this, then I am sold :) Lucky me, I can sit all day at work and not have to walk on it much. She said it should be better within the next few days. My next infusion is set for January 31st at 1:00p.m.
On ttc front, today is CD 14 and look what I got this morning.
This is the first time ever I have got a positive with a digital ovulation test. I am feeling pretty awesome this year. I honestly feel in my heart that this is going to be a good year for us.
