Sorry, I know it’s been a bit since I posted. There was Pesach and Dr. visits and it’s been a busy time at work. Here are the updates.
This much we know is true: Although it might be the BCP making me a bit queasy, it is most certainly the doxycycline (from the sonohystogram and the TET and the hysteroscopy) I am allergic to. That said, I am still taking my Pepto and all is well in my tummy. Most of the time. But I have a fabulous rash from the antibiotics. It looks a bit like a painting done in pointillism on my arse.
Hysteroscopy: In a nutshell, my uterus is fine and I don’t have cancer. My doc declined to remove the tumor since it is so small she could barely find it again. She says she’ll keep an eye on it. I have a lovely clean uterus with no globs of any type to hinder implantation. I got to see it on fiber optic camera.
My observations: I think it looks a bit like a face in there, if you take the two dark FT holes as eyes.
Breaking news: When they popped the cam in, the doc forget to set the white balance, so it was like a bright light. I said I had a supernova in my crotch and she laughed.
And then, when they got the cam in (I have a long cervix, evidently), there were little strings of … I don’t know … CM floating around. I couldn’t help myself, I laughed out loud and said, “OMG, I have spider webs in my uterus. That’s what I get for not using it.”
She laughed so hard she nearly dropped the camera. And then I kinda had a big belly laugh and lost a bit of saline fluid. The whole thing was a bit of a comic clusterfuck but I get an A for the day. My ute gets a gold star.
Next up, pre-ART meeting was Thursday:
In a nutshell, all systems go. We will most hopefully be transferring two embies (read: we are adamant) on Day 3 past retrieval. I start shots Tuesday, I can give myself the PIO and the injection class is Monday.
They did tell me that if I give myself the PIO in my leg, I won’t be able to walk. Sadly, this just makes me what to try it and see.
For the record, yes, I was the kid who licked the metal pole in the winter.
I don’t know what my day three bloods were, but they were “just right.” And I have a lot of follicles — apparently my ovaries are just two little hen houses. Don’t really know what that portends for us either.
Hard-core monitoring begins April 30. Retrieval most likely May 5-7, and I get ’em back a bit after that. All extras will be frozen, just in case.
My “first” pregnancy test will be 10 dpt. First. Yeah, I snorted at that one too. My first was several years ago. It’s just that they’re all pass/fail tests, and thus far I’ve only failed.
