I usually go to an ultrasound appointment thinking worst case scenario. I have cancer or a cyst that’s so large and stuck they’ll have to do a hysterectomy. Usually, nothing abnormal is found.
Yesterday, I had the attitude that everything would be fine. I had my ultrasound and the tech wasn’t measuring a bunch of stuff (measuring a lot is a bad sign) so I was feeling pretty hopeful when I went in to see Dr. G.
I was so wrong. He said it looked like I had some polyps, scar tissue and a rough endometrium.
I almost forgot the good news. I released two eggs. Fat lot of good it does because I am scheduled for a hysteroscopy and D&C on Monday.
So in a nutshell, I have an ugly uterus. And of the few times I have actually ovulated in my life, it doesn’t matter because if we did conceive, that little baby’s gonna be swept out of there before it can even hang pictures on the wall.
Then, to make an even crappier day worse, K and I got into a fight when we got home because we can’t afford this on top of our already monstrous medical bills. Lovely.
I know I meant this blog to be all about baby making but honestly, my life is so much more than that. Also not much has been happening. Do I really want to post every freaking day that, yup, I’m still bleeding or no sign of ovulation yet.
I do have an ultrasound on Monday. The doctor said my ovary was slightly enlarged and wanted to check it out after my course of a double dose of Provera. That’s all that’s happening reproductively speaking. I bled super super heavy for about 8 days after taking the Provera and it’s now lightening up so I should stop in the next few days.
I’m still taking the vitex and just eating better and exercising almost every day. Just waiting til next week to find out what’s next.
Oh, because I’ve gained tons of weight since the last time I saw my MIL, she thinks I’m preggo because the Provera made me have pregnancy symptoms and I kept rubbing my belly around her. That I kind of did on purpose. So she keeps asking everyone that knows us since K told her it’s nome of her business. Yeah, my hubby is getting a bit disgusted with his mother.
Have a great night (or day if that’s when you’re reading this).
So, I called Friday to get the results from my lab work and the nurse finally called back today.
My thyroid is fine. No big surprise there. I have had that tested every year and always get the same results. My hemoglobin was fine too. 11.8. Normal range starts at 12. The nurse and Dr. G were very surprised at that considering my last two months. I guess taking iron tablets every day along with the extra iron in the prenatals helped out a lot.
The good news is my triglycerides level was borderline high. No big deal. It has gone down since June just by eating healthier and exercising.
When I was at my appointment, we really discussed getting the bleeding to stop. So it was a surprise when the nurse mentioned that I would need an ultrasound in two weeks. So the Monday after Thanksgiving, I get to drive all the way to Green Bay again for a visit with the magic wand of infertile hope. Yay!!!!
I have to go. I’m going to clean my house. Happy happy joy joy!
Have a great Monday!
