Wow, what a long and stressfilled day this was! They just called and it seems that the sono was done properly - it is ( was) a hydrosalpinx - BUT when my old RE took my tubes out in 2008, he did it the newer way where you leave one partially still there and burn the ends. So it is the remnants of what made me infertile in the first place, but it isnt in the uterus, sort of pressing up on it though, but thats fine. The reasoning behind doing it this way is that if a partial part of the tube is left in there it can still have hormonal communication with the ovary. It must be because this is on the right side, and that was the only side that ever responded to stims, although still not well enough to give me any decent eggs, lol. So I guess I'll get to "teach" the PA when she does my next lining check on 3/5 hee hee. Cycle is ON! And stress level waaay down
Can I ever get through a cycle without some drama, it happens every time it seems like. Hopefully the rest is nice & smooth
- Hmm, I dont envy your beta day of being stuck at work while you know that message is waiting for you. I'd be climbing the walls to know already. Do you think that they would call Barry instead? They seem to be alot more together and patient sensitive than your last clinic. You could have Barry text you if its the right answer - and it will be, I've got such a good feeling for you this time!
My old clinic has given me records that I've needed, but my old RE has this thing about not wanting to give out partial records and charges 200 to copy your chart. I asked for my records and could care less about the charge, but I think the office manager was willing to send me what I asked for just so she wouldnt be stuck copying my whole chart. 9 attempts with the same clinic, yes I count the 4 that were cancelled. (they still cost me tears and too much for meds) Can you imagine just how big my chart must be?? No wonder she just asked me what I needed, they were just way too slow about it and ignored my new clinic's requests for them, when I called they were sweet as pie. I still feel weird cycling somewhere else, but what can I do? I had a nice chat with my old clinic and they wanted me to let them know if it works - and I will do that. You stay out of crazytown, ok? You've only got a few more days left of this torture and you CAN do this!! Remind me of that when its my turn, ok? haha. keep busy honey - xoxo
- It is odd how men & women handle the whole process, isnt it? I've tried really hard to have Chris feel included and explain everything little step, but once those hormones get ahold of us during the 2ww, I tend to live on the forums, because I feel like only other ivf girls really get it, you know? You're doing great mama, and its only a few more days for you too. You can make it to beta day without driving yourself too crazy - well at least I've heard that before ( but sort of think its an urban legend, lol) Ok, maybe I'm just not funny today.. I'm with you on the wondering if we could ever be so blessed as to have another baby. Its just that nagging little feeling of almost feeling guilty and thinking that we should be thrilled to have had a child at all. Dont worry mama, its just hormones, and the inevitable mind games that we cant seem to avoid during this blasted 2ww of not knowing what the heck is going on in there. I've always laughed and said that I dont need Valium for the transfer - but the 2ww sure would go easier if we got some for then - just kidding. Oh, yes I'm with you on the strong willed toddler thing! Wow, they sure can be stubborn, huh? I transitioned Ryan to the sippy painlessly by using the sippy with the soft silicone spout so it wouldnt be too different, and I tried it the first time with the afternoon milk because that was the one he didnt really care about. If I'd have tried that with the nightime milk - lookout! it would have been a total meltdown. I dont think it would have went as well if I'd have tried to use the hard spouted type. Teethbrushing has gotten better, but only because I let him "brush" for a few minutes first then I do it and I've forced myself to be consistent about it even when I'm not in the mood to wrangle him through it. Oh, I also noticed him watching me brush my teeth and let him "help" - well if you could call it that, lol.
