Why hello friends! How are you? Did you have a good weekend? Oh, you'd like me to finish the title sentence? Okay here goes....
I never thought I'd say this, but I'm so VERY happy that Auntie Flo has finally arrived!!! (Sorry if you were hoping for something else, that's all I got!)
The last two weeks have not been a barrel of laughs. Every movement was a calculated transfer of weight and new pain was never exciting. While I'm not a fan of AF usually, this time she was welcomed with open arms, even at 3 am with a lot of cramps! But at least I could go back to my staple of Aleve and not the Tylenol that really didn't seem to be helping, and a little glass of wine and (Volleyball Queen can you guess what else?!) N-A-C-H-O-S! And now, she's pretty much gone! Plus, I was finally able to go back to the gym. I know most people don't look forward to that but I really do like working out.
And then today I got my new protocol from Holly. Need a few more pills (no more shots...well to buy, still have shots, but not for a few weeks and we've already paid for them and they're sitting in the IVF medicine box) that Holly assures me aren't expensive. Bad news, I have to figure out all my questions before Friday when Holly departs until July 31st! I think I read her email and the protocol and the Embryo Transfer and Post-Transfer instructions four times tonight to try and pull out any minor questions that I might have before she disappears. And yes, I've already sent her 2 emails tonight because I forgot to add one little question on the first email.
One big one that I asked was because I had such pain and "complications" for lack of a better term with the retrieval, could this have any bearing on the transfer or hopefully pregnancy? Her answer was no because that was "ovarian" and pregnancy is "uteran". So I'm hoping she's right. A worry that has been culminating is that because there have been so many issues with the retrieval, and really AF my whole life (just a lot of pain), that pregnancy will be very difficult for me. I'm hoping that Holly's right and I'm wrong. Only time will tell.
And with that, I'm off to work on the fertility binder a bit that I didn't finish over the weekend and then head to bed. Night lovely Blogites!
