So remember how in April Dr. H. suggested that I go to the Repeat Pregnancy Loss clinic here in town and said he’d referred me? Well once I got back on the chasing baby train after May, June and July break I emailed him to let him know that
a) we would schedule an IUI and I’d phone the nurses line to book once CD 1 arrived
b) should I take progesterone again? (his answer was yes, and I’ll pick up the prescription when we go in for the blood test)
c) how is that referral coming?
Well I emailed again yesterday to say I hadn’t heard from the clinic and then the next thing the clinic is calling me to say they had a cancellation and could I go next week? Um, yes please.
So, it’s all happening next week. Well, Friday testing for ovulation and then next week chiropractor, acupuncture (yes, I finished my 7 page form and sent it in) and IUI. Then a little mini break and fishing trip. Should be fun and eliminate some stress and allow the embryo to burrow into my lining and 40 weeks later out pops a baby or even two if we’re entering wishful thinking land.
This week is still not over though and tomorrow I’m meeting a former colleague for lunch who’s back at work now after maternity leave from her third child. This was an accidental pregnancy. I don’t even understand that phrase, how do you accidentally get pregnant with a THIRD? Then lunch on Friday with a bestie who’s on maternity leave with her second that “happened too quickly” yep, that’s a quote as well. Better get to Baby Gap tomorrow.
My left ovary/side has been hurting for the past two days. It’s starting to wear me down. I hope I don’t have another cyst. And I also hope I’m not ovulating from that side as it will make this cycle a bust.
Thinking positive though I’m happy that things are moving along and not too much longer to wait until something is happening.
