At work and noticing some cramping this morning.  I am convinced this is totally related to the Endometrin insert I did at 7:30am.  Besides the two day long headache I got on Friday afternoon (7dpt) that lasted until Sunday night (9dpt) I can’t say I have had any symptoms that are significant and have resisted attributing them to anything other than the Endometrin inserts.  Any slight, momentary cramping or small bouts of sore bbs I felt this time, also happened the past two transfer cycles so they are nothing different.  I have had no nausea, no spotting, no pulling in abdomen, no food aversions or smell sensitivity at all.  Naturally, this has left me with the distinct feeling and assertion that this cycle is a busted BFN.

Our beta draw is tomorrow morning and I will have them call husband with the news.

It’s funny what we do to ourselves throughout the 2ww.  One day you google “4dp3dt symptoms” and then “5dpt…6dpt”  until the hope dwindles and you start searching “10dpt NO symptoms“.  You start trolling message boards with thread names like “2ww and no symptoms BFPs“, “How late did you get your +“…just for some hope of that miracle story.  I promised myself I would not do this, yet here I am, at work and googling.  Ugh.  Insanity.

A full week into Lupron and those good ol’ headaches/migraines are back in full swing.  The morning shots are such a breeze now.  Just another part of my morning routine between blending the breakfast smoothie and slapping together lunch.

Had a horrible final exam last night.  Head pounding and completely unable to focus I walked out of there having given all I could muster after a full day of work and lack of sleep.  I’m not feeling so hot about what the results may be but  I did my best and have to leave it at that.

Oh, also on traveling with meds (syringes and Lupron) SOOOOO not a big deal.  I just made it a point to mention to the TSA screeners that there was medication in my carry-on bag and that was that.  I don’t think they even cared, really.  So after that, I feel MUCH better about the concept of traveling and doing IVF.  Since we are going to a wedding in San Fran this weekend I am grateful for the trial run!

Husband and I have finished up our Doxycycline.  I go in for my baseline ultrasound next Wednesday and if all looks good, we could be starting stims at the end of next week.

REMEMBER, CHICKADEES………………

It’s National Infertility Awareness Week (April 24th – May 1st)!!!

Where shall I begin? 

My RE’s office has two women in it we deal with on a regular basis.  One, the quasi receptionist/admin and the other, the nurse; and after today’s runaround farce they put my poor husband through, are henceforth known as Tweedledee and Tweedledum. 

Yesterday -we had not received our IVF schedule for the upcoming cycle yet, so I asked Chris to follow up since I had spoken to Tweedledum.  See, Tweedledum insisted we start injectables on May 22nd.  This puts us needing retrevial smack in the middle of our trip east.  (I knew this because I am a nut who has done waaaay too much research on injectables & IVF cycles.)  I asked her, “are you sure about that?” said I. “Oh, Yes”  said Tweedledum.  “Ok, you guys are the professionals”.   Understand, they KNEW about our trip.  Dr. C DISCUSSED it with us.  We voiced our concerns and wanted to be sure that we would be ok doing either before or after.  So after this converstation I tried to convince myself that they had it allllll worked out for us and we would be doing the transfer right before we got on the plane or something.  Right.

The pit in my stomach only got worse when Tuesday came and went with no schedule (hence Chris calling to follow up). I just KNEW they dropped the ball on us.  I could FEEL it for shit’s sake. All I know is, if I was the one to call today instead of Chris…there would have been some furniture moving around this mofo.  And not in a good way.

Well, Chris got the full runaround, dipshit treatment today when we had to deal with both Tweedledee AND Tweedledum either both inisisting or “Thinking” they knew where we stood for our upcoming cycle. The conversations sound somewhat like this:

Chris: Are you sure this is the correct schedule?

Tweedleedee(dum): Oh, yes.  I think you should be fine.

Chris: I don’t want to know what you “think”, I want to know the facts from the doctor.

Tweedledee(dum): Oh, well, let me talk to Dr. C—-.

Chris: Yeah, that sounds like a great idea.

Only to have Tweedledum call him back with the news that we would be coming in first thing tomorrow to get started.   They were both wrong and Chris and I were correct.  I hate being right about others being wrong when it’s important shit like this.  And not even a fucking apology.  Not once a “sorry we misread your chart”, “my bad”, “that was our misreading”…NOTHING.  Goddammit, how hard is that?

I have been absolutely apoplectic this week because this is getting down to the wire with my Lupron wearing off.  I feel like a raw nerve. I feel like we are being ignored…and “I WILL NOT BE IGNORED!!”.  Sorry…ok ok..I am bat-shit off my rocker between the shots and the BC pills and me just being an emotional nut-job on a NORMAL day, so,  when shit goes down like this…lookout!  This is all I’m saying.

Long story short, we go in tomorrow for our baseline ultrasound and injectable teaching with Dr. C. 

FINALLY. FINALLY. Finally.

Final shot and blood draw completed.  HSG next.

The headaches from the Lupron are unreal.  Sometimes lasting 24 hours!  All the ibuprofen in the world makes no difference.  Hot flashes come and go.  Not as dramatically as last time thank goodness.  It’s hard with Lupron to tell sometimes.  You know how during summer if you’re outside you are usually getting eaten alive by mosquitoes?  Then when you are finally indoors, you still feel like you’re getting bit??  That’s what these side effects are like.  They start to run in with the normal every day pings and pangs of your body until pretty soon you wonder if your just going nuts.  Or is that just the mood swings?  Hmm.

Friggin Lupron.
