It would be nice to find someone else who is on a pregnancy quest. Not just a single woman, but just someone else who is experiencing some of the same things.
So, I go through the steps of learning how to inject myself. While I was sitting there, I wondered about drug addicts. How do they figure out how to inject themselves? Trial and error? Do they have some druggie teacher who shows the best way to shoot up?
I was supposed to call the office with the first day of my cycle. Of course, my period just couldn't start...there was spotting on Wednesday and Thursday. Then I woke up in the middle of the night Wednesday night with bad cramps. Great, I thought, my period is starting. So I called the office on Friday and went in for an ultrasound. I was so excited because my plan was moving along....I was going to start the shots and have an IUI in early December. But no - why should anything go smoothly?
I have a cyst on my ovary and Dr. D won't proceed with anything until the cyst is gone. Guess how they work to remove the cyst? By putting me on birth control pills. So I need to delay the process for a month while we try to get the cyst to go away. This sucks. So they gave me a month of pills and drew some blood. Birth control pills don't do well with my body. I get nauseous horribly. I tried taking the pill first thing in the morning and felt terrible all day. So tonight I am going to take the pill before I go to bed and hope that helps.
But the whole thing just sucks. I understand them not wanting to do anything with the cyst as that can inhibit any implantation. But I wonder if my beloved Dr. B missed it before. Should I have skipped him and gone to Dr. D immediately? Shoulda, woulda, coulda. I just need to deal with what I have now and not dwell on what might have been.
