FYI, I am now singing N’SYNC while righting this blog thanks to the title I chose! And now you are too!
So yesterday was CD3 and as instructed I put in my Nuva ring and I called C, the IVF nurse, to schedule my HSG and SIS. I have been so anxious to get these scheduled and over with that I was almost in tears that it was CD3 and I could call her! I called at 8am and left a voicemail. A few hours go by and still no return call I called her again a and got her voicemail so I hung up. I then became “that” patient. The one that constantly calls and bothers everyone. My coworker had to calm me down and talk some patience into me. Needless to say I went to sleep last night even MORE anxious because I couldn’t get them scheduled yet!
This morning at 8am I call the front desk and explain that I am calling to schedule these and C has not returned my calls, maybe she was off yesterday, but I need to talk to someone so they transfer me to Y. She was very nice and understanding. We got my HSG scheduled with radiology for this Friday April 17th at 7:00am. I told her how scared and anxious I am and she called in two Valium to my pharmacy to take that morning, along with an antibiotic that I have to take Thursday – Saturday. We also scheduled my SIS for next Tuesday April 21st.
Provided these tests come back normal we are still slated to start our first cycle on May 22nd. I asked about the Lupron Long Protocol in case I was going to have to take Lupron injections out of town with me the weekend before May 22nd. She said they don’t typically do that protocol. They do the antagonist protocol where the ovarian suppression will take place the last few days of stimming. So that means less needles! Yay! I am all for that!
In addition, most of my bloodwork came back. Everything was great. All hormones within normal range. I passed my glucose tolerance test with flying colors so I no longer have to take Metformin. I was apparently misdiagnosed with insulin resistance last year. So that was good news!! We are just waiting on these procedures then we can have a medication protocol assigned and order our meds! It’s starting to become more and more real with every doctor’s appointment and test. I will be SO happy once this HSG is over. I can’t even describe how nervous I am!! I will be trying to lay low and be as stress free as possible these next few days. It will be over before I know it!
Much love and baby dust!
