So I was going to title this, "Have Provera, Will Bleed" - but we all know that's going to happen and I thought it might gross you all out!
Time to update you all on Period Watch: The Clusterf&!$# Edition. You'll recall that I had to drag myself to the fertility clinic to see my RE in person to get the Provera. Even though I had already been prescribed it once before. By her. Yeah.
Remember how I vented away about how annoyed I was? That she probably didn't remember me?
Oh Internetz, it pains me to say this, but I was wrong. So very wrong.
The fertility clinic RE remembered me alright. In fact, she practically apologized for dragging me into the clinic but since I had been on a break from treatments for a while she wanted to catch up with me and discuss the medication protocol for my upcoming dIUI so I knew exactly what I was getting into.
Say it with me, WTF. No, no, sorry, I meant, "Awwwwwwwww..."
Yes, she is that sweet. She went on about how proud she was of my efforts to think about health and lifestyle while I was on a break. She encouraged me to keep that up as we embarked upon treatments again. She said that she felt really confident about moving ahead.
And secretly I felt like such an ass for being so bitchy the other day on here. I hope the universe will forgive me.
I got my Provera and a plan for our upcoming dIUI (femara plus injectibles - fun!) and now we wait for good ol' CD-1 to get the ball rolling. I started the Provera last night so within a week or so I'll be back into the land of injections, blood work and regular dates with Wandy the ultrasound attachment.
I don't know how the rest of your fare on Provera, but I swear even after one pill I'm getting headaches and feeling stabby. As some of you may recall, I am away this weekend at a work retreat, so you can just imagine how stabby I will be by Sunday. Watch your 11:00 news this weekend. Who knows, you might see some deranged infertile - that will probably be me!
But Internetz, there is EVEN MORE to tell. I heard back from the PCOS Specialist regarding some of my blood work and have had a very interesting revelation. That however, is a whole post in itself.
I will try and tell that tale before I leave for the weekend (not like any of you are that desperate to know) because I hope that this information might be able to help some of you.
