WTF # 2 and Good News?
Okay well the WTF appointment went as well as can be I guess. No they didn't do blood work. So I guess I'll push to get that done this afternoon when I get my new referral to the Gastroenterologist.
My blood pressure was good this morning at 125/76.
I explained to Dr.B. that I'm still getting some spotting and pelvic pain on the left side. He opted to check me out after our talk.
What he said was basically this: I gave it my best try. Its time to move to donor eggs since I was considering them. He said we could do a few rounds of clomid again before J deploys.
Oh and yes that is what I couldn't discuss before. I'll be finding out here shortly just when J leaves. He went to the range yesterday to qualify in anticipation of leaving soon. When he gets back home again we'll go ahead with the donor eggs. That is of course unless a UNICORN happens.
Dr. B. did say I most likely do have a developing issue with gluten as I'm in the right age range. He said that they would, while J is deployed, opt to check me out for the endometriosis before we go ahead with the donor eggs to make sure its all cleared out. He said that steroids would only cause more issues with the fetus than its worth and he said he wouldn't go that route.
Now for what he saw with the wand:
I watched as Dr.B's face changed to shock and confusion after moving away from the right ovary.
Oh my. I did ovulate on my very own. Right side was all quiet. Left side had one bloody small cyst (endometrioma) that is the cause of the slight spotting it seems. AND I had two cysts that I ovulated from. That right ladies I ovulated on my own, no meds, from two follicles on the left ovary. One follicle was more swollen still and a little bit cystic like but Dr. B. said it will resolve. The other was sunken in a bit and the bloody one was also small. Dare I hope?
The doctor didn't think I was going to ovulate on my own thus his speech about us giving it our all before the exam. Well here is hope that at least one was good enough and that soon I'll be testing. But I do have my doubts. I know the odds aren't in my favor considering my age. I'm due around 2 March for AF's visit.
Dr. B also said I am most definitely in the second part of my cycle from the looks of it. I already knew that too. I felt the ovulation pain on Friday last week on day 10. So Dr. B. is already quite aware that I ovulate early and he is prepared.
So I'm to call when I start my next cycle to get the script for clomid again. He put it in the computer today but I've got time to go pick it up. I needed only 1/2 a pill for 5 days last time to produce minimum of 4 follicles sometimes 6.
So I'm in my two week wait. We'll see where this takes us. It ain't over until the fat lady sings!
Update: RE doc doesn't think progesterone supplement is needed because a good embryo would have enough of its own. Sure and I'll get my unicorn tomorrow.
