CD 19 or CD 1

Hello to all for the start of ICLW!

Something is wrong.

This post is going to be TMI so there is your warning.

I have yet to have a pain free day since CD 10 when the SIS was done.

I've had spotting since CD 10 but that did start just an hour before the SIS so I can't blame the SIS.

Today I passed two blackish clots the size of eraser caps, the kind as kids we used to put over our pencil erasers.

I also had enough bloody mucus to cover my hand when I got up this morning.  Thankfully my hand was covered with toilet paper so it wasn't that gross.  But for a gross factor it was stringy from the mucus being akin to EWCM just mixed with blood.

Something isn't right.

I called the IVF nurse J at my RE clinic and had to leave a voice mail.  No surprise there.  She was "on the phone" her message said.  Yes my clinic is just that busy.  We have folks from Hawaii, Germany, and Alaska flying in to use our clinic because the Army tells them to use it.  Funny how Hawaii has their own clinic but one patient complained enough about the long waiting list that she got to use our clinic.  That's right make the waiting list longer for the people here lady.  Good thing that patient isn't in the UK I've heard the wait lists are really long.

So my messed up cycle is even more messed up.

The pain is still radiating down my left thigh from the ovary area.  That hasn't changed one bit.

Hoping to hear back from my clinic soon.

***Update
Nurse M, my favorite nurse, called me back.  She said after looking over Lt.Col.B's notes, he is out today, that there isn't much to be done right now.  She offered me pain meds but realizes that I won't be able to take them.  I'm to monitor blood loss of course.  Now it is a just wait and see.  She is hoping it turns out to be implantation bleeding as I'm right  in that window.  Yes even with the two clots she said it is possible.

We'll see.

  1. praying for you. I know that it is a hard thing to wait and see what the doctor says. My cycles were all over the place when TTC. You were smart to call and ask about it. To me it sounds like the start of a new cycle but then again everyone responds differently to proceedures. My thoughts and prayers are with you throught this journey.

    1. Sounds like a new cycle starting to me too.

  2. It is possible, but you know your body and you know when something doesn't seem right. I'm sorry things are acting up like this. I hope that something goes right soon.

    1. I'm trying to move on to donor eggs and I really was hoping things would be nice and normal this cycle.

  3. I'm sorry you're hurting and not really getting any answers. It could be implantation bleeding, even with the clots, but you know your body and if you think it's the start of a new cycle, then it probably is.

    I hope thing settle down and we're both wrong.

    1. Thanks Jen. Right now I just want the pain to go away. A solid week of pain is just annoying. Flashbacks to last summer are going through my mind.

  5. Hi from ICLW! Sorry you are in so much pain, and hopefully the bleeding is implantation bleeding. I had bleeding after my IVF, and I am now pregnant with my little Green Bean!!!

    1. I have my doubts about it being implantation bleeding. From what I've read implantation bleeding shouldn't be this month. Afraid to hope it is only that though.

  6. It doesn't sound normal, whatever it is. I've had this bloody mucus of which you speak, but not at CD1. I've seen it 1) after miscarriage 2) after giving birth 3) early pregnancy around the time AF would have started and 4) when my fibroid had made my hormones and cycles all wonky donk. In any case the spotting + pain doesn't sound like normal AF to me :( I hope you get to the bottom of this and everything is ok.

    1. Yeah I don't think it is all that normal either. But the really good doctor is out today, the one day he is normally at the clinic.

      I actually had one day in the past week without spotting and I was like, "yay it's about time!" and wham it hit again. I have one small fibroid on my uterus that was found in the lap but didn't show up in the SIS but then again Major S was doing the SIS and we know what kind of expert she is since she missed the large follicle on the left side entirely.

    2. Bleh. My fibroid was HUGE and it didn't show up on the SIS at all because it was in the uterine muscle wall and not the cavity. But it still wrecked havoc. I hope whatever the condition is reveals itself soon! (I doubly wish that condition would be a pregnancy)

  7. That is very frustrating, but I am so hoping that it is implantation bleeding. I'm not sure that's totally out of the realm of possibility. Either way, I hope this is a sign of good rather than bad. Hoping the best for you!

  8. That doesn't sound right at all!!!

    You are in my thoughts and prayers.

  9. That doesn't sound right - but if the nurse thinks it could be implantation bleeding, then I'll second that hope! Good luck.

    1. Hoping that the bleeding will stop in a few days and not continue for a full new cycle.

  11. I only had big clots when I still had my large fibroid and my endo (pre-surgery). I hope it is implantation bleeding!

  12. I agree, that doesn't sound right. I'm sorry you've been going through so much lately and have trouble with your clinic. This is dificult enough without getting grief from them.
