The day started with a trip to the RE for my pre-lupron sonogram (ie visit with the dildocam). The office was suprisingly busy. The couple with the toddler, the chick with the awesome maroon faux aligator heels, skinny woman who grabbed a granola bar as she came in, and short woman who kept smiling at the baby. I was lucky to find a seat so I could work on my fertility socks and wait for my date with dildocam. I didn't have to wait too long. Only finished 2 rows of the socks.
As you can see I still have a long way to go. The goal of this project was to finish at least one sock by my embryo transfer. I think I'll get there on time. Anyway it is a good distraction to keep me relaxed during this whole process.
So when the sonogram tech started her prep I became a little nervous. Did she really need to use that much lubricant? Gross! Of course it didn't hurt or anything. But I can never relax with at those things. And it was especially gross because I have been spotting due to the stupid birth control pills. Anyway the tech found two lovely cysts....one on each ovary measuring around 19mms. So I also had to have my blood checked to make sure my E2 levels were still good. Luckily my estrogen was fine so we can "ignore the cysts to some extent". I'm not quite sure what that means. Blah. Can't everything just be o.k.?
In addition to informing me that my E2 was o.k. my nurse called me this afternoon to instruct me on how much lupron to inject and gave me some pointers. She is a sweetie. Anyway she went on to mention that it is crazy busy on mornings when everyone is getting scanned. And I never would have seen the office so busy because they typically don't schedule other stuff during this time of day. Uh huh. So I guess I'll be seeing the same group of chicks in the waiting room next week. Maybe next week one of us will have the nerve to smile or make contact. Me and awesome shoe girl could totally be friends.
