Here's my ticker!

Tuesday, September 23, 2008


So I went to the doctor today and based on a previous consult with a private doctor (versus the government sponsored one I saw today), he says my problem is most likely hormonal. Great. Just what I need. Hormone problems while TTC, even after 6 months of taking hormone replacement therapy. Wonderful.

Going to this doctor is a hell in its own right, by the way. I had to be at the office at 20 to 7, and I didn't get to see the doc until after 10:30. It's a first come, first serve kind of deal, and it's up to the gills every day. And they only see a certain number of patients based on the consult you're assigned to (morning or afternoon). If you come in after X amount of patients have already signed up, you get sent back and told to come another day.

Anyway, as I said, the doc agreed it was likely a hormonal thing and wrote me up a lab request for several different tests. I am being tested for pretty much everything on this earth, including blood type (which I had already told the doc, but he preferred to re-test it) and pregnancy test.

Yup. He thinks I might be preggo. Because my period after the IUI was so light. Because I haven't had a period in over 2 months. Because I am gaining weight (which I really shouldn't be doing unless I truly am pregnant).


I get the labs done tomorrow, and I get the results on friday. Wish me luck, and please pray for me that it's something trivial and that I'll be fine, and that if I'm not preggo yet, that it's something that won't prevent me from becoming pregnant...
