Feeling Better

I'm definitely feeling a lot better about everything over the past few days. Sure, I'm still pissed about the whole "friend getting pregnant by just looking at her husband" thing but hey, there is nothing I can do about it. I vented to a couple of friends who all agreed that she should have told me in ANY other way than blindsiding me when I was trapped at her house!

On another note, I have the most crazy heavy periods since my septum/polyp surgery. It is unbelievable. The clinic seems to think that it is because we "expanded the surface area of my uterus" by removing the septum but I don't know. It just seems a little excessive. I was convinced for awhile that my TSH must be high because I have heard that can cause heavy periods but I got it tested and its 2.6, which is still "normal". I'm hoping that the surgery didn't screw with my lining somehow or that I haven't developed some hormonal imbalance that makes me bleed like a chainsaw massacre every month. I'm curious to see if Dr. N has any ideas when we see him next week.

I am now SO ready to jump on the IVF bandwagon. I'm so sick of waiting and hoping that we get timing right with TI and IUI. I am kind of a control freak so all the monitoring that goes along with IVF will make me feel much more comfortable. I'm not sure when I will be able to start a cycle (hopefully there is no crazy wait list or anything like I've heard at some other clinics) but I want to do it soon!

Well, I'm going to go back to watching the Olympics and drinking my glass of wine! Go Canada Go!


  1. When do you get to find out your IVF start dates?

    1. We meet with our RE next Wednesday so I'm hopeful we'll get some answers then. I'll keep you posted! :)

  2. We have our official donor consult Tuesday and my sis has hers on Wednesday. Eek big week for both of us! Good luck
