Can't anything go smoothly? Synopsis of my day:
7a- feeling really good on my way to my RE. If all is good, I get the green light to start stims tonight
8a-"hmmmm.... there's a cyst on your left ovary" ...... Wait, it looks like it has been there for a bit, so might not be an issue. We wait until your E2 comes back. If it doesn't look functional, we are still a go. Check the phone tree after 3 for instructions.
2:15- phone rings from RE's office. Can't be good. So....we got your lab results. E2 is 20, so you look suppressed. Don't think that cyst is an issue
(I breathe)...HOWEVER... Your Progesterone is a little higher than we'd like at 2.3. Still no AF?? Of course, not the slightest hint of spotting or cramping. Nope, nothing yet. Any chance you can drive up to another office (an hour away) for a repeat draw? Um, no...I'm at work and there's no way. Any chance you can draw it yourself and send it off stat? If you can repeat it, call me later with results and we will see how it goes.
Hang up....deep breath...fight back tears since I'm at the hospital. "Doc, you're lady is ready to start pushing" paint smile on face, go in and deliver a beautiful baby girl. Leave and run to hospital lab and beg them to run a stat progesterone level.
7p- progesterone result is in. 1.1 Call RE...so, it seems its coming down...still no AF? Nope. Ok...start stims tomorrow instead of tonight. We will see you Tuesday morning for repeat bloodwork and ultrasound.
Hang up with RE....cue migraine that always announces AF is coming.
I think tonight is a good night for a glass of wine, yes?
