Also I just love the ridiculousness that is this top Moira has on 😆
Diagnosis (if you've been): endometrial polyp
Status (WTO/TWW/TTA): Technically TWW but AF is imminent
What are you doing this cycle? (Testing? Treatment?) HSG should be next week.
How are things going?: My follow up appointment with the RE was yesterday. I have so many thoughts about it so I’ll try to stick to the highlights.
I have more questions than answers. I asked her all of my questions but we just couldn’t seem to get on the same page. Everything (other than the polyp) is “fine” in her mind but I think she might mean “fine because we can still do an IUI” but that’s not the same thing to me.
Another part that I’m struggling with is that once the polyp is removed, she said we should only try for max 3 months on our own and then go to a IUI with clomid cycle. I believe this is because the polyp could come back. I don’t want to make this longer than it already is but I am really struggling to reconcile that in my mind.
Finally at the end of the appointment she asked if I had any more questions and I said that I wanted to clarify when we will have to TTA around my surgery. She explained that it would just be for the “surgery cycle” and then said we could still try up until my surgery cycle, but that there is an increased risk of miscarriage. It just really took me off guard and was she not going to mention that if I hadn’t asked? My immediate thought was that it wasn’t a huge deal since she hadn’t mentioned it so I said that it would be really hard for me to not try and she said that was fine, but the more I thought about it after, I need more information on the increased risk. If we do decide to TTA until surgery that could mean until March and that is a huge deal to me as I will be almost 37 by then. But I obviously don’t want to have a MC either. I sent her a message yesterday but I’m not overly optimistic it is going to clear up my confusion.
So that’s where I’m at I guess. I really wanted to have clarity and enough information to be comfortable with the plan by Thanksgiving but it looks like that is not happening. I’m having a lot of feelings about that too but this is long enough already.
Thank you all so much for being here for me. I honestly don’t know what I would do without you guys ❤️
GTKY: Mashed potatoes and gravy, for sure. They always taste better on thanksgiving. I’m definitely going to use those to eat my feelings tomorrow!
That cycle was successful however ended in MC.
