CD 6 – October 2015


Gosh, I didn’t realize it’d been so long since I’d posted! I know I don’t usually post much until the TWW, but I figured I’d better update everyone. There’s going to be a few changes made regarding TTC for Matthew and I … I finally have some


A few days ago I got a call (right as I was getting Bubby’s dinner ready, of course) from the doctor that has been prescribing my Femara for me; he’s also the one who had ordered all my blood work on CD 4 last cycle. When I got the results from the nurse, I immediately spun myself up into a tizzy over the possible implications of the numbers. I wasn’t sure whether or not the two levels the nurse gave me for FSH should be added together – if so, that would mean that my ovaries were failing. Thankfully – the two numbers do not get added together, and my labs were all within normal range! My FSH was at a 9.4, my LH was at a 14.3, and my P4 (Progesterone) level was at a 25.2 which indicates a wonderful O for me! He also said that he would put in a referral for me to see a RE (Reproductive Endocrinologist.) It’ll be the very first time in my whole life that I’ll actually be able to see a no-kidding fertility specialist.

Matt and I have also had some time to talk about TTC at some length, and have come to an agreement. Since it’s looking more and more like we’re going to have to take John all the way to San Antonio to have him evaluated by a developmental pediatrician to have his delays diagnosed, there really isn’t time for crazy TTC. I asked him if he thought we should continue to TTC and he said, “I don’t wanna not try.” He basically wants to NTNP (Not Try, Not Prevent.) And ya know what? I’m OK with that. I didn’t think that I would be, considering how insane it’s made me feel since he came home from Korea, but to be honest – I’m ready for a little sanity. I’ve got a million things going on in my life right now, and TTC really shouldn’t be at the top of the list.

I did go yesterday to get my pelvic u/s, however. The Dr I’ve been seeing at the military hospital wanted to get a baseline look at my girlie parts from the inside before sending me to the RE. The u/s tech wouldn’t even let me see!!


I’ll have the results mailed to me once they’re available, so we’ll just have to wait on that, the referral, and everything else. I decided to go ahead and take the Femara this month, and we’ll just have to wait and see on that, too. I am sooo not a patient person. Never have been.

The story of my life at the moment ...

      Thanks Shay. I’m struggling with it to be honest. As of yesterday, every single one of my friends (except you) is pregnant. And then there’s me. What’s wrong with ME?
