Can't Catch a Break

This is Allison

Today was my follow up U/S to see if the small cysts they saw on my ovaries last week were still there and if my estrogen was lower than 80. I still had the cysts and my estrogen ended up being 77. So, they made me an appointment for Friday to aspirate (drain) them and I was told to begin the stimulation meds on Saturday. It appeared we were still on track.

UNTIL.........I left work and opened my cell phone to call my hubby and I had a voicemail. It was the nurse calling me back to say that the doctor also requested the lab to check my progesterone level just to see where it was. You guessed it. Elevated. Great!!! Now there is no cyst aspiration appointment for Friday (which would have been perfect because it was my Friday off) and no starting of the stimming meds on Saturday. URG!!!! They said I couldn't start the stimming meds because of my progesterone being too high, which would cause the meds not to work. Lovely. So, I called her back and left a voicemail to see if they could just go ahead and do the cyst procedure since it's my day off. I mean, why would it matter? Right? Yea, who knows? Hopefully they can do it.

Bottom line: I have a follow up of a follow up U/S next Thursday. And now we're off track by a week I guess.

This process is pushing the definition of patience. :) I know it's all worth it......but come on already, yea?

I'm outta here

Man! I'm so sorry! I know a week seems like forever in this process, but hang in there!
