CD 1, surprise!


Don't you just hate it when AF surprises you? Especially when you are in front of a group of college kids at 8 in the morning, teaching pronoun agreement and cause & effect. Whoosh! At least I wore dark pants and got the heck out of there early. I spent the afternoon just relaxing at home. I should have been grading papers and such, but I wanted a day to myself honestly. I called to schedule the sonohysterogram for next Thursday and all the crazy bloodwork that goes along with it. I find it so silly that I have to get tested for all those lovely STD's and such. Oh well. I know it is protocol, and the insurance company will pay for that part at least. DH has to get his blood work done and he is afraid of needles. Ha! I am afraid of the ultrasound dildocam, but that hasn't stopped me!

I have also been instructed to start low dose aspirin until ? I bought some tonight and boy are those pills tiny! I am back taking my prenatals regularly, and just overall feeling excited about this next step. First, let's hope for a clean uterus next week. I hope the polyps and fibroids haven't taken over the precious space again. That would totally suck, but I am not going to fret about that right now.

Some good news is that I had my regular OB appointment on Tuesday. When I was there, I asked for a full blood work up (thyroid, cholesterol, etc). The doc called today and said all my tests were excellent. I am in good health, and that makes me super happy. The thyroid issue worried me for a second since I hear that thyroid issues may be causes for infertility. Oh, and the cholesterol test worried me because I totally chowed down Popeye's the night before!! Bad bad me! I just can't help it sometimes!!

Ugh - I'm so sorry it's CD1 - that sucks! I was also surprised at how small the baby aspirin was. Glad all your test results came back good, and good luck with your procedures and tests this month!

So glad your bloodwork all came back trumps. Sorry AF surprised you. It hardly ever surprises me as it seems to just arrive overnight and I discover it when I wake up in the morning!
