I know my blog is silly and boring and goofy. I promise that I'm actually a good writer in real life. I even sort of do it for a living, actually. But my fellow bloggers are so witty, eloquent, consistent, edgy, sweet, and funny, I can't possibly compete!
But I do have updates!
- I have a 5 cm cyst on my right ovary. Apparently ovaries themselves are only about 5 cm in diameter, so I have a cyst on my ovary the size of my...ovary. That's no fun. I'm having it aspirated through an obligatory giant needle through the wall of my vagina (who doesn't love that?) on October 22nd, which is also...
- The day my baseline ultrasound is scheduled before starting the stims for IVF #2. Lucky for me, the doc will be viewing my lining directly through a hysteroscope, so I can forego the actual wanding that day.
- My last post that confusingly indicated that I would have egg retrieval on November 2nd was slightly off...you may have also wondered how on Earth they could schedule an egg retrieval in advance (I know I did). It turns out that the scheduling girl was just exaggerating. Apparently they have "cycles" at this clinic where they separate patients into groups to all "cycle" at the same time. Basically, the egg retrieval will be sometime after November 2nd.
- I ordered all of my meds today which are apparently coming from a super fancy fertility pharmacy on the East Coast. Last time I got them at Walgreens, but this clinic seems to think the med procurement process should be super fancy...so...whatever.
So that's all I've got. Not particularly eloquent, witty, sweet, edgy, or any of the other stuff all the good blogs are, but at least I finally threw something out into the blogosphere.
