Happy Thanksgiving

26 Nov

I am visiting my family in Maine and having so much fun. I LOVE visiting my niece who is now 6 years old and still REALLY cute! Reading her bedtime stories is a real treat! I love being an Aunt. Her enthusiasm and energy is so inspiring! We had such a chill afternoon just playing Rockband 3. I am pretty new to it all but i easily got sucked in. My brother and sister-in-law have all the gadgets including two guitars, microphones, a mic stand, drum kit and the new keyboard. We could have kept playing all day. It was so nice hanging with them all day. I feel like my stress level has finally taken some steps down.

My happy face on my opk finally came up positive on Tuesday, the day before we left to fly out here. It was day 23 of my cycle, about 9 days late. I am not sure if the lateness means he Femara is not working as well this time. I guess the important thing is that i DID ovulate and i got the green light from my doc on the size and the lining thickness back on day 17. We did the babymaking deed and are now in fingers crossed mode. I started on the progesterone which generalaly makes me into a cranky bitch. These tiny little suppositories pack a real punch. I guess it beats injecting it. One less needle. The other thing is it makes my body feel pregnant, the nausea, tender boobs, random cramping, and no period. With the meds i have no clue as to what is going on with my body and i can’t gauge what might mean i am pregnang or not. Just have to do the 2 week wait and peee on a stick again. Last time i got a positive on day 16, 2 days later than normal. So i will probably not trust the initial negatives this time either.

Being here in Maine away from my job and commitments in CA is a wonderful distraction! And to think i had second thoughts about coming. This was just what the doctor called for!

When i return i need to pick up the fight with my insurance to get my acupuncture covered. I had no idea it would be such an ordeal. Until they start paying it feels like a bit of an indulgence and one that so far doesn’t seem to be helping (considering my stress levels and slow ovulation last month). I appreciate the moral support they give, and i love going, but i seriously question how much someone with my situation really benefits. I haven’t seen any studies connecting acupuncture with helping patients with recurrent loss.

    Happy Thanksgiving Friend! I am so glad that you are having a nice relaxing time with your family.

    My mom and I went to the spa again last weekend, I wanted to call you! It was supposed to be a relaxing day before my cycle started, but instead was a relaxing day before my cycle was canceled. šŸ˜¦ In any case, we decided to go back to the spa again at least once per month. I like being a spa girl šŸ™‚

    Safe travels home!
