After yesterday's creepy post, I'm sure you were all left thinking surely thing's have to get better, and please don't write about IT again well they haven't got better, and I am going to write about IT again. The flaming fanny issue has got far worse. It's not a mild flame anymore, it's a whole fricken bush fire!
I rang the nurse again this morning explaining how it had got far worse, she asked if I could hold off till tomorrow so she can speak to my doctor and see what he wants to do, I may have to change to progesterone gel stuff, which cost's a lovely $15 per day, just to show off my maths skills, that's a mere $105 a week. for god sake! then if I do end up being pregnant, I could be on this stuff for another 4 - 6 weeks! So yes a bit peeved, but really once I'm pregnant we wont give a damn about a stupid $105 a week. Anyhow we will wait and see what the Doctor suggests, in the mean time I'm allowed to smear natural yoghurt on the area, and that has provided some relief.
As if people don't already think I'm weird enough, well you should have seen me last night, or actually just as well you didn't. So I was in quite a bit of pain,I didn't want to sit back in the bath on my own staring at the wall for 20 minutes, so I came up with a brilliant idea, I got out the baby bath someone had given us ages ago, and decided to fill that up with cold salt water and sit in that. So there I was trying to shove my obviously over sized ass into a baby's bath, just so I could sit in the lounge and watch TV. Just a regular Saturday night really, half naked, sitting in a baby bath.
I also spoke to the nurse about the possibility of a dreaded second round of IVF. I explained we were going to go ahead with another round if need be, I really wanted to know when we could start that, unfortunately we have to wait for 2 periods to pass, so we would be looking at an April start. That's shit really as it's more waiting. But oh well, my poor ovaries etc need time to get back to normal. But that's not happening because this is working. I keep reminding myself this isn't an IUI cycle, its IVF so we have so much more chance.
I really hope that any of you lady's that have an upcoming IVF, don't have to be sitting round in cold salted baths ten times to small for you and smearing yoghurt all on your lady bits, just too soothe the situation, anyone would think think I was having some kind of dinner party in the bathroom, as I walk in there with a salt grinder and a tub of yoghurt. IVF is not glamorous, so if you are heading into this leave those sexy sparkly heels at the door and put on a pair of practical sandals, you don't want to slip when getting out of that baby bath.
