Happy Monday everyone! …All aboard the positive train! Get on wether you want to or not. It’s not an option.
First things first…. So…. like I said, the husband and I are wanting to add on to our family. All of a sudden, my body abandoned me and quit doing what it had been doing since I was like 13. Come on body- you put me through 12 years of torture and then when I need you to torture me and now, you stop?!? What the heck? My body wouldn’t/couldn’t ovulate. This is a problem if you want to become a mom some day- And, in general; as it can be a sign of something more serious. My doctors were becoming concerned that this was the case.
10 days ago…. Let’s actively try to fix this.
About 10 days ago my doctors decided to ‘actively figure out and fix’ whatever was up with my body. Apparently what they have been doing for the past year wasn’t “active” enough…. Doctors had been trying for a year to get me to ovulate. Nothing worked. They felt that all of the normal measures that would work in most cases had not worked on this girl whose body must have a mind of its own…. Normal me- not being normal. So they went to the last resort. The magic bullet. I went on this for a few days and was being closely monitored.
At the end of the test period, I had to wake at 4:15 am to make my 8:00 appointment. They did one last test and sent me on my way. On my way home, a few hours down the road, I got a phone call from my doctor. The magic bullet hadn’t worked. I was heartbroken. How can this be?! I’m young and healthy? I wanted to cry as he plainly said, “I’m not giving up on you and we’ll give this one more try, we’re going to do our best to get your ovaries to get into gear.”
So he upped the dose of the medication all sorts of crazy like. I trusted him and said that we would do everything within our financial power to afford this and make it work. Turns out our insurance did good things for us since it is completely a medical issue at this point. Instead of it costing an arm and and a leg— it just cost us an arm!
The News from Friday:
Then I took off work and went back this last week and then I got the news from the appointment…...I’m NOT BROKEN FOREVER! My doctors gave me good news and not so hot news. The good news totally overshadows the not so good though! I’m walking on sunshine!!!!
The Good: They think that this finally may have kicked my ovaries into gear! This does not mean I am expecting a new little bundle of joy in my life or anything, this just means that they think they will be able to help me! My doctor called and his exact words “It looks as this may work, and I’m glad because if it didn’t—I didn’t know what I was going to tell you. And, I didn’t know what else we could do to help you.”
The not so good: Some of my levels were super crazy but they think they can get all of that ironed out and they can help me. It looks like I could be at an increased chance of high order multiples. Yikes- 8 children at one time. Not cool. They think in time they can get things figured out to reduce this though. Till then, I have to be suer careful. I’ve always been scared of having twins– let alone high order multiples! YIKES!
STILL— I’m very pumped that things are looking up and I don’t have to go to the doctor for at least two or three weeks!YAY!!
