THE DILDO CAM . . . ready to go!
Bwahahahaha! So glad I could share!(Note: If you are a female & haven't seen an image like this live, you will someday. I hope your time comes in a positive way.)
Well, today I lllooooovveeeee the dildo cam. He was my friend (it is male I hope, right? right?). HE is my friend-friend-friend-friend-friend. :)
I mean, HOLY CRAP! On CD12, I have a follie that is already 21.7mm!! WTH? I always O between CD 14-16, so I was shocked! Dr. Terrific said my lining looks the best he's ever seen it! We are on for our fourth and FINAL IUI tomorrow!!!
As usual, Dr. T was full of fun and merriment today. I swear that I need to take my flip camera with me the next time I see him. Let's see if I can remember all of this . . .
When I went in last week for my CD3 u/s and b/w. My FSH was 4.4 (What?! I'm 42!) and everything else was normal. I learned that I hadn't had a pap smear in over a year, so I had my pap. On CD3. Icky icky ick.
After my fun time with the speculum and swabs, Dr. T said he had a present for me. I just hung out in the stirrups and sarcastically said okay. He told me to sit up a bit and he showed me a small, green lid with a small, white toothpick-sized plastic stick on the end. When he said, "I'm going to stick it in your hiney," I thought WTH kind of present is that?! Oh goody. Yet another orafice of my body to be violated. What a thoughtful gift, huh?! Well, apparently it's an apparatus for a new test out there to screen for colo-rectal cancer. Anyway . . . mine came back POSITIVE. Lovely. Now colon cancer? What's next? A lobotomy?
This positive result from last week led to a bit more prodding today when Dr. T did the test again. After I changed out of my lovely paper skirt and went back into the nurses' area, Nurse A exclaimed, "You're negative!" Dr. T, being the funny many that he is, said "YOU aren't negative. You are positive. Your ass is negative." He thinks he's so funny and proceeded to crack up. I responded, "I'm going to stay quiet until tomorrow is over." He said, "I know you're just like me and it's KILLING you, huh?" I told him to schedule my tongue transplant after my IUI. Touche!
Someday I WILL get him back. Something shocking and freaking hilarious. Those of you who know me personally *know* how much fun I could have with this. :) Maybe the day he delivers our baby would be a good time. :: kekis begins her scheming ::
My bp was really high today. Too high. I knew it was when I sat down, so I warned Nurse Excellent before she even put the cuff on my arm. When Nurse Amazing came by & saw it she was not happy. Nurse E wanted to test it again & Nurse A snapped, "It WON'T go down. It always goes up higher the second time on her!" Told you I've been overwhelmed, stressed & anxious lately. Medications are only helping so much. Hmph.
Well, I'm tired already and need to relax. I will ask that if you have any to spare, that you say some major prayers for us tomorrow. This may be the very last chance that DH and I will have to create a child. Yes, we are looking at IVF if this doesn't work, but we're not sure how to swing it financially. We are also discussing how much longer this whole TTTC/IF thing is going to go on because it can't forever.
So for now, I'm considering tomorrow's IUI a last chance until things pan out and God hears our cries in yet another way. Thanks to all of you for supporting us and loving us along the way.
