Guess who went to their new RE's office at 8:00 AM this morning????? ME!!!!!! I was so excited to be starting fresh with a new IVF cycle and a new RE office. I checked in and had a seat and in five minutes or so I was called back before my scheduled appointment was to start! It's apparently the small things that impress me but giving blood at the SAME office I have an ultrasound scheduled THRILLS me. I went back and had my blood taken and was told to go around the corner and have a seat on the bench. The ultrasound technician told me I could just go right into exam room #1 and so I did. I hadn't been to this ultrasound room before and it was different than I was used to so I sat in a waiting chair until I was told to drop 'em. How refreshing to have a little private changing area with a mirror...and a bathroom connecting to the ultrasound room! Again, it's the small things that give me the cheap thrills. So I dropped 'em and grabbed a real cottonsheet (not a paper sheet) and walked over to the ultrasound chair, put my feet in place and took a little ride while the chair leaned back and adjusted as the technician got it to just the right position. She said our objective was to make sure everything looked nice and boring, she took some measurements and some pictures and that was that! Over in a flash! B-O-R-I-N-G! Starting with a fresh clean slate! No cysts or abnormalities!
In my former RE's office the Dr. did the ultrasound but I didn't see a real advantage to it. It wasn't like he remembered my uterus the next time I visited. All in all a great experience, I was out of that place by 8:11! Whew! Love that! I will be getting a call from the nurse today to give me direction for my stimming meds that start on FRIDAY! I can't believe it, I am so happy to be getting this show on the road!
UPDATE: I just got a phone call from the office. E2 is 55 (Dr. wants it below 67, so that's good) Jamie and I both take our zithromax on Friday at the same time and Follistim begins! 225 units Friday, Saturday and Sunday. Blood work Monday and then I will get further instructions! How refreshing to see a Dr. that fills in my calendar as we go and not before my cycle even begins! LOVE IT!
Oh yeah, WAIT! Honey, remember the other night when I told you to start practicing for our grow follies grow song! You better get tuned up because it starts Friday! I expect PERFECTION!!!! ;0)
As always...I am crossing off the days on my work calendar!
