The journey from miscarriage to whatever comes next

Do you hear what I hear?? November 20, 2008

So I’m on my way to the u/s today.  I’m stopped, looking at the Reuse It center to my left and thinking maybe I should stop by later?  All the sudden…WHAM!!  I got rear ended!  And, of course, I have to wonder, does this have meaning in my life?  I mean, honestly I feel like I’ve been hit by a truck often enough with all of this baby stuff, do I really need the full effect?

After my head stopped bouncing around, I thought “oh, maybe it will be totaled!”  No such luck.  There was some scraped paint on the bumper.  So no easy excuse to turn in the 8 year old Corolla with 123k miles.  Don’t get me wrong.  Corollas are decent, reliable cars.  The only teeny, tiny problem is that this is the third time I’ve been rear ended when at a complete stop, plus my hubby hit a deer once.  It isn’t a pristine Corolla and it is our only car.  It does apparently have a unique feature though– special invisible paint like Wonder Woman’s jet.  Honestly people.  Start seeing motorcycles AND Corollas. 

So I get to my appointment, a little shaken and dazed.  Here are the stats:

Right follicle=22.87mm

Left follicles=16.5mm and 12.9mm

So I’m guessing the dud on my left that only grew 1mm in 3 days is now reabsorbed and the 16.5 was the one coming on strong the other day.  But what do I know anyway?  So I got the hcg shot.  The nurse told me we are working with two, but it seems to me that it is really just the one.  I could have done that without the meds and all these darn appointments!  Oh well, we’ll see what happens.

And this is what I hear….

oh yeah….

So this medicated cycle on femara looks like this so far:

CD3 baseline u/s

CD4-7 femara starting with one pill and adding another each day

CD10 u/s with three follicles at 15.5, 15 and 12.5 

CD13 u/s with four follicles at 17.5, 16, 15 and 9

CD15 u/s with three follicles at 21.87, 16.5 and 12.5.  Lining is 10.46. HCG shot.

    I stumbled upon your blog from a google search for multiple losses. I love your blog. You are so on point with how I feel as well. You are very strong yet realistic.

    Andrea, thanks. Isn’t it so hard to put everything into words and explain to other people how you are doing? It can be pretty isolating to go through all of this. Hugs to you!

    Hi N, just caught up on all your recent posts. You are doing so great, I totally understand what it’s like to go through all the ultrasounds and meds. It is overwhelming, and just like you felt a little unfair that I could get PG without them, so why me? Why did I have to take all the meds? BUT, I have such a great feeling about this for you. Your follie numbers sound great, and I am SO cheering you on!! The meds really do work (I’m living proof) in terms of a possible different and positive outcome for you this time. I am sending you ALL the good luck and sticky baby vibes in the world. And have fun with all that BD’ing!! 😉 I e-mailed you today, write back when you can! I also have to say I’m a little jealous of your Thanksgiving menu. It sounds incredibly yummy. Much better than the dinner at our IL’s that is the same every year. OK – big hugs and stick, embies, stick!! — Daina
