Add to this the fact that Mr. R is in the middle of a major project at work, requiring incredible amounts of over time, PLUS he attends college two nights a week and has to leave work early to make it to the classes -- already annoying his bosses.
So my options are... go alone, do the HSG and test transfer and drive home alone. Nurse says it's not at all painful... but I don't know about that. I have endometriosis and so even the dildo cam hurts a little.
Does anyone have experience with this combination of tests? What is the pain level afterwards like? Am I being a big baby?
Since this will be 3 days earlier than they initially listed it on my schedule (they scheduled it on 1/31 in error, forgetting that docs are all in surgery that day) I am hoping that this might bring EVERYTHING forward by 3 days as well.
Right now it looks like this:
1/28 - HSG and Test Transfer (Previously scheduled for 1/31)
2/4 - Start Lupron
2/7 - Last day of BCP
2/10 - If my body cooperates and gives me a CD1 then U/S E2, LH & FSH
- Start assigned study drug (either Gonal F, or Afolia)
2/15 - Labs & u/s
2/17 - Labs & u/s
2/18 - U/s and E2 (am) -- Possible Trigger Day (Ovidrel)
2/20 - Possible retrieval, start Doxycycline
2/23 - Possible transfer day
3/10 - Possible first Beta
My hope is that bringing the HSG up by 3 days will mean they'll let me start the Lupron and drop the BCPs earlier as well. My mother is in town from Canada and she arrives on 2/5 and leaves on 2/16 it's driving her crazy that she will (as it currently stands) miss the possible retrieval date by a few days. I am trying to explain to her that this schedule is organic and will change a lot over the coming weeks... if I even GET to retrieval!! But no... we're thinking positively... Of course we'll get to retrieval. My body loves me right now, remember? haha
Also, not that I am complaining because this is an almost free cycle, but see all those morning u/s and labs? Well I have to be there at 0730am and to do that I need to leave my house by 5am, and I will STILL get to work 2 hours late on each of those days, and this is a new job so they're trying to be understanding, but that is going to piss them off. And you know what else? I don't care. I don't care at ALL.
