The Verdict Is In…

on February 12, 2014

I finally went back into the RE today for my re-eval scan.  As soon as doc came in, I blurted out everything I’ve been stewing about for the last 30 days including, “We didn’t know we were pregnant until I was in the ER” and “I did call the office, and I did talk to your nurse, and she said she’d let you know”.  He was far from concerned and said all he cared about was that I was taken care of properly.  Overall, it was a quick exam and he said both ovaries are clear.  WAHOO!


He says meet the nurses in the hallway.  I get dressed, walk to the hallway, and notice my nurse isn’t there.  The other nurse hands me my paperwork and says to go to the front counter.  Once there, they basically tell me I can leave.

I’m dumbfounded.

Last time I was there we were going to do our injection lesson and today they’re just going to send me home.  Oh hellllll no.

hell no

I asked to see my nurse.  Of course, it’s a half our wait and I see why.  She was with “Litter” wife.  I call her this because during our TWO hour IVF presentation this woman’s husband asked the nurse…and I quote….”What happens if a rouge sperm gets in the egg?  I don’t want a litter of kids.  Just one.”  He was completely serious.  She was too.  Lord help us all.

Finally, my nurse calls me back, calendar in hand and says, “Glad you stayed.  You can start your Lupron injections tomorrow.”  SERIOUSLY??  Was there really that much lack of communication that they were just going to let me leave?  Lovely.  She gives me shorthand notes on my injections because she knows the hubs is a PA and knows what he’s doing.  Ultrasound appointments booked, calendar in hand, and I’m out the door.

I should feel great right?  Not exactly.  I’m still amazed they were going to let me leave.  I’m also pissed that I called the hubs with good news and he continues to ask me a question I didn’t have the answer to (“why do I have to take a z-pack?”) so instead of being excited were now yelling at each other.  I’m pissy too that the z-packs and other prescriptions aren’t phoned in until 7:15 when the pharmacy closes at 7.  Thankfully, the pharmacy tech called to let me know they’d be ready in the morning.  On a completely unrelated note, I even face planted on the back deck today (Chunk won’t go outside when I get home unless I go outside with him). And…on top of all this, tomorrow is the worst morning to start these injections.  I have to get Chunk to the vet by 7:30 to drop him off so we’re both going to be rushing in the morning anyways.

I guess I’m overwhelmed?  Stressed?  Worried?  I don’t know.  All I know is it’s taking away from the excitement of starting and it makes me want to cry.
