I seem to be having problems - major problems - with even the small stuff this 3rd round of IVF. The first round was difficult because I was shooting up for the 1st time in my life and the 1st round tends to just be overwhelming with the drugs and calendars. The 2nd round was worse because I developed OHSS. This 3rd round, however, I've had problems since the start. I had to wait and wait till I finally did start. Then I had to go through 2 pharmacies and
So, the latest trial is getting to the dr office. Yes, you read that right. I've been there at least 15 times. I know how to get there - I just had trouble with that on Tuesday. I had an appointment on January 31st at 8am for my ultrasound and calendar follow up appointment. Because we live about an hour away from the Doc, Hubby and I decided to leave the house at 6:30am to give ourselves plenty of time in case we hit traffic. As we sat on the Interstate, I tweeted, "Sitting behind accident #3 on I-70. #Ridiculousness." At 8:20, we strolled into the Doc's office. When the nurse asked how I was this morning, I told her I was here and that's as good as it's getting right now. She just cocked her head to the side and looked at me.
Now that I think about it, that little frustrated tweet is pretty indicative of this entire round of IVF: (Imagine me shouting this like the TV Infomercial guy Billy Mays.)
Period is late? #Ridiculousness!
Drugs on backorder? #Ridiculousness!
You don't do THAT blood test in house so no same-day results? #Ridiculousness!
3 accidents putting us at a stand-still on the Interstate 3 times in 1 trip? #Ridiculousness!
So, I have 2 thoughts: Either this Round #3 is putting us through hell because I'm going to get pregnant with twins and be done with IVF forever OR it's a downhill spiral that is preparing me for another disappointment, at which point I will throw a tantrum full of #Ridiculousness.
Either way, in my opinion, it's ALL #Ridiculousness!
