After much thought, I wrote all the questions and concerns I had for my Dr and faxed them to my Dr's office. I figured it would give them time to give my concerns plenty of thought and also let them get back to me at their convenience. Or they could have just had a good laugh on me lol. Besides, I always forget half of what I intended on saying when I get on the phone.
I was told I could start to cut back on my V8/gaterade consumption since it looks like I am in the clear of OHSS. I have very little bloating and I have not gained any weight. Its amazing isnt it? My estrodial level was 6300 the day before retrieval. I did start those pills(cabergoline/dostinex) same day as my trigger though and took them for 8 nights. I also drink 64oz of V8, along with 3 to 6 gaterades and 3 large bottled waters a day!
I was informed that the hubby and I could resume our relations. But I think I am going to hold off on telling him until I know everything is ok with my pregnancy.
I also got permission to have my beta/progesterone that needs to be checked this coming Friday at my OB's office. This way it will only be a 20 minute drive and I will be there right at 8:30am. My fear of something going wrong comes and goes. I pray that My Great Lord will keep my embies safe and healthy. I have to talk to myself about this all the time. I have to remind myself that my other babies got stuck in my tubes and it was unfortunate and not meant to be at that time. I saw these beautiful embies enter my uterus and glow with glory. I did have a scare yesterday again. I had some mild pink spotting when I wiped. I did do more than I have in a while so maybe that was it. Whatever it was, it scares me to no end. I have to remind myself that there is nothing I can do but pray and take good care of myself.
I did get my Dr to agree to do my sonogram at 6weeks instead of 7. So if all is good with my labs this friday, sonogram is on for Tuesday the 3rd. Dear God, please let me have good numbers this friday. I am still taking hpt's becaue I am a poas-aholic. I take FRER's. The test line is super dark and the control line is light but they have stayed that way for a few days now. I do wonder if this is what they are going to look like from now on even if beta is going up. I know I should stop testing but thats easier said than done.
Lastly I asked to stay on PIO injections. They said I could change to Crinone but with my deductable not being met yet, it was going to cost me more than the PIO. The injections dont bother me at all. Sure I get sore the day after but only on one side. I keep a heat patch on it and it is ready to go in 2 days again. I am going to buy a few Crinone to use on my vacation. One of the other reasons I chose to not do the Crinone full time is what I read about the build up. I have never had yeast infections or much of anything going on down there and I really dont want to.
So wonderful ladies, I feel pretty good. I do get tired easily and often but thank God I am home most of the time. I do have my fears and sometimes they become overwhelming. I do settle down and do the only thing I can. And that is Pray and have Faith in Miracles.
