a better day.


I am feeling much better today, thank goodness. After I typed the last post, I started having symptoms of hypothyroidism again. My head felt stuffy and achy for a couple of mornings. Luckily, I went ahead and took more of my thyroid medicine on my own since I knew it had went haywire. My guess is that even though this was three months ago that it was tested and low, it was a recent jump. I hope that's true. My RE bumped it up to the next step, which is double what I am taking now when it jumped up even higher than it had been originally in 2012. I don't really feel like that is enough personally, but he said he would check it again a month from now, so that makes me feel better. He also told me not to worry about that causing a miscarriage. I don't 100% agree with that, but it makes me feel better to know he is willing to check it again in a month, so we can make sure it is in a good spot.

My OAR results still aren't in yet, which is aggravating. They should have been in Friday or yesterday. I really want to know! But I'm super impatient, so it's whatever. The nurse finally put in our labs for the chromosomal testing too, so we will do that during our next appointment. She told me last time that it was cheaper in OK than in AR, so we will have to wait until we go back to do it because I am definitely not paying any more than I have to!

As for me, I'm on cd8. I ovulated on cd15 last cycle and cd16 the cycle before that, so I'm assuming I will ovulate on one of those two days this cycle. However, I can't say that for sure because it is all over the place and could be around cd22 again this time. I seriously hope not. But a late ovulation is better than no ovulation at all. I had some hope before that we could start a treatment cycle next month but it is looking to be at last July before we get to start any treatment, which kind of sucks.

Hopefully I have some better information to update on soon. It seems like all of my friends that started seeing an RE a month ago or even the same week (in one case, the same day) started treatment that day or the next cycle ASAP. I've already had most of the appropriate testing, too, but I haven't had that luck! I think it is because I've miscarried twice and the others haven't, so they want to try and find out if it is anything "big" causing my miscarriages before they get me pregnant. I guess it makes sense, it just still sucks. I don't really think I have bad luck but I guess I still hope that I do.
