So Tuesday was my SIS and it went great!  Everything looked good he said BUT it was sooo painful.  Ugh it hurt so bad.  I had to go there with a full bladder (my bladder is half the size it should be) and plus they were 2 hours behind so I was literally about to **** everywhere.  Then they had to fill my uterus up and omg when they inserted the catheter and THEN the "fairy wand" I wanted to come off the table.  He asked if I was okay and was asking if I had any idea why it was hurting so bad and I had to tell him that I have a bladder disease called Interstitial Cystitis and he said "oh wow, no wonder, OKAY we're good!!!  I saw everything I needed, lets get this out of her".  So when I was ready to leave and he called me to the side and said "Look, you've been waiting a really really long time, It doesn't matter if your insurance covers this test or not, it's on me.  You won't be charged a dime for having to wait so long".   Yall, he's amazing.  I really love my Dr. already.  He did my first surgery about 4 years ago and I'm so glad I've came back to him.  

SO yesterday I had to go back and meet with him.  I talked with him about an hour lol and he went over everything, top to bottom, beginning to end.  He asked me how I was feeling and I told him "nervous, hopeful, doubtful, scared" and he hugged me and said " that's all normal, it's going to be okay!".  So after my "therapy" talk lol, I saw the financial lady.  Went over cost and everything and I was supposed to see the nurse but apparently she was super busy.  I have to go back to see her and have her go over my meds, get them ordered and she's supposed to show me how to do them.  I'm going to upload a picture of my protocol and if you ladies don't mind, can you offer some help?   The Stim meds I'm on, is that a lot?  Is it a normal amount?  I know some have to have more than others and I was just wondering where I stand.   Also this cyroscreen?  What's that all about? lol.  

It looks like I'll be starting meds on June 5th. :D

Hi Des
Great to hear your SIS went great.I would say from my opinion its not a high dose or a low dose its about average. I was on 450 iu of follistim and 450iu of menopur a day for 15 days. They will see how you respond to the stims if you respond well then they will leave the dose the same if you dont respond well they will up the meds. I cant wait til you announce your  pregnant.
Dont  count me as 100% on this but i think cryroscreen is blood test for common chromosomal abnormalities.

I think everything is looking great!! I am so excited that you have a doctor who really cares about you and giving you the best care possible; for you and your unborn child!! Because of the excellent care you are receiving, I have no doubt in my mind that you will be announcing your BFP soon and I cannot wait to hear the amazing news. I am so excited for you Des; here's to June!! Woot, woot....

Thank you ladies so so much!!!  I'm getting excited!! :D  

I'm not huge, just chunky I'll call it lol.  Anyways, I have a small lower belly roll and Brian has been trying to rub my stomach more here lately.  Well I'm a little embarrassed by it naturally and ask him to stop and he said to me yesterday "When you get pregnant and this thing is sticking all out there then what are you going to do?   I said.. "I'll let you rub it all day everyday" lol.  He said "you got that right".   It warms my heart that he's thinking about this and wanting this as much as I am.  He's an amazing man, I know without a doubt he'll be an amazing father too!

I'm supposed to have a phone consult with the Nurse tomorrow since I didn't get to see her the other day. Hoping I can get an understanding of all of this. Yowza!

I'm not sure about any of this Des but do know that you and hobby are so deserving of this more than words can express I pray that this first cycle will also be your last because the ending result will be a beautiful healthy baby or two... Lol I can't imagine anyone more deserving of a little one than you.... You are in my thoughts and prayers as usual but more than anything through this trying time
