Em went to see Dr. A for evaluation. She let me know that all the follicles look good and there should be plenty of eggs. She sent me this pic….so funny.
I’m still gobsmacked that this is going so smoothly…so far. Em is being SO wonderful about everything. In our many emails back and forth she always throws things in there like “Everything’s going to work out this time!” or “I’ll do anything to get this done!” I find myself clinging to her feisty confidence like it’s a shooting star.
She let me know that she told her family about what we’re doing and her mom and sis are on board and excited. Sis even hinted about being godmother. So good for me to know this, it’s something I was really worried about.
She told me that she thought Dr. A was wonderful and seemed to know exactly who I was and he told her to reassure me that I’m not to think this will be like the last time, everything is totally different now. He said to her “Yes…Paige…she’s one on my list.” That kind of made me wonder…does he walk around with an actual list of poor pathetic infertiles who can’t get pregnant? If he only knew how close I’ve come to quitting.
Anyone think it’s a little strange that I haven’t had a face-to-face or on-the-phone word with Em? It has all been by text and email…many texts and emails…sometimes simultaneously. I tried to call once or twice but she didn’t pick up and then texted in response to my message. I don’t mind but I don’t know….seems like we should have some face time about it…she’s helping me create life after all.
Meanwhile I haven’t had a period since April 3. Today was day 7 of taking provera. When will I learn to go straight back on birth control when I have a failed cycle.
