This week has been uneventful… then again it’s only Friday and all the excitements start tonight? I have nothing planned though… hubby called to say he’ll be home late and asked for me to catch the train home… He’s been busy lately… the weekend doesn’t look too promising…

 

I want to write a little about my first AF since the hysteroscopy, polypectomy & D&C. Before I had the procedure done I have been curious on how my cycle will change after the having my polyps removed. I googled on this but the outcome varies. For some people their AF becomes lighter and for others it remained the same or even worst then before. I had been experiencing a lot of clotting with AF lasting at least 7-10 days of heavy – HEAVY bleeding before the procedure. The doctor told me that this will improve once I have my polyps removed; so… the result of my very first AF after the procedure… did my AF became lighter? Not really… it’s about the same as always, but I’ve noticed the clotting has subside somewhat. I’m still experiencing some but the size and the number has been reduced a lot and AF this time around only lasted 6 days…yeay!! I guess that’s an improvement. But to be fair, at the same time I’m also on the pill since day 1 so I’m thinking maybe it has something to do with it? So no reliable result I’m afraid…

 

I apologize if this post is TMI but I wanted to get it out there…I don’t know if this post will help anyone as it only further confirms that everyone is different.

 

Well world… happy weekend… hope everyone has a blast.

Another bump along the IVF road… this time the bump is a cyst. A huge one almost 4cm. I’m gutted. My body has let me down again. I wish there is something I could do to make everything just perfect. I went to the clinic at noon on Saturday feeling very nervous. May be I knew this was coming. I can sort of feel that my right ovary jabbing me for the last few days, but I hoped that it was nothing. I met with the dear Dr and had a little chat. He showed me the result of the lab test for my polyps and they were fine. No cancer cells. I’m relieved. Then he said “are you ready?” Of coz I was… dear Dr told me we’ll go have a scan so he can see how many follicles I have and if there is no cyst we can start … we went to do the scan…before he said anything I could already see the cyst… as clear as day… aargggg!!! For now dear Dr has put me on Gynera ocp and I’m to see him again on the 30th of April… in 2 weeks’ time. He says the cyst will go away and there’s nothing to worry about; it’s just a pain that we have to delay some more. He understands my frustrations all too well.

I guess I have at least 2 weeks… I wonder what I can do to help my body out with this cyst problem… I wish there was a clear answer… a direct, straight to the point guide… step 1, step 2, step 3… not… if that, may be this, sometimes that… but life is like that… nothing is black and white… there’s the greys and all the colors of the rainbows. Just pray hard that this time around everything will go my way for a change.

To those reading this… where ever you are… I pray that today… everything will go your way…

I’m back… We celebrated dear hubby birthday in Sydney Australia. We also took the opportunity to just be with each other and enjoy each other’s company. We had a lot of fun. The weather was nice. The food was great and we did a lotttt of walking (among other things). I had a great time, no worries about work or the upcoming IVF. I haven’t been good with limiting my sugar and food intake. I’ve been drinking lots of soda and eating a lot more than I should. I pacify myself with the walking I was doing since exercise is almost non-existence when I’m home so it balance out (yea right). The timing of the trip was somewhat off though as my CD1 falls a few days before we got home. I called up the Dr’s office before we left and told them that I was worried that AF will come while I was away. I really didn’t want to wait a whole other month to start so I asked if there was anything I could take to delay AF. The nurse told me to come in and get some meds and I was to take it from CD1 to 9th of April. She set my appointment with the doctor will be on the 13th (Friday the 13th will be my lucky day everyone!) I know something can still go wrong during my Dr’s visit and I may still be asked to wait a month to start cycling but I want to stay positive… I want this to work. I want our IVF journey to be flawless and textbook perfect and above all positive. It’s so hard when you don’t know what’s coming. I wish I had control of it all… but I know I don’t.

 

Sending lots of love to all of you…
