Part 2… Round 1

GST-674-07-770x300.jpgHere we go… round 1 with CCRM.

Blood Draw

Before Dr. G can prescribe the Letrozole, I have to go in for a blood draw to confirm I’m not pregnant. I find that to be ironic or funny.

A piece of me hopes that I am, that we don’t have to go through another round.

Wouldn’t that be amazing to receive the news that they can’t prescribe the medication because I’m already pregnant!

A girl can dream.

Confirmed: not pregnant

Ultra Sound

I then need to go in for an ultrasound to ensure I don’t have any cyst that would ‘eat’ the medication.

Confirmed: no cysts

Side comment: the technician did ask if I’ve heard of PCOS before because I have cystic-type ovaries.

… Funny.

Letrozole

Here we go!

Medication: prescribed

Dose: begin taking 2 pills daily for 7 days.

I understand the side effects to be different than Clomid and am hoping that my face doesn’t break out like a pizza and my skin doesn’t hurt like a stuffed sausage.

That was painful and uncomfortable.

Intrigued by the hope of Dr. G, I proceed with hopeful caution.

Hubby is a bit more skeptical as he recalls our OBGYN being just as optimistic.

I guess I just can’t get stuck in the weeds of the ‘what ifs’ and will choose to take it one day at a time, one dose of medication at a time.


Day 6-

The medication hasn’t been too terrible. Actually, I haven’t seen too much of a change except my energy level is a bit low. Praise God that’s all it’s been.

I’m a bit nervous that the medication hasn’t done anything for me because I haven’t had cramps or pains in my lower abdomen and just hope and pray that things are still reacting even though I can’t feel it.

We will wait until day 9 to visit the doctor for a second ultrasound. This will be the indicator as to the reaction to the medication and also where we will learn our next steps.

I am grateful Dr. G has not outlined every step for us as I was too caught up in counting days and plotting out our next moves.

I literally can’t do that this time around. I just get to live in this day, this moment.

God, I trust you and believe you know the timing for our growing family.
