I gotta' pee!!

OH-MMM-GEEE--this whole full bladder thing was not what I even expected it to be; it was wayyyy worse!

Keep in mind I have NEVER had to have any kind of ultrasound done with a full bladder; also keep in mind my bladder is like the size of a pea and I have to pee every 30 seconds it seems-ha!

Well; when the Dr called for a full bladder I drank....and drank....and drank....and drank some water (and more)...to the point I felt like I could explode. My mother went with me today since Zach couldn't; and I told her on our way in the hospital that I didn't think I would make it to the ultrasound without peeing--I had to GO!!

After waiting in the waiting room for about 10 minutes I couldn't hold it any longer; I got this grand idea I was just going to 'pee enough' just to get the hurt away then 'stop it' so it still stayed full (haa!!!) It worked...I felt so much better (and still had to pee) so I knew there HAD to be tons of fluids left in there!!

SURE ENOUGH there was; he said my bladder was really full---so I am very glad I cheated and let a 'little' out! :)

The doctor said my insides looked amazing; he did another test transfer today--he had a little struggle with it today due to my tilted uterus; but overall said it went great! He talked to me a little about starting my Lupron shots this upcoming Wednesday--He checked some vitals for the anesthesiologist then sent me on my way for blood-work. Zach will be getting his blood-work at the Waco clinic tomorrow and will be giving his 'sample' next week to freeze for backup! 

I DID ask him about my nausea (although SEVERAL people have emailed me and commented that this is perfectly normal) I have been getting criticized by some people in my life--some thinking I am just a baby or wanting pitty 'How can birth control make you so sick'....although I knew how I felt and didn't feel the need to justify how I felt to these particular people--it makes me feel better hearing my Dr tell me exactly what several of y'all told me--'YES this makes you sick and this can be one of the worst parts'

I am beyond excited about this cycle; I can't wait to get things started! I have managed to keep a level head; several people keep commenting about how they 'know' this will work; and although I hope and pray they are right I am just thankful for the chance to get to have IVF done! I am taking one day at a time and leaving the rest to God!! He knows what I want; I pray about it every night; He has our life in His hands and we trust in Him!

Thank you for all the prayers; comments; emails; cards and support throughout all of this--it means more than I could possible express!

Hey, I'm on BCP at the mo, (doing FET in May) and honestly I feel sick every morning, just a light nauseous feeling but I hate it!!
Excited for you starting this cycle. PMA all the way!

I can't wait to find out how your cycle goes! :)

I'm so glad that your prayers (and everyone else's) were answered and that your ultrasound went well! Can't wait to hear more good news.

Rachel said...

That's exactly how I felt about IVF. I just felt so blessed that we would even be able to try it. Now, I'm about 8 1/2 weeks pregnant.

I'll be praying for you. Don't be afraid to enlist the prayers of all who are in your circle. I'm certain that's a big part of our success. You'll also want their prayers during your pregnancy too. I thought infertility was bad for the worry. I think I worry more now that I'm actually pregnant.

BTW the lupron shots are super easy. Don't fret too much about them.

This is so exciting! I absolutely LOVE reading your blog and I just *know* this is going to work for you! I just know it. I seriously can't wait until I read your post when you get pregnant!!! (and I'm totally hoping you have multiples!)

Glad everything went so well! LOL on the full bladder thing! They made me do that for ultrasounds when I was pregnant and it was SO hard not to pee my pants!

Thanks for stopping by yesterday! You continue to be in my thoughts and prayers. Love ya!

melissa said...

ha! That's so funny! Reading this post made me remember that I had to pee so bad when we did our IUI. I thought I was going to die!

Glad things are moving along for you!

1. So glad everything is moving forward for you guys! Yeah! And Praise God.

2. you bladder story reminds me of my first pregnancy when I had my first u/s. We literally had to stop no less than 3 times for me to empty just a little. I was in tears. My husband was freaked out b/c he thought if I was this bad just doing and u/s then what in the world would I be like when I went into labor! HA! (I was much more calm for the record. ;)) Anyway once I finally go the the u/s room I was still too full and she made me empty two cups before she could even see the baby. So yeah, you can over drink it. Now you know and you can cut WAY back next time!

Good luck sending lots of prayers and baby dust your way! It is your turn I just know it!

I had my first u/s a month or two ago. The whole drink 32oz of water an hour before doesn't work on my tiny bladder. I left for my appointment early and drank it all in the car on the way there. That way if I peed my pants it would be in the waiting room and at least I could say I tried.

Soo exciting! You're getting so close! I too felt really sick on the bcp when we went through our ivf's. Some people just don't get that everyone is different!
