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!
