Getting By

Thank you to everyone that commented or sent me a private email after my last post...it really means a lot. I think that once I get through these next 2 1/2 weeks that things will be better. I am quite anxious about my follow up with Braverman which is in less than two weeks. I am so afraid that he is going to tell me that what is wrong with me can't be fixed. I am part of an online reproductive immunology support group and one of the girls in that group had her follow-up with Braverman today and was told that her and her husband had too many genetic similarities and that is what contributed to her having a handful of losses. The only thing that can be done for this is tons of immune medication and lots of hope. After everything that my husband and I have been through I can't help but to think the worst. What if we find out that having a child is impossible??

Tomorrow I have my pre-op for my lap/hysteroscopy in the afternoon and my surgery is next Thursday. Then on Thursday I have my cancer screening at NYOH and Friday is my husband's surgical consult. I am also waiting to hear back from my Endocrinologist as he wanted to run some tests on my pituitary gland and thyroid but my appointment isn't until the 18th and I will be done with my BCPs 3 days prior...which means that I will be able to start my next IVF cycle. The twist to all of this is that he said that the testing needed to be done when I am not on any injectables or Prednisone. I called his office yesterday to ask if I could either move my appointment up or have them order the tests PRIOR to my appointment but they have yet to call me back...typical. I want to make sure everything is taken care of prior to starting IVF #5 but I don't want to wait another entire month.

**deep breaths, deep breaths**
