Abnormally Normal

Friday, March 22nd, 2013.  CD10.


So I got my labs back from Tuesday’s excursion to Dr. F’s office…

My hysteroscopy looked great.  I have a perfect uterus and beautifully open tubes.

My thyroid panel looked great.  I have completely normal levels in all areas, including thyroid antibodies.

My B-12 level looked great.  I have a level that’s in the upper ranges of normal and needs no further supplementation.



So… I’m great then?


Then why won’t my great hormones and great reproductive organs produce a great baby?



I might buy this, you know, for doctor’s appointments.


Anyway, so that happened.


I just love having all of these normal labs and still having some major malfunction in the junk region.

Heh.  That kind of rhymed.

Okay, back on track….

To sum up (because obviously there is no time to e’splain…):

My labs are normal, as usual.

My girl parts are still jacked up somewhere, as usual.

I shall continue with my vitamins and supplements, as usual.

I shall begin taking Metformin, possibly this weekend.

Because Met can cause B-12 deficiency or absorption issues, I shall take an extra B-12 supplement along with my prenatal, D3, and Pregnitude, despite the doctor’s insistence that it’s not necessary.

I shall continue this cycle with TCM, but discontinue the herbs next cycle…

When Aunt Flo shows her ugly face next time around, I will move forward with another medicated cycle, with IUI and acupuncture.


So there you have it.  Decisions made.


Suck on THAT.

Life’s too short to hem and haw…

I’ve got better things to do than vacillate for months at a time, and my eggs aren’t getting any younger!
