Don't you just hate it when you know more than the nurses?!? UGH! For my next career maybe I should be a nurse at a Fertility Specialist. I started having my usual ovulation symptoms yesterday but the problem is I was only on CD 8! AND of course I was hurting on the left side. So I called the nurse line and I gave her the spill about how they're supposed to catch me before I ovulate so they can stop it and the right side can catch up. She said... I quote "We can't control which side you ovulate on" in her nastiest tone. To which I replied, "Oh yes you can! You just have to catch my follicles between 1.2cm and 1.5cm which is really difficult." She said for me just to come in at my appt time today. I didn't feel like arguing and I figured if I was already having symptoms that I was close to maturity and it was too late. Guess who was right?? I had a 1.9cm this morning on the left as well as two 1.3's. I also had a lonely 1.2 on the right. She was flabbergasted! We're all so frustrated! Why is my body ovulating so early this month? Last month it was Day 16! I'm a whole 8 days early! GRR! Then she said the magic words "Can we try one more cycle?" She said it seems every month we say one more cycle but what she really means is one more cycle on the right side. Since I'm so early we will be able to squeeze in one more cycle before January. January is when we want to do IVF because of John's flex plan. So... one more cycle it is!
It's going to be close with the insurance though. We were told yesterday that we are pretty sure to have a job until Dec 31st. After that they will start laying people off. They want the whole deal done by Jan 31st now! SO - If I get laid off in Jan my insurance will only go through Jan 31st. Uh oh! I won't start IVF until probably the second week in January which means it will be done in February. I'll be switching insurances in the middle of the cycle and I'm not sure if John's insurance covers any of the monitoring. Decisions. Decisions.
I hope this Thursday is working out better for you than it is for me!
