Picture Picture: Math in the Nude
It’s been a while since I did a Picture Picture. This morning I was eating breakfast while Professor Husband gave his dissertation one last proof. The light was low and the mood was so… I don’t know, academic, that I just had to try and capture it. He patiently pretended a camera was not 2 feet from his paper and let me play. I’m quite pleased with the shots, although he took one look at them and rolled his eyes saying, “Great. What do you call these? Math in the Nude 1, 2 and 3?” What ev’s Professor. One day you’ll appreciate that I took the time to document this moment 🙂
Dr. B called yesterday and informed me that my fasting glucose and insulin tests were all within the normal range, putting me in that funky relm of PCOS where your body and blood deny the diagnosis but your ovaries say otherwise. I’m relieved to learn this. While having funky blood numbers would have put me within a more solid diagnosis, I’m really glad that something is NORMAL. Normal is a nice place to be, even if your ovaries still look like giant bags of trash.
Dr. B explained that we can move forward whenever I am ready. First I need to get my records faxed to his clinic, and then work on having our embryos transferred. In the meantime I can do a 10 day run of progesterone to induce a period. Around CD3 we’ll do a baseline ultrasound and blood work to see how funky the ovaries are at the time. If my levels are good and I don’t have any big cysts he said we’ll go for a non-suppressed transfer – meaning no birth control and no lupron! Just sweet estrogen patches and progesterone injections and when the ute is nice and plump we’ll transfer the next embaby.
Y’all, this makes me so happy. I hated the month of birth control before the last transfer. Hopefully things will be nice and normal-ish in there and we can get FET 2.0 started sooner rather than later.
That’s all for today. Sorry for the lack of posting and commenting lately. Our Internet is not working properly at home and making it difficult to post/read/comment. Hopefully it will be fixed this weekend.
