Last Day of Work for the Year!
Today is my last day of work for 2010! I will be spending the next few days wrapping presents, baking cookies, and doing anything else that I can to get my mind off of the 2 WW. According to my nurse, I should be able to take an HPT on New Year’s Eve…. So I will be either celebrating without alcohol, or celebrating that this terrible year is over WITH alcohol…. We will see! Last cycle, I had some major breast/nipple soreness after the Ovidrel injection but not this time. I’m not even having any side effects from the Prometrium. Hopefully that’s not a bad sign!
Since my last post, I have done a great deal of research on MTHFR in relation to recurrent pregnancy loss. For the most part it seems to be very treatable and taking a baby aspirin as well as a special prenatal vitamin (I’m taking Neevo) seems to help almost everyone with this condition. But I’ve also read that having 2 “C” copies of this mutation (like I do) is also the most severe. Almost everyone that I have read about with the 2 “C” copies is on an injectable blood thinner such as Lovenox in addition to the BA and special prenatal. So I am a little concerned since my nurse said that I definitely wouldn’t need something like that.
I called her this morning and she told me that she would feel more comfortable having the doctor answer my questions so she is going to have her call me within the next day or so. Honestly, I will be fine if she tells me that I don’t need the Lovenox. I definitely trust them… I just need some reassurance. I want to do whatever it takes to not only get pregnant, but stay pregnant. If that means daily injections throughout a pregnancy, so be it. I just want them to explain to me why I wouldn’t need them.
I also asked my nurse about the possibility of moving on to 100 mg of Clomid for my next cycle if this one is unsuccessful. She said that the doctor will let me know if that’s something that I should plan for when she calls me. I need to make sure I have a list of questions written down for her!
So that’s about it! Nothing too exciting to report.
If I don’t get a chance to post before, I hope everyone has a VERY MERRY CHRISTMAS! :)
