Yesterday was busy..lol

AF arrived yesterday, so now Im on day 2 of my new cycle..I was supposed to star the pill day one..but I completely forgot..I was also supposed to call my nurse..forgot about that too..whoops..does this mean I have pre preggo brain??LOL

I got my blood test results yesterday and the report said normal for vitamin D, but reading the actual report, I am mildly deficient. My results are 40, but it says the minimum is 50 and ideal is greater than 75. I'm going to assume my specialist only read normal and didn't read the rest as Vit D is important for fertility. Luckily I was seeing my naturopath yesterday, so she has organised some high potency Vit D for me..the shop is out of it of course, but they should have it in stock Friday.

Also yesterday i got my letter saying Im due for a pap smear, so Ive booked that in for 3 weeks (oh boy..) so will get her to retest my Vit D and make sure its gone up.

Ok, thats about it..Id better go call my nurse!

New cycle!

I just had my RE consult..5 minutes on the phone and its going to cost me $80!!! cripes..grr.
anyway, there's good news and bad news..lets get the bad over first..one of my tests came back negative..or positive..whichever way means I have the problem..I have factor 5 leiden which is a blood clotting issue. Its inherited and can cause miscarriages.
good news is that it can be treated during pregnancy, so we are back in with a chance. He said it wasn't definate that thats the problem, but its the only thing that showed up, so hes going to treat that.
So I'm cycling July as expected with EPU July 16th. He decided hes going to use ICSI and..wait for it...do a double transfer!! He has been always against doing 2..so its interesting that hes changed his mind! I should get my period next week and start the pill then.

So I just messaged my accupuncturist to get some accu in before I cycle..hes away June 9 to 30th..I think hes been away at some point in each cycle ive ever done..lol.

Having an actual date should help my resolve to drop a few kilos. 6 weeks to go, I should be able to lose at least 3kgs, hopefully 4, but i guess it will depend what the pill does to me..sometimes i bloat, sometimes i don't.
