Quick update...

I realized that I couldn't wait until Monday morning, because in order to be ready for the procedure on Tuesday, I have to give myself that trigger shot Sunday night. So I had to find out if the procedure was still a go-flight.

Luckily, my neighbor is friends with my fertility doctor's wife. She called their house and got me permission to call the doctor today. Otherwise I have no idea what I would've done.

He listened and said that it probably is just the hormone levels tricking my endometrium into doing goofy things. He said that as long as the bleeding is letting up, and it has, then we are still on track.

So whew.

Hindsight sucks. I wish I'd gotten a good night's sleep last night instead.

I'm glad your neighbor and doctor came through for you after the ER failed. A triumph of people over impersonal institutions.

I hope that the track to Tuesday gets smoother from here ... and that you can make up for the rest you lost, though I doubt that's easy. You must be counting down the hours. I'll be crossing my fingers.

You'll sleep better tonight. :) I'm glad your neighbor has connections and that you're keeping us posted.

Ugh. What a PITA. Hormones are of the devil. Here's hoping that your body is just giddy with anticipation for the procedure and this was it's way of showing it's excitement.

I'm glad to hear you are hanging in there and that you got to talk to your doctor.

I'm glad everything is still on track! That sort of crap used to stress me out like nothing else... everything is so time sensitive when it comes to treatment. I'll be thinking about you, good luck!
