One year ago today my nephew was born. I was in the middle of fertility treatment that hadn't been working. I was so frustrated and defeated. Actually, I had given up on my fertility specialist (reproductive endocrinologist--RE) and had an appointment scheduled with a new RE on the high recommendation of a friend who was fighting a similar battle.
This day last year I was cursing my body for bleeding and begging a nurse to find me a tampon because we were at the hospital much longer than anticipated. Then I called my mom to pick up my Femara from the pharmacy before they closed. She knew it was a drug from the RE but didn't know what it did or why (Femara is a cancer drug for post menopausal women that is used to help women ovulate). Don't think I ever paid her back for that.....Don't think she cares much.... :) It would still be another month until I ovulated and a couple of weeks after that before I thought to test (thought I hadn't ovulated and was using progesterone cream to hold off my period until I saw the new RE).
Kind of crazy!
