Off to the Races

I woke up this morning with an even lighter period than yesterday.  I decided to call C.CRM and ask what I should do.  My nurse was out so I spoke to one of the backup nurses (Annie), who was really great.  We mutually decided that my period was probably lighter because of the hysteroscopy and that we should consider yesterday Day 1.  So I'm off to the races!

I get Day 3 bloods drawn tomorrow and will start estrace.  Friday I will start testosterone priming.  And Monday I have my HSG.  Things are moving along now.  The only issue I will have is doing another testosterone test while I'm off getting married - hopefully C.CRM will give me some flexibility on that one.

I really hope all of this effort won't be in vain!  I am going to try to keep a "what will be, will be" attitude for this cycle.  High hopes but low expectations.  

Sometimes I wish I had a fast forward button for life - I want to blow past all of the anxiety and fear and worry that will be coming over the next few months and arrive at whatever the result is.  Even if it's failure, at least I would know the answer.  It's the waiting that kills you....  


  1. Newbie - I am so with you on the fast forward button. I want to get to the good parts already! Glad you have figured out Day 1 and can move full steam ahead with your cycle.
    Thanks for your encouragement in your comment. What will be will be, right?

  2. That's good news! You're on your way! And, yes, the waiting is torture. Hang in there!
