I’m going to choose to take it as a good sign that I got the PA who does a really good job with the blood draws. Almost no pain with the stick and no big ass bruise afterwards. Had to have two vials drawn – one for the beta and one for the study.
Also had to fill out a survey about my opinions on PIO…I’m surprisingly blase about it. I mean, I hate the shots but I understand the need. It isn’t any more or less convenient than carrying around suppositories to “apply” three times a day and while the injection sites might get itchy they certainly aren’t messy. And this is why I need a text box when taking a multiple choice survey – the question was “Which method of progesterone delivery do you prefer?” with the choices being PIO, a couple of different name brands or pharmacy compounded supps. I picked PIO. My reason? It’s the only method that has worked for me. I never got pregnant on a cycle with a different brand. Well, I got pregnant on the Endometrin, but it didn’t last. It has nothing to do with me preferring the injections and everything to do with wanting to stick with the winning horse.
So, it’s 10:30 cdt. I figure I’ve probably got another hour to 90 minutes before Nurse Lee Ann gets the test results and calls me. She promised to watch for them and call ASAP. Either way, there’s chocolate ice cream with dark chocolate chips in it in the freezer at home.
