Wow - what a couple of days I've had.
So on Tuesday, I went to the hospital after work. My friend's water had broken around 11:30 am, and she got to the hospital around 4ish. I got there around 5:30, and at that time she was about 4 cm. Her beautiful son was born at 10:56pm. She only pushed for like 5 minutes by the way! It was amazing. It was the first birth I've actually been at. Really amazing! And now I'm a Godmother! Woohoo!
I got home around 2:30 that morning, probably fell asleep at 3:30. I was supposed to be at work at 8am, but went in an hour late. I was so exhausted all day, but I made it though.
So Wednesday night I started feeling sick. I caught the wonderful stomach bug that is going around. It kicked my butt! I called out of work both Thursday and Friday. DH stayed home as well to take care of me. He's such a sweetie. I was in bed for almost 48 hours, not watching TV or reading or anything, just sleeping and resting. I was finally able to get up a little bit last night, and by that I mean by going to the couch. I've just been so sore and achy all over. Today was a little better. DH took me out for a ride to get me some fresh air. I was able to eat a little bit of soup as well.
Unfortunately, for all his efforts, I think DH now has what I had. He went out with some friends tonight, and came home early, saying his stomach is hurting. I really hope it's not the same thing, I will feel really guilty.
DH and I are all better thank goodness. I had to go for a Catscan last week because of the elevated DHEA-S levels. It came back normal, so now I hav a followup appointment with my Dr on 3/18. I'm not really happy that I have to wait that long, but oh well.
DH and I have decided to not actively start TTC until this is all sorted out. I'm not really sure what other kinds of testing I may need. Hopefully after my appointment, we'll be ll set. We shall see.
It doesn't look like I'm anywhere near ovulating anyway, so I guess it doesn't matter all that much.
Sorry, feeling kinda negative today!
So my cube-mate at work had her baby today! Very exciting! She's been out for 2 weeks, and she'll be out for another 6 now that the baby is here. I'm going to see if I can get down to the hospital tomorrow evening after work to see them!
Woohoo! Another place to get my baby fix!
So my next Dr's appt is Monday afternoon to discuss what to do next about the elevated levels of DHEA-S. Since the catscan came back normal, I really have no idea what is next - more bloodwork maybe? Hopefully nothing too too lengthy.
Still no sign of ovulation, which I guess is good and bad. Bad because I would really like to find out if I can ovulate on my own. Good because if I don't ovulate before my Dr's appt and everything is fine and she tells me to go ahead, then we haven't missed an opportunity.
It has been snowing/sleeting here all day - it's the middle of March for God's sake! It just needs to stop! I hear it may be in the 70's next weekend though - how bizarre is that. Gotta love New England!
OK, so I just got home from the Dr's. She said that I just have elevated levels of DHEAS, and that I there is no reason to go forward with any other testing.
She said the bloodwork had been elevated, but not very much and the catscan had been more of a precaution, and that since the catscan came out with no problems that I was all set. She said we will retest at my physical next year, but that's all.
And more importantly, she gave to go ahead for TTC!! We aren't waiting for anymore test results or anything! DH and I may need to celebrate tonight
Time for my dustings ladies!
Nothing much new to report. I still haven't O'd.
Hopefully soon though!!
Well, my temps were up a little bit today. Let's hope they stay there!
The weather was absolutley beautiful today!
DH and I are going to be going for some walks in the very near future. Our neighborhood has some low traffic streets so we should be able to get some much needed exercise in as well as QT!
OK, so temp went down again today. Not sure if I'll ever get used to this!
I don't even care if I get pregnant this cycle - I just want to O so I know I can - lol!
My cube-mate at work brought her new daughter in to visit. She is soooooooooo adorable!
I've got the fever - bad!
I need to keep telling myself that this is just the first cycle and I need to be patient.
We got our taxes done tonight. We didn't do to bad, but not as good as I thought we would.
Thank God it's almost the weekend! I have lots to do this weekend, but I'm going to take some time for myself I've decided!
Although my temps were a little high for a few days, they went back down yesterday and today. Oh well.
DH and I are trying to figure out where we should go on vacation for our anniversary. We were thinking Vegas or Disney, but I don't know if I want to spend that much time travelling. The flight to FL wouldn't be so long but with timing and layovers it would take up the better part of a whole day.
Maybe NYC for a few days - we always have fun there.
We shall see...
