Another step down the path.

I haven't blogged recently-- there hasn't been too much to say. I went to the Dr. about two weeks ago because I have still not ovulated/had a period. I explained to her that we are not wanting to get really aggressive about it again until September. That way if, by some chance, I got pregnant right away, I wouldn't be due until after I graduate. She put me on Prometrium to see if it would produce a bleed-- nothing. I didn't think it would. Provera didn't work so I didn't have much confidence that this would. She wanting me to start Clomid (fertility drug) in September, but I have to have a bleed first-- so that seems to be our problem at the moment. We've got until September to igure it out, so I guess that's a bonus.

I then went in last week because I was having severe pain on my left side. I had an ultrasound, urine analysis, and pelvic exam. My normal Dr. wasn't in, so I had to see another Dr. She kept saying things that were incorrect (don't think she read my chart) and I had to correct her.. So, that didn't make me feel too good or have much confidence in what she was telling me.
During the pelvic exam, she pushed on my left ovary and it hurt really bad.. But then she said that during the ultrasound, she didn't see anything abnormal. She wanted me to go for a CT Scan, but I didn't want to because I knew it was my ovary. She said I could have had a ruptured cyst and if that was the case, the pain would stop in a few days.. Well, I went throught the weekend and the pain was a little less and now is gone. I am really glad I didn't go for all the extra stuff she wanted me to. That would have just been more $$$ owed for crap I didn't need.

Christian is going for his SA on Thrusday.. It's going to be much easier than we orginally thought, so the whole process isn't that big of a deal anymore. It's just waiting on the results. I don't know what we'd do if the results weren't good. Realistically, I know what we would do treatment wise, but I am talking emotionally/mentally. We don't need anything else going against us.

I started school again-- Anatomy night classes. I'm in class Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday from 6-9pm. I hate the class- with a passion. But I have no choice. I've got to do well in it. There's just so much information and so little time to absorb it all. It's only an 10 week class and we are covering things that would typically be covered in a 20 week course. I normally work well under pressure, so I'm hoping this will help me along. Unfortunatately, with mine and Christian's schedules for school, we will only see each other Friday evenings and then the weekends- at least for the next 10 weeks.

I am sorry that everything is so rough for you right now. It definitely sounds stressful. Good Luck with Anatomy. It was probably one of my favorite classes, but I can't imagine trying to take it in the summer. I'll be thinking about you.
