Well, went the the RE today. And cried. I always cry. I try so hard not to, but I always do. Sigh. Before I got there, I was pretty proud of myself - I'm at 4 pounds to go, and from what I remember when we met last, I needed to be to that goal weight by the end of June. And he said that my approval for the IVF at his clinic didn't go through because of my weight. That I needed to lose those 4 pounds... and I was like I KNOW! But I thought I had another month?!?!?!
And then the crying started. The good news is that he is going to call the insurance coordinator and explain everything today, and he is sure he can get them to approve us for a cycle starting end of June. But I was still tearing up at this point.
There was a lot of good news - my blood work came back, and my LH level was 3.2 - he said I may be 31 years old, but my ovaries are 24! And that I'll go through menopause in my late 50's at the earliest. And everything else on my blood work (and Aaron's) looked perfect. The current plan is this:
Continue to lose weight (and not cry about it so much)
CD 1 (should be June 3rd) - call and make an appointment for CD 12 to get some final exams done and meet with the nurse
CD21 (around June 25th) - start Lupron for ~ 10 days
After period starts, start the the IVF shots, for a ER date of around July 11th.
It's good to know the plan - and the further away I get from the appointment, the better I realize that the appointment really was. Aaron asked me if I wanted to change docs - because he really isn't the most sensitive when it comes to talking to me about my weight... but I trust him. And I really don't want to go through switching docs at this point.
Of course, maybe I'm already pregnant, and I just don't know! Wishful thinking - but I'm finding myself poking at my boobs - 'are they sore'? If I keep on poking, they damn well should be! AF is expected this weekend.. so not to much longer to wonder.
