The waiting continues...

About all I can do is wait. I is one of the most frustrating things I have experienced. I have noticed that my body is responding to the progresterone. Not only hot flashes, but I have also started to get a little bit of nausea in the afternoons. I also have twinges, very similar to menstrual cramping. I get short of breath fairly easily, and wear out quickly, especially in the afternoons. Oh yeah, and I am a little bloated to boot. I suspect some of these symptoms are OHSS symptoms, but my pain is not much more than 2/10, my bloating is not much more than regular mentrual bloating, and I still pee. I have been trying to drink a lot of water, and not do anything strenuous. I wonder if I will get a call from the Wizard's nurse today to see how I am doing. Hmm...

I have a doctor's appointment today. I have wanted to switch OB/gyn docs for a while, but never did anything about it. I finally got around to making the appointment. It is sort of funny, though. I made the appointment for pre-conception counseling. The main reason I wanted to make an appointment with her was just to get on her patient list. It may not be a bad thing. At least she will be familiar with my infertility saga when I do finally show up pregnant. I also adore her. I work with her in the OR from time to time, and she is just wonderful. Very smart, and very dedicated to her patients. I was very excited when she started doing OB again. It must be fate.

My other goals for the day: grocery shop, de-clutter, and clean bathrooms. I think that is not so outrageous. I should be able to do all of those things.

This sort of shows where I am at right now...

Hope your appointment today goes well and that there aren't too many (visibly) pregnant women in the waiting room.
