A call from the Dr…..

IVF #2 Followup

Dr. V left a message this morning to let us know she saw the results of this weekend.  She said she saw the embryo we transferred which was perfect so she wants us to do a karyotype test which is a blood test for both of us for chromosomal abnormalities.  It takes about 3 weeks to get the results.  I don’t think she was aware that I had already made my WTF appointment for Wednesday but I am happy she is starting to look into further testing.  I am hoping we can get the blood work done this week so we are not extending our next round whatever it may be.  At the end of the call she said “I am thinking of you both” which was enough to bring on the water works.  I really like our doctor and she is very caring.  I really hope this next round works and we don’t have to move on to another clinic.

Vacation Day
Today was totally a “me” day.  We didn’t get home from the concert till real late so I have been a zombie all day.  I have been researching this karyotype testing and other testing that can be done.  I have also been reading, prepping my meals for the week, whipping up some salsa and pretty much avoiding doing anything that takes an effort.  I made some of my homemade salsa and made some Papaya and Mango Salsa as well.  I have yet to try it so I don’t want to post any recipes yet.  I usually do some taste testing while I am preparing but after the Fried Dough last night (that I failed to mention) we inhaled, I was feeling a bit sick this morning.  This is just a shot of the homemade salsa.  It takes a long time to make and now that our tomatoes in our garden have gone bye bye I think it will be the last time I make it for awhile

    That’s great that you have a doctor who sincerely cares and is working with you on your journey! I hope the testing gives you the results you need!

        Always a good option. We only have one clinic where I live and I was lucky to love them. We have another clinic 1.75 hours away but I never made the attempt to meet with them. My friend did get a second opinion, and they validated what her (our) clinic was doing for her and that made her feel better!

    That’s awesome to have a Dr. who is supporting you and taking initiative to help get you pg ASAP. It will be interesting to see what the tests come back with and how they can modify protocols to get better results.

    The salsa looked delish. I love salsa. And guacamole. Come to think of it, I love it all….
