Ooooh yum, there’s photos of Dr Handsome on the internet. God bless Google. Leave a comment if you want me to email you his photo (and you doooo!). That smile….ahem, what was I saying now? Oh right, so we finally had our 3 monthly appointment with him on Thursday. The first thing I do is weigh in. The hospital scales said 90.0kg. They always weigh exactly 2kg below the Weight Watchers scales. I’m nearly about to hit the 80’s and to go from nearly hitting the 110’s (yikes!) to breaking into the 80’s is frickin’ huge!
He had some mixed news for us and here’s where I struggle to know how much to share. He had good news for me – the weight loss is working because I am starting to ovulate now. It’s wonderful to now that the hard work is worth it, really worth it. Not just because I’m looking so good now but because it’s physically fixing me, you know what I mean? There are still other problems though and I still need to lose 5kg as well to get funded treatment. So we’ve been given another 3 months. After that we have two possible courses of treatment if we can’t conceive naturally – which is thankfully now slightly possible. Option 1 is intrauterine insemination – the scientific version of a turkey baster. This is relatively fast and we could start it pretty much straight away. The other option is IVF – which is big serious stuff and possibly the worst part of all is that the waiting list is ten months long. If we had $11,000 we could be seen tomorrow. But yeah, since we don’t…..we obviously want to go the IUI route. Right now only these next 3 months will tell which route we are destined for. I think it’s safe to say I’m busy writing up a big long distracting crafty ‘to-do’ list right now.
