Wow. You guys are so great. Have I mentioned this recently, how much I appreciate you? A regular post is easier than responding in comments, so here we go.
So, yes, still thinking about getting out of our college town (good call, Newt) for M-Day (coincidentally graduation weekend). Avoidance, as seen by consensus, is the key word. Though it looks like we may not be able to be traveling on both M-Day and the EDD. My RE said to call him when my next cycle starts and we'll talk about what tests (specifically CD3 tests) to do next. If I have a 28-day cycle, CD1 will be on 5/19, our EDD. I'm usually around 26 days though, and there's no way to tell since my cycles are inconsistent, especially following the delivery and D&C.
It was nice that my doctor took me seriously. He's certainly not perfect, but he treats me (and my husband) like an intelligent human. Talks to me like an intelligent person. Not just a patient. And he's honest with me. He didn't make me feel like a freak or a mess for asking my questions, and for wanting the tests. Despite the reason for the visit, and the pain, it was good to see him. Wish he could be my OB.
Something tells me that C would be right with you, Tash, hidden away with the video games, but that doesn't do me much good. I could try to sleep through the day, since I have become a champion sleeper, putting my teen years and early 20s to shame. I was up at 8ish to go to the HSG and after posting yesterday, I fell asleep around 5, heard the phone ring around 8:30 and C woke me at about 12:30am last night. I took an am.bien because I was afraid I'd be up all night, but fell right back to sleep and slept until the cat started knocking stuff off my nightstand around 8 or 9am. That is a LOT of sleep. I didn't even take anything during the day yesterday.
Maybe we'll find something last minute. Still working on that. We also live about a 5-hour drive to Chicago, so maybe we'll do that instead. Just spend a weekend away.
Julia and Busted, thanks for offering referrals! Should I email you? I've added an email address to my profile, so you can email me, too. Just let me know what you'd like me to do. I really appreciate your offers. And any others are welcome, too... We don't know where we'll be in a couple of years, where I'll be (cough, cough) pregnant again. Ahem.
Julia, do you know Boston or the area? I'm feeling really homesick right now. As you all can probably tell.
So here's another question for you. How did/do/will you deal with due dates/anniversaries? I've read some of your accounts, but I'm still open to advice. The confluence of anniversaries and important dates (as luna notes) is making me a little insane. More than a little.
And I can't help but think, I would be close to having my babies now. We would be getting ready. We would be making and fielding phone calls about plans, results, appointments. I would be huge. I would be happy and impatient, scared and ready to go. I would be about 37 weeks. Due officially 3 weeks from tomorrow (Monday). Both the RE and the sucky OB said I would probably go 2 to 3 weeks early. So close now.
They have been out of my body almost as long as they were inside me. Too long, and not nearly long enough. And I can feel it. It's getting worse. Don't know if I can stand three more weeks of this. And the aftermath.
So, any advice?
