Hi there everybody,
I am a happy chappy today because I had a great visit with the fertility specialist. I know, I know… previously I was all ready to jump ship on this guy, but I decided to stick it out and this time he was much more personable. I had only lost a kilo, but he was still happy with that. He also gave me the good news that I ovulated last month! Huzzah! Something works! Something works without medical intervention and drugs that make you go all cray cray! This is such good news. I told my Husband that I wanted to high five my ovaries for a job well done, he looked at me like I had sprouted an extra head.
But wait… there’s more… When I was first put on Metformin approximately 3 months ago(ish) my Insulin level was 57. For those of you reading who do not have much experience in this area (Don’t be worried if you don’t. I had no clue what it meant when they first told me) the normal human being has a level of 10 or under. Therefore I was more than 5 times the maximum amount I should have been. Well… my level is now 21!!!!! I have managed to bring it down 36 points! That’s huge! So, so happy. Even though I am not pregnant for Christmas, my health is in a much better position now than it was just 3 months ago. To be honest I think that is more important, I mean who wants to inhabit a womb surrounded by an unhealthy body?
I also got the results of my second scan that was checking out cysts on my ovaries to ensure they had shrunk etc. They also checked for endometriosis… again. Once again the sonographer (a different one I swear) kept telling me was a nice uterus I had, she said it was perfectly placed, perfect in size and looked very healthy. Is this weird? Should I be weirded out by this? I mean it’s not like complementing someone on their hair and asking where they had it done right? “I love your womb, where did you get it?”, “umm my Mum?!”. She said she had a very clear picture of it… I asked her if she could see the for rent sign.
Merry Christmas! 🙂
