One things for sure…my body is certainly cooperating much better in 2014 than it did the second half of 2013.
I used to get my period only a few days after stopping any form of progesterone. Last year after my D&C, no amount of progesterone would bring on a period. This year, since surgery, things are normal. My last dose of Prometrium was last Thursday. I started spotting on Saturday with my period and cycle day one, officially starting yesterday.
T and I basically decided that with us being on vacation next week and my body feeling wrecked from all the meds, that we may just throw caution to the wind and try naturally this month. This is something we've not done since last June when we conceived our doomed ectopic. Since then, I've been so worried of another ectopic or just anything that would throw off moving forward with our DE transfer. But…here we are, talking gestational surrogate. So maybe, it's time to just go all in.
What are the chances anyway? I have DOR and a chronic thin lining. Hopefully the scar tissue that was blocking my tubes has remained clear and will reduce the odds of that happening again. But really, I just want to be normal. I want to go on vacation, let loose a little and see what happens.
When I called CCRM today, my nurse is out until Wednesday. The nurse that left me a message said she was unsure if my nurse is planning on putting me on birth control pills or not.
Well, no matter, I'm just going to request that we skip this cycle. I need a break. A break from the meds, a break from preventing, a break from CCRM…(don't tell them I said that).
My body just needs to be left alone for a few weeks.
Then…I can jump back into the depoLupron (depending on the biopsy results) or whatever protocol we'll be moving forward with…
Doesn't this seem like an okay plan or am I crazy??
It sounds like a wonderful plan! I can sense your need for a break in your words. If you feel at peace with the idea of taking a break, relaxing, and enjoying your vacation... I say GO FOR IT!ReplyDelete
I will continue to pray for you. Sending lots of hugs your way and crossing my fingers you receive encouraging news soon!
Yay for CD1! I'm with you on taking a break from the meds for a month. I think it's the sane thing to do.ReplyDelete
Totally an okay plan! In fact, I love this plan! I think I even need a break from CCRM. : ) You have dealt with SO much stress and SO many meds the last few months (umm, seasons) that you TOTALLY deserve a break! You two deserve some fun!ReplyDelete
And I'm not sure if this is helpful or hurtful to note... BFP last summer came on vacation I do believe... maybe the sun and sand agrees with you!
Do you, girl! Just do you. :) I think this is a perfect plan!!! Enjoy that much deserved vacay! xoxo ...ReplyDelete
I think a break is a great idea- especially because you seem so at peace and OK with it! I'm praying a break is just what you need! XOXOReplyDelete
I full heartedly agree with everything Aubrey said!Delete
It sounds like a great plan!! A break is sometimes the best thing you can do for your mind and body.ReplyDelete
I am going to continue to send you lots of good vibes :)
I think it's exactly what you need! Trust your gut. Go with your instincts. You deserve a break.ReplyDelete
I can so relate to that 'i want to get things moving as soon as possible' but 'I need a break feeling' If it helps your vacation to go au natural -go for it!ReplyDelete
Sounds like a picture perfect plan! So excited your body is movin and groovin and that you've got a nice little getaway on the horizon. Awesome on all accounts!ReplyDelete
I took a 6 month break after my second round and it was the best thing I ever did! I am in such a better place even after my failed 3rd this past week. Mentally stronger!ReplyDelete
I heart this plan!! I agree, For YEARS I have been longing for the "throw to the wind" and after each IVF I felt SO pumped with meds. You go have an awesome vacay with your awesome husband without a single medicine!! I love it.ReplyDelete
I love the idea of you regaining some control over your life, your time and your body. I think this medication/cycle/ccrm take over is a wonderful idea. Enjoy your vacation, dear woman.ReplyDelete
I think a break is a great idea! I hope you have a WONDERFUL vacation!!!ReplyDelete
I think you should definitely take a break! Taking one month really isn't going to impact much, so enjoy yourself! You deserve it!ReplyDelete
What a great idea. I love those phrases "throwing caution to the wind," "taking a break," "leaving my body alone," "letting loose," etc...so good to read.ReplyDelete
Enjoy your vacation, take a month off and enjoy sex again!! I think that a rest will do you good and things will be waiting for you the next month if you don't get your surprise BFP. HAVE FUN!!ReplyDelete
This sounds like an awesome plan! I hope you thoroughly enjoy your vacation.ReplyDelete
I think this seems like the perfect plan. Your body needs a break and so does your mind!ReplyDelete
I think a break from everything is a great idea! I may be biased since I just took one myself, but it really helped refresh me, and I found that it was easier than I thought to change my focus temporarily. I really hope that you get a nice break to recharge! That's also great news on your body acting better! Every positive change is a victory!ReplyDelete
Glad to hear that your body is a more on track this year! That's a huge plus!ReplyDelete
I personally think that your plan for the next few weeks is awesome! Take a break. Enjoy yourself and your mini vacation. Take a break from the meds, the phone calls, the stress, etc.
Enjoy your time with your hubs :)
Get away and just enjoy urself!! A break is always needed to rejuvenate urself! Let ur body rest from all this hormones.ReplyDelete
