All right, a quick lab book style update. It’s cycle day 3, I went for my baseline ultrasound yesterday and got the all clear: no cysts this time, and both ovaries had burgeoning follicles (as the other doctor might say “juicy ones”). I have no idea if that is bad or good, but last time they looked that way I threw three eggs, so I’m hoping for something similar this month.
I went for blood work this morning: the clinic needed me to update my prolactin, and I asked them to add TSH and vitamin D on the requisition, as I’ve been mildly worried/curious about them. My TSH was 1.5 in August 2013, and 2.0 last March. I just want to make sure that wasn’t the beginning of an upward trend. My vitamin D came back at 30 last March which is the exact border of deficient/not-deficient, so I’ve been taking 2000 miu daily since then (opposed to the 800 miu from my prenatal before then), so I’m curious to see if it has helped or if I should be more aggressive.
Both my doctor and my nurse were really sad I wasn’t pregnant, and really really hopeful for this cycle. Which was weird because I wasn’t all that sad, and I’m not all that hopeful. I feel like I am mid-way through a long run, where I’m comfortable but just grinding it out.
So letrozole starts today, and we will take it from there!
