moving forward?

e2 on Saturday of 105. Positive sign?

The ultrasound was a complete waste of time. Dr Handsome did it - I was so happy with our interaction with him when he did our IUI a few months ago, but this time really sucked. First of all, he didn't really bother to measure the size of my follicles, just kinda guesstimated. Then he started going on to me about how I shouldn't worry, they were just trying to get me going slowly... you know, giving me a low dose of meds like sprinkling salt... - at that point he totally lost me. I don't know what he was trying to get at with the salt metaphor, and I don't remember exactly what he said - apparently I was already so angry that I've blanked it out. I hate being treated like an idiot. Never mind that I'm on my FOURTH cycle, and probably have some clue what's going on, even without my PhD. And, I WASN'T worried.

And then on his way out, he said to M, "Nice to meet you. I don't think we've met before". For the record, he's met M at least twice now. You'd think at least he'd say something that could be taken either way, like "Nice to see you", instead of blatantly admitting that he has the memory of a slug.

Anyway, I'm sticking with the 1.5 vials of Repronex for the moment, and another u/s on Tuesday morning. I've definitely come to like and trust the two female doctors and the male resident much better than the two male docs in the practice. Assholes.

Great. Now I'll always have a visual image of you there in the stirrups while Dr. Handsome sprinkles a salt shaker over your lady bits.

Nico, sorry that the DR's are being asses! I'm keeping my hopes up for you!

What is WRONG with these people?!? Ack. Sorry you had to go through all that. But here's hoping that despite his misplaced culinary references, this cycle is a winner!

And thanks for checking up on me - I sort of dashed away with no time to update & no access to internet...

Bastards. They're all bastards. Sorry you have to deal with all this shit. I hate those bloody wand doctors. How can they have so little sensitivity?

Sprinkling salt...huh? I swear, I think if we could put some of the male RE's in those stirrups and introduce the monkey wand, they may become more affectionate.

I read stuff like that and feel so lucky that my MALE doctor is so sweet and gentle.

Sounds like you are still moving...slow and steady wins the race.

You are still in the game, yay! Keep on moving forwards, kay?
