Hallelujah, I have fibroids!
I just got back from my ultrasound, and guess what we found??? TWO FIBROIDS! As I said to DH on the phone, Hallelujah! I mean, of course I don't want to have abnormal growths in my uterus...but finally I have an explanation to all of my bleeding that is common and no big deal. :::::huge sigh of relief::::: The NP said that one of them is very high and not likely to effect fertility, but the other is in the area where implantation would occur so that could definitely be causing our infertility. (Then I told her about our MFI, but still. Even if one little sperm could get up there, my fibroid would be getting in the way!). Now I just have to wait to hear from the doctor about when we are going to get those things OUT!
I also have to say that I LOVED this nurse practitioner. Like I said in a previous post, this NP works with my RE to do u/s and monitoring for patients in my city, and I was a little sad that I couldn't just do everything at the RE's office. However, it looks like they have a really great system for working together and this NP was just so kind, thorough, and informative. There was another woman there ahead of me from my RE's office and she and the NP definitely seemed very friendly with each other. Her office was colorful and unique....It made me look forward to going back and seeing her again! And DH ended up unable to go with me...he did want to, but remembered that it was his boss' first day back from a 3-week vacation and he didn't want to get to work late today. But I asked the NP about bringing DH next time and she said, "Of course! Bring whoever you want, we could have a party in here!" :)
Now I'm just waiting for my blood test results...!!! I'm nervous about my FSH. Even thought I know I am "young," in this land of IF statistics become rather meaningless, you know? I'll keep you posted!
