Mood Swings, Here I come

Well, I started off my glorious Monday morning with a fun visit to my infertility doc. He drew some blood and did a vaginal ultrasound which still showed a ton of cysts and a thicker endometrial lining. So he thinks that I just didn't have enough lining to shed last try so I am fortunate enough to get to take provera again starting today!!! Thank goodness since the hot flashes actually just stopped yesterday and I was already missing them. Who wants to sleep through the night and wear weather appropriate clothing???

So, I take my crazy pill for another week and then call him on Day 1. Sad that a month is no longer made up of dates, but cycle days. Then we'll schedule my surgery FINALLY!!! I never thought I'd be so ready to let someone cut on me. But we have a vacation planned for June and I don't want to have fresh scars on the beach! Good news is that he had mentioned putting me on birth control pills for a while to reduce the number of cysts I have, but this visit he said we wouldn't have to do that. So I'm hoping we'll get this done the beginning of May. Until then, I have some mood swings/hot flashes/depression to enjoy! Don't worry if you don't hear from me for a while...
