9dp3dt and 10dp3dt

It still has not sunk in that I'm actually pregnant, but trust me that is definitely not for the lack of positive pregnancy tests. On 8dp3dt, I took 3. Yes, I already had 2 lines and still needed to take 3 tests!! EEK! Thank goodness I've had a bunch of Bridge Work Blogs business to fund my pee stick habit.

For those of you who are pregnancy test picture stalking (don't worry, I do it too :) ) Here is a picture of my BFP from yesterday at 9dp3dt. (It looks alot darker in person, I was too lazy to break out the real camera, so this is a good ole cell phone picture.)

I was finally able to resist the temptation this morning and did not use the last pregnancy test that is sitting in my drawer. I'm saving that for tomorrow morning before my beta. 

Yep, you read that correctly. I was able to get my beta moved up a day! I did have to threaten to change Dr's just to make it happen, but I was able to do it. So tomorrow at 9:00 am is my beta. 

My RE's office was really starting to piss me off. Allow me to ramble and explain for a few minutes. 

My RE's office has a standard protocol for IVF since they do 40+ patients every cycle. Part of this standard protocol is progesterone in oil shots (PIO). During one of my IUI cycles I had a bad reaction to PIO, so my old RE put it in my records that I'm allergic. Well when this RE ordered my meds they never noticed that and ordered me PIO. Could have been an over sight right? I corrected it with the pharmacy and they called me in  a substitute, crinone. Well every single time during my IVF cycle that my RE's office called to tell me how much medication to take, they would ALWAYS tell me to take a PIO shot. I had to remind them that I was on crinone and they ALWAYS put me on hold while they figured out how much of that I was supposed to take. It got really annoying when on the day of my Egg Retrieval they handed me a piece of paper out of my "chart" that said " take daily PIO shot until beta". I mean seriously, did no one think to write down that I was on different medication? I felt like nothing was personalized. I felt like I wasn't an individual patient. I felt like I was one of the cattle being herded through my IVF cycle. Everyone starts at point A together and hopefully we all finish at point B together. 

Anyway, I called on Monday and told the IVF nurse that I was headed out of town this weekend and was wondering if I could move my beta toWednesday (from Thursday) so that I could do my repeat beta 48 hours later on Friday before I left town. Her answer.... "No, it's too early" 

WHAT THE...WHAT!?!?! 
11dp3dt is too early?
Ummm, isn't that the day my period would be due if I wasn't on crinone? 

There was no, "let me talk to the Dr" or "let me see what I can do" 
Just a plain simple "No, it's too early" 

Of course, I started explaining myself again because she OBVIOUSLY didn't hear me. 

Her response.... "Oh well we aren't going to do a 48 hour anyway since your appointment would fall on a Saturday. We don't do pregnancy tests on Saturdays." 

WHAT THE...WHAT!?!?!

So when you have "You will return 48 hours later for a repeat beta if your pregnancy test is positive" written on my paperwork, you mean only if it doesn't fall on a weekend? This is the same Dr's office who scheduled my first IVF appoint on Super Bowl Sunday. They are open 7 days a week and run blood 7 days a week, just not pregnancy tests. They will be open on Saturday and they will be running blood but just not pregnancy tests.  

I almost has a stroke! 

DO NOT MESS WITH A HORMONAL WOMAN BY TELLING HER SHE IS GOING TO HAVE TO WAIT 4 DAYS FOR A REPEAT BETA! I DON'T WANT YOU TO GUESS WHAT MY BETA WAS ON SATURDAY, I WANT TO FREAKING KNOW WHAT IT WAS. (ok I'm done yelling now)

Long story short. The next day I called and left a message to speak with the Dr directly and made sure to tell the receptionist that it was because I was considering switching Dr's. 

Within 20 mins the IVF coordinator called me back and talked me off the ledge. Keep in mind I didn't know she existed before this conversation. She apologized for the way I was feeling, said it was NO PROBLEM to come in for my beta on Wednesday and then again on Friday. She was awesome! Not just because she gave into my wishes, but she didn't treat me like a total idiot who was not even bright enough to advocate for my own care. 

This has turned into a really long rant, but thanks for listening. I will be sure to update tomorrow as soon as I get the call with my beta results.

You go girl! IF is more from point A to Z rather than B. All the bullshit inbetween. I'm glad someone on their staff knows what's going on and had a better outcome for you. Goodluck with the results!

Travica said...

Way to hold your ground. That is ridiculous!! Congrats again!

Jacksmom said...

Good for you for holding your ground. I swear they can be so darn thick headed sometimes. Good luck with your beta, I guess while I'm on bedrest, I'll have someone's blog to stalk ;)

Marianne said...

Glad to read your rant, it helps us rookies! Awesome news on the home pregnancy tests!

Erin said...

I would be pissed! For one, this ain't your first rodeo, so they shouldn't be treating you like an idiot. Also when a doctor fails to do simple things like what medication you are on, it makes you worry if they would mess up on other things.

Cherbear said...

that would frustrate the hell out of me but hey...you got the beta for today and hey, you are TOTALLY pregnant! Yippeeee!!

Bridget said...

I'm so excited for you!! And way to give that RE's office hell!!

Deanna said...

That is so frustrating! What if you weren't paying as close attention and were really allergic to PIO? What then?

Congratulations!!!!
