My Mischievous Ovaries

Tomorrow is our over-anticipated date with our first (and hopefully last) RE.  I'm so pumped.  I have all my medical records and ultrasound images together in a nice purple folder, along with DH's swimmers analysis, I've filled out the online paperwork, and we are so ready to go!

On a more mysterious note:
I have no idea what is going on with my ovaries (i.e. early ovulation - that would rock - or more cyst activity - much more likely).  I am going for an ultrasound this afternoon, and I'm going to beg the technician to give me some information (they generally don't like to reveal anything till the boss radiologist has looked over the results and that could take days).  I've been cramping and twitching and bloating and I just don't know what to make of  it all.

Seriously, why do my ovaries hate me?  Are they still angry about the whole 15 year suppression by BCP thing?  Perhaps they are miffed that I keep allowing docs to shove them around and poke them with sonogram wands.  Then again, maybe they are just naturally bad, and nothing I've done or could do will ever alter that evil plans for total reproductive self destruction.  The world may never know...


  1. Good luck! Ugh, I hope it's not a cyst!!

  2. I'm starting to think Ovaries are parasitic aliens that live in our bodies. I mean they can't be part of us, can they? Surely not when they seem to work against us so much of the time.

    Hope the RE is a keeper.

  3. Ugh! I hate that!!! It soooo frustrating that the US tech can see what's going on but can't confirm what it is. I'll be rooting for early ovulation pain for you. :-)

    Btw, thanks for the info on community acupuncture!!! Unfortunately the site you use isn't in my area, but I'm researching other sites. I never even knew that existed!!! That's why I LOVE the blogosphere so much!!!!

  4. Eww...I know how you feel. Stupid ovaries. I hope you get some information from them. So stingy.

  5. Good luck at your appointment! I have my big appointment on the 31st and I'm super anxious.

    As for the ovaries, I've come to terms with the fact that mine just hate me!

  6. Love that pic and hope your appt with your re goes well. Luckily at my RE's when I go in for scans when I am cycling you find out right away whats going on. Good luck!
