I went home for a few days to see my OB, Dr. Karamitsos, so that I can do the pre-op appointment for my hysteroscopy and biopsy and follow up with him about my missing period. The first thing Dr. K did was do a pregnancy test, which of course was negative. It appears that the hormones I have been shooting myself up with since March, off and on, have just thrown my cycle out of wack a bit.
We have opted (along with my RE, Dr. Grossman at CNY) to just let my body do its thing and wait for my period to start on its own. They could force it on by doing the hysteroscopy, but they feel that just waiting and letting my body work out its own kinks is best. Dr. Grossman feels that forcing my period to come and rushing into a cycle is not what is best and if we do and the cycle fails, then we will be wondering if that was the cause.
I have waited this long to be a mom, so waiting out a little ole period is not that long. Once my period starts, Dr. K will schedule me for the procedure on day 21 of the cycle.
After my doctors appointment, my mom and I went over to her favorite NYC restaurant, Pio Pio (a Peruvian restaurant) and met my awesome make up artist, Celebrity MUA, Bruce Hawkins, and had lunch. Bruce will be seen having in depth discussions with me about the ins and outs of IVF in my reality series.
My mom and I went to see Motown the Musical last night and then grabbed food for her at Shake Shack.
This morning, I got up early and went to my dental appointment. I was supposed to have oral surgery to have an extraction done, but the doctor wants to do a round of antibiotics first to heal an infection in the gum above the tooth and then do a cleaning the 1st week of January prior to doing the extraction. I was relieved that I get to eat for Christmas and New Years. LOL. I had already planned to wolf down protein shakes for the next several weeks.
I have been weight training for the past two weeks with my awesome trainer. I go weight train in the morning at 5:30 am and then I go back to the gym in the evenings at 5pm to do an hour of cardio. I am very worn out, but I am sticking to it with full gusto.
