I'm out again on another business trip today. Yes this has been one crazy week. But I will be taking Friday off and will be MIA till the week of September 14th. So you won't be hearing from me for a bit as I will be on a BEACH! While our Flor.ida vaca in October was scuttled by my chief I was still determined to get to a beach this year. And since my BIL lives 10 min from the Atlantic coast we are crashing at their house for a cheap vaca. What I am hoping for is that hurricane Eri.ka will steer away from my get-away.
Operation Hammer Babies take two is officially underway. I have put my calendar up on the side of my blog. I have added in acupuncture this time around. I LOVE acupuncture and wish I would have done it last time. But, no looking back, this is our fresh start. And because I want to be as healthy as possible for a successful cycle I am requesting to do another TSH. Mine have consistently been over 2 (about 2.3-3.8) and studies have shown that TSH should really be under 2. I have asked my RE in the past to treat me just so that we are addressing every possibility since higher TSH addresses implantation. My 'plan' is that I get my TSH tested as close to the day where I start my Lupron as possible. Since that day will be while we are on vacation I have located a lab near where we will be (Yes I am apparently on a lab tour!) I want to get my body as close to normal as possible since low E2 will drop TSH and falsify results. By getting my body back on track with the BCP I can get my TSH more close to it's normal values. I know it's crazy but I just want to be as healthy as I can. And if I don't get anywhere with my RE I'm going to go to just a regular doc who I heard is willing to treat TSH over 2. I hate to do this but I'm on IVF #2 and at this price I want to make sure all variables have been considered.
And I learned something fun...We may be transferring on my birthday. I'm trying not to get my hopes up but it would be a great birthday present!
