I had my fun filled annual ob appointment yesterday. It was pretty uneventful, but my doctor did order another round of hormone tests, which I was grateful for. I’m going to go in on CD3 for them to check Prolactin, FSH, and my thyorid levels and on CD25 for Progesterone. These of course were all irregular last year, so I’m praying for better results this time.

Last year when I did this, I was freaking out before my appointment. I mean losing sleep knowing I would have to give blood. Silly, right? Well, I pass out whenever they draw blood and I absolute hate that feeling. However, after all my numbers came back irregular and had to give many more samples, I just kept telling myself this was all for the sake of having a child and it seemed to get better each time!

So….. I’m hoping I will have that same mindset this round!! Bring on the needles!

    Hi from ICLW. I can relate to the blood-letting fears. I passed out once many years ago when I had bloodwork done and for the next several times, insisted on having company come with me whenever I needed labs! Now I just don’t look and ask the tech to give me a warning when he/she is about to insert the needle. Makes me shudder just to write that!
