An Update

7 Aug

Well I have been gone for a while. If I still have readers I apologize. This has been an interesting time for me. I would like to explain what happened in the most recent past.

During my last insemination we all saw that I received a faint positive on my HPT. The blood test showed that I was not pregnant. Well, my period was very late. I kept calling my nurse and telling her that my period hadn’t arrived. She never called me back. I started spotting but there was no flow like a period.

A few days after the spotting began – while sitting at work in my white leather desk chair – I felt a really sharp pain and then my period came on full blast. It was HORRIBLE!

It happened around 11 AM; when everyone was around my desk. I had to wait till people left for lunch which was around 12:40 PM to be able to get up clean up the chair and run to the restroom. I called my wife crying like crazy. I didn’t know what was wrong.

My wife had to come and pick me up from work. She went to the store and bought me new pants, underwear, and baby wipes. I called my nurse and finally received a call back from my doctor. I told her what happened and she was frustrated that my nurse didn’t tell me that my beta level was low and would probably result in a chemical pregnancy.

I was extremely pissed. If I had know that I would have been prepared and wore something more than a regular absorbency pad.  The doctor informed me that the nurse I was dealing with had been “let go” due to her lack of follow through with several clients. I scheduled to meet with my doctor in May.

Charlie and I meet with the doctor to discuss a new course of action. During my next insemination I will be utilizing medication and monitoring. So we will see how this goes. I decided to take the summer off. So our next insemination will be towards the end of August or we will just wait till September.


On another note:

I got a great stroller this past weekend at a garage sale – I couldn’t pass it up.


It’s a Peg-Perego Pliko Switch in Pois Black. I loved this stroller when I was nanny. One of the kids that came to the play group I went to had one of these and I just loved it. The one I purchased was still in the box.

The previous owners got it as a gift. When they took it out the box they didn’t like it because it was black. So they went and bought a blue one for their son. I got it for $100. When my wife saw it she was upset with me – she thought I spent too much money. Well, I had a few friends over with kids and they were so proud of me. They explained to Charlie that I got a GREAT deal and that you could tell it had never been used. I was validated.

    Ohh, BeeBoo, I’m so sorry you had to go through that! Glad, at least, that the nurse was let go!

    How terrible for you. I’m so sorry. Also glad the nurse got let go. That is inexcusable. That is an awesome deal on that stroller. Fingers crossed that a BFP is in your very near future! Hugs.

    Sorry to hear about the sh1tty follow up frim your nurse and the chemical pregnancy… Great deal on the stroller, I would look into the model and make sure it is not part of a large recall issued recently. If it is you should be able to get a repkacement tray that corrects the issue.

      I checked that out prior to my purchase. The version that I purchased does not have a recall. 🙂

    I can’t believe that nurse! I just sat here and ranted about it to my wife… that’s ridiculous (and okay, I’m a little hormonal at the moment). Jeeze! Glad she was let go and you no longer have to deal with her.

    On the plus side, awesome deal on the stroller!!!!!!

      Thank you for sharing your feelings with me. I was really upset but I totally appreciate the way that the doctor handled it. I’m getting my mind mentally prepared to start trying again.

    I’m so sorry to hear that. I hope the next month or two are restful and that you are roaring to go for next time.

    I’m sorry to hear this – both about the terrible nurse and your loss. I hope your next try is with a great new protocol and has the ultimate outcome!

    That sounds like a horrible experience. It’s terrible to know that people who show so little concern are working in a field where sensitivity and communication are so vital.

      When I answered the phone to find out that I wasn’t pregnant she was mid-laughter
