Wait is a Four Letter Word
I am in a holding pattern: waiting, waiting, and more waiting.
I am still waiting for the embryonic karyotyping results. I went to my OB today for my post-D&C visit but she did not have the results back yet.
My husband and I gave our blood today for our karyotyping, but we will need to wait several weeks to get the results back.
Now I wait for my post-D&C period. I still had a faintly positive pregnancy test last night, so I assume I will be waiting for at least 2-3 more weeks.
Then, once my period arrives, I need to call my OB and schedule a sonohystogram to check for any uterine abnormalities. She wants to do it as soon as my period ends, so I should not have to wait more than a week to have the procedure.
Once I have my period, I then have to wait until day 22 to get the rest of my blood work done, as she needs a progesterone level. This is when they will also run the fancy “miscarriage panel.”
I have to then wait for all the test results to come back.
I am still waiting to see the RE, but I can start calling next week to see if I can get put on their “cancellation waiting list” for an earlier appointment.
Once I have the results back, I have to wait until the end of that cycle before I can start trying to get pregnant again.
Then I have to wait to ovulate.
Then I have the evilest monster of all: the two-week wait.
Then I have to get pregnant, which will probably be another few months of waiting.
The optimist in me says: “then I have to wait 9 months to meet my baby.”
The pessimist in me says: “then I have to wait 6 weeks to schedule another D&C.“
