Just had a great clinic experience. We arrived just 5 minutes late, the vampire took me back before I'd even finished signing in. Five minutes later I'd scarcely finished pressing on the cotton wool when the wand monkey called me. This was the dream wand monkey, so lovely that I've decided she needs to be called something appropriate, like Dr Kindness Personified (Dr KP for short, I can't be bothered to type that every time). I think, but am not sure, that she might be the same person whom I labelled Dr Accomodating last week, but I forgot to write down her name then so can't be sure.
So Dr KP did something different than the other wand monkeys. She treated me like a human being. She asked me about how I was finding the cycle. She asked H to move over so that she could tilt the screen more towards us. She helped me get my legs into the supports, and warned me before she inserted the probe. She told us she would look first, then show us what was going on.
The results are good so far. Four follicles on each side, but two on each side probably won't go anywhere, so she's not worried yet about the dreaded multiples discussion. The larger one on each side is about 12-13mm, the smaller about 9-10mm. So I have follicles. I'll upate later with the bloodwork. She thinks IUI probably on Monday. Next scan is Friday.
After the scan, she continued to live up to her name. She told me about how the rest of the day would go, she told us about the lunchtime meeting they have where they discuss everyone's blood test results, and how sometimes the meeting drags...she asked about our holiday. It was a fantastic, 25 minute long clinic visit, and I didn't even have to bake cookies to get it. By the way, does anyone in the UK take baked goods to the clinic? I think they'd think I was smoking something but perhaps everyone else does and I just haven't noticed? Let me know.
