appt today

*warning: this is going to be an anatomical post*

i got my period on saturday. that means a 4 day luteal phase.

i called my gyno this morning and after telling them about my recent charts and this month's crazy short luteal phase, they actually asked me to come in this afternoon.

i wouldn't normally call after only trying to conceive for 4 months, but every month my luteal phase gets progressively shorter. and there's no way around it- you cannot have a baby with anything anything less than 10 days. it's not physically possible for the fertilized egg to implant.

i already knew i had something called a cervical eversion. all i remember about it is that it has to do with the cells in the lining of my uterus and that it's not normally a big deal, but sometimes can be. they recommended i have surgery to fix it about a year or two ago, but we weren't ever planning to have kids so i passed. now i'm wondering if it has something to do with my short luteal phases. after all, we're talking about a fertilized egg's ability to implant IN the lining of my uterus...

so i'm going to take my charts up to the doctor's office this afternoon and discuss a plan of action. i was surprised that they wanted me to come in so soon, i could've waited a few days, but i suppose that means i'm not overreacting and they really are concerned.

also, we found out that two of our best friends are pregnant... with twins. jealous much?

  1. Good luck at your appointment. Or, maybe you already had it by this time! Anyway, hope the plan of action is great.
