Not too much of a surprise to get three negative tests in a row. But actually although my experiment has not thus far shown anything, it is true that my hypothesis was not that I’m conceiving every month, but that I’m conceiving every three to four months. So nothing disproved yet.
Also, I think it made me a bit more prepared for the inevitable, and nerdishly on time, bleeding: 12.03 am on CD29/CD1…
The pain, however, is definitely worse. I am really hoping in some way they find something to remove when I have the lap and dye, so that I can feel less pain, even if it doesn’t make any difference to the chances of conception. I’m still confused, though, why it’s so much worse since the miscarriage: if I do have endo, why haven’t I had it all these years? Why now? How come it was so easy to get pregnant the first time?
But at least I have my friendly neighbourhood drug dealer aka Mr Spouse.
Me: How many of these can I have?
Him: Ibuprofen? It’s 400mg. You can have ONE.
Me: Pleeese…. It hurts…
Me: Oh well. But remember to get some more when you go to the GP, OK.
Being diabetic has one compensation: free prescriptions. Which means topups of things we both use. But don’t tell the NHS. We pay enough taxes, I think, and at least I’m not taking the piss and getting free cotton wool, which they used to offer him – he prefers to use tissues for his fingers post-fingerprick…
