The Saga Continues

I did finally speak to my doctor yesterday morning. She suggested that I come into the office next week to go over options, which include possibly taking clomid, a fertility drug. Among all the lovely side affects, there is also a 10% increased chance of twins. Of which we already have two sets in our immediate extended family (grandfather and cousin's daughters).

I do have occasional and brief stabs of pain in my lower abdomen. But I'm so used to having some level of discomfort in some part of my body that I've more or less ignored them. Now I wonder if it has something to do with the cysts.

I was pretty upset at work yesterday, but an evening of grinding cranberries and moving furniture with my parents really helped to cheer me up. Weird, eh?

They really blindsided us with that whole furniture moving thing.

Twins terrify me.

You were so big, Sara, that the doctor thought you might be twins! LOL!

Well, I hope that you will be made well. In some manner.

I opened bloglines and it said you had 6 new posts and Sara 4. I was afraid, until I realized there was actually only one I hadn't read. I think. Phew!

Nothing like holiday chores with your parents to distract you from life. Good luck with your options; many of my friends have gone through this.
