Wrong Number

Someone just called from my RE's office and, sounding very official, asked to speak to me. Just to give you an idea of what a paranoid nutjob I am, my first thought was, "Oh no. They're going to tell me they realized they switched embryos at my transfer and I'm carrying someone else's baby."

My second thought was that they wanted me – having been such a model patient – to do a broadcast interview talking about how fabulous my doctor is, which I would gladly do (after my next highlight, of course).

It turned out to be a very odd mistake, though not of the switched-embryos magnitude. It was a coordinator of the IVF class calling to tell me that I was accepted and could sign up. I asked her if she was serious, told her I was due yesterday and could probably teach the class myself. Incidentally, this class was never offered to me before I actually went through IVF, and probably would have been useful while I was learning how to shoot myself up with various and sundry injectible medications.

What a bizarre phone call. What could it possibly be a sign of? Hopefully just serious disorganization on the part of that particular admin.

haha. Take it as a wink-wink nudge-nudge from the Universe. Aren't you glad you are Here and not There. After all you've been through--

That is weird. Glad it was not a switched embryo call.

Heh! That's just kind of freaky!

Congrats on, PASSING your due date! It won't be long now. :)

Hey- We are doing miso too. I don't know that there is an option to use cervidil at my hospital. Apparently there is a very large difference in price so because miso is so effective and cheap I don't know if they have cervadil at all where I'll be. I talked with my MFM about it and he's very confident in miso. But, did you know there actually are options as to how you take it?! You can take it orally instead of direct cervical application. It's actually an old ulcer drug. It's apparently a bit of a preference thing and my OB doesn't seem to have one. Since I'm "narrow" my OB thinks the nurses that start my induction may not feel confident in placing it on my cervix and may opt to have me swallow it instead. So, if you don't have a cervadil option, you might ask about that if you think it would make you more comfortable with the drug. Good luck induction buddy!

They must have gotten the "Needs to Take Class" list mixed up with the "Model Patient Who Could Teach Class" list!
