May RE Appointment

I have had a crazy busy day today. I had an eye exam this morning because of the blurred vision in my left eye. It turns out my cornea is inflamed. The doctor gave me steroid eye drops that I have to take for the next 5 days. Then I return in 2 weeks so she can recheck my eye and make sure it is all healed up. I am so relieved that it is nothing serious and hopefully easily fixed now. I have only taken one dose of drops and I can already see better out of that eye. The best part is I don't need new glasses!

I had my RE appointment this afternoon to go over all the tests I had done and for a weight check. I have lost 15 pounds since my last appointment with her in March! The nurse actually made me get off the scale so she could recalibrate it and then had me get back on to make sure the numbers were right. Mildly insulting but what ever. LOL My RE was very impressed with the weight loss and kept telling me what a great job I am doing. That was nice. 

The doctor said my ultrasound looked great. There is no scar tissue like there was before from my c-section. She said my ovaries looked great, no cysts and plenty of eggs in there. Woohoo! One less thing to worry about! 

My labs showed that I have hypothyroidism so she put me on synthroid. She felt my 3 hour glucose numbers were to high and says I am pre diabetic. So she prescribed me metformin. I will be taking both medications once a day. I am not thrilled that there is something wrong but I am relieved that there might be a reason with an easy fix for my infertility. 

I go back in 6 weeks for a blood test and another follow up appointment. If the synthroid is doing it's job and I keep losing weight she said she would feel ok prescribing me clomid!!!!!!!!!!!! I won't have to lose all the weight she wanted me to lose! So I really have to work my butt off and make sure I continue to lose weight over the next 6 weeks. Both medications she gave me have weight loss as a side effect. So she said they might even help me lose extra weight. I am so nervous and excited all at the same time. I don't want to mess this up and give her a reason to decide not to give me the clomid. On the other hand I hope the medications help even me out super quick and I get pregnant on my own. LOL Either way at least we made some huge steps forward today.
