I have a quick confession. I am terrible at remembering things! I mean, my husband’s birthday was yesterday and I damn near forgot to order his present (thank the heavens for Amazon Prime!!!). Anyway, I knew my medications, both my injection of progesterone and my suppository, were running low, but I thought, “I’ve got time.” But then the day gets away from me (I blame Othello, the book I am teaching my seniors currently) and I kept forgetting to order more.
This morning, I realized as I was placing my suppository that I only had two more. I needed my script refilled ASAP or I would miss a dose. I would have called RIGHT THEN, but 7:00 my time is 5:00 CA time and no one would answer. I put a reminder in my phone to call as soon as they opened.
It was right in the middle of class and I was pressed for time and put on hold. Ugh.
I had a student take attendance for me and stepped into the hall. Once I finally got to a person and gave her all my identifying info, she informed me that I didn’t have any more refills and the doctor would need call in another script. WELL SHIT!?!?!
I got my students reading the play and then emailed the doctor’s office in a panic. I was under the impression that I was to continue medications until instructed otherwise. No one had told me to stop so CRAP!!!! I was going to miss a dose.
Luckily, the nurse at the CA clinic immediately responded and gave me the BEST news I think I have heard all year:
MY LAST PILL, LAST INJECTION, LAST SUPPOSITORY WAS YESTERDAY!!!!
I am free and clear to just be a normal pregnant person!
The timing of this… following those two SUPER painful injections that still have my backside throbbing… is just… well… just PERFECT.
I promptly ran across the hall to my friend, who is also a surrogate (pregnant with twins for two dads), to share the news. She hates me now. hahaha… She still has 3 days of shots to go and is a week and a half ahead of me! Ha!
I would do a cartwheel if I thought I could! Man… I’m stoked!
