Yesterday's test day surprised me.  The clinic threw me a curve ball and had my blood-work done first.  Well I think that their surprise tactic worked to their advantage as I made it through without fainting thanks in part to the apple juice post draw.. yes I am a child I know.

The ultrasound technician was quite the surprise.  She actually gave me a motivational speech whilst in ultrasound delivering mode. Quite a talent I think!

So overall I will mark that experience down as a positive one, minus the firealarm that went off mid ultrasound of course but they can't control that.

I left the clinic on a minor high, convinced that we can do this, but over the course of the rest of the day my worrying took over and I couldn't quite shake the anxiety.  Today is a new day and I will try to google less, workout more, definitely hunt down some chocolate and crack open a bottle of wine at the end of the day.

Hopefully today will be a little less like yesterday.


  1. Ashley....I am so glad I found this! I will so read this when I get closer to these tests. I live for my end of the day work-out and post work-out chocolate and wine. Also...the bioflavinoids in red wine are great for sperm production. Now we have an excuse to enjoy it often! I'm going to keep reading....

  2. Great! I am glad I stumbled on your post on fertility friend and found your blog too!

I like comments (almost) as much as like wine!
