No real updates on the TTC front. I am 6 dpo, in that no man's land between the excitement of confirming that I actually ovulated and the excitement of being far enough into the TWW to take a pregnancy test.
The biggest thing on my mind right now is figuring out how to get my 7 dpo progesterone bloodwork done. It seems easy, right? Walk into lab. Hand over prescription. Get stabbed with needle. Wait for results.
Except. (There's always an except, isn't there?)
I happen to be out of town at 7 dpo. The solution is to get the bloodwork done at a Quest or LabCorp in the town I am in... oh, wait. There are none.
Okay, then my option is to get the bloodwork done at home on 8 dpo... oh, wait, that's a Saturday, and the closest lab that's open on a Saturday is 45 minutes away, and my family is visiting that day, and I can't exactly say "I have to run out for an errand. Be right back." and then not come back for 2 and a half hours.
So now I am trying to get my old doctor (in the city I am currently visiting) to write an order for the bloodwork, which I can get tomorrow at my old lab, and then get billed for. Because I love paying out of pocket for tests that are covered by insurance.
