So, most of my blood work results have come back and lucky me, I’m not immune to Measles?! What?! I knew my parents were a bit flaky, but how did they forget to immunize me for measles? Isn’t this some medieval shit?! I’m going to get to the bottom of this the next time I see them!
In the meantime, apparently, it’s not a big deal and apparently, not so medieval: Recent Disney outbreak. It can become a big deal with pregnancy (why didn’t they tell me this when I was undergoing IUI?) so if you’re trying to get pregnant, make sure you’re immune to Measles, Chicken Pox, etc. – I’m sure most people with sane parents are!
What I’m really interested in is my AMH levels – again, this is the hormone that is the best indication of Ovarian Reserve – I still don’t have those results and of course, I’m freaking out a bit. If those levels are low, I’ll have to have a serious conversation with my doctor about what my chances are of getting enough stimulation to produce at least a dozen healthy eggs. I’m just not sure I can go through with this procedure and the costs associated with it if my chances of eventually producing a live birth out of it are lower than the average (which is only about 31% at my age!).
Stay tuned . . .
