My ovaries have regained their rockstar status.
I just finished up my phone consult with Dr. Greene. He assured me that all of my CD3 blood test results are perfect-even my AMH. Of course the the pessimist in me reared her ugly head and asked him if he was sure, ruthlessly questioning him about 0-7ng/mL being the norm, with higher results being better. He assured me that 2.8ng/mL is an excellent number, and the higher the better is not always the case because AMH hormone levels specify mostly immature eggs, and in this case "too good isn't a good thing". He said that-given all of the factors in our situation-he has no reason to believe that we'd have any trouble producing not only a valid pregnancy with IVF, but also plenty of high quality eggs to use for future pregnancies.
:::Insert *sigh* of relief:::
In way of preparation, I have an e-mail in to the coordinator to finalize our next steps in the process; we're hoping to cycle in June. I've also ordered another three month supply of ConceptionXR vitamins especially formulated for IVF cycles, and we're both ditching simple carbs in exchange for a watered down version of the Zone diet and a healthy gym routine.
Oh. Which reminds me of another blessing today. After our good news, I decided to go for a celebratory Starbucks Mint Mocha Frappachino (I know, NOT on the Zone diet, shame on me) and immediately after ordering and pulling forward I realized I didn't have my wallet. But for fear of being rude, instead of speeding off when my time at the drive through window came up I apologized to the man and explained that I forgot my wallet, expressing my thorough embarrassment for his wasted time. He smiled as he handed me the drink, and told me this one was on him. Such a sweet coffee man. Who doesn't love FREE Frapachinos?!?
Just so you know, I have serious intentions of returning to Starbucks and paying for that Frappachino. Because if for no other reason than a clear conscience, we're doing everything we can to prepare ourselves financially, physically, mentally, and spiritually to move forward. And stealing a Frappachino is a far cry from the right direction.
