Tuesday morning I called Dr. S. He called me back later in the day and I told him about the bleeding. He wanted me to come in for the appointment anyway, at the very least he could do an u/s and wanted to draw blood to check my hormones. Feeling frustrated, I decided to let it all out by starting a new workout routine. It's the Nerd Fitness Beginner Body Weight Workout. Here's the rundown:
- 5 minute warm up
- 20 body weight squats
- 10 push ups
- 20 lunges
- 10 dumbbell rows (I'm using 5lb weights to start, hope to move up to the 12lbers soon)
- 15 second plank
- 30 jumping jacks
- Repeat a 2nd time
- Repeat a 3rd time if you can
- Stretch it out
I really need to remember to take a before picture and measurements....
Anyway, I went in for my appointment this morning. The nurse could not catch a vein, so I drank some water and we would try again after the u/s. Dr. S did the u/s and my lining was at 13mm. He feels it could be a lot of breakthrough bleeding due to my annovulatory cycles. If my b/w comes back with low estrogen and progesterone, he will put me on BCPs for a bit to try and thin the lining out. Once my bleeding stops he'll get me in within 24-48 hours for the biopsy.
The nurse had no luck trying to draw blood. She felt bad and was hesitant to stick my hand. Instead they wrote up the b/w and I made an appointment at LabCorp for this afternoon. They should have the results within a day so we'll move forward from there.
