And now because of the title I just gave this post, I have the Grease soundtrack running through my head. Thanks, self.
Today I had some supercharged acupuncture. Usually as I get closer to starting an IVF cycle, I get a little electrical stimulation added to my normally relaxing acupuncture session to really wake everything up. It doesn't hurt, mostly just feels like vibrating and pulsing, but it certainly doesn't allow me to fall asleep like I usually do. She started the session by telling me she wanted to expand on the endometrial biopsy I had last week and would be putting a couple of needles in deep so they would touch my uterus. Say what?!??! Um, no, thank you. That does not sound like something you should be able to do. Surprisingly, this was not painful. Once the needle is in, I can't actually feel what she is doing with it. She did the same thing for each ovary and I did feel a twinge of pain as the needle touched, but it didn't last long. She then attached what looked like mini jumper cables to the needles that were touching my uterus and ovaries and started electrifying me. So now my ovaries are recharged and ready for some serious egg making and hopefully my uterus is good and ready for an embryo to implant.
And that's the latest in "What will Jen do this week in her attempt to procreate?"
