candle being burned at both ends!!

I am sure we have all felt like this....


I am sure it is just from all the hormones....but man...I am really feeling frustrated today.


It was my 3rd u/s this morning w/ blood work.  I start work at 7 AM, but the earliest appointment they had was 7:30...so I get there early so I can have my blood drawn.  The Phleb is busy talking with her friend...is running late now, hurries and misses me, starts digging around for my vein.  She ends up having to stick me again.  Now with two nice bruises I go to the waiting room.....now at 7:35...and wait...I don't get called in to have my U/s until 8-8:05.  then have the honor of having to trapse around with a sheet wrapped around my waist to the u/s room, and assume the position...etc.  I get out of there at 8:20, and now have to drive another 15 minutes to get to work and start my day. 


I have no problems with giving myself injections, or having u/s multiple times a week, dealing with the discomfort after retreival....I guess it just seems like the nurses and people in the office almost forget what we all have to go through.


On the bright side:  Rt ovary has 10 follies all measuring around 12-13mm, lt ovary has 7 about the same size and multiple less than 10mm on each.


I most likely will get my afternoon phone call telling me I get to go back for another fun morning of bloodwork and u/s tomorrow....oh ya hoo! 


 I'll just tell the Phleb when she asks which arm do I prefer...to just pick a bruise.
