So… offically, we have been ttc for over a year now. No bfp… still havent got my hubby checked but we wont be doing that till Jan (thats when his insurance kicks in) I have insurance, so no worries there! But I have been to the doctor… I have regular cycles, tempted (stopped after it became stressful), use opk, shows that I ovulate… etc etc etc.
Well, from the basic tests (meaning a basic check up from my gyno and an ultasound) I look as if nothing is wrong. I will be making another appt soon for more invasive testing. Well, Ive been thinking….
Ever since we started ttc, my groin lymph node would swell and become painful during my period. At first, I read that some girls go through this and thought it was no big deal but after 5 months… I caved in went into my doctors. Well, I guess this was a red flag and I got a whole bunch of blood tests, the ultrasound, and to their surprise… Im healthy. Extremely healthy. And i was given antibotics and told to come back if it continues. Well, the swelling became less during my cycle… so I decided not to bother. I have been back to the doctors for other reasons and have told them it still swells once a month… and looking at my test, they arent worried.
Then… I was sitting here… thinking… lymph nodes help filter out infection. right?! And filter out other bad stuff. Well, what if… the sperm and egg are meeting but not implanting … and then my body is working in over-drive during my cycle to clean it all out… so my lymph node swells. (Like, I said this swelling has only started since ttc) …. so I was researching how to help implantation… and baby asprin. It thins the blood and supports the liniing…. Well, what if thats what I need?
Yes, I could be crazy and offically gone nuts from all this ttc! But, I could also be on to something!! (haha maybe I should have been a doctor!?) jk … im just crazy.
And I will talk to my doctor about this and about taking baby asprin but im going to self medicate and start this cycle. (Im pretty healthy, and in tune with my body… so i get any bad juju feelings about adding this, ill stop) ….
Just thinking out loud. Hoping this may help!! 🙂
