Manly survived the SA, but just barely, if you believe his version of the story. Apparently, the process was just as humiliating as the whole dildocam experience is for women. I asked him if he wanted to go out to dinner when I called to see how it went; his response, “No, I feel violated and I just want to stay home.” At which point I couldn’t control my laughter anymore and had to promise to make him dinner to make him feel better.
(Sorry, I’m laughing at him again as I write this, give me a second.)
Okay, so moving on.
Tomorrow morning, I go in for my glucose tolerance test at 7:30 and I should be done by 9:30 or so. I will also get to donate god knows how much blood for all the tests they have checked off on my sheet and get a ultrasound to check my follicle growth. Then tomorrow night, I get to start metformin with dinner — doesn’t that sound fun? So if anybody wants to chime in with tips on how to deal with the met side effects, I’m listening. I’ve heard that going on a low-carb diet really helps to fend off the unpleasant gastric effects and that taking it with dinner will help with the nausea. Anything else I should know going into this?
