Second RE Appointment

Well, I haven't had much to say lately. I have just been trying to stay sane. I am really focused on trying to get pregnant, and I am driving myself crazy. But the next few months will hopefully be different. Our RE has basically imposed a mandatory break. We can still try on our own, but no drugs. I am done with the Clomid.

At our second appointment, yesterday, semen analysis was good! Yea! So that problem is no longer. Now we just have to worry about me. He called my tubes substandard. They may still work, as the blockages are not complete. But odds are lower. We decided to go ahead with the IUIs. We will do 2 or 3. That's it, then move onto IVF. I am not optimistic about the IUI, I don't think that this is going to solve our problems, but then who knows. Nothing is guaranteed in this game.

I had my first wanding. By a student, no less! I was mortified. But it revealed the lining of my uterus is too thin. Likely due to the clomid. So the plan from here is to wait for my fist injectable lesson. Which will probably be in January. Until then, my met dose is upped to 2000mg and we wait.

I am starting acupuncture on Friday. I figure it certainly can't hurt and what if it helps, I have read great things about it. The acupuncturist I am seeing is very excited and says she has helped many people with fertility issues get pregnant. I figure it may be something that could be of benefit during an IUI or IVF cycle, so I may as well get started with it now.

That's it for now. I'm sad. I just want this to happen. On the up side, Clark and I are communicating much better these days. Yesterday was a good day for us. I pray it all works out the way we want it to.

I have had a great experience with acupuncture. Used to get hot flashes and my cycles have been all over the place, now I have no hot flashes and my cycles have been under 40 days, a miracle for me.

Hated the clomid, the injectibles are far easier. Are you doing injectibles with your IUI.

Yes, I will be doing injectibles, I hated the clomid too. I am still having hot flashes a month later.
