Don't Stop Believing

Yesterday was the big day! We had our appointment at the FC (Fertility Clinic). It did not start off well. Our Dr. was an hour and a half late. My husband... not so happy since he was missing work. But he agreed to stay and wait because he knew I was so anxious and did not want to reschedule.

Finally Dr. Ovulation showed up and we went into our consultation. We went over everything that's wrong with me (nice, extensive list) and the things possibly wrong with the husband (short and sweet list). And went over all our options.

Treatment plan as follows:

Lots of bloodwork for me (done today). Glucose test for me (done today... it completely sucked). Provera to kick start my period (wooo). And then the wonderful HSG. And of course, the ever present transvaginal ultrasound. And my lovely husband gets the sperm analysis done next Monday (lucky... he gets to have fun in a cup and I have every invasive procedure there is. jerk).

He also took me off metformin because I have been consistently getting so nauseated and throwing up almost every afternoon on it and he didn't think me feeling like absolute crap was worth it. And even though I only have about two measly diet sodas a week with caffeine he's making me give it up completely. BOO. I really wish he'd make my husband give up something... He needs to make some sacrifices, damnit!!!!

He did an exam yesterday and I don't know if it's because he's a man (and I've never been to a male gyn til now) and I was a little nervous or what, but that exam was so UNCOMFORTABLE. I mean, I realize, not a walk in the park on a sunny spring day but holy hell!! I've never hated a speculum as much as I did yesterday. And that's really saying something!!

But I am excited for progress! We are having all our tests done this cycle and we're not starting to try and make me ovulate until next cycle because I am going out of town (back to Texas) for some weddings in three weeks. I'm a little annoyed that my trip is holding things up, but oh well. At least I'll be able to drink at this wedding! Woo hoo! :D

Anyway, Dr. O said he's confident he can make me ovulate. No question. Hence his name: Dr. Ovulation. So depending on how the S/A works out he feels confident that we're in business! I'm so thankful we came to him. We're still going on the 150 mg clomid but if it doesn't work he's having me do more than one dose of clomid in a cycle and possibly using trigger shots. We shall see. I am very glad that I have more options other than "Hey you. Sit and wait." Because I am sick and tired of waiting. It's my turn!!!

Oh, and Cinderella? I know you said miracles take a little time, but could I borrow your fairy godmother? Because she really seemed to know her stuff.


  1. I heart Dr. Ovulation FOR you! This is going to be so exciting!

  2. Great news, Sarah!!! I'm so excited for you!!!

  3. Thanks ladies! I'm excited too! :D I finally feel like we're making some progress!

  4. I'm so excited for you!! I'm sorry to hear about all of the testing, but so excited that he says he can get you ovulating! ((hugs))
