So yesterday we had an appointment with Dr. S, our RE. Let me say that so far I love him and his staff. Seriously, they are awesome and completely put my mind at ease. my only complaint is that I wish that his office was closer but we live in the middle of BFE so I can deal with it.
If all goes as planned we will be doing an IUI next month. Dr. S said that if I do not have a positive OPK in 4 days that I would start taking progesterone to make AF come. One the first day of AF I will call his office and they will schedule me to come in for baseline bloodwork and ultrasounds. If the u/s and bloodwork are ok (he thinks that they will be) then I will start taking Femara and will start using the injectable Follistim. I will be monitored via u/s and bloodwork to see if I am developing mature follicles and if I ovulate. If the follicles look good then I will get a trigger shot to induce ovulation and then we will have the IUI. Of course the medications that I will be taking increase the risk of multiples but as most of you know, I am totally ok if we have twins =)
I can’t even begin to explain how optimisitc and great I feel after that initial appointment. He told me that I have received great treatment from Dr. M-the military dr I was seeing-and that he would’ve done the exact same treatment. He also said that he would not need to repeat any of the tests, including the laparoscopy which was a huge relief to me. Finally after 2 years, 5 months and 8 days I might actually really have a chance at getting pregnant. Dare I hope that it will happen quickly?
