About my doctors apt yesterday!
my doctor moved or got out of the air force or something b/c he isnt in the clinic anymore so i got a new doctor. she is really nice and has put me on the clomid for 4more days longer then i have been taking the medicine days 5-13 now instead of 5-9. Last month I had a ultrasound done around my ovulation time and the doctor told me if i ended up getting pregnant it would have been a good chance of twins. so i am wondering about this month since i wont be getting a ultrasound done what my chances of having more then one is. i guess if i get pregnant we will find out a couple weeks after. my new doctor said as long as I am getting a good reading with the home ovulation kits there is no need to do a ultrasound just to see the cycsts...but is doing a hormone check at day 21 of my cycle just to make sure i did ovulate...i am ok with no ultrasound they arent to pleasent feeling to me. but like every month for the last almost three years i am hoping this will be the lucky month for us. oh the new doctor also said if i dont end up getting pregnant this month, next month they are doing the AI to me. i am not looking forward to that, just something about it kinda freaks me out. so keep me in your thoughts that this will be the month and i wont have to go through the AI. i hope everyone else on the board is doing great!!
What is an AI? Are they doing internal ultrasounds on you? Is that why they aren't very comfortable?
I wish you luck & will keep you in my prayers.
I hope all goes well for you! Please keep us updated!
AI is Artificial Insemination! Just something about it scares me a little and I dont want it done. Yeah they were doing internal ultrasounds on me, your so bloated b/c of ovulation and then they do the ultrasound and it puts 10xs more pressure down there, just not very pleasent to me. But hopfully they wont have to do that AI and this month I will be bouncing off the walls with a positive pregnancy test, hehe! keeping my fingers crossed!!
I will keep mine crossed for you. I tried for over 5 years to get pregnant, we were just about to have dh tested when I got pregnant.
I've had AI many times. Don't worry yourself about it - it's really no big deal at all. It takes very little time, and I don't remember it being uncomfortable at all.
Good luck this month!
My best friend is going through this exact situation that you are Jessica and I know it is hard, my prayers are with you. Keep us posted.
Jessica, keeping you in my prayers!
My dear dil is going through the same thing. They tried implanting fertilized eggs recently (first time for this procedure for them) and on 5/29 got back blood test results that she is not pregnant. The next day the entire family (hers and ours) were at their house for a family get-together and you'd never have known of her disappointment by her behavior. I only knew because her mother told me. It is so heart-breaking - they want chldren so badly and would be such wonderful parents. They celebrated their 10th anniversary on 6/4.
it is very hard to go through your right everyone that knows someone that is going through it. people around you that have never been through it tell me it is hard to find words to make me feel better b/c they dont know all the heartack it can bring to a person. it is a up and down kind of thing, your spirits get high when it is almost time for your period and you "think" you may be pregnant then you take the test and ONE line that is all and then your right back down again like a rock. i have seen so many negative pregnancy tests that i think when i finally see the positive one i will pass out on my bathroom floor!!! i can hardly wait to be a parent again all over...but i am sure my time is soon just gotta play the waiting game again that is all!
