I really have missed you!!!! I am not even sure why I have been gone..... It was like as soon as we met with our RE for the first time I just kind of closed up.... needed some silence over the whole fertility subject.. I don't know why, nothing bad happened. I can't explain it. I have lurked and have almost logged on so many times but for some reason just couldn't talk about it and I am sorry that I have not been there for you all. It really was not my intent and it sounds so selfish so I just wanted to say I am sorry and I missed you all!!!!
Our first appointment with the RE was actually GREAT! We LOVE him! It was so nice to have my husband actively included in this process besides just being apart of the BD sessions!! hahahaa I think that first appointment really gave him a whole new outlook on everything and he grew even more understanding to what I have been dealing with so that was nice.
At our first appointment we literally just chatted with the Dr. for 2 hours going over everything in his private office. It was so comfortable and welcoming! He made us feel like we were his only patients which after doing research I know is FAR from the truth. Towards the end of our chat he asked if I minded if we did an ultra sound right away that day and I said no problem. When the technition was doing the ultra sound he was standing behind her looking and right off the bat noticed something that no other Dr. has ever mentioned before.... He said that my lining was very thick... It was 18 mm when it's supposed to be .5 mm to be in the normal range. Now, I really don't know what kind of problem this causes so if someone could enlighten me I would be BEYOND thankful! He didn't want to say too much until he ran some further tests. SO I was in his office for 3 x's a week the last few weeks to have blood work and ultra sounds. My lining went down to 6 mm on CD 3 this month so he said that was an improvement but still considered thick.
We got great news back on the blood tests!!!!! My body is OVULATING on it's own!!! I can't even believe it. So, right now the plan is to go 2 cycles non medicated and all natural and if I am not pregnant within those 2 cycles than I need to go back in. So after all of the research and everything we felt like things were not as bad as my OBGYN made it seem. However, I am really nervous! I can't explain it. Emotionally even with the good news I have been feeling really depressed and hopeless and it's confusing me.
I took an ovulation predictor kit and I can't tell if I ovulated on CD 14 or 15 so I didn't fill it in on my chart.. Maybe I should just pick the 15th and be done with it. Now we are in the TWW!!! We are hoping this is it as we just celebrated our 7 year wedding anniversary yesterday What an amazing way to start out our 7th year of marriage than by creating a miracle from our love!
Well, I look forward to catching up with you all and seeing what has been going on around here! If anyone can answer my question about the lining I would REALLY appreciate it!
Hugs and Blessings to you all!
Molly- So good to hear from you! I've been thinking about you. I'm glad that your appt went so well. Don't feel bad for being MIA. It is perfectly understandable. I'm not real sure about the lining... I'd be interested in knowing the answer to that myself. Yay for O on your own! That is great. I hope that you were able to catch that eggie and that we can be on the Jan/Feb 2011 board together!
Thank you so very much! I appreciate both of your well wishes!
Danielle, I hope I can join you as well on the Jan/Feb board! I think I will faint if AF does not arrive!
Dawn, it was so good to hear from you! I hope you are hanging in there and please know I am here for you if you need anything!
Great to hear that you're back - being MIA is TOTALLY understandable. I agree with the other gals horray for Oing on your own!
I am not sure about the thick lining...may have to google it (I love google sometimes) - I'm interested in hearing about the 'why' on it too!
Glad to have you back Looking forward to your announcement of a BFP!

MOLLY!!! I've been wondering about you! I'm so glad that you love your RE and that he's checking your lining so much! I pray that you won't need the medical intervention... But if you do, at least you're very comfortable with the RE!
Oing on your own is HUGE!
I hope we can all be an encouragement and little cheerleaders for you! You're going to be a great mommy!
It's so good to see you back Molly!! I just started at a new RE and my appt went identical to yours!! It is so great to have a dr
that we can trust and feel so comfortable with. My previous RE was the complete opposite!
That is great that you are Oing on your own!! I'm no dr but it is interesting to hear that you have a thick lining. Especially bc of the chem pregnancies you've had. It looks like the sperm is able to fertilize the egg well, it's just implantation that has a glitch. Hopefully if your dr can thin your lining out some then the problem will take care of itself and you'll get a sticky bean!! I'm stalking you and can't wait to see how it goes!!!
Caitlin!!! It's so good to hear from you honey! I am glad you had a good RE appointment as well! I know, the whole lining thing seems to be what is holding us back and it's frusterating! However, we did receive so much good news that we really shouldn't complain.
Laura! So wonderful to see your pretty face! How are you??? Thanks for cheerleading! You are so sweet to me. Thank you for all of your kind words!!! They mean the world to me!!!
