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 :lovebed: 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!
