Hello ladies,

It's been awhile since I've been here - hope everyone is doing okay
Well we are just waiting for AF to show and then will try another round of Clomid and IUI
We had our consultation and testing to see if we qualify for IVF this past week and we were advised that we do not qualify and that our file will be permenantly marked as REJECTED due to how my PCOS is - they said that I was too high of a risk to have complications and they were not willing to go down that road. So we are to stick to IUIs and Clomid and they also are going to request our clinic here do an MRI on my uterus. Have any of you ever heard of this being done ?? I have tried to google it but cannot find any information on it and my appt for Edmonton again with my RE is in December Sad

Oh Tacie, I am so sorry about being rejected for IVF. :bigarmhug:Is there anything they can do to help get it under control? I have never heard of an MRI for the uterus, but I am curious now. I am going to do some digging to see if I could find anything. Please know that you are in my prayers and I'm only a pm away:bigarmhug:

Thanks - your such a sweetie! I kinda knew deep down in my gut that we would not be doing the IVF route so it was great to hear it from a specialist and given the "why" to it all.
I thought the MRI thing was kinda odd myself but this guy has been doing this stuff for over 20yrs and has an excellent reputation (he's the guy everyone wants to see) so we'll go with it. I just hope that it does not include dye as if it does I don't know if I am going to agree for it to be done.
DH is kinda down about it all but I think he'll come 'round on it all

How are you doing?

Oh Tacie! I'm sorry that you were turned down for IVF. Sad That makes my heart hurt for you. I'll continue to keep you and your DH in my T&Ps. I think of you often friend.

Tacie, I hate to ask this, but have you ever thought of adoption or a suragate? I know this stuff is expensive, but they are options. I hate that TTC is so difficult for so many of us.

I'm doing okay. If we don't get pregnant on our own, there is nothing I can do b/c I can't afford IVF (insurance doesn't cover anything) & adoption is just as expensive

Oh Tacie,

My heart aches reading this! I can't imagine going thru everything you have had to go thru but it speaks volumes of the woman you are which is an inspiration to me!

I am so sorry you did not qualify for IVF! I have had an MRI done for my whole pelvic region before I had my laporoscopy in '07. I can't remember why they wanted it but I just went with it...... Please keep us updated on that.

I just want you to know that you will be in my thoughts and prayers and if there is anything I can do to help don't hesitate!!!
XOXOXOXOX

DH does not want to adopt - we have thought about a surrogant but then decided against it. It is all so darn expensive indeed! We don't get anything covered for fertility treatments here either - in Quebec IVF is covered! Crazy!!!

If things do not work for us in another year then we are going to stop and just spoil our nieces and nephews rotten (they already are but I guess a wee bit more can't hurt - LOL)

Thanks for your note - please don't have your heart aching over me. This is the road that God has planned for us and so we just follow and enjoy the journey .... I know it sounds crazy but it's true. There is alot of other great things happening in my life and I'm keeping super busy and not putting things off anymore (ie. getting a motorbike) because I realize that the we don't get to put time on hold and we don't get back the lost time we let go.

Did you get any dye injections when you had your MRI done? I am hoping it's just a quick thing where I get to pretend to snooze while they zap me thru the big microwave and then they can see that I really do have all my girl parts (yes, that I'm a girl!) and maybe find some answers. I will definately keep you posted on what all happens and how it turns out, when they actually get me in to have it done. The health care system here for appts are SOOOO slow.

Thanks for keeping me in your T&P -- all the girls here are in mine. DH teases me sometimes and says that I would get more time to sleep (or other things - wink wink) if I would shorten my prayers each day for you girls - haha! What a nerd -- I told him to suck it up (and of course laughed).

We have decided to start on the Clomid (crazy train) and IUI again once AF shows for October
