Feeling Hopeful

I went to see my OB yesterday. I had called because I never did have much bleeding. They said I could come in for an u/s and to talk to my doc. Everything looked good on the u/s. Nothing left and she said it looked like I was building up a good lining. After that I talked to my OB. She cried with me and told me she understands because she lost a baby between her kids and said October 26 will always be hard for her b/c that was her due date. She talked with me for 30 minutes. She said she'd do anything I wanted as far as testing but she really didn't recommend it at this point. She explained all the pros and cons and it made sense. She also said she'd do anything to help ease my mind next time including doing as many u/s as I needed. She said she had free access to the u/s machine and "just come in at 4:30 and I'll do it myself". I love her. I told her I wanted to try again asap and asked her if I needed to wait and she said if she were me she'd go home and have sex. She said since I was so early, there was no medical reason to wait and that if I was emotionally ready to go for it. She hugged me when I was leaving and said she hopes to see me back in 3 weeks pregnant. I left feeling comforted and hopeful. I hate that she's had a loss too but it helps when your OB really understands.
So, not sure what my cycle will be like this month but DH and I are officially trying again. It would be so nice to get a Christmas day surprise!

Oh Belinda, what an amazing doc!! I'm so glad you're feeling so good about things.

I cannot wait to see your new BFP which I bet will be in the not-to-distant future!

Huge hugs your way :bighug:

Thanks ladies! I took an OPK Thurs and it was neg as it can get, barely a noticeable line at all. Took another today and it was still neg but the line was almost as dark as the control so maybe I will O. I know I can get a pos opk and not O but at least it shows my body is producing hormones.

Ditto!

I am so glad to hear your OB is such a compassionate doctor. I had a negative experience with a very cold ultrasound tech and I will never forget it. It can make such a difference when you feel someone is being genuine and sympathetic. I cannot wait to celebrate with you when you get your bfp.
