Welcome to my TTC journal!! A quick bio about me - DH and I have been trying to conceive since April 2005. That's "actively" TTC, but we've been having unprotected sex since January 2005. So almost two years. We saw an OB for a fertility workup, and were put on Clomid for three cycles back in April. Well, that failed, which was a big disappointment because supposedly, our whole problem was that I wasn't ovulating regularly. DH had an SA and everything came back "almost" normal - he is right there on the borderline, but nothing to cause concern. So the next thing is an HSG, and then a visit to an RE. So far we have always said that we will draw the line at an IUI, since we only wanted to go as far as Clomid. But now that we're here, I have trouble just saying no to the IUI. So we're going to go in and talk to the RE and see what he/she thinks the problem is. Hopefully we won't need the IUI, but if we do, I think we will give it an honest shot. I am most nervous about the HSG, because I have been told that hurts a LOT! *Gulp* So tomorrow I call the doc for an HSG referral, and then wait on my period! Right now I am about 8 days or so past ovulation, and DH and I DTD at a good time, so maybe I'll turn up pregnant and all this will be a moot point! But experience teaches me otherwise. Well... I'm having lunch with a girlfriend in about 15 minutes so I better leave! Ta!
I had lunch with my friend yesterday, and almost told her about TTC. Right now we are keeping it under wraps. See, we had told everyone when we first started TTC and it got really overwhelming when people kept asking us why we weren't pregnant yet. So we took a break (or so we told everyone), and we've decided to not say anything about the RE and possible fertility treatments until we actually get pregnant, if we ever do. That way there isn't all that extra pressure. I'm also not going to post on the TTC boards because I don't want it to become this all-consuming thing in my life like it was when we first started TTC. I want to take it easy and have hope, but that's it. No obsession!
I called my OB today and left a message for her to call me back about the HSG. Hopefully she calls me back tomorrow. Gotta love military hospitals - especially ours. It's like they never can keep up with all the work they have. Why they don't hire more doctors is beyond me.
Well, I better drink some spicy V8. I can definitely feel AF coming, everything is making me sick, and I had cramps today. I am ready for this next cycle!
