So, I was hoping I would be one of the lucky ones and able to graduate from the TTC board to a prego board on my first cycle, but it doesn't appear to be that way. Right now I'm on CD53 and no end of AF in sight!! I am going to do my 5th HPT tomorrow morning, and if still a BFN, I'll get blood work done by the end of this week. So far, DH and I have interviewed 2 out of 3 OB/GYNs, and the first two have had different opinions on what to do with me. Dr. A was OK, but didn't have a suggestion as to what to do to help AF show up, but did say she would start me on Clomid 3-6 cycles if no luck. Dr. B was OK, and gave me a prescription for Provera to take on CD56 if no AF and BFNs, and then Clomid to help jump start Oing. I don't meet with Dr. C until August 27th (she's on maternity leave - is that a good sign???). Luckily she is someone I have met with in the past for sickness related problems, but never as an GYN; she happens to also be my momm's GYN. I'm hoping everything with her Clicks, and Dr. A, who is in the same office, will be our backup dr. Unfortunately, I need a dr. with good experience with Crohn's and ileostomy patients, cuz that's me.
The other set back to everything is that all my tubes could be jumbled up. After my surgery close to 3 years ago, they said it was a chance. If so, it's a slight procedure to get it corrected.
Right now, the only people who know we're TTC are my friends Valerie (by accident at a party, and her friend Michelle - also at the same party) and my friend Elisa, who is the only Mom I know! My friend Jocie knows, but DH doesn't know I told her, although he keeps asking if I've told her yet - he knows me soooo well!!! We're not going to tell our folks yet b/c they're already badgering us now, just imagine if they knew - YIKES!!!
Anyway, this is my first journal entry, but hopefully not too many more. I have to leave (I'm at work right now), and my folks are waiting for me to head out for dinner.
TTFN - will right more later. Light a candle to help show AF the way...
