First, let me introduce myself. My name is Jina and my Hubby and I have been trying to have a baby for about 2 years. We are able to get pregnant on our own but unfortunately they don't stick. I've had 3 miscarriages and a CP in the last year and a half. I started seeing my RE a few month ago and after a whole battery of tests the only thing that came up was that I have a single copy of MTHFR (blood clotting disorder). Though, because my homocysteine levels were low instead of high, the Hematologist doesn't believe this is the cause of my losses ( I say BS!). I'm on baby aspirin, 5.25mg folic acid, 1000 mcg of B12 and 50mg of B6 as a precaution.
Even though I O on my own, my RE thought that I would benefit from Clomid and Femara since I have really long cycles. She also wanted to give me "better" eggs to work with. Well, we tried one cycle with Clomid and it was a bust. We tried again with Femara and it was a bust as well. Instead of trying again with meds or moving on to IUI, we have decided to pursue IVF with PGD.
Okay, now for my questions. What can I expect from my first appointment?
I've already had a lot of tests done like, an HSG (normal), AMH (6.3), Thyroid (5), Genetic tests on both Hubby and I (all fine), Karyotyping on Hubby and I (normal)....and a whole bunch of other tests as well. Hubby hasn't had a SA done yet but I'm sure he'll get one in 2 weeks. Should we expect more tests?
How soon can I expect to get the ball rolling after the initial consult? Is it weeks or months? I know my RE will go over everything with us but I'm pretty anxious about this whole process.
Also, are there any questions I should ask my RE? Am I missing anything important?
Thanks in advance for any information or insight you can give me. I hope to get to know you ladies and hopefully we can all support each other on this journey.
