Does anyone have any suggestions what I should ask or be requesting that he do? any tests?

I am on 100mg of Clomid this month so I know I should request an u/s...anything else?

I am excited and nervous at the same time!

Thanks!!!!

First, I'd like to wish you the best of luck with your apt...I hope it goes well!

Second...hmm questions to ask?!?!? I haven't been to an RE but I do have a specialist...some of the questions I asked after my ep were:

1. Will I have an early u/s (if pg) to see if fetus is in the uterus? If so, when?

2. Will you follow my HCG levels every 2 days once I find out I am pg?

3. Do you recommend fertility monitors? If so, which ones?

4. Is there anything I can do to prevent an ep from happening again? (there isn't but maybe you'd like to hear what your RE has to say about this)

5. What are the chances of this happening to me again?

6. Are there any blood tests that I should take? eg. to detect clotting disorders etc?!?

Some other questions I would ask if I were you:

6. If I don't conceive, how many more doses/months of clomid will I have to take before we move on to the next step?

7. What is the next step, if worse comes to worse?

That's all I can think of, but I'm sure other women will have more questions to add to this list.

Keep us posted on how it goes and once again...GL,
