RE appt update (m)
Tue, 04-01-2003 - 7:21pm
My appt went pretty well. I am a little confussed.... I really don't know a whole lot yet but I feel hopeful!

The doc initially said since I am young (not that young!) and I had no problems getting pg with the ep, that he wants me to try on my own for 6 months and come back if I am not pg!!!! YIKES!!! I guess he could tell by the look on my face that I was not happy with that response!

He then decided he first wants to find out if I am Oing or not. I know I am not but I can understand he wants to see for himself. (I don't really think he understands that I am on Clomid now already either.)

Anyway, he scheduled an u/s for next Wed (cd14) to check for follicles and to see which side they are on!!!! He said based on the u/s then he would come up with a plan for me. Yeah! That is exactly what I want...a plan to get me pg. Right now I feel like I am just dabbling in this and that.

I think I will know more next Wed and I sure hope I feel more at ease about all of this once I know more. I just need to be forceful and ask for a plan. Waiting 6 months is not part of my plan ;)

Thanks for your support and for asking about me. That really means a lot to me.

I wish you all the best of baby luck! I hope we all get BFP soon!

That sounds great Jeanne - it sounds like your RE wants to do the least invasive plan and I think thats great! At least this cycle you will get some answers and know what your chances for getting pg are. Sounds great to me! I love having a plan too - it makes you feel like you have some control over all of this!

Good luck - I am sending you big follicle vibes!!!!


P.S. Just my two cents but next time make sure he knows you are on clomid. I know how these doctors can be - sometimes you have to repeat yourself a million times!

Also - just being nosey - how old are you? My ob/gyn thinks I am young and my RE thinks I am old - LOL - I am 31.

Jeane - Sounds like a good appt. I wish I had an U/S at home to check up on things - they are great. I am sure you will know more once you take a peek inside your body next week. Good luck with your appt. (Your ob will also U/S you?)

Thank you for all of your kind words. I really feel a lot better about all of this. I was a bit overwhelmed when I came home from the dr appt and wrote my response. They always give somuch info that it is a lot for me to take in. I think this dr will come up with a plan though which I want.

I am so so hoping for big follicles on my right side for next week! I just want to O...I know pg will come soon enough but I need to O to do that!

I am 29 by the way! My OB and RE think that is young but I don't!!!!! I will be 30 in a couple of months and I am not even pg. I hope I am pg by the end of the year. That would be the best Xmas gift ever!

Thanks again

Thank you Kristina for all of your well wishes! I really appreciate the support.

My RE will do the u/s but I got the Clomid from my OB. My OB does not monior on Clomid until the dose is up to 150. Right now I am at 100 (cc2). The RE requested the u/s to see what my cycle is doing. I think he thinks it is my natural cycle though. Ohh well, I can tell him again when I go in that I am on Clomid.

If the RE will agree to treat me after he sees my machinery on the u/s, I would love to stay with him. If the RE wants me to wait 6 months to be treated then I am going back to the OB for 150 of Clomid and monitoring.

It is really confusing right now! I hope to get this all figured out next week!

Jeanne, glad you had a pretty good apt...sounds like your dr is really looking out for you...that always helps! However, I also think it's important that you tell him that you are on clomid but at least he'll be checking follicles & you can tell him then.

So, GL with your apt next Wed....I hope everything goes great....hey, maybe you won't have to wait 6 may happen earlier!!

All the best,
