First RE appt tomorrow!
12
Mon, 01-25-2010 - 5:23pm

I have my first RE appointment tomorrow and have been looking forward to it all month...until today. And now for some crazy reason, I am super nervous about it! I can't wait to get a plan in place (probable IUIs) but I guess there's part of me that feels like we will just get another bad diagnosis on top of what we are already dealing with. Does that make sense?


Arg...count to ten, I just need to calm down.


Any tips for my visit would be much appreciated!

Me 33, DH 36. TTC since November 2007. Possible miscarriage in January of 2008 (too early for BFP, but all symptoms point to miscarriage). Normal SA in Feb 2009. HSG showed large (50% of uterus) fundal fibroid in Feb 2009. Hysteroscopically removed in March 2009. Tried to concieve naturally until August. Repeat HSG was normal. Currently on 4th month of Clomid...never had a BFP. Will begin IUI in January.

Good luck today Jamie! Nothing to be nervous about, it will be a good step in the right direction. Just take notes and try and remember all the questions you want to have answered.

Thanks everyone!


It went really well. We really liked him. He did the ultrasound himself and thankfully my fibroid tumor is not back (which I was secretly scared of) and basically says that we now have "unexplained infertility". We start IUIs next month!!! Will do 50mg of Clomid, then ultrasound and then IUI. He seemed very knowledgeable and was happy that we had done our research.


I sure hope this works since I have no idea how we will afford IVF!

Heather, It's great that you like your RE. Thats one relationship that is truely dependent on trust. Do you feel better that you have a plan? That always makes me relax, knowing where I'm going next. And don't you start worrying your little heart over IVF costs. You have quite a few options before you get there. GL on your upcoming Clomid cycle...Fx'd for a BFP.
