We had an initial consult with the RE and he is not going to put me on clomid due to my uterus shape. He doesn't want me to have twins because it can lead to miscarriage or pre term labor. He did give me a script for Femara which we will be starting on my next cycle, but still a bit disappointed because of the information. If he doesn't want me to have twins, that means there will be no IUI the only other infertility treatment we would be able to afford.

My husband and I discussed our next steps after the appointment and we have come to the decision that we will not continue on with treatment after the Femara. We are in the process of becoming foster parents with adoption being a good possibility. I really really hope that the Femara does the trick and we get pregnant but I am going to leave it in God's hands.

It is hard to come to this decision since I so desperately want an infant again, I want it so much and I think that it is a really good possibility that I wont have one again. There is always hope, my SIL went 8 years before she had her twins thinking that she was never going to have a baby. They did everything but IVF (too expensive) several times throughout that time and the twins were a welcome suprise completely without any "assistance".

~deep breath~ Onward and upward!

I am sorry you are at this crossroad. Nothing about infertility is fair and easy. I understand that wanting to have an infant again. I have been trying to get pregnant for the last 8.5 years and hope one day I will get the miracle baby. Never give up the hope for something that you want. God always has plans for us even though I sometimes wonder why he chooses us to go through the heartache we do. I wish you all the best and hope the Ferama will work for you.

Sending lots of good luck wishes that Femara will do the trick to bring you another baby. Best wishes on becoming foster parents as well!
