Today I met with my doctor for a plan update.

Andi it IS so frustrating. I am in the midst of testing everything with my RE and someone asked me last night if I would prefer to have them find something wrong. There's a tiny part of me that would prefer that - at least then I get a reason for the m/cs! It's really hard when the doctors tell you "you're perfect, DH is perfect, no reason why you can't get PG and carry a baby to term!"

I like the plan, I think it's a good one. Try to focus on the positive - you guys are healthy with good test results and hopefully this plan with the RE will result in a sticky, healthy BFP this summer.

Andi, if anyone on earth knows how you feel it's me. But for the record, one follicle on Clomid is very normal. Clomid isn't known for multiple follicle production. In fact, some dr's find it pretty much useless to use on a woman who is ovulating on her own. You really need injectables most of the time to get more than one follicle going. Also, I am surprised they have you using OPK's. Bravelle can mess with OPK results as it has a little bit of LH in it. Some women get a continuous + OPK on Bravelle and some never get one at all. But, your CD 11 u/s should cover your bases. I just didn't want you to be alarmed if it never goes + or is + all the time!

Andi, I'm so glad you have a plan! It sounds like a good one! I am right there with you wondering why? We've had most everything come out "normal" and progesterone is the only thing that is low. I shouldn't have one ounce of trouble getting pg, but here we sit at almost 3.5 years of TTC with no baby in our arms. *sigh* I sometimes wish we had the money to go for IUI. Or, even to just be a little more aggressive with our treatments. But, we don't have the money, so here we sit continuing to try on our own.

I really hope that after this cycle ends (may it be a nice quick one!) you can move on to your IUI cycle and I hope it is incredibly successful!

I hope your new plan results in a sticky BFP!
