So there is some good news and some bad. The doc and nurse were great. She said I can't start anything this cycle because she wanted to do more testing. I asked my OB to test me for all the clotting disorders but he never tested all of them. So I had to get that done, plus prolactin cause my last one as high and needed another tsh test cause my level was still not what she'd like it to be. all these things I asked my OB to do and he said no my results were fine. Plus I had to Go to my regular lab cause the insurance did not yet authorize testing done at the clinic and I need another auto to start treatment and the doc said that could take 4 weeks. So basically my OB and insurance are screwing me again. As long as My b/w comes back ok, she wants me to start clomid and ovidrel with timed intercourse and progesterone for one cycle before moving go iui. I went to my lab today. The doc and nurse said it sd be 3 tubes total, well they took 11, crazy vampires. I'm sick of waiting and just want to move on. A least I like the doc and kinda have a plan. So now I wait for AF and then 2 cycles from now we can start this plan.

Thanks so much ladies. I found out that my TSH level actually went up from 2.7 to 4.6, so now the RE increased my meds. I have no idea why it's doing that. I called the RE and they are super responsive, that is a good sign since my OB was an idiot.

I know you wish to get things done now, but at least you have a plan! You're getting closer to that BFP!

Jen,

Boo to more waiting, but hopefully things happen super quick. So glad you like the doc and nurse; that makes things nicer I think. Yay for a plan!

Glad that your appt went well Jen! I don't know if I could have done 11 vials - wow! I passed out when they took 3! Glad that there is a plan even though you can't start now like you wanted, I guess better to have all the facts before jumping in right? Hoping you get your Clomid soon and you see a BFP even sooner!

Hugs~

I'm so happy that things are moving forward for you Jen! Yep, when I had all my b/w done it was about 11 vials. I hope it gives you some answers!!

Jen, well I know ideally you would have liked to jump on a cycle asap but I had a feeling they would want to do more testing. Rarely does an OB do all the testing that an RE would like done. I hope your insurance gets its butt into gear and maybe you won't be sidelined for as long as you think. ((hugs))

Thanks so much to all of you. AF should be here tomorrow, so I won't have auths in time to start anything this cycle. Hopefully the b/w is ok and we can start next time. I'm hoping!!!

I'm glad that you got some good information and a plan from the RE. I hope that the RE can get insurance to authorize more visits for you while you wait for the test results.

Yuck on the 11 vials of blood. I've so BTDT! LOL! I always walk out of the lab and find some old ladies sitting in the waiting room. They ask everyone walking out if they were nice in there or if they were vampires. Of course, I've had to tell them on occasion to be careful of those bloodthirsty phlebotomists. LOL!

Now, why do you need to wait two cycles? Is it because AF and your next cycle will come before they can get the approval for more RE visits? (((HUGS))) I know that waiting is SO hard, but I am so sure that you are going to have great success and your patience will be rewarded!
