First RE appointment

Well the good news is that this doc found my other ovary! Many have tried and many have failed, but he found that little sucker hiding behind the uterus and down from where it should be and it looks normal YEAH! That is good news. However, it is so far off the beaten path that we are not sure if its near enough a tube to be any good, and could raise the issue of eptopic pregnancy a whole lot more. So I have to wait for my next cycle to start, call them, have blood test three days later and then have an HSG on day 6-7. So there is hope for this old girl. Caveat, the DH is now not sure he wants to try, he likes being childless and is not sure now that we have had one misscarriage that he really wants a kid. So today have been one big up and down. I could use some hugs, the tears are starting to get painful!

Thanks for listening

Good for you that you met with the Doc! Here's hoping that next month, you have even better news!

Sophia: Hoping the HSG test goes well. I always find it feels good to be doing the testing...it helps rule out certain problems and identifies others that you can look for solutions for.

It's interesting for both dh & myself, we've both had times where we've said "I'm done...being childless must be the plan for us." This is typically out of frustration and when we sit back and talk about it, we continue to try. I think if I ever felt that way for a solid month, I would know it was time to quit. Hoping you & dh can discuss this...do you have a Resolve chapter near you? I recently signed up for a support group type thing (they call them SOS groups). We haven't gone to the first session, but we're going to give it a try.

Keep us posted on how things go...take good care.

Hi Sophia,

I am glad to hear they found that ovary!!! DH must understand that his thoughts on this matter at this point in life can't be changed later & that you have to go for it now. We will be praying for your success.

++++++++++++Prayers &++++++++++vibes coming to you!!!!++++++++++++++++

Hey Margie!

Thanks for your reply! I have not heard of resolve groups? I will have to look to see if we have anything around here. The DH and I have been spending some bonding time. My m/c is only about a week in our past, and it caused me a lot of pain (and you all know what that is like) and I think his underlying thought is he does not want to watch me go through it again. I just have to convince him I am going to survive this, and be the happy go lucky chick I was before that little baby showed up. I am glad to know other DH's have second thoughts from time to time. I can only imagine how much more difficult it must be as the expenses rise. We are still early on in that phase.

I hope you have a spectacular week, you are a very very kind soul!

I am so glad I found all of you here, you just "get it" without having to use alot of words. I am not sure if I mentioned it before but my DH is only 31! So sometimes I do not think he understands that just because we a couple and I may look younger than my years, every single cell (and egg) in my body is 40 years old!!

He will come around, he loves me, and you know what, he loved our little baby too.

I appreciate your prayers and baby dust and hugs.... Now I need a little seductress vibe from all of you to help trip the DH back to the light!!
