I went to my RE yesterday to talk about our next step after having surgery 7 weeks ago to remove the large fibroid in my uterus that most likely caused our m/c last year. He is on board with our desire to try for a natural BFP with help from 100mg of clomid and progesterone supplements, we will go 3 cycles with this and if not successful we will come back for IUI's and possible injectibles. I love this RE, he is awesome and doesn't pressure us to do IVF, we only had to tell him once that we were not going to go that route (mainly due to the cost, we have zero insurance coverage for infertility), it is so nice to have him respect that and not push for it even though that is mainly what they do. I am so thankful for going to an RE and I highly recommend any of you that haven't to do so, we wasted almost 8 months with my OB, prescribing me clomid for 4 of those months, never realizing that I had a huge fibroid taking up over half the inside of my uterus and only finding it after my RE scheduled a routine saline u/s to check my lining. We are very hopeful now having that gone! =) So now we wait for AF to show, I haven't had one for 2 months due to the Lupron they gave me to shrink the fibroid before the surgery, that stuff is EVIL, not only did it give me hot flashes from hell but it also contributed to a 14 lb weight gain in 2 months! I feel like a total failure for letting that happen to me. =(

He didn't offer anything to bring AF on, I didn't think to ask, but he does think it is on her way since my hotflashes stopped so suddenly, he believes my estrogen has started in and O will occur soon, so I will be patient and hope that is the case! Thanks so much, I do hope you are right!! =)
