I'm back after a few days to mellow out. I had my appointment with the RE this past Wednesday, which is actually the good part of this story. I decided to take a HPT prior to my appointment since I was 11 DPO. For the first time ever it wasn't stark white! I've always said a line is a line, and this was a crappy cheapie test, but it had a faint line. I sent a picture to DH and he agreed that there was a line. Now keep in mind I had my appointment that day so I really couldn't wait a few days and try a digital like I would have liked to. So I called my doctor who told me that we'd do blood work and see before I bothered going to the consult appointment with the RE. Well, you can see where this story is going...the b/w came back negative and I ended up going to my appointment anyway. I am just so frustrated after this whole incident and DH was all excited about finding out we were pg before Father's Day...only to find out no that we weren't. My emotions have been on overdrive and I'm just not even sure what to think right now. I'm still taking my progesterone, not sure why. I'll take it until 14 DPO and then stop as I usually do.
I guess on to the good news. The RE appointment went well. She seemed very reasonable with the plan of what to do next. I told her I didn't know if I was ready for IUI yet and of course that's what they recommend since it's the best chance they can give you first off. She also mentioned monitoring my cycles and a trigger shot which is what I opted for. We're also switching me to Femara to see if it gives me better results. I saw a PA that worked in that office and she was really nice. There's no guarentee that I'll have the same doctor every time I go, but hopefully I like the other physicians as well. I'm glad that we were on the same page and I'm moving forward. She really wanted me to talk to DH and consider IUI. I am giving it some thought but think we'll try maybe a few cycles with the US monitoring and the trigger shot, then maybe try IUI. My cycle is finally better with the progesterone, so I'm really hoping that I don't need to do more. It's still going to cost me every month since I have no insurance coverage. Hopefully it will give us some time though to save up for the IUI's if we need them. I would only have enought saved for one IUI cycle right now, not two. They gave me a price list of everything right off the bat which is a little intimidating, but at least I know ahead of time. If you don't have coverage you pay upfront before the service
I just really hope that this is going to be what I need to get my BFP. After seeing that faint line I'm just a little depressed about everything. I'm just trying to stay positive and take things one at a time.
