A few months ago I spoke to my GYN about TTC  and basically she told me a bunch of things and I only grasped a few. I felt rushed, confused and unsatisfied. The other day I went to the library and came across a book that I think others might find satisfying that you can always go back to and refer to.  The book is, What To Expect Before You’re Expecting.  Since I have to return the book in a few days I might just have to buy my own.

Yes, it’s been awhile. So to update, I do not have Polycystic ovaries and all my blood test came back normal. Now I’m taking 50mg of Clomid and taking ovulation test. If the ovulation tests show that I’m not ovulating then the next step is increasing the dosage of Clomid for the next cycle. Well see how this goes and then after three months of this take a sono to make sure I have not developed any cysts.  After this there is a whole lot more she told me that would have to be done. Who would have known it was gonna be a pain in the ass to get pregnant.   Hope you’re having an easier time at this than I am.

I went to the OBGYN today after 2+ years of procrastinating.  She asked a bunch of questions which was great, exam, more questions, possible diagnosis and blood test to confirm. Results possibly on Monday to determine if I have Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome but all roads lead to yes thus far. I guess all I can do now is wait and educate myself on my possible diagnosis.

Good news for all! Soon in Europe men will be able to take fertility testing in the privacy of their own home. YES!!! As for American men, the Food and Drug Administration is currently awaiting approval. YES!!!

I finally went to the GYN today and I almost didn’t go because I DID get my period today.  I did go though. I didn’t see my regular doctor because I would have to wait till sometime in March so I ended with a male doctor. I’m not 100% comfortable with a male doctor but I needed to see someone ASAP. So he did a pelvic exam and has me going in next week to do a pelvic sonogram. I also need an annual but I can’t do both at the same time since my insurance won’t cover it. So the day after my sonogram I have the annual exam appointment with the male doctor but I think I might change the appointment and wait till March to see my regular female doctor. The doctor mentioned I would probably be put on meds to help me ovulate but nothing can be giving to me until the exam. So do I wait until March to see my regular doctor or see the male doctor so I can be put on the medication and get pregnant?

 Trying to Conceive Ticker

Can you believe I still have not gotten my period! I took 3 test today. The first one was positive but I didn’t want to get too happy so I took 2 other test which came back negative. Which one do I believe? I know which one I want to believe but…  I’ll wait one more week and take the test again if no period has appeared. I hate this!  Can they invent an at home blood test to confirm pregnancy, please.

Adoption. It’s something that my husband and I have talked about if it happens that we can not conceive. I did some checking and the adoption process isn’t cheap. I think the government should have some program to help families that want to adopt and change the life of a child.  November is National Adoption month and here is the website for more information ChildWelfare.Gov/adoption

November is National Adoption month, a month set aside to raise awareness about the adoption of children and youth from foster care. This year’s theme,”You don’t have to be perfect to be a perfect parent,” includes a more focused effort that reaches out to the African American community and builds on the Ad Council’s new public service announcement (PSA) campaign of the Children’s Bureau, the Adoption Exchange Association, and AdoptUsKids.
