TLC has a New Show Online about Women Trying To Conceive.  The concept:

Each participant in the series received several First Response testing kits and a digital video camera to document their lives and progress over the next seven months. The women send the footage to TLC producers, who edit the videos and post them online within a few days. Each participant also will contribute to a blog on the show’s Web site. First Response guided TLC in selecting the participants, and fertility specialist Peter Ahlering, a spokesperson for First Response, appears in informational videos on the site.

Another month and I’m out of Ovulation Tests.  If I knew in my 20’s that it was gonna be this way I would have tried back then to get pregnant.  I wanted to have 2 children but at this rate I think it’ll be just 1, if that even happens.  I’ll just try to keep  my chin up and continue trying.  So how is it going with you???

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?
