Appointment Update!

I had my appointment yesterday with the OB/GYN who specializes in IF. She was recommended to me by a fellow nestie and she was fabulous!! I really feel that she will be proactive in getting whatever is hindering us from getting pregnant figured out. I had my thyroid and prolactin levels check, (eek! blood test!!!) and she ordered a sperm analysis for Rob. If all of those check out we're on to an X-ray of my tubes and ovaries to make sure everything is looking a-ok, and after that there is the laprascopy to make sure I don't have endometriosis. Somewhere in there she might be prescribing me Clomid to make me ovulate stronger. So we've officially got a game plan!

One thing she said was "Just know that you WILL get pregnant." It made a world of difference. She also said, "Make sure that you don't just have sex when you O. It is important that you still have a healthy sex life." So I'm pretty sure Rob will like her too!

Lindsay, the most supportive best friend on the planet, came with my to my appointment and sat in the waiting room for the entire two hours I was there. I have a deathly fear of hospitals so it was so great to have her there! Amazing right? I'm pretty sure everyone in there thought we were a lesbian couple because when I came out she pretty much jumped out of her seat and said"How did it go?!!" Ha! We would be a darn attractive couple of lesbians if I do say so myself.

So here we go. I really feel like we're moving forward instead of standing still. Rob's SA is next Monday, apparently he needs to...er... do his business and get the sample to the lab in downtown Portland within the hour. Talk about pressure!

I feel really good about this. Thanks for all your support!
