I haven't talked about infertility on here lately because it's depressing and well, who wants to read a depressing blog. In fact some of my newest followers may not even know that we are dealing with infertility.
So here's a little background info (very condensed version):
~Hubs and I started trying to have a baby in April 2008.
~changed dr.'s in July and she said I had endometrosis, HSG confirmed it
~ laproscopy in August to remove it, was not completely successful. Stage 4 endo
~ started Femera and bi-monthly ultrasounds in September
~ in April of 2009 we were referred to a fertility specialist
~ was quickly told that IVF was our only option
~ decided to not see the RE because we were not comfortable there
This is pretty much were we stopped in September of 2009. We haven't been doing any monitoring or anything extra. Last week I had my yearly woman's exam (lovely) and she said that she wanted to refer me to one of 2 dr's in the world that specialize in removing endometrosis. One of the dr.'s is in Omaha and the other is at Duke. Um, okay Duke is waaaaaaayyyyy closer. So at 2pm today I have my first appt. with this new dr. I took the day off work and momma and I are just going to make a day of it. The dr. is only 2 1/2 hours from where I live but we plan on getting some lunch and doing a little browsing. (We have to pick up some Duke National Championship t-shirts since my family is big Duke fans). Today's appt. is just a consultation and I have a 100 questions that I am hoping he will answer. I promise to update soon.
