One Last Try?!

I haven't posted, commented or been around much but I do still check in now and again. I love seeing where everyone is at in this quest for baby.
Well, we had our consultation with the local clinic and it went pretty well. It is weird talking to another doctor and going to another clinic. Everything just seems so small compared to CCRM. We met with the Dr. on Monday and we talked 3 hours, no joke! He took his time with us which is way different than going to CO. Again, if you are reading this. We loved CCRM, however, the traveling and money just seems like to much to handle with a toddler. We don't have any family here to help us so it's hard scheduling all that time away from Logan.

Dr. N, told us we were very lucky to get pregnant and said we should have had better results. Agreed, but it's also about timing. He likes to push the limits with stimming, that is one area I think CCRM did not do well for me. I stimmed really low and he agreed. So here is the plan, we are going to look at my ovaries on CD3 & get the sperm checked. Then if all is "OK" we are going to probably move forward with 2 stims. Basically as you all know, it's a numbers game and because we have so many things against us now, age, sperm, chromosomes...we need more eggs.

Two stims is the LAST thing we want to do BUT, if it means a better chance at having a baby, it's the right thing to do. We hope to get at least 24 eggs altogether and go from there. This process will take a while so basically the next 6 months we will be dealing with this IF stuff off & on.

I am glad I took notes on this little blog, it was really helpful in communicating with the doctor about everything.

Hope all is well with everyone...here we go again!

  1. Exciting, and exhausting all at the same time! We are so excited to try again, but every time I think about all that goes into it I feel exhausted! It sounds like a great plan and I hope everything goes smoothly for you!

  2. Phew, I can't imagine how overwhelming it would be to go through this all again with a toddler. I hope you have great results with this new clinic!
