We saw the fertility doctor yesterday and it didn't go very well. He opened our file, said "I recommend you do IVF with ICSI, any questions?" and then blew off all our questions. DP was furious when we left, and he's not the type to get angry, ever.
I am feeling very discouraged.
Yea, I would switch too. Like others said. You (or your insurance) is paying a lot of money for them. The least they could do is consider all the options, or tell you what options are and are not, and why some won't work for you.
I have all the baby stuff from DS, since I foolishly expected to have a baby when we started ttc after he was born. It is all in the loft, which is tiny and our only place for storage. It is literally packed with stuff. DH was up there putting photo albums away last weekend and trying to fin d xmas lights, and he was so mad about how full it is (like is is all my fault). I still hold out hope for having another baby, so I don't want to get rid of it all and just have to buy more stuff. But, it is taking up a lot of space in our little home (1200 square feet).
So, yea, like MBA, I could outfit a baby if one was dropped off my house... I could also feed them breastmilk, since I still have some stored in the freezer (we are using it in baths now), it is over a year old. And I may even be able to muster out some breast milk, since I just weaned DS 3 months ago. I wonder how long it takes to completely dry up after stopping. We were only nursing once or twice a day, so it is not like I could feel full breasts anyway.
May I rant for a moment, please?
It is CD-frickin'-26, and I still have not ovulated. Yep, 26. That's 2 days short of the "average" full cycle and still no egg! It's downright depressing. I had a + OPK 3 days ago and no temp jump yet. That can't be normal, right? My OPK pattern is usually 1 or 2 days of + with a temp shift 2 days after the last +. Is it even possible to O 3 days after a +? I thought I felt some ovary twinges (for like the 519th time this cycle) this morning, and my cervix is harder now.
I just don't know. I'm confused and frustrated and sad. And I think my body hates me.
Thanks for listening.
Hmm, that doesn't make sense to me. A + OPK means you are about to O, right? I don't really understand. Sorry. It sounds frustrating.
The only thing I have for a baby is a little hat that DH and I got in Amsterdam, It was from this funky little shop where the woman knitted these beautiful hats, blankets and toys. It symbolized our decision to TTC at the time and I still have it tucked away, hidden. I would never give it away, even if we never have a baby.
I had more Xrays yesterday morning. I had to go to the ER at 4 am after being up all night with breathing problems due to a nasty case of bronchitis. I had tons of Xrays after the car accident, and the other day I was at the dentist and they had to Xray my mouth. Can that hurt me?
Well, they gave me a pregnancy test, and it came back BFN, but I wouldn't get a BFP anyways at this oint. I just feel like I am abusing my body with so much radiation
I have read that too much radiation can hurt you, but also that they use so much less radiation nowadays, where as they used to use a huge amount just to accomplish the same thing. I am sure it is all critical, right... If you can't avoid it, I really wouldn't worry to much about it.
Janger, Sorry about the BFN
I am 6 dpo. Nothing but boring. My last class is today. YAY (except for all the papers and tests to grade.. boo).
