Indie, I'm sorry about this last cycle and your disappointment. :( Were you charting this cycle? If so, would you share your chart? I think a new acupuncture and herbal regimen for the next four months is a terrific idea! That's exactly what I did (switched acupuncturists and took a break until we were going to take the leap to IVF). I would also agree to ditch the DHEA for awhile. Particularly when you do herbs, my acupuncturist things it's smart to only do what's absolutely necessary, because she believes they compete with each other and then lessen the effects of the herbs (or any of the supplements for that matter). I was down to very little while taking herbs. Hang in there, girl.
TF, so happy you had a great time in St. Croix! Do tell more about the chemical pregnancy??? I'm so sorry about your cancelled cycle -- I can only imagine your disappointment right now. I think I'd take a break too, rather than two months of BCPs.
SKJ, how's your back feeling? My OB appt with ok . . . I think I might have caught him on a weird day perhaps . . . I was seen 45 minutes late, and then he left me in the room for another 20 minutes before doing my U/S, and then was really casual about the whole thing. I liked him, but I didn't feel like it was very personal at all, and for all that waiting, I didn't have any time to ask questions. I dunno. His wife (who does front office) and his nurse were super nice. Hard to say what the right thing to do is . . . I think I'm going to check out the only other OB in my area that promotes unmedicated birthing, and then make a decision. He was also really strange when I asked him about doing the new blood test to look for chromosomal abnormalities rather than amnio or CVS. He knew almost nothing about it, and made me feel a little bit weird for asking? Sometimes that happens when docs think that as an NP I just think I know everything and am being pushy or something, but DOs are usually much cooler. Anyway, I'm just rambling now . . .
I'm glad you are feeling a smidge better about things, and no matter what I am just hoping that you get a quick closure to this and can move forward. You'll get the other beta results tomorrow, right?
AFM, pretty much gave my OB update in my post above to SKJ, but in really good news, it was so nice to have an U/S again, and things are measuring right on schedule (I'm 7w1d today). We even heard the heartbeat for a few seconds! I'll post a pic of the sono when DH scans it. Hope you all have a good week! Can't believe it's here again.
