Not what I wanted to hear, but not as bad as I thought.

My husband and I went to go see my OB/GYN today, and after reviewing all of my information, she informed that she believes that it is in my best interest to see a fertility specialist. She said it was very promising that I was even able to get pregnant in the first place, but I am going to need some help to get to the end result I want...a healthy, full term pregnancy. I was referred to an RE through the Central New York Fertility Center based out of Syracuse. He is supposed to be one of the State's leading fertility doctors so I am very lucky that I got in to see him. My OB/GYN explained to me that several options will be given to me including Clomid/Progesterone therapy, hormone therapy with IUI, and hormone therapy with IVF. Tomorrow I have to go get a series of 5 blood panels done and an ultrasound in a couple of weeks in preparation for the appointment which is on Feb. 18th. I am a bit discouraged that it is such a long wait, but from what I have heard, I am actually getting in pretty quickly. I am not looking forward to getting poked and prodded, but it will all be worth it in the end. Hoping for lots of magical baby dust!!

  1. Praying for baby dust!! And from what I've heard also, 4 weeks really isn't too long to wait to get into such a great doctor. I'm sure you'll be able to find ways to keep yourself busy til then ;)
