Nicole- It's absolutely amazing how fast time goes! Not sure what will happen if we aren't successful on our first attempt. DH doesn't really think that we will be able to do anything else, or at least it will take a long time to financially be able to move on to trying again or adopting. Fingers are crossed that it's a one and done kinda thing. We switched RE's and so far I'm really happy about our decision to go to Seattle. Any advice you can think of?

Nicole- I couldn't agree more. I'm so glad we made the change. I think Dr. B would've just kept doing the same thing over and over with no result. I finally had to get assertive with him and ask what his plan for us would be. I told him it wasn't financially feasible for us to keep repeating the same thing and have it not work. Only then did he really say that it would make sense for us to do IVF. I had started hearing from others that they felt he had a money making thing going on. Seemed stuck in the old ways of doing things and his IVF coordinator told us that he didn't put much stock into the labs during the IVF process. Basically, I started to question how responsible it would be for us to continue seeing him, Our new doc, Dr. S I think was a little suprised by the responses we had gotten from Dr. B when she asked if he had mentioned what he thought our problem TTC was about. Of course she was very discreet and professional, but as another healthcare professional I could tell she wasn't exactly on board with his treatment plan or basically telling us that we were "maybe just super unlucky". KMFC that it's one and done, too! So glad that you've popped in!

Amy- Yeah, it kinda seems like that's what he's in it for. I don't doubt he probably likes seeing his patients get PG although he's not proactive and not aggressive enough. I sure hope that you find a new counselor that you like. It's such a bummer that your old one isn't covered. Anxiety can be a big challenge. Having been down that road before hopefully the tools you learned to help cope with it will help you this time, too. Know we are here to listen! Hugs!
Brie- Thanks! You're almost through it! Keep up that good work
AFM- Start the stim meds this afternoon!

My name is Naomi, and I am moving into my 24th week with my 1st Baby Girl. I am nearly 40, diabetic and super happy. She was conceived naturally, and everything has gone great so far. I've been lucky to have 3 ultrasounds so far. One at 9 weeks, one at 12 weeks for my CVS, and one at 20 weeks. We have one coming up on Dec 2nd to check her heart out. I seem to have caught a head cold, and will try to get as much rest as possible this Thanksgiving week.
