Finally we saw the fertility doc. It is a very slow process here. We still have more tests to do and each test has to be booked through a lab. We are still waiting to have Codie's test done; the lab is having technical difficulties right now and wont be up and running for that test for another few weeks. GRRR
I was afraid the specialist wouldn't see us because of that, the secretary was going to cancel our app but the specialist was nice enough to tell her he would go ahead with all my tests too while we were waiting. I will be having an HSG test where they pump dye into your uterus to see if you have blockages in your tubes and they will also check for abnormalities, cysts, etc. That will be done 7 to 10 days after my period starts. Who knows when that will be as I ovulated very early this month and didn't realize it. GRRR My cycles are never the same and I never ovulate when I'm supposed to. The only way I know is because my temp went up and even that I missed taking a few mornings because I was running late to get out the door. Apparently somewhere in that time is when it rose and I had ovulated. GRRR OK I am off topic and ranting about my cycles.
So the doc said my progesterone levels are rising and it looks like I am ovulating. The next step is the HSG and after that if he cant find anything wrong with those results or Codie's results when he finally gets them then he will put me on an ovulation stimulator to get my cycles more regular and predictable.
The weird thing that happened while we were in there is that my GP listed me as having one child. He wasn't informed that Jack had passed away. He kept talking as if Jack was alive by saying things like, "I certainly understand that you want to get on this. You certainly don't want to wait another five years for your child to have a sibling.." Codie and I were stunned yet we didn't say anything. We just couldn't go there. We will tell him next appointment as he does need to know in case I do get pregnant. We always wish when it comes to having to tell people like Docs, the accountant etc that we had one extra person around that would tell them the whole story so we didn't have too.
Although I really liked the specialist I still came out of the appointment both sad and frustrated. Its taking a long time to get this ball rolling. I wish he would prescribe Clomid for my next cycle now while we were doing all the other tests too . Why delay when we can kill all the birds with one stone . Once all the tests are done and we finally get in to see him again and he finally prescribes it to me it will be Jan or maybe even Feb by then. GRRR
Codie could see how aggravated I was and on the way home he tried to perk me up by talking about names for our next child. To top off the day a friend in my age range that has a bunch of kids is unexpectedly- unplanned- pregnant again. She is not happy about it either. GRRRR to all of it. I might as well call this post GRRRR LOL
I miss you so much my piglet, Jack and Mummy forever
