....and go!

I went to the fertility Dr this am.. man do I have a lot to share!

When I arrived they took back to a room & informed me that I needed a Sonogram done. I started to panic because today was my post HSG results appointment. After questioning the Dr for about 3 min - the ultrasound started. After he finished he asked me to get dressed and he'd come get me so we could talk in his office. Sheer panic rose.

I waited for about 10 minutes for him to come get me and we into his office. He showed me the results and picture from the HSG test. Then he said that he wanted Mr P to see a urologist & asked when my last birth control pill was taken. I informed him that I took one this morning & that I would make sure Mr P followed up with this appointment; so sure we were going to expand our birth control pills & wait. As I took a deep sigh of frustration he grabbed a sheet of paper and started scribbling writing down instructions, I was very confused.

The next thing I know he is talking to me about Clomid & the trigger shot! He ordered me to stop taking the birth control pills and that I will be starting the Clomid on Sunday! Holy Cow! So from Sun - Thurs I'll be taking the clomid; on Mr P's birthday I take my trigger shot & on the 1st of Oct we have a Sonogram. The Sonogram allows them to see how many follicles (eggs) are ready for 'baby batter' (fertilization) and then they can schedule the next step.

At that moment pure shock ran through me; a mix of pure joy and fear. He then informed me that instead of doing this the natural way we are being scheduled for a IUI - Artificial Insemination. The IUI will help guarantee a pregnancy without leaving it to chance. The goal is to obtain a fast pregnancy & leaving it up to us with scheduled dates didn't fit. I was really taken aback by the IUI because it hadn't been discussed prior but I understand why....

So Sunday (the 22nd) starts my baby journey! I'll be so nutty & cray cray by the first that I'll more or less lose a ton of friends. LOL I am SUPER excited & I'm so ready for this to begin!!!  Hope you all follow me through his journey.

    1. Thank you! I am going to work really hard on staying super positive through all of this. 100mg of clomid, the Gonal F and the IUI are going to be my super potion! Praying we can make this happen in one round. Fingers crossed!!!!!!!

  2. That's so exciting; congrats! Did you ask for a follow-up appointment after your HSG, or were you just scheduled one? The clinic didn't offer me one (results over the phone). I also was told I had to wait until December to start the fertility meds/IUI process. I'm totally jealous of how quickly your journey is starting!

    1. They scheduled all my appointments after the HSG. I just had to go & they took care of the rest of it. I'm shocked on how fast all of this has gone too. I really was expecting a bunch of delays but it's been so smooth. You'll have to let me know when you start your process... I"ll be glad to offer any support or advice I can. But of Luck to you! <3, Mrs. P
