Back in the swing of things...

Whew! That sickness really wiped me out, but I'm feeling back to my old self once again, thank goodness! Let's do an update, shall we? Good...I thought so, too...

Yesterday, I had to drag my butt out of bed at the crack of dawn to head to the doctor's office for stupid pregnancy bloodwork, which I already knew the outcome of. BFN! When AF showed up on Saturday, I immediately put a call in to the Dr. office because I thought it would be perfect...I already had to be there for my pg b/w & it would also be day 3 of my next cycle, so I could just call and get day 3 bloodwork added to what I needed to have drawn anyway & then I would be already started for the next IVF cycle...well, no such luck....somehow, even though I was the first person to be converted to IUI from the IVF-ers, I am still too late already? Grrrr that makes NO sense at all! So now, instead of waiting until March, I now have to wait until May...we were supposed to be doing our first IVF LAST May..and where has all of that waiting gotten us? Exactly...

To further add insult to injury, the doctor told me that I'm supposed to call her when the next AF starts...however, yesterday when I talked to the nurse, she had me schedule a follow-up to IVF appt and they couldn't get me in until MARCH 20th!!!!!! Well....that was the straw that broke the camel's back...I'm sick of this office and their stupid schedules. It isn't bad enough that the doctor is preaching to me that time isn't on my side and I have old eggs and that I need to be aggressive in my treatments, yet there is no wiggle-room in their dumb schedule to accommodate these kinds of needs - so these old eggs of mine will just be sitting around growing older...

So, I'm starting to put some feelers out about getting a second opinion and finding a clinic that has a more sensitive, caring atmosphere & who has a doctor who really seems like he wants to take the time to meet my needs and TRY to get us a baby....instead of our current doctor who has just never given me a vibe that she truly CARED about me as a person...all I really need is a little hope....

On a happier note, I won a book through Shannon's Bloggy Giveaway over at Rocks in My Dryer - it is a book called the Crossword Connection from Amy at Tiny Blessings. Thanks Amy!

God Bless & thanks for your prayers!

You're welcome! :)

I'd definitely be looking for another doctor. I had major complications in my pregnancies once I did finally get pregnant, and I know I wouldn't have gotten throught them without my wondeful doctor. She took my concerns very seriously all along, was aggressive with my treatments, and even hugged me a couple of times. ;) I hope you find someone great who will really work with you!

I ended up on your blog today through WFMW, and after browsing for a bit, I wanted to say I'm sorry for your struggle. As if your journey wasn't hard enough, your doctor is making it worse! I'm experiencing a bit of that with a relatively new RE. He has until Friday (my next appointment) to impress me, and then I'm on to someone else. Good luck!
