Kelly at Kelly's Korner has a weekly link-up called Show Us Your Life, this week I am joining in.
This weeks topic is Infertility. A quick overview, I am a forty-one year old who took quite a long time to meet Mr. Right. I figured that once we got married the getting pregnant would be no big deal. HA! I love how God laughs at YOUR plans when HE has HIS own!
I did actually get pregnant very quickly, within six weeks of trying I got a positive. I was so happy and fir the first time I felt like my life was going somewhere. I began having problems and kept calling the doctor and was completely brushed off. At seven weeks, four days I miscarried - fourth of July weekend. It was awful. I had never called a doctor after hours until then and I was completely dismissed me. I have never been so upset. (Mind you I have worked in the medical field for most of my life - I have never seen this type of treatment ever) I did transfer from the original doctor two days after as she couldn't get me in but another WONDERFUL doctor could see me as a new patient sooner than the previous.
We have not been able to get pregnant since. I am now seeing an RE in Cleveland and did my first IUI+ Clomid on February. I did not get pregnant. I had to take this month 'off' as I had a cyst that 'should' disappear. The dr said we could try on our own, so provided I do not get a positive next week, my next IUI will probably be Easter Sunday. I think that sounds like a good day to make a baby!
I can't wait to read others journeys!
