Doctor's Appointment :)

This morning the moment I have been anxiously awaiting was finally here: I was able to meet with Dr Ku again and I am so excited to say that Husband and I can finally begin treatment! After discussing different options, we were able to formulate a "game plan" for the next several weeks that will go something like this.......

First, I get to start the progesterone pills- again. Once I have completed those, I will go in for an ultrasound to make sure everything looks ok to move forward with treatment. As long as everything looks normal, I will begin another cycle of Clomid. Since Clomid alone has not worked in the past, I will be taking hormone shots as well at the same time. Then after both the Clomid and shots, I will go back in for another ultrasound- and this time they will see if there are eggs ready to be released. After that.....we say a lot of prayers that everything works!

Of all the options we discussed, we chose this because while I may be desperate for Baby Hill, I am not desperate for 10 Baby Hills- no octomom here! So this is a big step forward for us, but at the same time we have chosen a "conservative" option. (This is probably the time where I should point out that everyone is different- this plan may not be the most logical for others. I use the word conservative lightly because while this seems like a more safe route to take, I would never judge other people's decisions to pursue more aggressive treatment- and it is very possible that I could end up pursuing other options as well. I know that some people may read this that have chosen different paths, and to that I say "great! whatever works best for you!")

So, Husband and I are looking forward to what may come of the next couple of weeks! It feels so good to know that we are finally moving forward (rather than standing at a standstill while we complete all kinds of tests). I am also anxious to share everything with all of you along the way!

Now, I have put cleaning the house off long enough- I think its about time to actually go do it! My dad is coming to visit for the weekend and I am so happy I have some good news to share with him :)

Happy Weekend!
