Ok, I wasn't really nervous when I got there but instead I sat in bewilderment wondering how I got this far & that I was at an "IN"fertility specialist. I just couldn't really grasp the idea that I was about to step into the thoughts of HSGs, HCG shots, IUIs & IVF treatments. Well, the dr seems to be a great guy. He wants to try & get this cycle to be a winner so here is what is going to happen in the next few days...

1) Tomorrow I go in for a follicle & lining scan.
2) If there are good follicles, he will give me the HCG trigger shot & we can decide to...
A) BD like crazy, or
B) IUI
3) Progesterone supplements for after O.

That simple...yep, he is willing to go for it this cycle & believes we will be successful. I'm not getting my hopes up b/c I am so use to not getting that 2nd line that I don't want to work myself into a frenzy. If it doesn't work out this cycle, then we go through the regular things such as blood on CD 3, HCG before CD 10, SA for DH, & new medicine that isn't Clomid. Apparently there is something better. WAAHOO!!!! Now, this is all going to be a pretty penny but anything is worth having a baby in my arms. So, there you have it, my RE appt.

OH>>>>>>No more EPO for me! He said that EPO has a little bit of estrogen in it & may adversely affect the Clomid!!!!!
