Hey everyone ... It has been a while since I have posted here but am glad to be back. DH and I have finally received an appointment with a reproductive endocrinologist and we see her on Tuesday. I have lost 67lbs since I saw any doctor about trying to conceive and hope that my continued weight loss will help. Sadly after surgery I thought I would get on a regular cycle but it has been just as screwed up as before.
Saw my RE today and she is absolutely amazing. I also saw one of her nurses and an intern and even they were awesome!!! She explained everything that is going on with me so easily. I went for bloodwork today since I'm CD2 and then since we really don't know if I'm truly ovulating I will go for bloodwork again the day my breasts get sore or the day after ... Since we don't really know what day it will fall on. I am also being sent for a hysterosalpingogram (a Special X-ray done with dye to make sure the are no blockages or issues with my tubes or uterus) after a 2 hue appointment with this RE I have learned more a d come out with more hope than I have had in the last 2 years of trying. Oh and she is also sending DH for a sa since no other doctor even asked about my husband.
Good luck with the HSG! From what I understand they can be pretty painful. Hopefully everything comes back clear though.
DH is just now getting an SA done too and so far the process has been annoying. First we found out the place closes at noon which was unexpected. Then we found out that you have to go down to the lab, pick up a cup, go back home and fill it, then return it within half an hour. I don't know why they didn't just give me a cup when I picked up the order. I also thought they were supposed to have rooms for that. I hope your experience goes better than ours and it comes back within healthy ranges.
Thanks Bokkechick for my wonderful siggy! TTC Blog
Our RE gave DH a cup, plastic bag and some labels for it. While we were still in Halifax he could have done it and brought it back to the hospital within an hour or now that we are home he has to fill his little cup and deliver it (still warm) within the hour. I now have to figure out which hospital accepts them.
I won't be getting the HSG for a bit yet so I am hoping other things work out before I need it.
