This holiday season has been a little harder with TTC. I really thought I would be able to at least be pregnant by now. But, obviously not. I finally got into see my new gyn after two months of waiting. I brought in my huge packet of charts and DH's SA results. So the nurse has me undress and put on my little paper "outfit" and then the doctor came in and started talking to me. I was thinking in my head, really couldn't we either do the pap first and let me get dressed or not have me undress until after our conversation (I mean I just met this doctor for the first time!). Anyway, he asked me some questions and said he wants DH to redo the SA and me to go get an HSG. After that he said he would refer me to an RE. Then after we were wrapping up the appointment he said no, I am just putting in your referral to the RE now (he was concerned about my old age). But, you can expect your insurance to reject it. So, I am sort of in limbo. I'm also uncertain if I will be able to get into the HSG next cycle, because I have to be out of town on business during the time I expect they will want to schedule me. So, I guess slowly I am moving forward to figuring out more of what is going on. I am excited that this cycle I had almost no mid-cycle bleeding and that is a first in a long time unless I am on Clomid, which I am not right now. So I take that as a good sign and perhaps the Metformin is working? I am still hoping for a 2010 baby. In fact I have convinced DH to begin painting the "guest room", which will become our nursery. I figure I will create an inviting space so a baby will want to join us!
ttc can be a long and tough process. Hang in there. DH and I were ttc for nearly two years before getting the bfp, so I know what it's like. Good luck with the new Dr. I thinks it's great that you are painting the nursury, DH and I have a room that we kept empty... we called it the "maybe baby" room. Hopefully pretty soon you will be sharing your bfb with us!
I know exactly how you feel. I went through all of the same tests and DH had SA done (which was low). We finally decided to go see a Infertility Specialist b/c nothing was happening. To our surprise I was already pg when I went to see him and didn't know it. It took us 18 long months to get pg with Jadon.
I'm glad you're figuring out what is going on. Hang in there and try not to stress too much.
It is frustrating, TTC for so long, and then still feeling like you're in limbo. Did the doc say why he expects your insurance to deny coverage? You've been TTC for a while now, and usually in our age group, they want us to TTC for 6 months before being referred to fertility specialists. Hopefully you'll hear something soon. With the HSG, they wanted to do mine pretty early in the cycle, I believe it was to be scheduled before ovulation. I was to call the nurse the 1st day of my cycle and we scheduled it then. Good luck sweetie!!!! and I too think it's a great idea to paint the room. What color are you thinking about?
Since I switched insurance this year, he thinks that they will have a problem getting a referral on the first visit and before he runs those tests. So, I am not holding my breath, since I know the insurance will not want to pay for it. I'm just hoping they don't call it a preexisting condition.
We went ahead and painted over the holidays. It's a band of horizontal stripes in green, beige, and "java". I'll have to get some pics after we do the touching up. I like how it turned out, but others have been skeptical (it is a bright green!). At first I was going to have an owl nursery, but now I think I will aim for a forest theme. I didn't really want to do anything pink or blue, so I figured this would work for either sex and we could do it right away.
Insurance companies are a pain to deal with. I hope they take in consideration the time you have been TTC and approve this referral. Good luck with that, and do keep us posted!!
and I love how your room sounds. You need to post some pics so we can see. A forest or owl theme would be adorable and would work for either a boy or girl. I bet it looks so adorable!!! The room we'll probably be using for our LO is painted green, which is a wonderful color for either boy or girl and can be accented with all sorts of other colors to make it perfect for the LO.
