I'm putting my foot down with DH and with doctors. I've had enough. Four years of TTC..... 7 losses and still not a single answer. The doctors haven't done much testing.... what they have done all came back normal so they just kind of pushed us to the side with a "Keep trying". That was mostly DH's fault. He made it clear at each appointment that he didn't want to get into expensive treatments.

I'm 30 years old. I want more babies (hopefully 3 more). I want to be pregnant again and for my husband to experience it too. I am not okay with not having any more children. While adoption may be okay later, I desperately want one more pregnancy, and while this might sound really stupid, at this point I really don't care what it costs.

I told DH that I am doing some research and finding a new doctor. I am going to demand some testing done. (My insurance covers testing, but no treatments). I want answers. I want a baby. I want a successful pregnancy. I'm going to find a doctor and have the tests done. After that, I am going to have a baby. I'm doing this with or without DH. After all...... there is donor sperm! I'm only kidding there of course. lol DH will definitely be on board once I actually get started. He just worries about the bills. I'm working right now to help pay the bills though, and I went and got all the funding I need to put myself through school so that didn't affect him at all financially. Since I am going to school full time and still working the same number of hours I think the least he can do is give in a little bit on this!

Anyway..... I am really excited about getting the ball rolling again. If you all have any tests that you have had done that you can recommend, please let me know. I'm researching, but it's a bit overwhelming. In the past I've kind of just trusted the doctors to do what needed done. I really need to be more proactive this time around and be my own advocate.

Steph- just passing through and saw this. WTG on putting your foot down!

I really hope you find a great DR to help you. If you didn't mind driving a ways I had an awesome RE in Columbia MO. Not sure where in Iowa you are though. His rep with patients is fantastic, but other RE's think he's to aggressive.

Sam, I'd love to have the name of your RE. I have actually been considering going as fall as Chicago and Columbia is definitely a lot closer!
