Nothing but HARD work, there was nothing easy about it! Im at the gym 4-5 times a week for a couple hours each time rotating through muscles on different days and always doing abs/cardio everytime im there...along with a VERY healthy diet.

Awwww, thanks everyone!

Just thought i'd make a really quick/short update!

Jason and I are finally moving back into MA very soon! We have a new patient appointment set up with a new RE on July 5th! Just 14 more days! He was recommended to us by a fellow JM'er and im hoping that he is finally the right Dr for us and will be aggressive. Im hoping that he'll actually be more aggressive in the treatment of my MTHFR mutation, but im not counting on it. I just want to be pregnant! The only downside is that his office is about 2 hours away, but both Jason and I agreed if he is going to be the Dr that FINALLY does the right things for us, and feels like a good fit, then it will be totally worth the drive.

I about fell over when I saw your journal in bold and that the last entry was actually made by YOU!!!

I'm glad that you've got an appt. with a new Dr. with a great recommendation from someone whose opinion you trust. I know your previous RE wasn't workin' out by a long shot... so I'm really glad you've found someone else to try. I'm hopeful they will listen to you as well. You know your body better than anyone else.

While I'm done with the MA/RE treadmill, I really hope this Dr is able to resolve your mutation issue. I've only been going the natural TCM route for going on 2 weeks now and it's already working miracles with long standing health problems NO ONE has been able to identify or resolve!

I've been hoping for a sticky BFP for you for a long time... Here's hopin' we both get to be pg this Christmas!!

Erin, I saw this in her siggy:
Cycle #28 - Meeting with another new RE (July 5th), he is WONDERFUL! Ultrasound on 7/5 revealed a 49mm cyst and free fluid that needs to be removed ASAP, put on bcp 7/6, Lap surgery scheduled for August 1st.

It went great! Surgery is scheduled for one week from today and I am very hopeful for after the surgery! We havent discussed details for our first cycle with him yet, but I am pretty sure I will be on something stronger than Clomid for ovulation (injects) since apparantly im not even ovulating anymore. + an IUI. He thinks we do not need IVF yet for sure!! This cyst is a big reason I havent gotten pregnant lately.

So glad that you got to a new RE and they are actually moving forward to a real solution that will get you pregnant...I always thought that other doc was crazy saying that you should go right to IVF...
Will these guys be willing to put you on blood thinners immediately after the IUI to insure that the pregnancy will stick this time?
