So...after a year of not being happy with my OB/GYN, I went to see a new doctor this morning to discuss my m/c's and options.

First of all...he's pretty cute (yes, I'm married but I can still look ) and he was totally sensitive to my feelings/losses. He first told me how sorry he was for me. Then we started talking about my medical history with TTC, m/c, Clomid, progesterone, etc. He said that he wanted me to try to get pregnant naturally for the next three months and if nothing happens, then we'll try the Clomid again. He said that with Clomid it makes the lining of your uterus thinner and thinner as you use it month after month and that can cause m/c. Since our main goal is to not m/c anymore, he thought it'd be a good idea to track my ovulation with OPK's and BBT's and try to get preggo that way (since I have gotten pregnant on my own last year without Clomid).

He also said that if I do get pregnant that he wants me to take progesterone asap. He thinks it will help (or just help me not be so nervous). I am also taking a baby aspirin because he said it won't hurt and could help. He also had me take a HPT and it was negative so all the HCG is out of my body.

Finally, he did three bloodwork tests: He is checking my thyroid, blood clotting and immune disorders (the ones that could attack the baby). I'll have the results on Wednesday or Thursday. So I guess we'll go from there. If all my tests are ok then we'll probably get DH's "boys" checked out in December along with a uterus scan (the one with the dye).

Oh....and I took an OPK today...It's finally POSITIVE! So, if I don't reply to any posts, you know I'll be busy ...Thanks for listening girls!!!

I'm so happy for you that you've found a doc you like! Sounds like he's got a good plan in mind for you and is doing all he can to help you have a successful pg. That's got to be a relief for you! Please keep us posted on your test results.

I am so glad you had a good appt. It makes ALL the difference in the world to have confidence in your Dr & feel comfortable with them. It's amazing how hard that is to find. I wish you all kinds of good luck tonight & I hope I don't see you on here posting later or I'll have to kick your butt!
