Im sure you all remember my break down a few months ago and deciding to be done TTC (well how can you ever really be DONE TTC? Were not preventing of course, im just not obsessing). Anyway, I had said that im not ready to spend the 14K on IVF yet and I wasnt happy with my Dr's anyway. Im focusing right now on being healthy and toning up (lost 24lbs down since December!). I thought I was doing fine, not really thinking about it at all, but this past weekend I had a baby shower for one of my best friends on Saturday then Mothers Day on Sunday. It was VERY tough and emotional, I cried quite a lot. I realized that im definitely not okay with this, and I cant fool myself into thinking I am.

I've pretty much decided that at the end of the summer if im not pregnant (Which I HIGHLY doubt I will be) that we will get very aggressive again. We are waiting until the end of the summer because it has been really, REALLY great for me, and us, to relax a little bit. I am going to contact a new Dr (Already know which one, thanks Sam!) and he is two hours away but I deserve great treatment and I will settle for nothing less anymore. I have had crappy Dr's for two and a half years and I 100% believe that is contributing to not getting pregnant (or staying pregnant!). So thats that, around the end of July I will be contacting the new Dr. Im ready to be done with this part of my life and have a baby! Two and a half years is way too long

Anyway, thats my little update. Nothing really happening yet but I just wanted to let you all know where we are at!

Cycle #16 - Clomid (100mg) - BFN, Cycle #17 - Clomid (100mg)+Trigger+IUI - BFN
Cycle #18 - Acupuncture+Clomid (100mg) - BFN
Cycle #19-27 - 2 Soy (160mg) cycles, the rest all natural also 30lbs lost!! - BFN's
Cycle #28 - New RE is GREAT! Put on bcp 7/6/11, Lap surgery 8/1/11- Tubal cyst (5cm) found and removed, Uterine Septum removed, and Stage II-III endo removed. Cycle #29 - All Natural - BFN, Cycle #30 - All Natural - BFN, Cycle#31 - All Natural - BFN, DONE TTC FOR NOW

YAY, I'm so glad to hear this Ashley. I'm hoping you won't need this doctor and you will be pregnant on your own by the end of the summer. But in the sad case that you do end up going to the doctor, I wish you tons of luck and love!
