An actual infertility-related post

What?! I know, right? Lol. I hope y’all have enjoyed (or at least haven’t minded!) my A to Z challenge posts lately. It has been refreshing to write about different things for a change.

I really don’t have much to report, other than that there is nothing to report. 😦

Easter was surprisingly difficult. It was all the family photos on Face.book that did it. While of course I am happy for my friends who have beautiful kids hunting Easter eggs or posing with the bunny, and even though I “Liked” them, I found myself having a hard time with it. Honey Bear and I did get to spend a couple of hours with some work friends, which was a good time. Even though they have twin boys, that didn’t bother me at all. Just the Face.book stuff for some reason.

Tuesday I had my annual lady exam where I try to look dignified draped with sheets and weird poncho-type upper body coverings. The exam itself was uneventful. Dr. S and I did discuss my recent Specialist Guy visit and I told him I didn’t think I’d be going back to see him. Dr. S mentioned there is another doctor at that clinic that I could request to see instead. Or we could go to clinics in a couple of other cities not as close to us.

Dr. S is really nice, and I think he genuinely wants us to get pregnant, but I think he really has no clue about how that is going to actually happen for us. He seems to think since we have done 4 IUIs that we should head right to IVF. To the argument that we can’t afford it, he suggests taking out a credit card. Sigh. I know people do that, and I cannot fault them for their financial decisions. But that is not a decision we can make. Maybe if the success rate was 100%, but that’s not the case. So, what’s next is still undecided.

I am going to start taking the Metformin again to help with the PCOS symptoms. I hadn’t been taking it the last couple of months while I had my surgery and then while we waited to see Specialist Guy, then started our break. Unfortunately, many of my symptoms would best be helped with birth control pills, but that is clearly counterintuitive for us at this point.
