Hello, and welcome to my blog! My name is Alex, I’m 34, TTC for #1, and I’m completely new to this blogging world. So I’m diving in, and participating in my first ICLW this month!
Hubs and I have been trying for a little one for a year – we started trying a few months before we were married last May. So far, we’ve had all the tests run, received the official diagnosis of Unexplained Infertility, did one IUI with injections, and was successful – for six magical (although hard and scary) days in early February I was pregnant and happy, until they told me that it was ectopic. That was awful, and one of the worst things I’ve gone through in my life. But we made it, and I’m feeling better, and last week AF finally decided to show, so we’re back on the TTC wagon. We have our WTF appointment with the RE this Wednesday, but we’re not doing fertility treatments until next month. For this month, I’m doing acupuncture, and herbs, and TTC naturally like we’ve never done it before... Because I REALLY don’t want to keep doing fertility treatments!!!
But assuming I will have to go back on the treatment path, are there any suggestions for what I should ask the RE in my WTF meeting? I assume we’re basically just going to do the IUI and injections again, because it technically worked, so I’m not sure why I even have to do this meeting before we start treatments again, but they insisted. I’d love to hear if I should be pushing for something different. My understanding is there’s not really anything they can do to prevent an ectopic pregnancy – is there?
I’m off to find more blogs – looking forward to it!!!
