I think that overall the appointment went well. I really like our RE. He's smart, seems kindhearted, and I like hearing him say that he's going to get us pregnant. Now I just need to believe it.
We went through possible plans. He would like to do a laparoscopy (which I have mentioned before) and the reason for that is two-fold. First, I have a couple of fibroids, both medium-sized. They are outside my uterus, but who the heck knows if they are contributing to all of this. Secondly, he would like to see if I have any endometriosis. Fair enough.
So, I did find out that insurance will cover the lap because of my fibroids. Hidden blessing there! Now, I just need to swing some work stuff around so I can take a few days off. Hopefully, I will be able to work that out tomorrow. Work is making me want to scream lately. But that's a whole other topic.
If insurance wouldn't have covered the lap, we would've gone right to IVF. However, if I get a clean uterus/tubes/etc, then we may try 1-2 rounds of IUI with injectibles. I told the RE point blank that we weren't going to do 3-4 IUI's with injectibles because of the cost. I really don't know how we are going to swing all of this, but we'll just start saving like crazy.
After our vacation in two weeks. Yay!!!!!
