The visit

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!!!!!

Yay on a good meeting where you leave feeling comfortable, and possibly? optimistic!

Good luck with the lap, and yay on insurance covering it as well!

I wish you quick success with the IUI and for only 1 to do the job!

so glad insurance covers the lap. that's huge. i think that only doing a few IUIs is totally appropriate, but i'm no RE. :)

glad that things seemed to go well and you are on the road!!!

As the Husband I agree with Scrambled that I really like the RE and I thought our appointment went great. Here's to praying the surgery takes care of things. Going into the room by myself and making samples is really not the thing I dreamed of when I thought about having a family.
