Hello girls, I hope you are all well J
Things just got so busy with work (helping Alex) and nothing to report from me baby making wise, so I had stayed away feeling I didn't have much to contribute.
Jen, a huuuuuuge congrats to you my darling….wooohoooo!!!!
Kez, good luck for next week….I have fingers & toes crossed for you that all goes well.
Well my news is I went and saw a FS in Bella Vista earlier this week, after many discussions (and many tears) with Alex about the fact that nothing was happening, and so he agreed we could go and chat to a FS about our options. I was expecting the FS to just look at me and tell me that we were wasting our time, but he seemed quite optimistic as I got preggers twice naturally in my 40s, even though those pregnancies ended in MC. Alex's younger age also helped I think.
I had about 12 vials of blood taken for a mountain of tests including AMH and Alex had only 1 taken. We are both having the chromosome testing done, as FS said he didn't want to go ahead with a round of IVF, if that's what we decide we want to do, without being armed with as much info as possible. Depending on the results, which fingers crossed will be OK, we will start IVF.
I also had an ultrasound done while we were there, and FS found only 2 follies on my right side (which he said is normal for my age) and 5 follies on the left. Not too many but at least there were some there!!!
I cannot tell you all how incredibly happy and relieved I am that Alex has done a complete turnaround and is now on the same page AND is even considering IVF!!!! I think he needed to hear it from the FS….coming from me it just made it look like I was nagging. The FS was brutally honest and Alex took note thank goodness!!!!
Anyhoo, that's my news. As soon as we have all the results, assuming they are all good, it will be go, go, go to hopefully get me pregnant before Christmas!!!!
