love, life, and the pursuit of liberation
I just made an appointment today to see a new RE. To say I’m excited is an understatement. One of my blog buddies has a similar issue as I do and got favorable results from surgery. So I’m going to pursue something similar. I’m thinking about starting fresh with this new RE– not transferring my records from my previous doctor so that he can re-perform the diagnostic procedures because I’m afraid that he won’t if I bring my records. The first new RE (I’m going to start calling him Dr. Oldguy) that I had when I moved back didn’t seem to want to bother with redoing the diagnostic procedures and wanted to jump right into IVF, which my insurance didn’t cover. I’m really believing that there’s more to my story than simply blocked tubes because they were partially opened during the first HSG and then the dye didn’t even enter during the laparoscopy, so I’m wondering if there’s an adhesion or something. I just want to check to figure out what’s going on. That way if there is something going on, I would have exhausted all those options before my new insurance starts in April, which will allow me the opportunity to try IVF.
I’m really excited. I haven’t been this excited since 07 when we first started looking for donors and such. A and I talked about it for hours last night, and I think I’m in a good place to start this process again. I’m even okay with the idea that it may take me several tries to get pregnant. At least I know this time what obstacles I’m facing and what options I have. I’m so thankful that my insurance will cover IUI and such, so that the only thing I’m going to be coming out of pocket for are the frozen pops. No more paying for drugs, ultrasounds, etc beyond my normal copays. This is fabulous!
