Whatcha Thinkin'?

Have I missed the bus?  Why didn't we see the OB/Gyn sooner?  Was I wrong to wait, to try to do this ourselves?  We changed our diets, started vitamins/supplements (by recommendations of forums posts found by Dr. Google), I started temping and using OPKs more consistently... 

They don't teach you about infertility in sex ed.  They show that crazy video of the sperm wriggling itself through the egg.  Guess what!  That's not a problem for me.  I know how to get the sperm in.  Unprotected sex, ass in the air, all the tricks in the book...and still, no babies!  Thanks for that lesson on how not to get pregnant though...really, so much help!  Abstinence only happens before a SA in this house.

Dr. M called with the SA results Tuesday. 

Good count, not so good morphology or motility :(  And, we've been busy with other household stuff, so it's kind of been put to the side.  Our options are another SA in 30 days or a referral to a urologist (but not the one in town, so we'd have to travel somewhere).  She also told me that she hasn't seen my results yet.  Which is odd #1, because they were done on THANKSGIVING! And, #2, because the MA left a message saying they were "normal."  So, she said to keep the appt on the 20th, possibly it's a quick phone call with the results, but it will be harder to re-schedule than to cancel.  Plus, she also wants to proceed with the HSG once I've healed up more.  She's just really concentrated on me being healed up!

So, that's where we are.  In need of a discussion of what to do next.  I'm glad we've started taking our vitamins on a more regular basis and balanced out our diet more :)  My best guess is we will redo the SA in a month and see what that says.  They've been known to change, at least that's what I've seen around the blogophere.  Feel free to chime in with any advice/opinions.  Comments are always welcome.  Unless I'm just talking to myself.  In which case, I comment plenty :D

And, for your viewing pleasure, here is the plan:

Step One:  LEEP (after abnormal PAP; CIN III - high grade cervical dysplasia)
Step Two:  BCP for 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6 months
Step Three:  cd3 blood work  (Dr. M's MA left VM stating "Normal" results)
Step Four:  SA for SS (Good count, low morphology & motility)
Step Five:  Follow-up Appt w/ Dr. M - Feb 20th, 2013

Step Six:  HSG  (more healing before this can take place)

    1. I am doing great! Just been out of the blog scene for a bit. I will update soon (at least I have it on my list :)

      And thanks so much for thinking of me.
      I've been wondering the same about you as of late, glad to see you're still out there making things happen!
