Thanks for getting back so soon. I know it seems frustrating and you just want to get the treatment you need to have your baby. But hey it's worth it at the end...best of all it's covered. It may be a little of a hassle doing all these extra little things. In a way it's kind of good..because our bodies can change from year to year.The best part of all...is that it's covered....The major thing now holding me back $$. It can be expensive. If it turns out I do need IVF I will have to kiss my dreams of having another baby goodbye. Because I know I cannot afford it . By the ways I did an HSG( I had to pay out of pocket) test as well with the dye about 3 years ago and it was uncomfortable and painful I cramped for about two weeks on and off and I also felt bloated (but honestly I would do it all over again if I knew my insurance would cover my infertility treatments). As far as the sperm analysis I know my boyfriend gave me a hard time just to do one, took me almost a yeat to convince him. That's all we can do is wait. As for me...I have trained myself to HOPE for the best and EXPECT the worst. That way I won't be too disappointed. Wish you and all the ladies on here the best of luck. Keep me posted hun View Thread
That is awesome news for both of you. Unfortunately my insurance does not cover any infertility treatment May I ask what kind of insurance do you have and what state are you in. I am 35 now will be 36 this year. I am feeling like I am running out of time. Hope to hear from you ladies soon.View Thread
Glad your new Ob/Gyn was more helpful, and has you feeling more hoepful. That's a good feeling to know, he's concerned about your concerns and is willing to assist you. I will keep my fingers crossed for you. As for me, started the clomid back up this month days 5-9 however I was short a pill, dropped it could not find it..so I did it days 5-8..Oh well. I will see what happens. Hopefully we will both get some hpt's soon...Yayyyyy!!!!! I have to track my ovulation now. As for the NaturaCure, I have heard ladies mentioning it on here. I did not here about the success on here. But I read some reviews on Amazon that were positive. I know it can get expensive. I don't know if I am ready to try it now. Hope to hear from you soon View Thread

Thank you for thinking of me everyday it means alot to me. Please continue to keep me in your prayers hun. I want to give you my email so we can keep in contact even more. If you'd like.

Lets see what happens. On my menstration now, tomorrow it will be cycle day 5...thinking about starting up my Clomid again.

OMG I love it!!!! The birth plan and all so happy for you my friend. Please, please keep in touch more. What the heck this is my email: email@example.com..from there we can exchange our names, numbers if you'd like ect.View Thread
Wow that's wonderful news. I am glad everything went well, 24 weeks that is awesome!! I wish I was a 6-8. I am 12-14 now, I have gained alot of weight. But I am working on it. Watching what I eat and working out 4 days a week. I am hoping to step it up soon even a little more. Believe it or not as long as the baby is at a healthy weight is best you don't gain too much weight. I am so surprise the doctor gives you the ok to exercise with your previous history. Really happy for you hun. Thanks for filling me on the details. You are better than me..I always have wanted to know the sex of the baby. As far as your VBAC I understand your frutstration and respect you would like to try to do it vaginally. But it's just that from what you've told me with all your medical history I also understand why they are concerned..it's a little risky. But only time will tell hun, what ever is best for you and the baby.
As for me no I have not started trying again or taking back on the meds. I am so tired of the miscarriages. I have five now all terminate 5-7 weeks very early. Something is wrong and no one has been able to shed the light on what is going on. Maybe if I had the money to go another specialist but I don't. I have never had this problem before conceiving so this difinitely sucks for me. It is also taking a toll on relationship with my boyfriend. He is 6 years younger than me, wants kids and it hasn't happened. I hate infertility. But nothing I can do but put it in God's hands. You are right longing for a child is difficult wether it's your first or tenth.
When you finished the round of Clomid did, you start testing with the ovulation kits? Have you noticed a changed in your discharge? Usually its a sort of slimy egg white sticky discharge, (TMI) around ovulation. That's good you found a new gyn, hopefully you can get the answers you need. I know your concern, I am also now 35 so time is running out for me too..Let me know how it works out...I still think you should take your second round of Clomid and check ovulation. That way you have as much information for the new the doctor as possible you can tell her, my other doctor did not do any bloodwork after clomid, however I started to test on cycle days such and such..and these are my findings, also bring what ever blookwork or medical information you have such as U/S ect from your other doctor. That's just what I would do. Keep me posted.....I may start up Clomid again let's see, what happens View Thread
You are welcome. How do you know you weren't ovulating? Was this proven with bloodwork? Have you ever been pregnant? Yes start testing like I had mentioned around day 11 and so on to make sure. If not demand a follow-up or start looking for another doctor. Depending on your insurance try finding an RE...sometimes they cover infertility office visits. I hear you I understand.. I am 35 yrs old, I also feel my biological clock ticking. I want to be a mother again. I don't know why this has to be so difficult. Wish you luck keep me posted hun.View Thread
Hi, I am kinda of in the same boat. Most ob/gyn's usually don't follow up with ultrasounds and bloodwork to check ovualtion ect. That is usually what an RE does. However most people can not afford to go to them, usually it's an out of pocket cost most insurances do not cover infertility...there are a few but for the most part most don't. I was on Clomid days 5-9 as well, but decided to stop it for a little while, becaise I get horrible side effects from it. For starters you should get a opk (ovulation predictor kit, basically to check if you are ovulating, kind of similar to a home pregnancy kit. Most women ovulate 14 days from the first day of their menstrual cycle, but all bodies are created differently, so you may want to start earlier maybe 10 or 11 and so on. As for me I have painful ovualation so I know when I am ovulating....that gives me a sign to start testing. Also check your cm, it should be like a clear slippery discharge (odorless) kinda like the clear part of an egg. With that being said, you can do what I did I called an RE office, to ask what is the workup for fertility the girl was nice enough to tell me...you can also check online it's extensive work up. The bloodwork has many test that include FSH, Prolactin, Luteinizing, Estradiol, Serum, progesterone levels ect..they are more do your research usually done on day 3-5 of your menstrual cycle. Once you have a list you can go to your ob/gyn's office to see if he/she will write you prescripton..you can't start there. Start monitoring your ovulation, there is an ovualation calendar right here on WebMd, on the internet there are tons, that calculate your ovulation days, as well as phone apps. And have intercourse on your most fertile days and try to get that work-up hope this helps. Good luck and God bless. I have to start myself but I have other issues....but keep me posted and keep in touch View Thread
Nice to hear from you...and that the pregnancy is moving along..wish you the best...with God's help you will make it past the 30 week mark. As for me nothing new. I feel like giving up at times. No he has not done the SA. I am not taking any meds right now. I feel like like my dreams at having another baby have diminished. I understand life is hectic...hopefully it won't be too long before I hear from you again.
Be well and take care....don't be gone for too long View Thread
I just want to say I do not know if you will get a response from them, since the post is 5 years ago. I have been suffering from recurrent miscarriges. Please let me know,if the combination of clomid with progesterone works for you. I have heard women start as soon as they get a bfp. But I have always wonder if the best time to start progesterone is during ovulation. Please keep me posted....many blessings to you...View Thread
