FOLLOW UP from appt.

SO, DH and I had our first appt with the RE today =)


I LOVED HER!! Dh is convinced I said "I love you" before we left lol, in  ACTUALLITY, I said "Nice meeting you", but he keeps arguing with me lol. anyway, she was awesome, she was a person, a real person, very personable. (if that makes sense). We clicked instantly! She actually went to school with my OB wich is great, so shes going to talk to her and see if she can code some of the tests so Kaiser can cover some of it! If can be sooo expensive, hopefully I can get a break on it!


When it came to the ultrasound, it was uncomfortable but not painfully. The linning on my uterus looks great. There wasnt any endometriosis in my ovaries (yay!!) AND i have HUGE ovaries, huge lol Dr. Aimee said I had a LOT of eggs, so many, I could open shop=) good to know.


Here is the plan: SA for DH. Apparently the one kaiser does, it VERY generic. They dont actually look at his sperm under a microscope! so, $200 SA for Dh. For me, the next step is a 3 FSH, and a Saline infusion sonogram. She also wants us to do genetic testing for cystic fibrosis. Were not sure how we feel about this yet.


Somethings I learned today:


PRESEED does kill sperm, just slower than other lubs that are spermacides.


I should not take motrin because it can keep me a female from ovulating


motrin can inhibit sperm from binding to the egg. (when taken by men)


So, I'm feelin good! ANY thoughts?? ANY norcal girls that are looking for an infertility specialist in San Ramon, check out Laurel fertility, I love them!!

oh I'm so happy for you! I totally relate to that ecstatic feeling of clicking with the right doctor and feeling like someone is really going to HELP you!


And thanks for the tip about Pre-seed. My husband and I were just looking at it tonight!

Odess-Yes! It was a great feeling, especially since Dh and I have an age difference, and I started ttc VERY young, I didnt want to be judged. She understood! No judgement, it was great. About the preseed, she said its a good preseed IF you need a lube, but its ideal to not use lube =)


WM-yeah! hahah, yaya for huge ovaries lol, and yay for tons of eggs! she thinks that why im in so much pain every month, because lots of fluid is released with the egg (sometimes it gets trapped inside the ovaries) which is irritating to the uterus. then i take MOTRIN, bad bad bad! so, lesson learned!

Ok I just did some reading and it seems like preseed only has one ingredient that is a cause for concern, opposed to the others that have 3 plus bad ingredients. Better than saliva or KY I suppose! Thanks for updating that on here!


I'm glad you found a good RE!

Jackie- we are doing the saline sonogram instead of the HSG, she said shell be able to see if my tubes are open using it. The only problem with the CF test, its expensive, insurance wont cover it. this is all out of pocket. She said the saline is more uterus friendly, the dye is very irritating, so its less painful.


Cf test: 200


3 FHS tests: 225


SA: 200


Saline sonogram: 475


 


DH is very afraid of going through all of our money quickly, hes a money hoarder, so he wants to do this in "steps" and not ALL this money. I dunno tho, im so confused
