Here we go again.
DH vericocele surgery didn't work so on to phase 2.
We saw the RE for the first time this morning. He said our two options are IVF-ICSI or donor sperm IUI. We already knew this and already knew we were going to do donor sperm IUI. He said he believe I have endometriosis, which I've thought for a long time now. He said there are 2 treatments for this; surgery and pregnancy. So he wants to try pregnancy first, kill 2 birds with 1 stone.
We have decided to do Clomid with our first try. And we have decided to start on my May cycle. So that gives us time to save up more money and have the baby after the holidays if it works. That way the holidays are less stressful. Though I would LOVE a baby for christmas, we both think it would be in our best interest to wait. Having a baby in Nov or Dec would be very difficult for both of us at work and home. So we wait some more.
We call him one our first day of the cycle. We order our donor sperm. I start clomid on day 3 (for 5 days?). On day 13 we come in for the sonorgram to check the follicle and lining. Then when the follicle is ready we give me a shot to make the folly pop, then 39 hours later I get inseminated. Then "two weeks later your either pregnant or your not."
I love this doctors straight forwardness and his optimism. I think this is a great match. He is also about saving the most amount of money. Our first visit only cost $20!!!!! I'm jumping out of my skin, but I've gotta wait till May. It'll be better for everyone. I am not a nice person to be around when I'm stressing over money or getting overwhelmed......
