That Time of Year Again

Yup, it's that time of year again. Time for the ole Annual Exam! Yipppeeee!

Actually, I really like my Gyno/Nurse Practitioner. She is very good. But, the appointment also marks two years (can you believe it?!?! two years!!!!!) of trying with no success. It also marks a point where we need to make some decisions. You know those pesky decisions I've been writing about for so long? Well, I finally need to make some.

Proceed with more testing with my regular doc and get a clear diagnosis?
Skip the middle man and go straight to the fertility specialist (which we really can't afford and insurance doesn't cover one bit)?
Just keep on the same path as we are now (if it happens, it happens)?
Jump over all pregnancy options and figure out how we feel about adoption and fostering?

I'm a Libra, so I labor over these kinds of decisions. It seems like every one has valid options that could work out for us. How do you know if you are making the RIGHT decision? What if you make the WRONG one?

Oy! Deciding what color to paint the bedrooms is prooving to be so much easier.

Hey, don't know what you expect with "clear diagnosis" but just wanted to share ....

that we've been through 2 RE's (1 in ID and 1 in TX) and we're currently seeking 2nd and 3rd opinions from RE's in NY (done) and in CO (next month), from supposed to be top, leading-edge clinics. The degree of thoroughness, available technology and if I may say, too, knowledge base appears to be remarkably more on those top clinics.

So, if there are differences between RE's, what more between OB/GYNE and RE?

I heard that there is a good Fertility clinic in Seattle. You may want to check that out...

I do hope though that you won't need to do a lot of those RE's obstrusive procedures though... hope your annual is clear!!!
