I'm not a patient person. When I want something, I do my best to "get 'er done" as quickly as possible, but lately it seems that I encounter a delay in everything. Whether it's trying to quickly run into a store for something, only to get stuck at the one register that's open with someone in front of me that needs to price check everything, or trying to quickly negotiate a settlement at work that turns into a huge ordeal. And of course, I can't just get pregnant like everyone else.
It's so frustrating. All the test show that I should be conceiving, and yet it's still not happening. Andrew even had his test (you know...the test), which turned up great results! His swimmers are strong and plenty. Phew! And although Andrew has said it's okay for me to blog about, this is all I'm saying about it. It's one of those things that when you bring it up with other couples who have/are experiencing infertility too, you can't help but crack up and share embarrassing stories. As for the general public, we keep it on the down low. :)
Anyway, so here I am, round 3 of Clomid and I'm crossing my fingers. I called my doctor to see what the next step is and he gave me some options, but he basically said, "Well, it's up to you and what your insurance covers or how much you want to spend..." That's the thing...infertility treatments are not cheap and most insurances do not cover the cost, so you really have to calculate what you can and can't afford. Again, frustrating!
So, to all of my readers out there that have/are experiencing this, what tips can you give me? What is the next step? At this point, I'm willing to try anything- holistic or medicinal! What worked for you?
