This is my journey to motherhood. It's a bumpy road, but I'm traveling it whole heartedly.

Counselor Appt, Bad Day
So my first counselor appt went pretty good. She seems nice and doesn't seem to think my feelings about IF aren't warranted. She actually took Clomid hereself to get PG, so she does know a little about it. AF arrived on her own last night CD40, which is good since I didn't have to take Provera to make her start. Then to top it off I had my annual Pap. Remind me never ever to do this when on AF. If I had known AF was coming I would have re-scheduled, but since AF never shows on a regular basis, I had no idea she would come even at all. My GYN was nice about it all, but I was so grossed out by it. I told him about my new plan of action, and he understands and thinks it's probably a good idea to get my Thyroid regulated before starting back on IF treatments. He still wants to get Rob's Strict Morphology, but we may have to wait a while with all my medical bills piling up. Then as if it couldn't get any worse, I'm getting sick, yet again. I started getting a sore throat last night and cough this morning that's just gotten worse. I'm losing my voice and I sound like a boy going thru puberty, voice cracking and all. I have an appt first thing in the morning with an NP and my GP's office, which more than likely means another antibiotic. God can I have a break, please???
My name is Melissa and I'm 28 years old. I've been married to my husband for six years. We've been together since we were 18. We started TTC in May of 2007. I've been thru 8 rounds of Clomid, 3 IUIs, and IVF#1 which all resulted in BFNs. FET#1 and IVF#2 ended in chemical pregnancies. FET#2 resulted in our little miracle Liam, born 8-17-11. This is now my journey through motherhood and past infertility.
