Hi hopeful: Thanks for the post! Your husband sounds a lot like mine. I think he doesn't want to talk about adoption now because he thinks that if we start to talk about it and pursue it...that I will give up on the thought of having our own. Which I never will. But I do see adoption as an option and I think he will too, one day. In his eyes, we have not been trying long enough. But I try to explain to him (and others) that it's not about how long you have been trying. It's about whether or not you have EVER been sucessful and we haven't as of yet. Some people get pregnant right away while others take a little longer. But there is nothing that says the longer you try the better your chances are. In reality I think (and I might be wrong), the longer you go without success the harder it is to conceive.
I'm not getting any younger. I hear the stats all the time about age and pregnancy. Now there are cases of someone's mom, aunt, cousin or whatever that has been able to conceive naturally at 50 BUT.....that's not an everyday thing. Not taking anything away from their miracle.
I do think he would consider adoption if it came to that. He did just tell me the other day that he will support me no matter what I decide. He know how bad I want to be a mommy.
I know there are many children out there that need loving homes. I would even consider adoption if I do have a biological child.
I had a cyst before I started clomid. I remember I couldnt start my treatment until the cysts went away. It did on it's own. Yesterday was the last day of my BCP so my AF should be here in the next couple of days. Once it starts I have to go in to check for cysts also. I'm a little nervous. I just want everything to go well.
Last time, once I started the stimulating drugs, I had to go in everday for the u/s and blood test for the hormone levels. I was in the same boat as you. Having to wait to get that phone call later on in the day to see what your level is. Then running back to the doctor every other day to have a u/s and more blood test. Bad enough you have to prick yourself every night. Then you have to go to the doctor and have him prick you. I dont see how drug addicts do it. But I digress...
Thanks for all the well wishes. Same to you. I'll be sending baby dust and prayers to you. Please keep me posted on your progress. Also, let me know what if anything they decide to do about the cyst or the stims?
BTW, that is so wonderful about your ins covering IF 100%.
