The New Plan

Today Travis and I met with my new RE here in Texas.
He had great online reviews and had won several "favorite doctor" awards, 
so I was hoping he would live up to the hype.
I can see why everyone loves him.
He is wonderful. 
He took his time and explained things, answered any questions we had, listened to
what I had to say, and never made me feel rushed to get to the next patient. 

We discussed everything and created our new plan.
I had an idea going in to this appointment what treatment I wanted to try next. 
He listened and gave me his opinion. 
He did say that if I wasn't pregnant in the next 2 cycles 
he wanted to check to see if I had endometriosis.
But since that requires surgery and being completely knocked out, he wanted to 
wait to do that until I had at least 4 unsuccessful attempts at getting pregnant.

So, as soon as my next cycle starts I will start Femara
No Clomid this cycle, although Femara is a similar drug. 
In addition to Femara I will be giving myself Gonal F injections every other day.
At CD9 I will have an ultrasound to see how my follies are growing, and adjust the injections as needed.
He also agreed that I needed help with my progesterone.
So I will be adding that to the mix this cycle as well after my IUI procedure.

Overall, I'm really happy with our new plan.
Today I have hope!
Tomorrow could be another story, but for today I'm hopeful for this cycle.
Now I just continue to wait....and wait...and wait for my next cycle to begin.


  1. Best of luck to you my friend. I also have hope!

  2. So glad that you are happy with the Dr. So important. Also, I'm sure it feels awesome to have a plan...the waiting and unanswered questions part of IF sucks. Thinking of you!

  3. Hope is a very important thing to have! I lost it several times along our way. Good luck with the new doctor and new plan!!

  4. I got pg with my son with Femara!!! Great drug. Good luck girl!!!

  5. Sounds like a great plan! Good luck!
