The Fertility Carousel

Reaching for the brass ring on the fertility carousel (again!). (Because I already caught the brass ring on the infertility carousel and I want to get rid of it!) Two years of trying to conceive, but I finally got baby E. Now we begin going around and around again. Infertility sucks.

Meeting the Reproductive Endocrinologist

A reproductive endocrinologist (RE) is the real name of what most people call an "infertility specialist". Rob and I went and met with one yesterday.

Dr. Traci Desplinter was very nice. We waited ages to see her, but to be fair the city was flooding that day so she had a good excuse for getting to work late. After listening to what all we'd done and looking at the records from my gyno, she said that she'd like to do some bloodwork and an internal ultrasound to see if I ovulated. Turns out I did (as I knew from my OPK tests). Since I was mid-cycle when I saw her, I'm not sure there was too much she could do. But she did put me on progesterone suppositories. Ooh yeah, lots of fun.

So the next step is to wait until the end of this cycle and see what happens.

P.S. She thinks the cervical stenosis thing is a red herring. If blood can get out, swimmers can get in.
