Thanks and Status Update

Thanks for everyone's comments the other day! I know I say it all the time, but it is such a blessing to have both people who have experienced infertility and those who are close to me to be praying for us and encouraging us! I really enjoyed hearing everyone's thoughts on the infertility treatment matter and Barry and I had some good discussion around them.

I talked to my doctor last week and he is recommending Clomid starting with this next cycle. (I mean hopefully/prayerfully there will not be a next cycle, but you a back up plan :). ) He wants Barry to go ahead and as soon as possible do another semen analysis to check on that status. Their clinic in Mobile does something different when analyzing he wants us to come on down to Mobile again for this. We will probably do that right after the first of the year because Barry used up every single hour of vacation time this year. I guess that's what you get for going to Hawaii, going on a cruise and taking MANY long weekend trips in the same year... :) After we get the results of his semen analysis the doctor will decide whether to recommend just the Clomid or Clomid with injectables and the IUI.

So the plan at this point is to call the office on cycle day 1 to get the Clomid and to get the semen analysis as soon as we can. The doctor was really excited to hear that we had been doing the Sugar Busters diet and taking the Juice Plus+ supplements. Hopefully those things will help so much that like I said, there will be no calling his office on cycle day 1!!

I hope everyone has a VERY MERRY CHRISTMAS!!!!
