A new plan in mind

It's been a while, 
But I'm back :) 

Scott and I had a great talk last night over dinner. 
We have been on a TTC break since June.
We have given thought to changing doctors,
we have talked about our options.
Injections, IUIs, IVF, and Adoption.
This is what we have decided to do.
In October we will go back to Dr. B
and voice our concerns about his office.
We will get his opinion on a new course of action
with use of injectables.
and we will do 3 more IUIs....
If we are not successful in those 3 months
we will begin the adoption process.
we will not "give up" trying on our own.
but we will stop all medical treatments
and focus on adopting.

We talked about IVF
a lot.
I have seen wonderful success
but I have also seen
miserable failure.
It's not something I am willing to risk right now.
I feel like spending the same amount of
money on an adopted child makes more sense for us at this time.
Now this doesn't mean we wont revisit the plan of
 medicated cycles or IVF one day.
and who knows maybe one of our next 3 IUI's will be successful?!
but...
For now it's nice to have a plan again.


  ps...I miss my period in August.. but all tests are still negative.
I am hoping AF will show up this month so I don't have to
go on provera again -_-

  6. That sounds like a great plan!! I'm totally with you on the adoption/IVF thing, I think we'd rather adopt than go through IVF. I'm just not sure I could handle it!

  7. That sounds like a great plan!!! I feel the same way about IVF vs adopting. I'm not ready for my baby to come from a Petri dish just yet...We had similar summers though! I skipped in July and August so after a visit to a new doctor I'm back on Provera. :( Hopefully AF will show up soon for you!

  12. It sucks that things haven't worked and your still not pregnant, but you come arcross strong and calm although I'm sure your journey is heart breaking. Sending you my thought and keeping everything crossed that a baby comes your way in whatever form that may be. All the best.
