Dr. D..The Best Doctor in the Sea!

L.O.V.E. 
our new Dr.! 
Dr. D was absolutely AHmazing! 
He said so much I hope I can remember it all!
1st off.. the biggest question answered.. 
Progesterone!
A MUST! 
He asked my history and I whipped out my binder
When I got to our last pregnancy he said okay and 
you were on progesterone the full 12 weeks?
NOPE...was stopped after the first beta!
He was baffled! 
basically he said this.. 
woman with pcos tend to ovulate later, 
when you ovulate later that soft fertile ground 
is on it's way out, progesterone will keep that 
ground soft and ready for the egg to implant for the long run. 
When they stopped my progesterone it stopped my 
ground from continuing to be a comfy resting place for our 
tiny baby. He said that he always ALWAYS uses
progesterone in the first trimester it can't hurt and can only help! 
He said that when I was pregnant last time and they did 2 HCG tests
then stopped that was mistake number 2... 
never ever go off 2 hcg tests! 
He said he is ready to help me and that he 
has full faith that we can get me pregnant 
and deliver a healthy baby. 
The day I find out I am pregnant I get 
his personal cell number and can text or call him 
any time day or night, if I feel like I need an ultrasound 
for reassurance or whatever the case maybe 
to just call/text him. He stated that by week 9 
I will have already seen him 3 times at least!
Pregnancy is important to him. 
He has a true passion for bringing healthy babies 
into the world. 
He gave me a script of provera to bring AF to town. 
We are meeting again in a month 
and in the mean time I have homework! 
he gave me a script for adipex 
and a whole case of prenatal.
He would like me to work on losing 10% of my body 
weight and start making my "grounds" fertile. 
When we meet again he will do a panel of tests 
my LH my FSH and more that I can't remember. 
Then we will go from there. 
He is thinking we may try clomid again, paired with progesterone 
for at least 14 weeks into a pregnancy. 
and also continuing the Metformin....
I feel so much more confident with him on our team! 
crossing my fingers Dr. D  was our missing puzzle piece 
that we just found!

  3. Dr. D sounds amazing!! I hadn't realized how different your old doctor's protocol was...makes so much sense about the progesterone! I was on it for the whole first trimester both times as well, and I'm pretty sure I had 5 betas the first time and 4 the second. I love that he's the type of doctor who is on call 24/7. You can tell he's committed, and that's exactly what you and Scott deserve! I'm so, SO hopeful for you =) Love and baby dust!! XOXOXO

  5. Somehow I came across your blog and it made me SO happy! Once we found our doctor, it was like God had given us the greatest! We had the same issues with progesterone, and if our previous doctor would have put me on it, or at least tested me to see if I was deficient, we wouldn't have miscarried twice. I love that your doctor cares about you, your future baby, and making both you and your husband feel reassured with him! You should ask him if you could try Clomid and Femara together (if Clomid doesn't work) because I know many people with PCOS who have had great success with this combination! I'm happy for you!

  11. This is great news!! Something I find interesting though... I was actually taking adipex a couple months leading up to my pregnancy. I stopped adipex on May 1st to "clear out my system" for our first IUI scheduled in June and then found out I was pregnant on May 23rd! Not saying that was what helped me get KU but......Sooo yeah, I have a good good feeling about his plan for you! FX!!
