- Wedding: May 2012
Hi ladies, this is a little but and it has been a very busy month or more so sorry haven’t been on lately to keep up. So, hubby and I have been trying to get pregnant since about Feb, but seriously trying since May. I have my cycle every 3 weeks or so.
Well I just have had this feeling we need to get checked. Hubby was already having concerns because of the fact he has epilepsy and CP, so he wanted more information before him and I REALLY started trying. So I started by going to a new OBGYN to get a second opinion and make sure my body is ready for a baby. I’m overweight and 36 yrs.
4 weeks ago I went to the OBGYN and had blood work done to check my thyroid and any other things. 3 weeks ago I got the call that my blood work came back good and my thyroid was normal. The dr also wanted me to get a HSG test performed to make sure my tubes were opening properly (But couldn’t schedule until my next cycle started). 2 weeks ago I also scheduled for my husband to get the Semin Analysis test submitted when we got back from vacation. so last week after being on vacation and then I getting food poisioning while on vacation, Iwas told to go to my normal dr to get tested for Diabeties. So Last Monday went and took care of his Semin Analysis and had problems getting the sample, then we waited…
Last Wed. I called my OBGYN Nurse back from the call she left the day before. She informed me that my AMH Hormone results had come in and my Ovarie reserve was low and that they wanted me to go to a Fertility dr. I was like what what??? Wait, slow down lady I can’t keep up with what you are trying to tell me. She repeated the info and in my brain I started freaking out….I asked her “does this mean I can’t have a baby?” She said no there have been many women whom have been able to get pregnant. I went to my normal dr. and got diabeties test done.
So Tuesday I went to get the HSG test (LADIES….it’s not too bad HOWEVER, the pain they say feels like the WORST Cramp EVER!!!!) I did find out right away that my tubes are opening properly and that looked good and normal. Couple hours later got a call that Hubby’s Swimmers are Normal and good too!! That was a great relieve.
Bottomline not pregnant yet b/c of me. 🙁 Right now I’m having a hard time processing all of this and trying to find out what the next things I can do NATURALLY before even going to this Fertility dr. in a week 1/2. Seeing babies makes me practically cry b/c I want this so badly.
I know that they could put me on Clomid (sp?) medicine that can be taken, but what are the issues/concerns. Can I please get advice, experiences. How soon did you get pregnant with a similar situation what did you do? I am a God believing lady whom knows miricals can happen and am trusting in that because we want a healthy baby!
