Doctor Visit

This week we thought Melissa would ovulate during the middle of the week. However, it is the middle of the week and that hasn't happened. Our doctor let us have a flexible arrangement during this cycle and told us just call the day before to set the appointment. We called and scheduled an appointment for Tuesday. On Tuesday morning we changed our mind because we didn't believe the strips were dark enough to warrant an insemination. The doctor who is out of the office on Wednesday had the receptionist call us today and told us to come in at 3:00. Melissa and I were worried because we felt it was too early, and that it would be a waste today. We decided to take a stand against her opinion. We voiced our concerns that we should wait until tomorrow and if we still are not closer to ovulation to inseminate and then use a trigger shot. Then we would have our second insemination either Friday or Saturday whenever we had a positive.

We felt a little guilty because both the doctor and the nurse came to the office just for our visit. But we were confident that we made the right decision and that we didn't feel pressured to "waste" one vial today. Our doctor understood and provided us the second option so we feel very grateful.

Wish us luck on our timing and that we don't need the trigger shot.

Your doc's office is so flexible and accomodating....how lucky. I think part of this process is about getting really good at advocating for yourself and your own knowledge and instincts about what your body is doing. My fingers are crossed for you!!

Good for you for standing up for yourselves. Only a few things are worse than a totally wasted vial of sperm.

Total good luck coming your way! Of course i think it's a little late because this post is 3 days old. What ended up happening?

i think you made the right decision to go with your gut--i believe firmly that the RE doesn't always know our bodies best.

Good luck!!
