One step closer to #3!

I was able to go for my sonohystogram today. I went at 9:30 for bloodwork to check my Prolactin and of course a pregnancy test. I had a tiny glimmer of hope... but of course it was negative. The SHG showed possible polyps in my uterus however the RE thinks it may just look that way because my lining is so thick right now (I'm a 11dpo so AF is due tomorrow). He wants the same technician to perform the CD3 ultrasound and if she thinks it still looks odd, she'll do the SHG again. So, here's to hoping it's just my lining!!!

In between the blood work and the SHG, I saw our counselor. It felt good to talk to her for the hour I had. She gave me the number of another therapist to check out that used to see infertility and pregnancy loss patients at the RE clinic. We talked about small steps toward the adoption process if this IVF doesn't work for us. We also talked through some things to help me through when my anxiety is acting up. I plan on calling the woman that she gave me, it's just a matter of when.

I saw another therapist that she had recommended about a week ago. To make a long story short, I was not comfortable with her at all. She brought up the fact that Christian and I have only been married for 2 years and that she would like to see couples wait 4 years. She said this after she knew we were infertile. She then went on to tell me how high the divorce rate is and how the divorce rate is even higher for a second marriage. She was full of negative statistics and comments. I called her a few days later and left a message stating that I would not be back because I did not feel we were a good match. She called me today. She said she wants to talk person to person. Basically, she wants more money from me. I'm not calling her back. We don't need to have a breakup! We only had one session!

Place explicitive here.

UGH!!! This is so aggrevating! I feel AF coming on. I only need her to wait one more day! We'll both be so upset if we have to postpone this IVF one more month. We're ready for it now. It feels right now. If I can just get my body to cooperate!
