So, encouraging news on the (in)fertility front.
1. Sonohysterogram performed this week findings: Normal cavity, patent tubes. No fibroids, polyps or adhesions.
2. SA (semen analysis): All parameters normal. Better than normal in most cases.
3. Bloodwork: Normal as far as I know (I'm basing this on my last day 3 bloodwork done back in September...where my prolactin level was 18.8. We redid it for the RE, but I have no reason to believe any of the results were abnormal since no one has called me).
I'm not exactly sure where to go from here. On the one hand, 'Great! We're normal'...too bad that doesn't equal PREGNANT. On the other hand, I almost wanted there to be SOMETHING just so that there would be something to fix! I'm tired of our reproductive history being such a head scratcher. Plus I still have no reason for the on-going spotting I'm having before each period. Do we proceed with (EXPENSIVE) IUI treatments when nothing in our history or results seems to warrant them? I know we technically got pregnant on our own the first time...but it took 8 months and was abnormal from the start. The RE said that if a normal healthy woman isn't pregnant in 3 to 6 months of properly timed intercourse then you've likely got a problem. But what that problem might be they seem to have few answers for.
I think I'll have to mull this over some more. I mean technically it's *only* been 3 months of 'properly timed' intercourse that have resulted in no pregnancy for us...but how long do we wait? And what, with medical intervention, are we trying to fix if all of our results are just fine?
Oh, and just for the extra added cherry on top today my husband got an e-mail from the friends that I referred back to in this post. They will be home from Singapore at Christmas for a visit and...by the way...their baby is due the end of April (right around Aidan's first 'dirthday').
Super. Can't wait to see them.
How long did it take for you to get pregnant? Did it feel like forever at the time?
