Preliminary Tests

June 2010

We decided at the end of June 2010 that we wanted to get some diagnostic tests done to see where we stood on the infertility issues so we made a appt for the ob/gyn for my annual tests and to talk babies. :)

She decided that there was some preliminary tests that could be done to rule things out but that weren't too involved b/c we were'nt quite ready to commit to actively try for a baby. We had an U/S done in the office with a ton of lab work. I was their pin cushion that day!

Those came back and she wanted to do an HSG (Hysterosalpingogram) to check my uterus and fallopian tubes for any blockages or any other issues. That came back good so she determined that it would be good for me to see an RE (reproductive endocrinologist) for some further testing to have a jumping off point when we were ready to start trying.

The RE ran the gamut of tests and confirmed I had PCOS (PolyCystic Ovary Syndrome) and further confirmed what my OB/GYN suspected that I am able to ovulate and everything is "normal" during that but my body is stubborn and doesnt want to release any eggs, thus the infirtility.

So, the next plan was when we were ready to start trying we would most likely be on Clomid, but in the mean time, they put me on Metformin, prenatal vitamins, and recommended I eat healthier, and try to exercise more.

We talked it over and decided we wanted to get a house and be a little more stable before really trying to have a baby.

1 year passes

August 2010-August 2011: My DH finished B.L.E.T and D.O.C classes and got a F/T job with the local Sheriffs dept and we were still looking for a house. I have my yearly at the OB/GYN and explain we're still not quite ready to try and everything is still the same, no changes even with loosing some weight, eating healthier and changing some lifestyle habits.

September 2011- Our house prayers were answered and we bought out first home. We started talking about the possibility of babies again, but still wanted to get some things straight with the house and we put it off again. Several of our friends and family members were having babies and it really started to worry me that we would keep putting it off and time would get away from us and we'd be 40 and saying, oh let's have  a baby. Now, there is NOTHING wrong with having a baby @ 40, it's just not what I wanted in my life-timeline.
