Game Plan

Ok, I talked to Carylon tonight, and after talking with Darren a bunch we have come up with our game plan...

This month we're going to play it cool, hope with all our might that we get pregnant to avoid the future measures, and just relax and regroup.... count our pennies, stop spending frivolous money, see where we stand.. yada yada. Starting on the 3rd day of my cycle next month I will go to Carylon's office for blood work. They will check my progesterone level, thyroid, and something else I don't remember. On day 5 I will start clomid and take it through day 9 I believe. From there we will see what happens that month! The major risk with clomid is hyperstimulation Carylon said. Ok now, hopefully Evan doesn't make fun of me too much because I'm likely going to get this all jumbled up, hehe, but anyway, she said that it meant that my ovaries could produce too many follicles, in which case they could cause my ovaries to expand and possibly rupture. This also means that I could produce more than one egg, meaning chance of multiples, and that also there was a higher risk for miscarriage. At this stage in the game we are ok with all of that. Although it's not ideal we are just ready to try something. After that I will go to the RE. I'll probably end up going to one in Lubbock because Carylon really doesn't like the one in Odessa. Fine by me because then I'd get to see my family and friends, except for more costly because of gas/time from work... Carylon said she rather wait and have Darren's sperm analysis done later because a) we're almost 100% positive it's an issue with my body and b) an RE will really know what they're looking for and can give us the most explanation rather than a urologist. Carylon seems to think that the approach we are taking is best. She thinks a month on clomid and then going to the RE will be best for us both emotionally and financially. She realizes our complete desire to have a kid as soon as we can, lol, and knows that her office can only offer us so much. It is so great to have her to go to for advice and what not. She's been awesome. Actually, every single person who knows about us has been amazing... I, no WE, are truly blessed to have such amazing people in our lives.

In the mean time we'll continue to be incredibly in love, desperately wanting a little one, and just praising His name for all of the other blessings in our lives. Thank you for your prayers, and keep sending them our way! ;-)
