Fertility Update- taken another detour.

Pic source: Google
       You may remember back at the start of April I went to see a new doctor who was gracious and offered me help and sent me for blood tests etc which came back normal and I was left feeling like everything was going to be OK. Someone had listened so all was good, right?


       Time ticked by and I patiently waited for for either a positive OPK or a visit from Aunt Flo (sorry guys reading this). Neither came. In fact they still haven't on cycle day 114!!!! Yes you did read that write and no it isn't a miss print I actually mean cycle day One Hundred and Fourteen! **Faints**.
       So cycle day 103 after a tearful and emotional night hubby took himself down to the doctors at 8.15am and basically told the doctors receptionist that he wasn't leaving until I was seen. Alas, they gave him an appointment for me for that day at 10.20am. I took my mother- in- law in for back up in case I broke down and didn't make sense. This doctor like the last one listened and said there was more tests that can be done and I left that day with another form for more bloods (eeeep, needles *faints again*) and also a referral for a scan and the promise of a referral to a specialist. Woo hoo. The scan has come through already but I will probably have a wait for the specialist appointment.
      I am still waiting for the second lot of blood results. But the doctor did prescribe me something called Utovlan which will apparently bring on a visit from Old Aunt Flo after the 10 day course. We'll see. For now things are feeling bleak but hopeful, if that's even possible? Bleak because this time 3 years ago I was just about to fall pregnant with what should have been my fourth baby and 3 years on we're still getting nowhere and my dream of close age gaps has all but fizzled out now. But hopeful because at least things are getting done. If you have any stories about your fertility I would love to here them. Hopeful, sad, happy endings all welcome. Supplement recommendations etc are also welcome. I love hearing about every ones experiences.
The drug of hope ;)


  1. hello my lovely , Im Nicci from bubbaloves blog ... heres a quick round up of our struggle .. My older children are 14 and 13 and we started trying for a baby in 2010.... we had a first lot of test in mid 2011 as nothing was happening and my periods were very space (they think due to my autoimmune arthritis and medication used to treat it) and at the time i was 32 hubby 31 ...October 2011 we miscarried and in april 2012 we miscarried at 17 and half weeks, ... we are now 24 weeks pregnant :) After our first miscarriage we had blood test and sperm anaylasis as the older children are mine from a previous relationship ... all came back 'normal' after our second miscarriage we were sent to reoccurrent miscarriage clinic but luckily were pregnant again ...its hard work waiting for that time of the month! good luck and keep your chin up ... im 35 now and its been hard work but hopefully with my fingers crossed all will be ok this time :) good luck xxx
