Update on test.

Well I talked with my nurse. She didn't really have much to say to me either, so she said that she'd talk to Dr G and give me a call back.

They want to draw blood again on Wednesday, do a sono, and have an office visit with Dr G. He suggested to my nurse ("J") that she go ahead and call the specialist and set up an appointment. He "has a few more tricks up his sleeve". I feel like crying, actually...currently, I'm trying not to.

It just seems that the odds are against me. I get my hopes up just to get them shattered again. I honestly don't know how much more of this I can handle.

So basically, Wednesday is going to be another $300.00. Which brings my total up to oh I don't know, $1,000.00? We are still trying to get them to recode the rest of them (Clif will be calling them on Monday).

I guess I'll have to call and see how the specialist works, and if my insurance doesn't work, how much is a consultation with him cost me. And I'll be trying to convince my husband to take a day off to go to the specialist with me.

Before she called I was actually kind of hopeful that I had ovulated, though I was pretty sure I hadn't. She did tell me that it's still possible that I did ovulate...just "not very well".

I read somewhere about ovulation induction. I wonder how much that would cost?? I'd like to give that a shot if it didn't cost me an arm and a leg.

Who knows, right now I'm just shattered. I don't want to have to go to a specialist. I want my body to be normal...I want it to do the things it's supposed to. But it doesn't matter what I want, this is the way it is and I am just going to have to deal with it. Whether I like it or not.

So sorry to hear you are having such a rough day girl. :-( I am praying that you DID ovulate this month and things will begin to take a positive turn soon in this department! :-) *hugs*

I know that things must feel so grim and hopeless... I know the feeling. Some days it seems like simply existing is a painful task. I know you know how great God is...his plans for you are great. As a loving father should, he knows what's best for you and has YOUR GOOD at heart. I pray that your strength would be renewed in him.
Thinking of you!!

I know hearing some of those words are hard...and worrying about the uncertainty even with a specialist is so daunting.

You aren't alone and you are strong!!! I'm excited about those tricks up the sleeve!

I'm on your side with this, I'm just wondering if you are going to have to go to the specialist anyway, is it worth going to see Dr. G on Wednesday and have that charge incurred if you are going to have to then start all over with the specialist? just wondering. I know this has been so very hard for you/Clif. It is sad also because you hear of people not trying to get pregnant and it just "happens". I'll keep praying

Sorry :( If you have to go to the specialist I hope your insurance will cover it. It sucks that stuff costs so much.
