What To Do Next?

I peed on a stick today. Okay, not really. I peed in a cup today and dipped the stick in. Is there anyone out there that can actually aim perfectly onto that stupid little stick??? Back to the issue at hand, I got a big fat negative. I know, it’s only day 11dpo, maybe day 12dpo AND I didn’t use first morning urine. So, there’s a small chance – a very small chance – that I could be pregnant.

I’m thinking no though, as much as I thought that maybe, just maybe, it would work this month. I did have a couple little symptoms, but now I have this cervix pressure. I had it when I miscarried in November and I had it last cycle 3 days before my period showed up.

Assuming it does show up… I’m not sure what to do next. I still want to keep trying, but not sure how to go about it. Do I try and make it quickly to the doctor as soon as Aunt Flo shows up? This is only hard because I babysit and need my husband to be home to take care of all the other kids while I go and it’s hard for him to get the time off, especially on short notice. The only reason I have to go to the doctor is for her to check my ovaries and make sure they’re happy. When a patient wants more Clomid, they have to have an exam first. I’ve had three rounds of Clomid – got pregnant the first time and miscarried – and then last cycle and this cycle.

Or do we take this next cycle off. No temps, no ovulation tests, no meds. And if I do, will that screw anything up? So, maybe I make an appointment to go to the doctor in a week or two and then I’d have the meds for the cycle after that. Or maybe take the time off until summer when I may not have the kids I babysit for and it would be easier to go to the doctor?

I’m getting very frustrated. And stressed. That isn’t good. My husband is stressed too, stressed at work, stressed over the fire, stressed with me not getting pregnant. Maybe a month off would be good. But, then I think that I’m not a very patient person. I don’t know if I could take a month or two off and not go insane.

My other choice is to go to a specialist. I’m only seeing the OB right now. I didn’t want to go to the specialist because I had four children. I didn’t want to seem greedy. Maybe I should wait and get an appointment with the specialist for the summer.

So, dear readers, what would you do? Keep in mind it’s been 14 months now since we’ve started trying to conceive. It took 9 months to get pregnant and then I miscarried and now it’s been another 5 months. I’ve never had this much trouble getting pregnant. Is it God saying “You have enough!” or “Your body can’t handle another”? Or has something changed? Maybe I can’t get pregnant in Texas? đŸ˜€

    Ok maybe you need to come back to NY to get pregnant. LOL That would so wrk for me.

    I think that maybe you should take some time off but on the other hand how would that wrk medically with everything you have been doing? Make an appt and see what they say.
    That is my advice.
    Love Ya!!!!!
