I am thankful for Doctors. Especially Doctor’s who understand the desire for couples, like Hailame and I, who want to have a baby.
Hailame and I went into our Doctor’s appointment a little nervous. Multiple times, before this appointment, we had been told that our options to have a child on our own were little to none, and so we didn’t want to be put down again, after so many times.
Side Story: While waiting to meet with the Doctor, Disney’s Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs was playing, and this led to the debate as to which Disney Princess was which because Hailame was convinced it was Cinderella and the Seven Dwarfs…but the last time he saw a Disney Princess movie, he thought it was Snow White and it was Sleeping Beauty…. I really hope we have all girls so he’ll have no choice but to become an expert on Disney Princesses 🙂
Back to our appointment.
Upon meeting Dr. Foulk, we were immediately put at ease. He approached our situation very confidently, assuring us at the end of this journey, we will have a baby. He was able to tell us the missing pieces to our situation and why we have been failing to have a baby. It was such a relief to get these answers.
Because of my PCOS and a few other health factors for both of us, there will be about a 3 month period that we will have to become “Baby Healthy.”
I’ve been put on Birth Control to help my Ovulation Cycles and to get rid of Ovarian Cysts (that darn PCOS!). I will also be taking a higher dosage of Progesterone to counter out my Testosterone levels (again…that darn PCOS!). It is our hope that at the end of the 3 month period my body will be cycling properly and my Estrogen levels will be where they need to be.
To exhaust all reasons why we aren’t able to get pregnant, I’ll be having my Fallopian Tubes cleaned out… not to excited for this, but I’m willing to do whatever it takes!
We left our appointment with a new drive and focus for our family. We were a little overwhelmed by all the information we had to take in but just the fact that we have a plan to move forward is making all the difference to the opposite of not having any direction on what to do next. We know what needs to be done and we are excited to start this new journey, growing closer as a couple and hopeful for the very best for our future family!
