A Plan for Number Two

We had a nice visit with Dr. A on August 22nd. There was no one in the office, it was the end of their day and it was just us, Dr. A and a nurse.We sat and chatted with him about the end of my pregnancy with Grayson, about breastfeeding, about my cycles and how they have been regular {and how they returned around 3 months post-partum. Lucky me, ha!} and that we hadn't had a pregnancy even though we had stopped preventing five months ago.

Dr. A told us that whenever we are ready, we will go straight to what worked last time: Follistim + IUI. I breathed a sigh of relief at that moment. I had been so anxious all day because I didn't know what the plan would be. Once I knew, I was fine. I guess that's my control freak showing her ugly face. He did make a note to start with a lower dose of the Follistim since I responded so well last time, a little too well.

The only testing that we need to repeat is the infectious diseases. They are required every year. And also my TSH and prolactin levels. After that, the next step is to call Dr. A's office on cycle day one when we are ready for a treatment cycle. When that will be is something I have decided to keep between Nick and I this time around. We haven't had many surprises in this journey, so I would like to try and keep a few :)



  1. So happy for you! I have unused meds that we won't be using, if you want them I'd be more than happy to send them to you. Let me know if you want them.

  2. So, so excited! I'm glad the appointment went well, and you can just jump right into things whenever you're ready. Baby dust your way =)

  3. So happy you have a plan!! Wishing you the best of luck!! G is going to be the cutest big brother!!!

  4. Found your blog through another infertility blog friend. I think we have a lot in common, are you with SCCRM??
