Waiting for the Big #13

I saw my RE in his offices last week.  Usually after a failed cycle he’ll phone to talk about ‘the plan’ for the next cycle (not much of a plan; he never changes anything).  When stim cycle #11 produced no embryos, he phoned me from his car to tell me.  I could barely hear him, and he was just being chatty about the fat I’d waste more time, more money, more stress, and had no chance of a child.  So when stim cycle #12 produced yet another BFN I didn’t want a phone call from his car.  I had questions and wanted them answered.

So lucky me. last week I saw him in his offices.  And asked my questions.  I received answers to some.  For example, after the miscarriage and before stim cycle #11 I had all sorts of blood tests done.  And how did I hear about the results to them?  ‘The boys’ (My husband and the RE) chatted about them briefly while I was getting dressed after a scan.  So all I got was my husband’s summary, which was ‘there wasn’t anything’.  Sorry – I’d still like to hear about it myself.  So apparently I’m heterozygos for MTHFR.  Still doesn’t tell me much, but at least now I know.  Most other questions the RE talked around.  Do you know how much I’d like a straight answer from him just once?!

Anyway, so now I’m waiting for AF so I can start injections on Day 2.  This will be my 13th stim cycle.  It will be an antagonist cycle.  And I’m sure it will all come to nothing.

    This guy seems like a jerk. You deserve someone who will listen to you, and who will offer you answers when there are some, and comfort when there aren’t.

    I’m thinking about you, wishing I could send you strawberry muffins. (I think by the time they get there, they’d be stale.)

    Well, that sounds frustrating. Is there any chance you could find another doctor? I hope things can turn around, and this doctor has some better ideas.

    Oh sweetie, how annoying. Why do they get to chat about it when *you’re* the one who really wants to know. I hope he suggests some course of action for the MTHFR. Ugh, why won’t he just go into detail and tell you some more information. I feel your pain on this one. Don’t doctors just think they know everything??
    Take care
