As many of you know, my husband and I have been trying to conceive for several months. Even though we had problems starting a family in the beginning, after we’d worked through those hurdles we have never had an issue. In fact, its been quite the opposite. My second daughter was the result of one night of pleasure during which my husband forgot the condom. We thought–like other couples–since it was just the “one” time we would be OK…well, we are OK, and we also have another beautiful little girl to show for it.
Our third pregnancy was conceived while I was still on birth control, trying to prevent. Needless to say, I never expected to have problems getting pregnant. Having problems I am,
however. My doctor seems unconcerned. Once checking to make sure I was with the same man (my response of “of course!” got me a strange look) and checking to make sure I’m ovulating (I am) he told me to simply give it more time. I have to admit that my $40 copay felt a bit wasted that day.
After two more months have come and gone without those precious pink lines, I am ready to move on. I am changing doctors. Now, maybe this is the right move, and maybe not, but
I am tired of sitting by and doing nothing. I want to take charge and see the results I long for. I am thinking that my doctor isn’t going tohelp me get there, unfortunately. And that’s fine–some doctors are more specialized in fertility than others. At this point, I think that I am doing everything I can–I am charting my fertility, I am taking prenatal vitamins and having scheduled sex. Now I need someone who can help me go the extra mile, and can hopefully help us get pregnant with the final piece to our family puzzle.
