Went to the Ob/Gyn here in Nebraska yesterday. We talked about things and he agreed with my other Ob/Gyn that a slew of genetic testing was probably not worth the money. They already checked all of the more common things and that was all normal, so for now, no reproductive endocrinologist, which I am happy with.

I'm going in next week for something called an SIS I think. It's basically a 3-D ultrasound of my uterus to make sure that after the septum was removed I didn't develop any adhesions or anything like that. Then he had me start taking a baby aspirin every day, and he gave me a prescription for progesterone to start taking the day I find out I'm pregnant again. The aspirin and the progesterone are sort of voo-doo. Some people swear by it, there is little in the literature to support it, but there is very little in the way of side effects for either one of them, and some women have success after starting them.

So we're back to trying. And I think I'm ready. I don't get so upset or angry about it anymore. Another of my good friends told us she was pregnant recently, and I was able to feel happy for her. Another just had a beautiful baby girl, and I was really happy for her too. Sireesha, who just had the baby, had some issues with infertility herself. She and her husband had tried to get pregnant for over two years before they finally figured out what was wrong.

I hope that it is in the cards for us to be parents. I think that if we have another miscarriage we will probably start to look into adoption though. At least that's what we think right now. We go back and forth. In some ways we both feel that if we can't have kids of our own, maybe we just won't have kids. But we'll cross that bridge when we come to it. One crisis at a time:)

Just saw this post. I will of course be praying. I am so happy you are trying again. You sound a little less stressed that you have in the past which I think is good. I love you Kristen, I know you will make a good momma no matter if you have your own children or adopt.
