One year ago today, we went in for our first consult with Dr. RE.
The initial meeting went well. He thought we were a pretty easy case and told us as much. Afterall, I was 29, had gotten pregnant with little intervention before, responded to Clomid well, and didn't have any obvious problems...he seemed extremely confidant that I would be pregnant in less than three months...
So for fun, I went through our insurance records to see what we did in this past year. (The scary party is as high as these numbers are...I even took a 3 month break.)
36 Blood draws (most of these took 2-3 sticks to find the vein)
17 regular vaginal ultrasounds
2 saline ultrasounds
7 IUIs (over 4 cycles)
2 doses of methotrexate
1 IVF retrieval
1 IVF transfer
1 lap surgery
5 Dr. Consults (not counting times we were in the office for other reasons)
1 ectopic pregnancy
I wonder what the next year will hold...
