D took me to the doctor yesterday. Turns out I have a bronchial infection, not just a mere cold. No wonder I have been getting worse instead of better. But I'm on antibiotics now, so things will start improving.
The disadvantage of course, is that it is highly unlikely that we will conceive this month. Queen Naturo told us right at the beginning that if I'm sick then the body, in it's fight to clear itself of bad things, will reject any conception as a foreign body. The doctor also told us the same thing yesterday.
So, this month will be another wipeout.
The positive aspect of this though, is that I will be able to have champagne at our engagement party in two weeks time!! Woohoo!
We did talk to the doctor again about the fact that we still aren't pregnant and I was surprised to discover that my fertility doctor had sent her a letter with a report on us. It was interesting to read. It didn't say anything I didn't already know but it was interesting to read her summary.
I was frustrated to read that she said she had recommended IUI as well as IVF. She might have recommended it, but she certainly didn't offer it because she told me that her clinic does not do IUI. I remember this clearly because I wanted to go down that path first before IVF and might even have been willing to give it a go right there and then. Except they didn't offer it! I was annoyed by that. But nevermind, I would rather go with a different clinic and OB anyway.
Our health care waiting period runs out in 2 months. Then if we still aren't pregnant we can go down that path. The doctor recommended that we start looking around for a good OB now. I think she was pleased that will be going down the private path instead of the public system. While she didn't say it, obviously, I got the feeling she thinks that is a better way to go.
So, it will be on to our friend who is a nurse in the private hospital to ask around and find out who will be the best OB for us to get. She then might be able to ensure that we can get in with him/her.
And we continue moving forward...
