My doctor told me last cycle that if it didn't work we would go on to IUI's. When we started this infertility journey I wasn't sure I wanted to do IUI's or IVF. I was leaning more towards adoption. But, when I was told the option was an IUI or nothing, the decision suddenly became a lot easier to make. I opted for the IUI. I still won't do IVF. I have some moral concerns about IVF that makes me uncomfortable with it. I won't say that it's wrong, but I'm not going to do it. Well, my doctor decided to have us do one more clomid/natural cycle and then we will revisit the IUI topic. Ok, whatever you think. I've also put away the temperature chart. I'm not going to graph anything this cycle. I think it will really help with the stress of doing this.
Here are a few funny conversations I had today with WandBoy and Obi-Wan Kenobe (my doctor).
Dialogue between WandBoy and I:
Me: "I tried to talk my hubby into coming with me today."
WandBoy: "What was his lame excuse for not coming?"
Me: "He doesn't like you."
WandBoy: "What?" (look of shock and then laughs) "I have another fertility patient whose husband likes to hunt. I keep my blinds closed so I don't get sniped."
Dialogue between Obi-Wan Kenobe and I:
Obi-Wan: (walks in, sits down and starts to log into the computer) "So what are we doing today?"
Me: (Blank look) "I thought you were supposed to tell me that."
Obi-Wan: "Oh yeah, I guess that's why you pay me the big bucks."
Me: "By the way, how do you like the new car I'm buying for you?"
Obi-Wan: "I haven't picked one out yet. I was waiting to see how long it would take to get you pregnant."
Me: (thinking) yeah....he wants to wait until I have to do IVF so he can splurge for the Bentley.
Later during the consult:
Obi-Wan: "So I'm going to give you one more chance with clomid and home intercourse."
Me: "I feel like I'm being reprimanded. I only get one more chance."
Obi-Wan: "We'll blame it all on your husband. And then we will go to something else. By something else I mean intrauterine insemination."
Me: "Yeah, we talked about this. Like a cow."
Obi-Wan: (blank look for a few seconds and then laughter) "I wouldn't look at it like that. But, agriculture has paved the way for a lot of the things we do today."
Me: (nodding) "yea.....that's great......I guess....."
