I am a 30 year old Christian, wife and stay-at-home mother. My husband, Russell, and I were married in 2004 and we welcomed our daughter, Chloe Jo, in 2009. My days are filled with laundry, crafting, cleaning, My Little Pony and family time. Life hasn't turned out exactly how I had pictured it, but I wouldn't change it for anything. Grab a coffee, sit down and enjoy my very blessed life.

I have been told on more than one occasion lately that my doctor is not aggressive enough and that I need to move on to another doctor. I was really confused earlier today because I had just had a really good, informative appointment. I proceeded to post about it on the message boards on WebMD and got this negative feedback. So I called Russ and asked him what he thought. He agreed with the girls on WebMD. I was really upset about that for a while. Then I got to thinking. I am the one seeing my doctor. I am the one getting treatment. This is my decision. I like the way he is treating me. I like the fact that our personalities coincide so that I can actually enjoy our office visits during a time that is horribly emotional. I like the fact that he encourages me to research my options and to question him and the protocol. I believe he is aggressive. He started me right off on clomid after a bunch of questions and an ultrasound. He ordered an HSG after the first round of clomid didn't work. He has me do trigger shots to take all the guesswork out of the cycle. So, he wanted to do one more clomid/natural cycle. So what? I didn't mind. I'm glad he's thinking about me and what my body can do instead of his pocketbook. What is more aggressive? Ordering a laparoscopy before ever giving me the chance at clomid? Recommending IVF before trying anything else? I've been seeing him for four months. That's it. And I am happy.
