Getting in to see specialists can be a long and frustrating wait, but it's worth it! And you never know, it could be much sooner. Your doctor should call you when they have made an appointment with the specialist and then at least you can have a date to look forward to. In the meantime, you guys should keep trying Smile Babies are usually conceived when least expected.

Keep us posted!

Thanks Lindsay!

Hopefully were lucky and get to go up to Calgary soon, we're not so busy in the winter so it would work perfectly for us while we're not so tied to the farm with calving, seeding, baling, spraying, combining, etc. during the summer... but if that happens then I guess that's what happens Smile

Just had a wonderful relaxing weekend in the mountains for our first anniversary! The first time I got to see the Rockies. We spent two nights a bed and breakfast in radium and swam at the hot springs (I've been avoiding hot tubs/baths for so long I thoroughly enjoyed getting to relax and let go for the weekend, although when we sat in the actual hot tub I felt so awkward about it and looked at my husband and thought oh no!)

I just wanted to vent a little about the things DH has been saying lately, as they kinda kill the mood. For a couple weeks after the SA results he would say (right before BD) " it's not like I can make anything happen"... I didn't know what to say other than it was alright and we'll just have to get a little extra help and that we have nothing to worry about anymore. It seemed like we were back to normal (like before we started ttc). While were away on the weekend he said (during sex) "wouldn't it be awesome if you came back home pregnant" I'm not really sure why but this made me upset because I right away thought ya right, it's not like I can make anything happen!

Oh well, hopefully we'll get a call from the clinic with an appointment date soon. My friend who has a surrogate is having their baby soon (due in 2 days) and I will have a little baby to go visit.

Long time no see...

It's been a while since I posted last. I've been feeling like all "trying" has been on hold as were still waiting for our clinic in Calgary to call, and My last cycle was 128 days! AF started yesterday so I am a little excited and dissappointed... I know we would BD'd at the appropriate time (I was working a hunch as I had extremely sensitive and sore breasts and cramps). I probably did a pregnancy test every 2 weeks from CD 35 last one on CD 127 when I figured I should be able to tell if I was right on my hunch... BFN.

I went to my dr on CD 128 to get results from my blood test from December and she checked with the fertility clinic to make sure we are on the waiting list and we are on the list for the next round of calls they make... So that's exciting I guess, just a couple more months of waiting for them to call. Maybe my cycle will regularise by then.

We have made great changes to our lifestyle with diet and exercise... We're even thinking about getting the fertilaide set but unsure it would help me given my long crazy cycles.

Hope everyone is doing well and had a great holiday season!

I feel you on those long cycles. My last one was 91 days long Sad I am taking an herb called vitex (chaste berry) to *hopefully* help shorten then and straighten out my hormones. I hope you get some answers soon!

I'm going to try the fertili-tea, I just ordered it yesterday so it should be here in a couple weeks. It has chaste berry and red raspberry and other herbs that are supposed to help regulate cycles and promote fertility. I'm really hoping that this is a sign that our BFP is going to happen this year!

Yay!!! We got a call from the fertility clinic in Calgary today!!! We have an appointment in March for an information session and semen analysis for DH and an ultrasound for me, then we get to see a dr to discuss our options...

Now I'm nervous! I've been thinking about it all day... It seems like a very big decision to go through the fertility clinic. There are so many what ifs running through my head. I know I want a baby but to go through all the testing and trials and craziness that I've read about... it seems so scary. Thank goodness I have 2 months until we go, so hopefully by then I'll be nice and calm and ready for whatever the outcome is Smile

Yikes!
So I'm out with my friend for our Tuesday coffee date and I told her that we went to Calgary last weekend (to visit family) and she got excited and was like oh you got the call? And you've gone already? How was it???!!! I'm like oh no no we didn't go for that... And she's like oh you still haven't heard anything? So I just didn't really answer and told her about our visit with the family (who we will be staying with whole we go for our appointments). Is it weird that now I feel like we're getting closer and now I want everything to be a surprise for our friends and family, even though I did talk to a few of them before we got the call for Calgary? I have always wanted to see the expression of surprise on peoples faces when we tell them our big secret!!!
