Caution: Things May Not Be As They Seem

First off...Gavin is turning 1 tomorrow!  Yippee!! I couldn't help myself and decided to turn it into a week long celebration by giving him a small present each morning.  It is starting with a book and then culminates in a Fisher Price Rock 'n' Roll Trike.  He will never remember this but at least we are having a lot of fun.

As for baby number two, I feel lied too.  The new doc got my hopes up only to receive my bloodwork back which revealed I have low AMH.  My first doc was right after all and I need to use injectables.  I've spent the last week depressed at the thought that while I might still have a chance to have another baby, this will most likely be my last one (If I'm lucky enough to conceive).  I'm torn between asking to do IVF so I can freeze some embies or just to do an IUI.  I'm trying to stay calm but its really hard to do when I don't feel confident in my decision.  No matter which route I take, I am going to have to wait until April to go for my first cycle.  I got the call this morning that the new doctors office forgot to do my FDA bloodwork (testing for std's) which is required when using donor sperm.  The results wont come in for a week, causing me to miss this next cycle.  I hope this isn't a sign of future issues with this new doctor.

For now I am going to focus on some of the tips to improve my AMH that I found on line.  I'm hoping that by changing my diet, it will boost my chances.  Crossing my fingers.

Happy Birthday Gavin!

How low was your AMH? I hope this ends up being a nonissue and you luck you with an easy road to pregnancy!

Gavin's already a year? When did that happen? Happy birthday. Personally, if you are doing injectibles anyway, why not try IVF if you are a candidate? No matter what you decide, good luck as you try for two.

& i'm sorry to hear about low amh but please don't fret! mine was practically nonexistent & with the right RE & IVF protocol i'm sitting over here with twin boys. (girl, get some ubiquinol & think about acupuncture; will be praying for you :-)

Happy Birthday, Gavin! (wow, that was fast!!)

And best of luck with T42. Can't wait to hear how it goes with two little ones, as I'm hoping to have a second at some point.
