I phoned my OB/GYN and explained my concerns that things don't seem to be happening the way they did back in '06. She referred me to a specialist; a reproductive endocrinologist. I found another practice to seek out a second opinion should that be necessary. My body just isn't kicking into gear on these meds the way it did way back when and I am frustrated. Without knowing what is happening internally, I am feeling incapable of persuing this. I am also pretty sick of taking the meds because the side effects are oh so lovely. Steve continues to be a positive support in all of this and is willing to do whatever I need him to do to get through this. A topic of recent conversation was that we wish we had started thinking about this sooner, but in retrospect we really were not ready before. Just like with everything else, once you make up your mind to move forward you want it to happen now now now. We've got big girl room bedding and furniture to purchase, a nursery to FINALLY finish painting, plans for the relocation of the laptop. We've also got a little girl who just the other day told me that she has a baby sister. I so wish I could have looked at her and told her that she did. Watching her interact so sweetly with Baby Tommy and talking with her non-stop about "Ann's house" and "Ann's baby" has really shown me that our Caroline would be an amazing big sister. The appointment is in a few weeks. I am hopeful that at that time I will have some answers or at least be on the road to finding them.
