Working it Out

No, I didn't say I was working out, oh please! I said that I am working it out, meaning I am working out the next steps (still). Here I thought making the decision about what treatment to pursue would be the hard part but au contraire, the decision to do IUI has been made it's finding a doctor to provide IVIg or intralipids that is proving to the be the problem.

After playing phone tag all week with the soon to be closing fertility clinic I finally talked to the nurse on Friday. I explained that I wanted to do IUI next cycle and also do IVIg and not wait to do IVIg after I find out I'm pregnant. She said she'd talk it over with the doctor and get back to me.

Not hearing back from her Friday and not being too hopeful of hearing back from her today, I emailed the Madison RE I saw back in April to ask her again if she'd be willing to treat the natural killer cell problem. Despite her saying prior that she's be willing to do that her new response is that she's only willing to treat the issue with steroids and not with IVIg or intralipids. She suggested I see a doctor in Chicago.

I honestly don't think I can get any more frustrated. How many more months am I going to have to waste just trying to find a doctor?
