A plan

I had my wellness visit yesterday. Needless to say it was very emotional. I absolutely love my regular doctor! I'm not saying that I don't love my specialist, but Tina is the best doctor ever. She actually came in and sat down to talk to me about everything. We literally talked for about 40 minutes before my exam. I don't know of any other doctors that would do that.

She wanted to know how it was going at the fertility clinic. And yes, I started crying. It's been a while since I cried about the whole situation. She thinks that I should go ahead and have my tubes checked. She also said that my insurance should pay for it - should. She recommends not doing any more IUIs and just skipping straight to IVF. Which is what I want to do, it's just a money problem now. So that's the plan. Get my tubes checked and then save for IVF.

Since we are taking a break from the clinic for a little while to save money, she is requesting my records from them. She wants to know what they are doing, etc. She also said that since I have PCOS, she will put me on Metformin. Metformin is used to treat type 2 diabetes (condition in which the body does not use insulin normally and, therefore, cannot control the amount of sugar in the blood). Metformin helps to control the amount of glucose (sugar) in your blood. It decreases the amount of glucose you absorb from your food and the amount of glucose made by your liver. Metformin also increases your body's response to insulin, a natural substance that controls the amount of glucose in the blood.

So at least I have a plan ...
