Falling out of love with...

...Dr Nora.

I had another Dr Nora appt last night.  I do not think it was very productive.  It is quite expensive to go there for such appointments.

A lot of the time was spent lecturing me about Napro.  Yes, I know, it is better, great, more natural - but what my husband and I have decided it to do another IUI in January.  So nagging at me just is frustrating.  I calmly said many times, that No, I am not going to see another doc before then.  This is what we have decided is right for us next.  I now look back and realized how much money I paid to just go around in a circle with her about this for part of the appointment.

For really, every new doc/avenue of discovery is stressful and takes up lots of time.  I do not want to be monitored before January.  Dr Nora also suggested she refer me to a doc in Farawaysville - no way!  Maybe in another year Farawaysville would be on the table, but for right now, it is out of the question.  No way am I traveling over an hour away (several suburbs out of town) for another doc.

And it isn't just up to me.  DH is not wanting to go to another doc either.  At this point I would really have to drag him.  Maybe next year if things are still not working?  After the lap?  But for now it isn't what is best for us.

For I have this feeling, however much it may be unfounded, that our IUI is going to Work.  And that is what I'm going with for now.  I do not think this cycle is going to work, nor do I think the next one will.  My money (literally!  hah!) is on the January IUI.  Prayer buddy - please pray for that one!  (Oh no!  Am I jinxing it now by such talk?!)

Dr Nora and I also discussed my bad skin, since I think it is my body telling me something I'd like to decode, and fix.  She said she'd have to go away and think about it - which is fine, but that's what she said last time, and the time before.  Then she started saying how it was probably because I had high progesterone in my follicular phase, but I do not - and I have already emailed her that cycle of monitoring (which she lost, and asked me to resend). 

Ugh.  As I become less baby-crazy than I was, I have less tolerance for all this.


  1. What a frustrating appointment. Why can't all of this be easier for us?? I hope you get some answers soon (and a BFP!)

  2. I was wondering when this was going to happen. I was hoping that she would've been more tolerant to your choices.

    I can appreciate your baby-craziness. I totally get it. I so do.

    Looking forward to seeing you on Saturday!

  3. It is frustrating to see any kind of doctor. You have to do what is best for the both of you. Good luck.

  4. I hear you on the decreasing tolerance for all the first we are all so desperate and insane over having a baby, we will do anything we are told...eventually, though, when none of that works, we start to think for ourselves and follow our instincts - good for you for doing that!

  5. My experience taught me one thing: you are the only one who can judge what is best for you. Most doctors are not as ethical as one would expect and have their own private agenda.
    I got pregnant by deciding myself when to follow my fertility doctor and when to follow my naturopath doctor (and help from God also). We must all keep in mind that IF is an industry and many ppl make a living out of it.

    Regarding your gut feeling that you will get pregnant. I can totally relate to this. I swear I knew I would get pregnant ... (but of course, there are always many brave men after the war:))

    Looking forward to seeing you in Jan.
