Huge decisions

This past week I made a HUGE decision about where to go with our TTC journey. After last cycle's m/c my doctor recommended that DH and I go to an RE (infertility specialist) and start further treatment with her. She mentions that Clomid would be a good place to start.

I said that sounded great and then went home and really started researching our options. They did not make me happy. I am a very "Green" person. I reduced the amount of chemicals I have in my home, I always try to use homeopathic remedies before getting prescriptions, and all of this IF treatment in general made me feel very nervous. But I really, really, really want a baby and I'm willing to do pretty much anything!

Then a few days ago I learned that there is a new birth center opening up in my town. I decided to contact them to see if I can start doing Well-Woman care there (I'm due for a Pap, fun times!) and they invited me over to meet them and speak with them about that. I showed up and this place was FANTASTIC! I really got a good vibe from it.

As we chatted more they mentioned that there are lots of fertility options out there for women who are looking to try a more natural route to having a baby and dealing with IF issues. After leaving the center I made the decision to NOT go to the RE appointment and instead will be switching completely to the center and midwife care. I figure it's worth a shot and something I am way more comfortable with. I figured if I still don't get pregnant in 6 months or so I can always just go back to the RE and explore my other options. But for now I am so happy that I have found a solution that I am more comfortable with and am SO excited for!

So hopefully I have more updates in the future as we start exploring these options. Again, I'm sorry I've been such a bad 'saur, I just rarely have anything to talk about since we haven't been able to conceive yet.

  1. Good luck with your new birthing center. I went to a RE to get initial testing and it wasn't terrible. It was nice to know what we were dealing with. I hope you get the answers you are looking for.
