First RE appt. down...many more to go

I had my first Reproductive Endocronology appt. today and I think it went really well. I love my new Dr. he explained things to Pace and I very well and answered all of our questions. He did a vaginal u/s and said that my ovaries and uterus look great and that he would like to run some more tests to help him identify exactly what it is that we are working with.
He seemed very positive and told me that it is not a question of if...but when we get pg which was a huge relief. Pace will go in for a SA to rule out any MF and I will go in for an HSG test to determine if I have any blockage of the falopian tubes. The only problem is that neither of these are covered by insurance so I am going to have to pay for those out of pocket which is going to be like $600. Let the money spending begin!!!
I have to do some additional blood work and other tests and then we will be ready to finish up the diagnosis stage and move on to the treatment stage. For once I actually have a little bit of hope that someday soon I will be able to carry Pace's child. I can't tell you how excited that makes me.
Thank you all for being understanding and keeping up with this maize Pace and I are in. We would really appreciate your thoughts and prayers that the upcoming tests are "good news"

I'm glad to hear that you and pace had some encouraging news. Try to stay positive!! It sounds like the doctor you are going to now knows what he is talking about and will help you two become pg. Good luck!
