Hope and Change

Well as I said a few blogs ago ( I know, I know it has been a very long while since I last blogged) but Handsome and I have decided to try a new fertility clinic.  We had a consultation appointment at a clinic that had been recommended to us call Fertility Treatment Center. We spoke to Dr. Behera who I chose because she is a woman and she specializes in recurrent miscarriage.  One thing that both Handsome and I appreciated about her is that she took her time to ask lots of questions and really try and understand our case.  She said it is like a puzzle and the more pieces she has the better she can order treatment.  As for being a woman you may remember my um outrage upset that when I was having the cramps from hell ( I mean Tylenol with codeine barely helped!) he told me that most cramps were centrally located - he knows this from his vast PERSONAL experience with cramps!!! I've had cramps now for over 20 years - I think I know how they go and what is normal for ME and what is not.

Even Handsome liked her, he felt that she wasn't "blowing smoke up our asses and would give us real information".  I think we both felt more hopeful after talking to her.  I don't want to diss ARMS but we had felt as though we were getting the run around from them for a while.  I was also concerned about some information I didn't feel we were getting like the quality of our embryos.  Even Dr. Behera seemed shocked at some of the things that hadn't been communicated to us by ARMS.  Dr. Behera also seems more open to alternative treatments such as acupuncture and my gluten free diet.

Well I have tons more to tell you guys but will do so in a later post.  ttyl
