So I met with an RE today. He seemed pretty nice. I took all of the lab reports thinking that would be all he needed but he said there were 3 (I think) other blood clotting disorders that he would test for (not sure why that was not tested already...kinda frustrating). Then he recommended genetic testing and I said we already met with a genetic counselor and were waiting to hear from the insurance. He said, oh, do it through us and it will be much less expensive and the nurse also said that with the insurance we have there will be no problem. Hopefully they know what they are talking about and we dont get a surprise bill!! But this is good because I was up in the air about the genetic testing--mainly due to cost and they just went ahead and did it today, so in a week or so we should know if there is a genteic issue or a blood clotting issue. He also wants to schedule a 3-d ultrasound of my uterus and an HSG. I finally feel like someone is taking the situation more seriously--even though I do like my regular doctor and trust them..I just feel like I might get some answers now...he is willing to do more tests. The only drawback is he wants us to stop TTC until all these tests are complete (which its too late this month...oops!) but we will have to take next month off if I'm not pregnant this month. That is the hardest part...you want it so bad but you have to prevent it. Oh well, its just a month.

I'm so happy that you found someone to take this more seriously. I hope between the blood clotting tests, genetic tests, and the scan you can get some answers! I know it is torture to have to take a break from ttc, but maybe just think of it as possibly preventing another loss. This way when you do start ttc again, you will (hopefully) know exactly what is going on and you can take measures to give your lo a better chance. I'm very excited for you to get this whole thing figured out!

I tried to reply yesterday but it wouldn't work...
I am so glad you have found a good doctor, and that he is being so thorough with your tests. That is such wonderful news that the genetic testing can be done and that insurance will cover it!!
I am sorry you have to stop TTC for a while. When you have waited so long, waiting is the last thing you want to do. Hopefully you will get some answers and the waiting will all be worth it!

I think this is a great step in the right direction. It sounds like this doctor is really going to get to the bottom of what is going on. I hope it is something minor and he will be able to get you on your way to a successful pregnancy very soon.
