Cycle Updates and More

It's been a while since I blogged. Each time I thought of writing something, I didn't have anything interesting going on. This morning, a blogger sent me a message on Facebook and I knew it was time to update this blog.

This is my second cycle on Femara and post-peak HCG shots and am on P+14. I tested. I am not pregnant! :)

The repeat labwork for my Thyroid and Hashimotos came back normal. Armour seems to be working. So I will be continuing the same dose. Unfortunately, my fasting insulin levels were high. It was 27 when it should have been less than 12. My local NaPro Dr. has put me on Metformin. I am currently on 1000mg and I am doing well. No side effects.

Yesterday, I received the reply from PPVI. It was from Dr. K.r.i.s.t.i.n.a P.a.k.iz on behalf of Dr. H. It's been almost 2 months since I mailed them and I completely forgot about it. Perhaps yesterday's reply was a special message from God to go ahead with PPVI.

I also have an appt with Dr. K.w.a.k-K.i.m for the first week of June. My insurance year begins every July. So it would be better to postpone all appts for the next insurance year. It's so difficult to get an appt with Dr. Ki.m. One part of me wants to go but I know it would be better to wait until July. I am not thinking about the monetary aspect. That is the last thing in my head. I know I will have to pay around 5k for Dr. Kim since my insurance is highly unlikely to cover anything.

Two different paths and we have no clue which one to pursue! We have been praying every single day to show us the path. I secretly hoped that I would be pregnant this cycle and I wouldn't have to see any more specialists and make such difficult decisions.

And this weekend, we will be celebrating our 4th Wedding Anniversary. We are going to Niagara. I hope AF arrives early. I don't want my weekend to be drowned in sorrow. I have been praying for all of you. I am having baby fever after seeing all the cute pics of blogger babies! One day Lord willingly, I will have some good baby pics to share with you all.
