Ta da...

Here's a pic of the new hair!
Now my eyes are a little closed and I didn't realize you could see my broken closet door in the background but you get the idea. Before the chop, it just reached the top of my boobs.

We're off to Vidilia for restaurant week. I thought we were going last night and was soooo disappointed when I realized I had the date wrong.

The follow up RE appt went about how I expected. We got (here's another ta da moment) the official "unexplained" diagnosis. But he made sure to mention at least twice that we're definitely infertile (in case I was wondering). Our first step is going to be IUI with 50 mg C.lomid and injectibles. I wanted to jump right to injectibles but he we should see if the C.lomid will work and they'll be less likelihood of me getting cysts since I'm prone to them.

And we (Mr. H and I) decided to start in October so that just in case this first cycle is a success I won't be due the same day my brother is getting married. It was a very hard decision to skip a month, especially knowing that there are no guarantees and that anything can happen with a pregnancy. But it feels right for both of us. I'm hoping that I can lose some of the weight I've gained in the last 6 months and that this little break will help my mental health too.


Hope everyone has a good weekend! I have to go to an all day bachlorette party tomorrow. I was really hoping to be pregnant for this so I could bail out towards the end of the night. Wish me luck!!

Love the hair cut...

I'm glad you stopped over to visit my blog and seeing that you are fairly new to the infertility diagnosis, I am hoping you are not in the traces for long.

Hang in there. Please feel free to add me to your blog roll. I'd love to see you visit me again.

Okay, for real comment now:

Congrats on the plan, though I know how not fun it is to have that "unexplained" diagnosis.

One piece of assvice - if there is something that you feel strongly about in treatment, don't be afraid to push for it with your RE. A good one will listen to you and either agree or explain why s/he wouldn't advise it.
