Decisions decisions

We had our next appointment at the fertility clinic this week to talk about my low AMH results. The result was that there is not a lot that can be done. We had thought Clomid might be suggested but the opinion was that as everything else is ‘normal’ – i.e my periods are regular and all other test results are ok (except progesterone) – then it would not be very effective.

The consultant did say they could do further investigations such as looking at my tubes and sperm tests for hubbie but as we were pregnant at the end of January, then he was almost certain that everything would come back normal.

Then there is the option of IVF but with one child already, it would have to be the private route as we already have a child (understandable) and with my low AMH and age, the percentages of it working are pretty shit.

And no talk of solving the miscarriage problem – I’m still waiting for the referral to the new early miscarriage clinic in London as there’s plenty of others in more need than us.

So we have some thinking to do. Carry on trying to conceive naturally, spend loads of money on IVF that will more than likely not work or call it a day and be thankful we managed to pop out one child.

In today’s expectant world of getting what you want, exactly when you want it, sometimes we have to accept that life doesn’t always work that way and that’s ok.
I say, focus on what you have, not what you don’t – we are still the luckiest people in the world to share our lives with our little Herbs.
