Finally

I finally broke down and made an OBGYN appointment. I want to get my FSH levels tested and see what they are. I've tried to reduce the amount of inflammation in my body per my Rheumatologist. He suggested - 5 teabags a day of decaffinated Green Tea, Fish Oil capsules, and continue my iron and Vitamin D. He said if my arthritis symptoms and Sjogren's symptoms become worse that he would start me on Plaquenil. And that would mean no pregnancy. I also have been using this free application for my Iphone that helps you calculate your "fertile" days (if I have any, ha ha), your cycle data, and your intercourse numbers. TMI, but we need to have more intercourse. P has been traveling so much lately, and I've been so tired, that we need to step it up a notch (I'm sure he doesn't mind). I don't think I could get him to do anymore infertility treatments; certainly not IVF, maybe a cycle of Clomid (useless in the past- but at least it is something).

I'll keep you updated. Mrs. Spock has a fabulous post about infertility today.
