The Clock Strikes 44

I turned 44 today and to commemorate the day, I emailed Dr. Pompy to see if he would let me cycle with his clinic again. I also emailed for an appointment with a new doctor, whom I will refer to as The Italian for lack of a better imagination on my part - The Italian has an office close to me but his clinic is way over on the east side of my locale which makes for a stressful retrieval if nothing else. Nothing like driving in early morning rush hour traffic with your ovaries about to explode. Oh yeahhh.

This latter doc was recommended to me by my OB/GYN over a year ago when I told her that Dr. Moustache fired us. I just checked his success rates at my age. THEY SUCK! Holy shit. I have a good mind to write to Dr. Moustache and beg for another try as he did get the best numbers for me. I hate grovelling, though, and fear that he'd just kick me and my crappy uterus to the curb. It's either that or I should hop a plane for the clinic in the Rockies where they still knock women up my age with success rates in the 30-something percentages.

I'm on CD5 and can you believe that I totally forgot (FORGOT!?) to test my CD3 FSH. Jesus christ I've been off the merry-g0-round long enough that I've just lost my mind about most things infertility.

Stay tuned as the worm begins to turn yet again.
