That Couple

This morning we took another step in our long arduous journey.

We also discovered that Adam and I are "That Couple". The couple that everyone at our clinic knows about but have never met. That unnamed mysterious couple. I'd like to think that Adam and I are a little like secret spies, sneaking around the clinic making our mark but slipping away before anyone sees or hears us. I wonder what our spy names would be? Good thing the internets are all knowing. I kid you not...there's a site for that.

My International Spy Name is Lady Supernova.
Code Name: The Pharmacist
Resides in: Venice
Why You're a Good Spy: You're a good lover

Adam's International Spy Name is Shock Deathbird.
Code Name: The Butcher
Resides in: Rome
Why You're a Good Spy: You are a master at disguise

For the record - I think I'd make a terrible spy but a girl can dream.

We met with another Dr. at our fertility clinic and instantly fell in love with her. Dr. K. was witty, funny and took the time to go over everything and answered each and every question that we threw at her (and there were a lot). As we sat down and she started to go through our file she stumbled upon the report on our lost embryos...and sat up a little straighter. "Oh, guys are That Couple". Apparently we're famous. Our case was a first for almost everyone there and we've come up in just about every meeting since then and likely will for some time.  It will be used as a good teaching/learning tool so I guess there is a little good that came from our situation. I must stress that Dr. K. then told us how sorry she and the entire staff were for us...that was nice.  

What are our next steps? Well...we are going to stay the course and re-test at Day 3 and Day 5 with my next two cycles. I am also booked in for surgery on November 1st to take a good look at my tubes and to see if we can repair them. Dr. K's gave us 80-85% chance that this will be a success but if I've learned anything over the last year plus...I've learned that we never, never fall on the good side of the numbers but I will do my best to stay positive. We have a new plan and having any kind of a plan at all feels pretty good.

  1. Dr. K is a rockstar.... there's a reason she's the one talking on the radio commercials lol! Glad to hear that she had some good news for you. From dealing with her I found her to be quite realistic and not overly optimistic when it wasn't warranted so I'm hoping her statistics sway in your favour!

  2. I'm totally going to look for a website now to find out my spy name. :D

    And YAY for a new plan! *hugs*

  3. I just wanted to let you know that I am thinking of you. Dr. K was my doctor too. I found her to be knowledgeable, realistic, compassionate and competent. When my first cycle didn't work, she chose a different protocol that did. Hope you get the good luck you so deserve.
