Does anyone else go out of their mind trying to plan what the doc will say before app?

Hi there,

Im driving myself mental trying to prepare for what the con will tell me on Wed? does anyone else spend hours and hours thinking about what will be said and how to cope with all the possible outcomes?

I have had 8 cycles of clomid - first 6 cycles were 50mg and had 2 cycles where no ovulations and 2 times very heavy period at day 20 + 21.
Then had a break then cycle 7 at 50mgs was no ovulation and cycle 8 at 100mgs no ovulation.

Just driving me mental trying to think what the con will say next - think im just trying to prepare emotionally to be told that there is no other drug treatment, but want to know if other people get as wound up - and if you know a good way to relax?

No magic tricks I'm afraid but the following helped me:

Preparing my list of questions in advance and having them written down so I didn't forget anything.
Getting my DH on board to take notes/remember everything that was said in case I forgot
Trying hard not to predict the outcome or what they might say (easier said than done)
Normal relaxation things such as doing things to take your mind off it like going to the cinema or immersing yourself in a trashy book

I hope it all goes ok.

Thanks - i will trying writing a list of all my questions, really struggling to stay focused on anything (stared out of the window at work most of the day).

just at the stage when we want answers to so many things and am afraid of being told 'its just one of those things'

Hello
I just wanted to say that I basically wasted years by not asking questions and knocking on doors. I have been TTC for 6 years. I am starting my IVF tomorrow and basically 2 years ago I went to see my consultant at the local hospital and he scratched his head and said he didnt know what he could do for me. I think that something inside me just clicked, basically my Husband broke down crying and was totally devestated. So I became really pro-active. I found a new consultant in London who is a cancer fertility sparing specialist, I have had another operation, he has referred me to the Lister and I am starting my D/R. For years I was afraid that I was going to be told there is nothing they can do, so I basically went to all my hospital appointments and just sat in silence. It wasnt fair on my wonderful hubby and it wasnt fair on me. Now I am the complete opposite but what happens now is going to affect the rest of my life so I go in with lists, I send emails, I do research and I dont care what they think! Ask lots of questions!
