Default Talk About Complicated!!!

Secondary Infertility SUCKS!!!!!!!








Sorry -- rant over !!!

OK -- so, my fertility doc. wants a baseline hormone blood draw and a transvaginal U/S done on CD#3 -- well that happens to be during my vacation to Cape Cod as you know (unless I am already PG, but somehow, my life isn't that smooth, so we won't count on it for this conversation).

Anywho--- I have two choices -- drive back (five hours) with two kids for the testing from vacation 4 days early or try to find a place on the Cape to have this work done.

I found a place -- no easy task!!! and I think I've got my doctor's office onboard to write the scripts and get it approved for out of office work from my insurance....

the insurance/HMO will approve it for me....

What a freakin' nightmare!!! This totally gives me a new level of respect and sympathy for people who have been TTC for a long time and dealing with the clinics which need to test, test, test!!!! UGH! Yes, it's worth it, but what a pain!!!!

Thanks for listening/reading!!!

Crazy! I hope its approved and everything goes well! So you'll need to go into a drs on your vacation! I hope your pg now (so you don't have to) or this next months fiasco works as it will make a great birth/conception/how you were started story! Talk about dedication! Your third child will know for sure how much you wanted them in your family

I had to put off all our pre-IVF tests for a month, because we couldn't squeeze it in. I felt disappointed at the time, but it worked out really well in the end.

I'm glad you got it all sorted, but I'm sorry it was tough to arrange.
