As some of you may know, I've been having a struggle trying to find a doctor. I'd like to get started on testing etc., (we're on cycle #8) but I was hitting a wall because I had no doctor.

BUT! I've come up with a good solution!

I heard about this Fertility Clinic that's in my area, but you have to have a referral from your doctor to get an appointment there. So I went into a walk-in clinic to beg the on-call doctor to give me one. And he did! So I'm booked in for March 28th at the Fertility Clinic. I also went to another walk-in clinic to get a requisition for blood work, so I went today and got CD 3 bloodwork taken. I wanted to get my requisition for 7 DPO blood work as well, but the doctor didn't give that to me, so I'm going to go to yet another walk-in clinic. Ha ha. So I'll have some basic blood work done before my visit on March 28th.

I'm excited!!! I was cranky about starting another cycle but now I'm feeling good about having a plan. I also got Evening Primrose Oil which I'm going to start tonight, and I've been religious about my Maca Root.

Oh, AND, DH is going in for a SA on March 9th! YAY!

Anyways, I just wanted to share

~thanks to Jaidynsmum for my perfect siggy!~

Thanks so much ladies!

Michelle - I hope you don't have to wait much longer - did they give you an estimation on how long it might be?
