I would push to be seen earlier. Did you tell the receptionist about your history? I bet if you call back and inform them of your prior loss and ask to at least come in for lab work they will get you an appt. Good luck and CONGRATS!!

I personally would just ask to have your levels and progesterone checked. That is what really matters... IMO. If those number are okay there isn't much a DR's apt is going to do....so I would just keep the apt. you have if they can honor your request for the blood tests.


Sticky to you! Congrats!!!

I completely agree with the other ladies. I hope they let you come in early for labs. KUP on how you are doing. the only thing I would add is to make sure you are taking your prenatals right away - don't wait for you appt on the 19th.

Just an update...
Went to the dr this morning and took a test...
BFP...Still have to wait until the 20th now to see the
nurse and doctor. They told me not to worry that
everything looks good. I will still worry though, can't
help it. I am excited and so is DH, just trying not to get too
excited yet. my m/c in 2008 happened at about 7 weeks. I
will feel better when we make it past that point.

They didn't do any blood work yet, I guess I will have to wait until the 20th.
Maybe the last preg wasn't ment to be, we werent really ready for another baby
then but now we are.
Will keep you posted
You all are great and help alot to keep thinking positive
