I really will need to come up with a better title. Remind me to do that later. LOL.

So, quick bit about me in case some of you don't know me

My name is Michelle and DH (David) and I are both 33. We were TTC for 20 months. After the 12 month mark we were referred to the fertility clinic here. I was put on Clomid and with the second round, we got our BFP earlier this week!!

So that's a bit about me.. I'll post more later..but my GPs office opens in 10 mins and I need to call to make an appointment since the fertility clinic has passed me back off to them

I hope so too!!

I wasn't planning on starting a grads journal so quickly, but I was asking a question in my other one and realized that it's just not the right place to be asking, so I knew I had to start this..if only to pick everyone's brain about things!

Well, dr appointment is set for tomorrow, but my boss is on vacation and if I say anything to her counterpart over in the east, i KNOW she'll tell me I can't go. So I'm not sure what to do there.... LOL. I know if my boss was here, she'd tell me to go and who cares because it's NOT busy.

Anywho.. the appointment is just to go pee on a stick..because you know.. I haven't done that enough..hahahaha.

The full workup will be done in the next week or two (we'll probably set that appointment tomorrow).

Thanks Jacklyn

Update on the dr situation.. I emailed my boss's boss and he approved the appointment, so YAY!!!

Okay, so symptoms of the day...
- increased appetite has GONE the way of the dodo. I'm actually not hungry today. Yesterday I spent most of the day famished. Today, not so much.
- Still tons of gas... LOL. Awesome.
- Nervous tummy feeling. Probably because I'm still nervous about everything
- Still kind of feel like AF is around corner, but that feeling is slowly retreating!!
- Tummy is still a little tender, so getting up and sitting down still is pretty uncomfortable - is this normal? Same with moving around in bed (I'm a restless sleeper). It's not really cramps, not really physical pain..something kind of in the middle I guess.

Anywho.. it's NOT good that work is so slow right now, gives me far too much time to obsess over every little thing.

So happy to see this, Michelle! I've obviously been slacking in stalking the TTC #1 main board. Congratulations on your BFP! I'll be stalking your journal.

YAY!!! I get to keep my doctor until I'm 30 weeks

SHe does a shared practice with the OBs that work in the hospital close by and so she basically gets to "keep me" until I'm 30 weeks and then transfer into the OBs care..so that makes me happy since I love my dr and have been going to her for 20 years!!

Also, I get to book an ultrasound for in 2 weeks!!!

No betas though!!!

I'm go glad you get to keep your doctor! That makes everything so much easier, especially since you've been there for so long!

Don't worry, these next 2 weeks will totally crawl.

Yeah, unfortunately the two weeks will crawl, so I hope you have stuff planned to keep you busy!

That's great you'll get to keep your doctor! That stinks about no betas but it is pretty standard not to do them.

Okay, So. I'm confused as to what to do.

I was happy excited.. I got my first ultrasound booked for Sept 20..yay! Then I came into work and found...that my coworker took this day off. Now, I'm the only one that works from 3:30-4:30, and the appt is at 3:30..so the ONLY way I can take the time off is to get someone to cover for me. Said coworker is off that day.

I could TELL my boss why, I know my coworker would change her day off if I asked (and if I tell her, I HAVE to tell my boss cuz they're good friends) ... my coworker is amazing generous.

But, I feel GUILTY at asking her to change it. The radiology place only had that one spot available (due to cancellation) or I have to basically wait til my 12 week.

So... trying to decide whether to spill it and let them know WHY I'm spilling it...

Or cancel the u/s..

Yay, you created a grads journal!!!! Again, so happy for you!!!

Like Karin, I would spill to my boss and coworker. I couldn't wait until week 12! Sorry you are put in this position. I'm sure that you'll make the right choice for you!

I agree. It'll give you peace of mind to have the ultrasound and it's your child we're talking about. Step one to being a mommy.

Thanks ladies

I seriously hate that I over-worry about EVERYTHING. Seriously.
I went in and told my boss I had a problem and that I had an appointment scheduled that day and it was "one of those ones you just can't change" .. and she said that if my coworker couldn't change her day off, that she would cover for me (which is staying an extra 2 hours for her...).

She's awesome... and I hate that I overworry. And I didn't have the spill, though I'm sure she has a good idea..since she asked me point blank last time if my "specialist appointment" was with a fertility clinic... LOL

Glad you got it worked out. I actually had to tell my boss that I was doing fertility treatments so I could get time off with short notice. I had told her about my m/c too (just couldn't keep it in the day I went back), and she sent me flowers, so I figured she'd be cool with it. Better not to have to tell about the pregnancy until you're ready though!
