So I'm so happy with my new OB!!!

I went in halfway expecting to just talk to a nurse and do a history, but after the normal prelims I saw the doctor. She really listened to me, she was compassionate and understanding about wanting to get some answers before we try again, she was willing to talk about all kinds of possibilities and options and she is willing to work with my midwife (they've done it before in the past) to get me as close to the kind of birth I want as possible!

Right off she said she wanted to plan on giving me a prescription for prometrium and have me start taking it right after I ovulate. Yay! No battles there!

She drew 6 vials of blood to have my blood tested for antiphospholipid syndrome and lupus anticoagulants. She's going to review my previous testing for clotting disorders and see if there are any additional test we need to do. We're going to do an HSG of my uterus to see if there are any anatomical abnormalities of the uterus. And if all of that comes up negative and the progesterone doesn't give us a sticky bean, then we'll start thinking about chromosomal testing, first for me and then for DF.

So I'm feeling very positive. She wants us to wait until February or March to try again, but with the holidays and the wedding in February that seems about perfect... I'll get the results of the blood tests next week...
