She is just so nice. I'm not sure what country she is from, but her accent is very strong and she is just so darn friendly. I think the friendliness must come from wherever she is from!

Anyhow, she went over the results of my ultrasound. She said she isn't sure what the spot means... It could be a small blip, or could be something left over from the miscarriage. So, I have to go get another ultrasound done. We said to go ahead and keep TTC, because if it is something left over from the miscarriage, we won't get pg anyways. And, if it is nothing, it doesn't matter anyways. The radiology people at my hospital are simply horrid... So who knows when they will call me.

(Although, if they wait till e first week of August, and I do get a BFP this month, we would be able to see a bean because it would be six weeks!)

Ok, so maybe that's not the best news but she gave it to me in a really friendly way.

As for my future plans: she is willing to do quantitative blood work the next time I get a BFP. So, question for you ladies, when would you have it done? She gave me the requisition so if I get a BFP I can go in any time. I'm thinking if I get a BFP, I will continue taking home tests and if I make it to the five week mark, I will get the bloodwork done then.

Now, she said my hormonal blood work up is normal.... But, if I have one more m/c, she will give me supportive doses of progesterone. She won't make me wait until I have had three m/c to help me out. I thought that was really nice of her.

So there we have it! Hopefully a BFP ASAP and I can move along to the midwife clinic in my town and I won't need her any more regardless!

Your plan sounds excellent. Isn't it amazing the difference a good doctor who listens and is empathetic can make?

I'm so glad she was so friendly!! Yay As for when you get numbers done, it's totally up to you - some people get them earlier, but others wait a little longer. I'm so glad you got a good one!

So glad you like your doctor!!!!

My plan is to go in as soon as I get my BFP and continue every 48 hours at first and then go from there depending on my numbers.

Fx for you!!!!!!!!!!!
