I finally feel like I am getting somewhere!!!

I had an appt w/my favorite OB last week. We talked about a lot of things and I finally feel like we have a plan. I had been fighting w/another OB in the office to write our lab slip to get our chromosomal analysis done. She wouldn't write the lab slip correctly....

So...onto my favorite OB. She is working w/my insurance company to get approval of the testing and hoping that they will cover it. YEAH!!! If/when I get pg again, I don't have to make an appt. The nurses will be able to schedule an u/s and blood tests for me so I don't have to fill out all the paperwork and crap. We talked about where we go after the testing comes back....possibly to an RE.

I feel better. Not sure if it is false hope or not, but I feel better. At least I know that we could possibly be moving forward.


10/6 Update:

Last Friday, after working w/my OB and the Insurance company for 2+ weeks, Steve and I finally had our blood drawn. HOLY COW!!! Still when I got to the hospital, I had to wait 45 minutes for the lab to figure out how much blood they needed to take....6 VIALS!!! Whew was I lightheaded after that!!!

I am not sure if I want to know the answers now. I know that there is a good chance that nothing will come up, so I am trying to prepare myself for that.

Thanks for all of your well wishes!!! I am going to call my OB today and make an appt so that we can go over the results. I will make it for about 6w out and call a few days before to make sure that they have all the results.

WHEW!!! Finally over!!!


10/15 Update:

My dr called yesterday with some of my results. All of my blood clotting disorder tests have come back normal. YEAH!!! The only test that we are waiting for is the chromosomal abnomality test. That will take another few weeks.

So...good news.

Yay! I'm sorry you had to go through so much to get them to do what they should have done a long time ago. I hope the testing can figure out what's going on and that it's fixable.

Thank goodness that if you look long enough you WILL eventually find a Dr you really like. I have been through my fair share as well & I know what a difference it can make to get with someone you jive with. Make sure the insurance is going to cover the karyotyping (like you said she is working on). That ONE test for Dh wasn't covered by our insurance & it ended up costing $1500.00. I was FLOORED when I got the bill.

Good luck & I hope they can give you some answers!
