Hi,

Where do you live? I am in southeastern Massachusetts, and I never had a problem w/ unsupportive doctors - though I know that attitudes are sometimes different in different parts of the country. Still, I would guess if you went to a reproductive endocrinologist they would probably be pretty supportive, since they would most likely deal w/ all sorts of non-traditional families as well as patients w/ infertility issues.

Hope this helps,
Heather

Yes, your message helps. Thanks for your message. I live in Central Massachusetts. I will give a couple different doctors a try and kind of get a feel for them, and then tak it from there. I was kind of nervous about it, but maybe I will have some luck with a regular ob/gyn. BTW...your little ones are absolutely beautiful :)
