An emotional day
6

So today has not been a good day as you can see from my earlier post. I just received a call from my younger brother telling me they are expecting their second in October. Now I am excited for them but cannot handle the news right now. What I do not get is that my mother against my wishes told my brother of my procedures and that I did not get good news today. After hearing this news today he still preceded to call me and tell me they are pregnant. Are people not sensitive to others feelings. I never thought that this would be such the emotional rollercoaster it is.


I do not believe I got the medical treatment I should have received. I do not like that most of my appointments are with the Physician Assistant and I do not see the doctor for weeks. I get no answers to why I have low estrogen levels and feel like I am passed over for the next patient waiting. When I spend this much money I want to feel like I matter and that we are doing everything possible.


The only good thing is that we have chosen to seek out another RE for opinions. My appointment is not until April 13th but it is with a really well known RE. It will mean having to travel 4 hours for IVF procedure but will be worth it in the end. I just hope they can provide me with the answers I need.


Sorry for the long post. It has been a long emotional day.

Katrina,


All I can say about your brother is OMG!!


It would be bad enough if he didn't know what you are going thru and just happened to call yesterday but the fact that he does know & called you with an announcement of a PG just astounds me!!


I am sorry that you aren't getting the treatment you should be at your doctors office.


I'm wishing you the best of luck with the new RE:)

Thanks Christine. It is really hard to go through what we ladies do. Many people who do not have trouble do not understand the emtional rollercoaster we endure every month. I too am hoping the new RE will work out. He is well known RE in the infertilty world and research and has helped construct the IVF process for the Mayo Clinic in Rochester MN.

Thanks Nat. Yesterday was a reality check with a lot of melt downs. I did not know how hurt I have felt with not being able to have another baby. I too am hoping the new RE will give me better results.

Katrina,

I'm in shock that your brother would tell you that yesterday, he seriously could've waited a few days to break the news. Ugh.

I'm glad you are going to consult with a new RE. You should absolutely feel like you are getting the best care and move on if you don't think you are.
