Hi guys! I know this has probably been discussed before but what questions should I take w/me to my pre-conception/annual GYN appt next Tuesday, June 10th? I'm already on pre-natal vitamins but I do take other medications and want to know what all I can and cannot take while ttc. Thanks for your input!

Thanks for that link. I remember that discussion! I jotted down a few questions from that one list and some about my own pre-existing conditions and concerns. I think that should be enough for now. I think I like this Dr. even though I've only seen his assistant in the past, she's really nice and he seems very sweet to his patients! He has pictures all over the wall in one exam room of him and the moms and babies he's delivered. In all of them he is grinning from ear to ear and his face is all lit up! He seems very sweet and that he loves his job! Wish me luck tomorrow!!

By the way, how did your appt go? I just read your other post about not knowing if you will be ttc in July or Aug, so good luck w/that decision! I think it will happen when it's supposed too!!

=)

Let us know how it goes today!! Mine had gone great....Dr explained how it happens :-D that was funny. My DH got in there and he said "I explained to her that she does all the work, so needs to be pampered, and theres no excuse for you not to do it" (all directed at my DH). "She only makes one, you make quite a few, so your little guys need to get in there and get the job done". haha! it was so funny!

Good Luck!

Hi guys! Back from my appt. It went great. I really like this dr.! He's very talkative, but I like that! He answered all my questions and some he answered before I even brought it up! He is very kind and caring and seems to really love his job. He wished me luck and said I'll see you in a year or hopefully before then! =)

Glad to know it went well! I can't wait for mine--I'm going to do it along with my annual in mid July. Congrats on being one step closer to TTC!
