Being my own advocate!

Okay...after listening to some wonderful advice from the ladies here (and DH), I have decided to seek a 2nd opinion on my spotting issues and such. I have made an appointment with a new OB/GYN after getting recommendations from a few people in my area. Although I have been with my current OB since I moved here, and she was with me through my pregnancy with DD, I decided to bite the bullet and call someone else. I do hate change, especially when I have a history with my current doc, but hopefully this change will be for the better. I just feel like my doctor, although I like her, has too many patients and is not REALLY listening to me. She has been great with ordering blood work, which is fine, but has never actually suggested coming in to discuss my concerns. When I called this new doc and asked if I could do just that, the response was, "Of course!" So yay! I go on August 4...that's the soonest I could get in. :)

Good For you....you can do and so can I....I have been feeling the same way not wanting to go get a second opinion cause I have been with the same guy forever. Now we are at the 1 year mark and something has to change. so I did it too. I got an appointment with a family doc who specializes in OB. Good Luck to you. I hope it goes well and you get the help you need. and a BFP soon.

Thanks for all the support! It really means a lot! I feel really hopeful about seeing someone new. Sounds like I'm moving on from a break-up, doesn't it?? :)
