Seeing the Dr.
5
Sat, 07-24-2010 - 8:34am

Well, I called my Dr.s office and asked about doing an fsh.....at first the lady said, "well, we can sked. you for a 'pregnancy consult' or some such thing the end of August." Huh? So I have to wait until the end of August to have an appointment to ask for a test and THEN wait until another CD3 rolls around?

Luckily, I called back and talked to someone else...they asked my Dr. as she was walking out of a room and she told me to just come in on CD3 and ask for it. It's just labs, for goodness sake. I don't need an appointment or anything. The over 40 ladies at FF said to get an E2, estradiol, prolactin and LH and thyroid panel done, too. I don't know if they'll do that, but I'll take what I can get.

Part of me knows that ttc at 44 may still work....it just may take awhile. And part of me wants to know if there's a reason I have hit this brick wall so suddenly after last time.

So we'll see. CD3 should be about Wednesday.

Your doctor sounds better than mine!!!! Thankfully my grandmother and dh's grandmother never listened or the two of us wouldn't be here to even be having this conversation!!!!


And I'm the opposite of you(on this matter only) but I would rather not know the numbers.

Hey Dee :) I would push hard to get the blood work done if you want it...don't let them brush you off just because they think you have enough kids or are too old or whatever....nobody's business but your own!!!!!!!!!! After all I have gone through, I think it is good to know what you are dealing with - good or bad (but hopefully still really good for you). I am still shocked that I had 2 kids without much problem and 3 years later, my egg quality etc. is apparently just not that good anymore - distressing but true. I am hopeful for you as you seem like a pretty fertile lady!

Call again!!!!

Thanks, Jasmine.

I am going to call tomorrow and ask them to ask my Dr. to request what I want..so that when I walk in on CD3 they know what to do. Hopefully, she'll do it. I'm due for a pap, so we can talk about it then, I hope. They wanted to sked. a whole big "consult" thing...but I don't need that. I just want to know the numbers.

Where are you at right now, Jasmine?
