Chose my NYC R.E. - made appt

It's official.

Going to see Dr. Drew Tortoriello at SIRM in NYC. I can't get in to see him till September, but honestly, I really did want to try totally naturally till the end of the summer and see what happens. He has amazing online reviews and it just seems like it will be worth it to wait for a top-notch guy and the appt falls just at the deadline of when I was supposed to begin testing. Has anyone heard of him?

In the meantime, DH is going in for a semen analysis there on Aug 3rd, so at least we will know if he is having problems or not.

I am going in for my Day 2 (3) blood tests today at the lab--no idea how long it takes to get the results but I am just glad that the ball is rolling.

Awesome, those are all great steps in the right direction. I agree with finding a great RE if you have access to one.


Good luck!!

Thanks Jeanne! I think it was all the info and encouragement from you and others that got me moving in that direction. TBC!

Pix, I just found out I should have my blood test results this Thurs. YES, it is so great to have virtual friends--I don't have any friends offline that have gone through any of this.

Incidentally, we are on just about the same cycle, I see from your ticker. I am just a couple days behind you, so we should end up in our 2WW together. :)

Good choice, Dianne -- I too have read great things online. September isn't that far away (at least I hope not -- this beastly hot summer has been kicking my butt).
