Found a OB/Gyn....

I am, basically, just going in for an annual & going to ask questions about her 'thoughts' on TTC at 43.....can she basically see if I would have anything in my uterus (thru ultra sound) that may hinder our trying?

I am new to this...I have only gone to Gyno for my annuals, for last 12 years!

Thanks Vickie....it was just disappointing because she was so 'matter of fact' about everything & here I am all excited about the 'thought' of TTC and the 'what ifs'.

I guess, I am just at the point, in my life, where everything is FINALLY going right and things in my life were horrible in my 20's & my 1st marriage, that it took me so long to trust a man again! But, I finally do & I am at the 'ripe' age of 43! :smileysad:

Oh well, I will just continue to be excited, thru your support.....& just see what happens!! BTW, Rachel Zoe, just had her baby boy & he was fine & she is almost 41!! Also one of my girlfriend's had her 1st child at 40 and her 2nd at 43!!!

At least she recommended the prenatals. Sorry it wasn't a better appointment with great encouragement but you don't need it from her, you have it right here and I say go for it!

If you end up getting the tests, prior to that ask the insurance company about the acceptable codes for the tests, then look up those codes and see if they say infertility or something else like fibroids. I didn't understand all this at the time, why would I, I am not an insurance biller.

Watch out for tricky insurance clauses.

Thank you Vickie! We'll see what happens.....I had a great one back in AZ, but I was single back then, so only saw him for the annual check up.
