The Fertility Carousel

Reaching for the brass ring on the fertility carousel (again!). (Because I already caught the brass ring on the infertility carousel and I want to get rid of it!) Two years of trying to conceive, but I finally got baby E. Now we begin going around and around again. Infertility sucks.

Ultrasound #6 and my first OB appointment

Wow! A fantastic look at the baby today! It even moved a little while we were watching (we= the RE and me, R couldn't be there)

You can see little tiny arm and leg buds! The head is pointing down. Cute little bugger, isn't it?

After my morning wanding at the RE I was off to my OB appointment. Not too much happened - they would have done an ultrasound, but 2 in one day is too much, even for me, so I just showed them the picture and told them that everything was confirmed and the baby was fine and they were ok with that.

I wasn't sure if I was going to go back to my same OB/GYN - these are the same people who kept me on clomid for 7 months and would have kept me on it for 9 if I hadn't gone to the RE on my own. But in the end it just seemed easier. I DID tell the doctor that the RE was a little shocked they kept me on clomid for so long, and she did seem sorry (sorry I felt that way, not that she admitted to making poor choices for me)... and she could tell that I was a bit upset.

The doctor was excited to learn that I was pg... of course, her first thought was that I got pg on clomid since that's the last thing in her records, but I soon set her straight. I find it odd that the receptionist who made my appointment listed me as simply "missed menses" rather than confirmed pregnancy even though I told her I was transferring my care from an RE. And when the nurse was updating my family history and LMP and such, I told her I also had the dates of my IUIs, but she didn't even write that down. I suppose to them it doesn't matter HOW the baby got IN there, they're there to get the babies out.

How fun it must be for you and your hubby to watch the evolution of your little one :)

Aren't doctors annoying sometimes?! I can totally emphathize with you...
