This month marks the one year anniversary The Hubs and I have been trying to conceive. More than a little frustrating that these twelve months have not worked out as planned, but now we finally can go to the doctor for some answers.
I have an amazing OB/GYN. Her name is Jill. She is young, funny, pretty, and always has amazing highlights. Well, Dr. Jill doesn’t deliver at the new hospital in our town. The hospital, LITERALLY, half a mile from my house. It’s been real Dr. Jill, but I’m not going thirty minutes away to deliver when I can go half a minute.
So we are making a fresh start with Dr. Amy.
The Hubs comes with me to this appointment because we don’t know what to expect. I’m not a major drama queen, but as the hours were getting closer to the appointment I started to become a crazy person. Seriously….crazy.
The devil was whispering all sorts of irrational things:
(please imagine ugly devil in red, leather unitard with red pitch fork whispering to me while I am putting on my make up)
- Dr. Amy is going to tell you that you can never have children
- Dr. Amy is going to tell you that you have cancer
- The Hubs is going to reveal to Dr. Amy he has had a baby with another woman…so its definitely your parts not working.
- Dr. Amy will have really bad hair and not have a sense of humor about any of this.
Needless to say, my mascara was waterproof this day.
Side Note: The Hubs wears a backwards Chicago Bears hat, basketball shorts and a t-shirt that says “Waylon Jennings” to this life altering appointment….
We go to our appointment and as I walk in I hear a woman MAJORLY CRYING in the entrance restroom…. “I bet she saw Dr. Amy” is my first thought.
At check-in they get six pages of paper work from me, take my picture, and ask me to pay a $50 co-pay. Dr. Jill only cost me $25.
They get my weight ( I turn my head) and medical info.
Then escort us into Dr. Amy’s office…where she is waiting on us.
Dr. Amy has a big smile and super cute boots. What a relief.
She sits us down and asks us all sorts of questions. Ya know: STDs, does The Hubs have any baby mommas, do we do drugs?
The next step: he has to get a test (quite awkward for him) and I have to get like three tests.
All and all it was a good appointment and Dr. Amy was really nice and to the point (GET BEHIND ME SATAN!)
The next appointment will be Day 21 of my cycle.
