I went to my OB/GYN for my annual appointment a couple weeks ago...man, do I hate going there. My blood pressure shoots through the roof and I have to convince them that it's not normally high, I just have major white coat syndrome, especially at *that* type of doctor. Then they look through my chart and see how much it fluctuates and believe me. I knew going in that I was going to discuss doing more fertility meds since it has been almost a year since we last went to the specialist. I was hoping we could do some more Clomid, injections, and sonograms at the OB/GYN so it could be coded as irregular cycles or something and actually be covered by insurance, whereas at the specialist, it most definitely is not covered. When I brought it up, my doctor was kind of hesitant. He confirmed that I do most likely have mild PCOS, which explains why I don't ovulate regularly (if at all), and therefore am having such a hard time getting pregnant. He made it known that he would rather send me back to the specialist but upon seeing my frustration/desperation and hearing about the $125 sonograms, he agreed to do another Clomid cycle with me. Of course, I know it may not work (again) but it's worth a shot (literally, I have a leftover injection from last year we may get to use!). After that, then hopefully I will have the courage to go back to the specialist and just get it done because obviously nothing else was working. I am so incredibly desperate to be pregnant again and even more desperate to just have another baby. I have even been joking around about adopting (not really joking, I am not at all against it, I just want to be pregnant again).
So wish me luck tomorrow at my day 3 sonogram and all donations toward the specialist are being accepted at this time. :)
