So I was visiting my family doc (Dr X) today to talk about shots for my upcoming travel to Asia. I wanted to use this as a premise to go there, to really ask him to refer to me to a gynecologist to see about endo.
"You don't have endo" - Dr X
"Um... but arn't some patients not symptomatic?" I asked
He didn't really seem to think there was a link between non-symptomatic endo and infertility. Ok-aaay...
He referred to the fact that my RE had done tests and so far they've all come out gravy.
I was all:
"But there must be something wrong that hasn't been checked yet, or I'd be pregnant now." I said this a few times. It did sink in, because he said
"If you want I can refer you to another RE for a second opinion."
"Yes, that sounds like a good idea." I said, while I am thinking - YES! YES! YES!
I have now figured the tricky referral system out! YAAAAAYYYY! I am so happy. I feel like it is coming together. I don't care how long I have to wait for Dr Awesome - and I can probably still see Dr Bad in the meantime, my family doc didn't say anything about only seeing one at a time.
I haven't been crying lately about IF related things, but I think I'm bottling it in - I had to hold back tears of happiness while I was waiting for my tetanus booster at the nurses station. Woah, slow down there, CS! This is just a doctor referral, but I'm SO HAPPY. Ridiculous, I know. Well, at least it adds some spice to the 2WW. :)
Work is sending me to Shanghai for a week that will be tacked on to my HK/Taiwan vacation - and I'm looking forward to it. A student is going with me, I'll be like his big sis on the trip, it should be kinda fun (he's never been to the far East - I've been to HK before, but never China or Taiwan).
Today at work there was another fire to put out, but I tried to keep it in perspective while my coworker freaked out. Again, I could have probably done slightly better, but I was doing pretty well. Even my boss' GINORMOUS baby bump didn't bother me today - seriously, she is huge. Was it last week I even questioned whether or not she was preggo? She is crazy big - she looks like she's like 5 or 6 months along...
