Had my annual gynecological visit today with a manual breast exam plus pap smear to comply with the Denver clinic's requirements. Trying to get things rolling so we don't end up with any additional delays to cycling with the donor.
At my hospital, when you call to schedule an annual gyn visit, they typically tell you that the next opening is in, like, six months. So to get this appointment I had to use a connection who is friends with the secretaries at the gyn's office. Sure enough, six months turned into two days. Amazing. I guess they always keep some openings tucked away for emergencies and poor planners like myself?
Everything went fine at the visit. The doctor was pleasant but clearly thinks we're a little daft that we're still considering trying something reproductive. Oh well.
As she listened to a very digest version of our current plans, she said, "You know, you may also want to consider trying naturally. It works sometimes!"
What I wanted to say: "Are you insane?! We've been having timed intercourse monthly since the last miscarriage almost a year ago; in fact, we've been having timed intercourse for the past FIVE years every moment when I haven't been cycling...and well, yeah...not working for us so much. This past year, not even a chemical pregnancy. Just nada. But thanks!"
What I said: "Sure. We'll try that."
A little clueless on her part, but whatever. At least it's crossed off the list.
Tonight Will and I are getting on a plane and flying to the Denver clinic for a new one-day work up tomorrow. Wish us luck. I'll fill you in on how it goes when we return.
