Hey Lovelies,

Now that we have it settled in our minds that we WILL try for a second child there was really only one thing for me to do… Get re-referred to my RE, of course! After a year your file lapses and you need to get back into the system. So, I had to go back to my GP and have the conversation with her about why I need the referral.

It was almost comical actually because she wasn’t my GP previously and only sort of knew I had IVF to fall pregnant. I tell her I need to be referred back to the clinic and she tried to argue with me that they like you to try naturally for 6 months- a year before getting referred. I was like I know, usually. But I need to redo all my testing and stuff so, while I am trying naturally, I will do all that and not waste time. Then she was like “Well, why not come back to see me in a few months? You never know you might just…” no… no. I told her I had already spoken to the clinic. They are expecting my re-referral and that we would go forward from there under their watch. Then she asked what procedures I had gone through last time. I laid it on the line for her, 3 years: 2 rounds clomid, 2 IUI, and one IVF. No pregnancies until the IVF. FINALLY she goes, “Oh, they probably wont make you try the full 6 months naturally then”. Yeah, no, they wont.

She sent in the referral.

Now to wait for their call…

    Why do doctors not listen? It drives me crazy when they don’t listen to your own experience, to your history that you know better than anyone. I am glad you got the re-referral, but sorry it took so much convincing to get it. And argh to the “oh, maybe you might….you never know…” line of thinking. Let that maybe come while you’re on the list for testing! ๐Ÿ™‚ Glad you’re off and running.

      Jess,
      I wish I could stop re explaining my diagnosis to DOCTORS. I feel like they should know shit.

    You would think a doctor would know that for some couples there is no point in wasting time waiting and hoping for a miracle. Anyway glad you got your referral. Best of luck with the next stages

      Dubliner,
      You’d think, apparently some dr.’s don’t believe in science. Glad to be moving forward at any rate.
