With the transition back into the TTC world comes the inevitable testing mania. I have an appointment with the RE end of February and know that they will reorder CD3 bloods, follicle count (AFC),and an HSG… fun, fun, FUN. But I guess they also called my GP and wanted me to have a physical. So my GP obliged and then sent me off for yet more blood work. Just the routine kind. I tried my best to convince her to also send me off with an RX for CD3 bloods and the AFC but she told me flat out that, with budget cuts, she absolutely would not send me for anything more than they specifically indicated.
So much for bucking the system and getting a move on.
So, just routine bloods. Nothing interesting expect that one of the forms was labeled “prenatal” blood work, the kind that checks antibodies and disease resistance. No fucking clue why she thought this was necessary but it has meant that both her receptionist and the receptionist at the lab congratulated me on my “pregnancy”. Super awkward for everyone involved… Cringe worthy.
Am I the only one who thinks that typical GP’s don’t know anything about fertility or the fertility medicine process? I mean, I get that it isn’t their wheelhouse, but I am so sick of having to be the knowledgeable one in the room when I go in looking for answers. February can’t come fast enough. Looking forward to seeing Dr. Freckles again and dealing with a professional who fucking knows something.
