Hey ladies. So I had my appointment with my doctor today.
Well it wasn't as long or in depth as I had been expecting. She basically said to eat healthy, no smoking or alcohol ( the normal common sense things) and to make sure to take folate. She told me I wouldn't need any boosters for things like rubella as I'm born in 89 apparently I've had 2 already but if your born before 86 you may need one. I've had chicken pox before so I don't need to worry about them. Also said that with my and Dps age, we are move likely to fall without issue however standard if a year goes by and no baby, see her again. We also spoke to her again about dp condition and she seemed positive again about it saying it should compensate for the other. She made it very clear to have fun with trying for a baby and don't stress about the baby part as stress levels and hormones can effect our chances.
I asked for a blood test regarding something that can effect those working with young children and elderly. Seems I work with babies all day, I wanted to see so I can be on the safe side. Get the results of this on Friday. So other than that all went well now time will tell when I start to o again and af arrives.
Dp came with me. I think it helped for us to both know exactly what to expect and have both of our questions answered. I think it's up to the individual couple but for me I would recommend it.
I was just thinking then, it's my birthday in 11 days and this (I hope) will be the last without children! Granted I'll probably be pregnant for the next which doesn't bother me at all but that's kind of a big deal right!its exciting and scary all at the same time!!
It's a funny thought hey. Something you want but at the same time you are saying arrrggh inside. My birthday is in march so I'm hoping Ill be a few weeks pregnant by then. Here's hoping. I can't wait to start seeing all the bfp in this group appearing.
It's exciting hey! I thought wow this was our last fathers day with 2 kids, next year will be 3! Even if it is in the belly. I have PCOS so needed clomid to conceive my kids. I'm going to call around in November this year to look at how long appointments are to see the specialist, and probably make a booking. Would hate to be ready to conceive and be told that it'll take 3 months to get in - then they generally fluff around with tests for a month or so. Figure I'd like to see the Fertility specialist around Jan/Feb so that we can get ready to try by the end of summer!
Hamij- how do you know you have pcos? Was it diagnosed after you tried for a while?
