Appointment with OB/GYN

It went really well and I'm feeling really good about it. He sent me immediately for a basic bloodwork workup to test thyroid and some other things that I can't quite remember. He also requested some chromosomal testing for both me and Dan. He said that it could either be bad luck, something treatable, or something that could be identified but not fixable. I think that he feels it's most likely bad luck but he didn't laugh at me and feels that it's good to do some testing. I should get the results back in a couple of weeks for the basic stuff and it will be a couple of months before the chromosomal test results are back. He gave me a prescription for some infection that can be common but hard to find and he said that the antibiotics wouldn't hurt so he gave them for both of us to take.

He also told me that as soon as I'm pregnant next time, I can call him and he will give me a prescription for progesterone and baby aspirin and we will go from there. All in all, it was good and I feel like we have a plan in place.

Which leads me to this next part. As Dan and I move forward into this next phase, we are going to keep it more private. We don't want people asking all the time about whether we are pregnant or not. We will choose when we will start trying again and we will also choose as to when we will tell people that we are pregnant. Please do not ask us. We will tell you when we are ready to tell you. I know that we are loved and you are concerned and just want to be there for support but we will come to you when we are ready. Please respect our desire for privacy as we continue on this quest for our take home baby.


  1. Jennie, this is Bunny again ... testing from your mother's email account in google.
    She's out so hasn't read today's blog but I will mention it when she returns.
    Your request is very wise ... and most understandable. Chris and Steph are likely going through some of the same thoughts .... and wishes. You have a plan in place which is good .... and from what you've written, a God-sent doctor. This is great!!

  2. Jenn..I haven't seen you in a while and have been thinking of you. I'm happy to see your appointment went well and you are on track with a plan. I love your request at the end of your post. I wish it was common sense for some. I have the same issues. I hope everyone will give you the privacy and respect you deserve on this journey. Hope to "see" you soon. ((HUGS))

  3. Vanessa,
    I have been on a bump break which is why you haven't seen me around much. I'm trying to clear my head and focus on moving as well. I should be back though.

    I hope that you get the privacy that you are looking for as well. It's hard having everyone wanting to know what's going on, even if they mean well. Thanks for thinking of me.
