Progress....well a little bit anyway

I spent some QT with my phone.  Now I have appointments set up with my RE, and with a new acupuncturist.  I'm supposed to have a sono with the RE to make sure all is good in my uterus (which I highly doubt since I'm prone to scar tissue).  I'm betting that I'm going to need another hysteroscopy to clear everything up.  But we'll see.  I probably should have started going back to acupuncture earlier to help me heal better but I just don't feel like driving back to my old place (in my old town) since there are good IF acupuncturist nearby here.  I'm excited to go to the new place.  Both appointments are a week from Friday.  

I also got to chat with my OB.  I was surprised that she called me just to touch base and see how I was doing since our last meeting.  She said the spotting should ease up in a week or two which I'll be glad for.  This is getting really old.  And she is sending me a referral for a perinatologist and suggested that I get in touch with him/her well before I get pregnant again.  That works for me.  I want to as many smart people working on my case to prevent another loss.  My OB said that she'll work together with my RE and Peri and we'll get there.  I hope she is right.  Either way it is nice to start to put a game plan together.  I feel a little in control again.  

Tomorrow K and I take off for our would-be babymoon.  Le Sigh!  I was annoyed when I saw the note on the hotelsdotcom printout where K had requested a King Bed since  we were expecting a child.  Ughh.  
It will be so nice to go away though.  I got a couple of cute little summery dresses to wear that don't make me look at all like a pregnant lady.  So hopefully we'll have a nice vacation.  

Happy Memorial Day everyone.

I can relate to the idea of every little thing being a reminder. I got a postcard from my dentist the other day, the kind I filled out myself at my prior appointment 6 mos earlier, and I was reminded that I had been pregnant when I had filled it out. And was planning to skip this upcoming dentist appointment, not wanting to lie on my back for so long at 30 some weeks. Well, here I am, not pg, ready for that next appointment. X rays and all. It sucks. But a vacation is way better than a trip to the dentist! Enjoy it.

PS you have been awarded The Honest Scrap Award !

Have a wonderful trip and a lovely holiday.

I haven't been on here earlier because honestly, I didn't know what to say (I'm really bad with this kind of thing) and also it scared the _________ out of me because i think we were the same distance (what is it one says? distance? time?) along.

Take your time and don't do a THING you don't feel like doing, that includes talking to your non-supportive family members.

So glad to read your comments today, sounds like things are starting to come together a bit for you and having a game plan is great news. What a great medical team you have, it must be really reassuring. Enjoy your break!

That is good you are going ahead with your trip. You need this alone time together to heal as a couple. Good luck with the doctors' meetings.
