So excited...

So tomorrow is the big day.  I am finally venturing out and getting a second opinion from another fertility specialist.  While it is great getting free care on would be nice to be more than just a name on a chart.  After many recommendations and success stories, I am going to see "Dr. M" in Olympia.  I am pretty nervous since the husband isn't here to go with me.  Hopefully that isn't a problem for them.  Considering he has always tested normal, I don't think it should be a big deal.  It would just be nice to have some support and a shoulder to lean on.  Plus, I am a nervous wreck about it.  I mean, I am basically hoping that this guy will look at my records and find some little thing that the other doctors missed (shouldn't be hard since I've seen every doctor on base and they basically all ignored me.  Even after cutting me open.  Whatevs).

On another note, I am still totally gluten-free.  I think it is going pretty well.  It's definitely tough for me since I love all the things I can't have, but I am learning to be creative.  The real test will be when the husband comes home.  He is supportive and tries to be helpful, but I know he is not going to stop eating gluten, and I don't expect him too.  I will have to get beer for him for when he comes home...and it will be very difficult to not have one for myself!  Oh well, it's probably good for my waistline to avoid a beer or three two.  Maybe I will live a little and get some gluten-free beer.  Eww.

Wish me luck for tomorrow!  I will post about my appointment tomorrow night.  I know it is just a consultation, but hopefully he will be able to at least give me some hope.

Ciao :)


  1. Good luck, Steph. He is quirky but once you get past that you will see a very intelligent man who genuinely cares for his patients and LOVES babies! Be sure to look for Hazel's Christmas card there. :) I hope you get good news and perhaps even discuss a new course of treatment or testing.

  2. I saw your Christmas card hanging on the tree in his office :)
