Do you see the little darlings there? Sharing so nicely? I'm actually kind of impressed with the quality of this photo considering it was taken in a dark room with a camera phone.
My IF friends, you know what was going on while I got this shot. I was laying there, you know, wand and all. Lovely.
Of course I wanted to share it with you and give you a short update. After some back and forth, I was finally "cleared" to schedule my appointment with the maternal fetal medicine specialist. (Hereafter referred to as the MFM). The scheduling nurse said that they would not see me next week but between 9-10 weeks.
This did not make me happy since I trust Dr. D and he said he wanted them to see me NEXT WEEK. So despite being a pleaser by nature, I pushed back.
Me: "Why are you having me wait?"
Nurse: "Well, we want to make sure the pregnancy is even viable. We want to be sure we see heartbeats."
Me: "We already saw heartbeats. Yesterday. At 6w3d. That's why I'm being referred to you."
Nurse: "Oh. Really? Wow. Well we would not have expected to see them so early. Okay, how about we have you come in at eight weeks."
Me: "Okay. Great." (But in my mind I was thinking, eight weeks is not NEXT week but take what you can get.)
Tell me, should I have insisted on being seen next week? The reason I didn't push more is because I know that if there is a membrane (please God let there be another one) it will most likely be visible later rather than sooner.
So I'll go in on September 10th for a level II ultrasound and a consult with the MFM. The time's going to fly, right?
I said, right?
