And on page 1234 too! Not so much 'totally talkative, crazy' as 'totally tired of chatting' - maybe because most of us either have babies now that take up all our time/energy, or we're too depressed about our now long-term unpregnant status!
I agree with the second part...! Definitely exhausted with the LTTTC!!! Never thought it would be me. But, hey, no one does right? I'm too lazy to even call the doc to see what's broken because I'm going to have to switch OB/GYNs...my pregnancy confirmation/48 hour count/miscarriage confirmation blood tests cost over $500 out of pocket due to the way my doc's billing works, and his inability to work with any independent labs for testing! So, knowing what lies ahead for me - testing city! - I can't even justify making the appointment. Just stinks knowing I have to go somewhere else! It's already a frustrating, completely heartbreaking thing I feel like I'm dealing with. Having to explain it all again to someone else, including my MC and the lack of getting PG again doesn't sound fun!
Aaaagh!!! Why is being a grown up so difficult? And why can horrible people who don't want kids seem to have babies when I really want one and can't? I am SO on another "pity party/woe is me" tip today!
Ooh, congratulations on your blue bundle!! HAve you rescheduled the anatomy scan?
Annie, that sounds soooooooooooooooooooooooo rubbish. I'm really grateful for our health service. (I know its a bit of a controversial/political topic over there so I hope I don't offend any one from the US with this, but from my point of view, I'm really happy to lose a tiny amount of my pay each month whilst I am working and to have free healthcare all my life from 'birth to earth'! Not that we don't have some problems with the service.)
Yes I forgot the other category of all the lovely preggo ladies who are too exhausted to post - or busy nesting and preparing!
I pay LOTS out of my paycheck...!! Haha. I even have secondary, military grade insurance through DH! I'm not political at all, so ya won't offend me! It just irritates me that my doctor would expect me to pay $300+ for bloodwork to confirm PG...?! Seems a bit ridiculous to me!
In better news, last month's cycle was 27 days. This month was 28. Maybe my cycles are straightening out?? Hope so!! Still doesn't explain why I can't get knocked up again! So afraid my MC messed up my hormones. I get positive OPKs, but I'm afraid the egg isn't actually being released! Stupid traitor body!
Annie, that is ridiculous that your doc makes you pay that much!!!! It sounds like your insurance isn't covering anything! I'm sorry you have to go through as much as you are! Praying it gets better for you!
Thanks JJs! My insurance is actually not bad...it's just the way the doctor does business. He won't use an independent lab, which means when I need bloodwork, I have to go to the actual hospital lab. So, I'm billed for an "outpatient hospital procedure," when it's literally a quick stick of a need in my arm! Sooo ridiculous! After talking with my insurance company, I will either have to convince my doctor to use a private lab (yeah, right!), go somewhere else, or pay out of pocket until my $1,000 deductible and $1,500 out of pocket cap are met every year.
