Whackadoodle Doctor

I hadn't had a physical in quite some time so a friend of mine recommended a new GP doc to me- she had a really good experience with them- so I figured I would try them out. I get my physical and really like the nurse practitioner. She discovered through blood work that my thyroid is under active and put me on Synthroid. Ok- good. I go back 8 weeks later for blood work in anticipation of my follow up appointment. I go back a week later for the appointment and the office is shut down. Just closed. Like TOTALLY shut down. FOR THREE WEEKS. No explanation or note on the door or message on the phone. Nothing. Awesome customer service, huh? My next problem was that my prescription was only going to last me so long and the office was now holding my lab results hostage. I *finally* just got in touch with them yesterday. My TSH levels are down from 4.6 to 3.9, but not far enough. Ideally they should be as close to 1 as possible. So she increased the Synthroid and I go back in 6 weeks. YEAH RIGHT. So they can be closed again?!? The hunt for a new doctor is on, but at least there is progress.

Moving Right Along

First of all- I've realized that I suck at blogging. I can't make mine have all the cute headers and dividers. It's a work in progress.

So Enrique made a urologist appointment today. Probably because I threatened him within an inch of his life if he didn't, but I'm ok with that. July 1st is the date. Far away, but not terrible. I won't be able to go with him because of a work conference so I have the next two weeks to compile the long list of questions that I have for the doctor. Must start now!

My aching ute

Enrique and I went to see some good friends this weekend who have a 14 month old son. HOLY SHIZ he is the sweetest little boy. He makes my uterus ache. Not all kids do it- but that little one TOTALLY does. I love him to bits.

I think part of the reason that I'm full steam ahead on the baby making train is that I'm finally truly happy in my life. I am so content in my relationship with Enrique that it's not just that I want to have a baby- but I want to have a baby with him. I'm trying to make an effort do discuss the "clinical" parts of this process less with him. I'm doing all the same work- peeing on all the right sticks, counting, tracking...just trying to leave him out of that part. Hopefully it will work.

I'm also hoping to get a urologist appointment scheduled this week. Dying to get my questions answered!! I should ovulate this week so it will be a busy one!
