When I count on the wait no such luck

I called the RE yesterday to make an appt as a back up to using a midwife since I figured it would take weeks and weeks to get in. I didn't want to find myself in need of getting more aggressive and then having to waste more time. I was also planning on asking if I could get some blood work out of the way while waiting for the appt. Surprise of surprises my RE is able to see me in 2 weeks. I also have my CD3 blood work and ultrasound tomorrow. Yikes! I'm going to get the diagnostic stuff done and then talk to the financial person at the clinic before deciding if I should go with the RE vs. the midwife. I was kind of iffy on the midwife because she isn't affiliated with a doctor and she works out of her home. Working with her will mean that I'll have to deal with all of the delivery, storage and return details of man in a can (Mic). The RE has more experience, delivery and storage of Mic will go smoother and the location is more convenient. I'll have to see just how much more those positives will be running me.

I'm hating the ultrasound part because CD3 is the messiest and just ewww. I know they deal with it all the time but yuck. I hope the u/s tech is a woman because I think I'll have to decline if it's a dude. I decided long ago after my first male gyn experience that it just wasn't for me.

My cycles are still messed up and recovering from the lup.ron and surgery but my best guess is that I'll be ovulating on or close to the 25th. I might be out of luck this month because of the holiday and that would be a bummer.

Oh man, I hear you on the CD03 u/s. GROSS! I couldn't do it if it were a guy tech.

And MIC - HA! I'm going to steal that one, k?

Mic - heh! Love it. :-)

Many RE clinics are open 365 days a year because a woman's cycle just doesn't care about whether or not today is the Fourth of July. They happen when they happen. In fact, I had an IUI last Christmas.
