DH and I finally met with the new clinic last week. It was a much better experience than our previous consultation. Our previous consult was less than half an hour, and we were immediately being pushed towards IVF without having done any blood tests. Last week’s consult was a breath of fresh air. We ended up being at the clinic for over 2 hours, and most of that was talking with the doctor and geneticist, and not just waiting around! Continue reading
We have an appointment with a new fertility clinic! I’m so excited to visit another facility so that we can compare and figure out who’s the best fit for us. The original urologist that DH was supposed to see also works out of this clinic, and the scheduling clerk was able to give us an appointment with him too! We can finally get a second opinion!

I had my OB/GYN appointment a few weeks ago. When C did his semen analysis, a copy of the results was also sent to my OB. My first appointment with Dr. Rosengarten was quick, there were some good things, and some not so good things. Continue reading
