Doctor's appointment

Frustrated, angry but also devastated Sad
Feel like giving up entirely. Just got back from the doc, they were holding my referral (for whatever reason) for the last month!!! She is sending it now but I'm told it will be a long wait to get in - we're talking Months - guess I'm out for October and likely November and December as well since my chances of getting pg on my own are now slim, going to go cry my eyes out for a bit...

Oh Crystal, I'm so sorry that the stupid doctor held your referral for a whole month! I would be so angry! I truly hope that the wait doesn't actually take months. ((HUGS))

Is it possible for you to see a RE in the US? I think most OBs here in the US will prescribe Clomid so maybe your OB can prescribe Clomid for you?

Please don't give up....I know it's extremely frustrating and it's so easy to just give up hope but it WILL happen! Please know that we are all here to support you. :bigarmhug:

This referral is for an OB, ,in order to have tests done that the fertility clinic will need. In New Brunswick we don't get to see anything other than our GP without a referral for consult.
Sad I'm not sure if she'll prescribe Clomid or not, my GP won't. I'm downlowding the referral form for the Fertility Clinic for both of us now since it's a further 4 to 8 weeks after they receive from our doctors that before we'll get our initial consult with them. Unfortunately seeing them before tests are done will only mean more waiting so either way I think we may be looking at a minimum of 4 to 6 months before we get in to see a fertility specialist, depending on the wait times for the tests (which also can take a while).

I am not sure about seeing an RE in the US, I think we'd be looking at too much money especially since we'd have to travel even further.

Definately bummed today Sad

Thanks everyone, I really appreciate the support. Having a super down day - after all the disapointment my mother had me go pick up formula for my sis in law... made it throught the baby isle but broke down in tha car on the way home Sad

As long as a little part of me refuses to give up completely I will continue to temp and chart, I am not expecting much but at least I'll have lots of info when I finally DO get in to see someone. I'll keep fingers crossed they take pitty on me and rush me in. The doc was adding the info about my charting and cycles, AND DH's SA came back normal - as expected.

On the up side - in 24 hours I'll be surprising DH up North Smile Miss him soooo much, especially on days like today.
