Tests continued...

Okay so now I am finally going to finish up what I wrote in the last post that got deleted.  So we later found out that her first number was really 261 not 216 like she was told.  G was looking around at her test results online and found out.  Soooo that means since the 2nd number was only 479 it didn't double.  I am not too concerned because the double time is still 57 hours which is well before 72 since they want it to double in 48 to 72 hours.  I just think that means there is only 1 baby.  Which I am okay with.  G probably not.  But I know she will be happy either way!  I also talked to the nurse about the crinone because it was causing irritation so she called in a script for endometrium plus said G could cut back on the crinone for now and didn't have to take full dose of endometrium since her Progesterone levels were so high.

The other thing I talked to the nurse about is an ultrasound.  They want her to have one but they don't take her insurance.  Won't even run it outta network (which upsets me).  So we don't want to do her care up there anymore now that she is pregnant and insurance will cover her appts.  It is too far to drive and will cost too much.  I asked if we could be seen at my midwife's office.  She said that would be fine but they won't see her till she is 6 weeks.  That is their policy.  Well that is fine with us.  You don't see much at 5 weeks anyways.  She gives us a requisition for the ultrasound and I go to schedule that and of course it's not that easy.  They won't let G schedule an ultrasound till she sees my midwife, Wendi.  So I schedule the appt for Aug 27th and they tell me that if Wendi orders the ultrasound that day they should be able to squeeze us in for an ultrasound the same day.  So we have our fingers crossed!!

The other thing the nurse told me Friday was that G's TSH number is rising so they want to watch it.  So she needed retested Monday which would have been Aug 18th.  The TSH number Thursday was 4.85.  So Monday she goes for her retest and of course no one calls her back so Tuesday afternoon when we still hadn't heard anything I call.  The nurse said "oh I left a message with G her level came back at 5.21 so we want her to continue her med"....I was like "wait what?"  1st you didn't call G i just talked to her and she hadn't heard from you and 2nd she isn't on medication.  The nurse says "well Chris decided Friday she wanted G to start meds for thyroid so she called them in"  I was like "umm no I went to the pharmacy Friday to get the script you called in and there was't anything else"  and I knew there wasn't my friend is the pharmacist so she would make sure to tell me.  So she looks at the notes on file and says.  Chris tried to call G and couldn't get ahold of her so didn't know what pharmacy to send it to so didn't.  Ummm now I am getting upset.  1 she didn't call G's phone 2 they sent in a script that same day so they knew where to send it and 3 isn't this kind of important so they should try to keep calling G or maybe call me?????  So I find out they have been calling the home phone (which we really don't use) even tho our cell phones are suppose to be primary contact.  I check the messages on that phone from Friday and this Chris person said "this is your doctor office please call us back" that is it no name or reason.  Doesn't sound too serious does it?  Well it is this could be life or death for our baby!!  I can't believe this!!!  So anyways she finally calls in the med and G runs right over to get it to start it.  We are hoping our baby is okay.

So I am pretty upset with our fertility clinic.  The care since I was there is awful.  You are just a number and they make lots of mistakes because they see so many people.  It is really sad.   Nothing seems to be going that smoothly this time but it is okay as long as we deliver a healthy baby around April 21st.  Which will be the due date!!
