I am so excited to announce my 1st RE appointment! I had a prior post in regards to my obgyn not approving me because I am on active duty. Well, I have a new doctor at my command, and when I went to change my progesterone prescription, I told him that my husband and I have been trying for over a year now to no success, and what the obgyn said. He told me that that was bs, no one has the right to keep us from trying. I started crying right there in his office! With my fibroid gone down, hopefully we can start right away, as we only have a few tries before my husband deploys. I am soooo stoked for April 3rd now!! I got my first “O” in months though last Sunday, so I might not even need his services! Either way wish us luck please, we are praying for a miracle!

@NaijaPuertoDorian: oh lovely news!!!! Best of luck to you & your Darling Husband. Sorry I am not familiar with the army but I do not understand why a doctor would refuse to help you have a family…. That makes me sad. I hope it happens quickly for you guys! Especially before your Darling Husband goes on active duty xoxo

@NaijaPuertoDorian: What wonderful news! I’m sorry you’ve had to go through so many problems thus far but it sounds like things havre really taken a turn for the better now. I’m sure that now that you’re being treated things will go so much better in your TTC journey!

@MrsHoneyC: Thanks! we are navy 🙂 The obgyn said something to the effect of my command needs me, they didn’t spend all that money on my training for me to get pregnant. He said if I was in a non deploying unit, or a reservist, or a civilian, he would help me. So happy to not see him again, I literally had to beg for a biopsy for my fibroid, a strong family history of estrogen related breast cancer wasn’t enough. Hes one of those doctor’s that patch you up enough for battle and send you on to your way.
@ScottishMrs: Thank you! Hopefully ill be able to share some bump love soon!

@NaijaPuertoDorian: I’m sorry, but f*** that s***! If you were a man trying to have a baby with his wife, there would have been no b.s. about how “you weren’t trained to have a child.” That’s seriously sexist. What, if women want to have kids, they shouldn’t have training/education/etc. and should just sit around and wait to get pregnant? Please.
Hope you get lucky, soon!

@bluegreenjean: +10 This.
What an @$$. That’s not an ok attitude to have at all. After all, isn’t the military composed of a really high percentage of kids that grew up in military families? That’s what I’ve always heard. It probably would have taken everything I had not to slap some jerk who said that.
OP, I’m sorry you had to go through that, but I’m thrilled for you that you’re finally getting somewhere. FX its a short journey for you.

@picturemeurs: Thanks ladies! It is very intimidating going up against a higher ranking officer as an enlisted person. If it wasn’t for my new primary care doc I would still be seeing the same gyno, I was kind of powerless in my own care (which is incredibly frustrating believe me).
