Doctor's Appointment

*For Girls eyes only*

Last month I visited my doctor to learn more about polycystic ovary syndrome. See I haven't had a 'problem' with PMS in over a year. Anyway, last month I was given an order for an ultrasound to check for cysts. I lost the order until this morning so i took it to work with me today. I called the appointment center just after they opened and made an appointment for 3:30 in the afternoon. I was told to go to the location in L-burg. Well, I went to L-burg, which, by the way...is incredibly cool. I had to drive through the historic section of the city. Beautiful.
So, I got to the medical center and a few minutes after signing in my name was called. As I stepped to the window, the receptionist told me that I had been set up for an appointment at the location that just happens to be quite literally around the corner from my house. I was a little upset, but was very relieved when she followed up with the offer of waiting 15 more minutes since someone else had canceled their appointment for 3:45pm. Of course, I took it. And ended up getting my very first ultrasound. I always thought that my first would be when I got pregnant, but apparently I need to find out if pregnancy is even possible first. My doctor has even gone so far as to recommend finding a fertility specialist already.

I didn't realize that you were so close to L-burg. Love that city - so pretty.

I'm glad that they're figuring all this stuff out now. And an ultrasound is way better than a pap smear!

I love L-burg, too. Have you been to Middleburg? That's also a beautiful town.

I'll pray that the doctors can find out what the problem is!

Not sure what to say, but wanted to say something...

My first ultrasound was during a miscarriage. Not sure if that would qualify as when I got pregnant.

Sorry to hear about your frustrating run around.
I pray things get figured out.

Losing weight will help with getting pregnant. I learned this the hard way.
