Well, I got my intake appointment scheduled yesterday. I'll be 9 weeks.
This was after I called the automated pregnancy test line and my patient number was one of the ones they read, meaning I am pregnant.
When I called to set up the appointment I was told that I should expect to sit through an hour-long educational video and have blood work done. I asked what blood work they would do, and she said, "*I* don't know!" Okay! Great.
I told my dh, "I am pretty sure it is pretty hard to roll up off of this conveyor belt they've put me on. Seems like an assembly line to me!"
He said, "I bet you could get some Twilight Sleep!"
I am thinking that my best plan of action is not to fight The Man, but to fly under his radar. I'm hoping that they are SO busy, that they just don't notice if I don't show up for whatever test they have me *automatically* scheduled for, or what have you.
I also keep thinking: What if this had been like past pregnancies, where I didn't have enough hcg going to turn a test positive? They would NOT have read my number on the automated line and I would NOT have been able to get a referral for OB care.
