sounds like everyone is really progressing! rcr, i'm still thinking good thoughts for you, you never know. and blue and saphrons, i can't wait to hear about your imminent bfps!
afm, i'm out of the game for a bit. instead of letting my clinic take another random crack at me, i have decided to schedule a consult with the SIRM office in nyc. they can't see me until May 8th, but I guess it will be a good time for me to cleanse my body of all these hormones and get back to its own regular cycle. It also gives me more time to lose weight. I've been stuck at the 20lb loss for weeks now, which isn't terrible since i'm not regaining, but i'd like to drop more. i went jogging yesterday and hopefully i can keep up the exercise.
has anyone else gone to a SIRM or dealt with their drs? Dr Tortoriello, who I am seeing, specializes in PCOS and also women that are overweight, so I am really hoping he'll be able to figure out my issues and put me on a protocol that works. It does push out my next attempt though. Instead of six weeks from now, it's going to be months away. i'm impatient, and don't want to wait, but in my gut i feel like this is the right decision. my insurance will probably only cover one more try, so i might as well have it done at a place that specializes in what i'm dealing with.
interestingly enough, a phone consult is $250 but an in person consult is $388. do i get a massage while we talk? why would it be more expensive? is one better than the other?
also, for all of you ladies that have ever switched clinics, what's the best way to request records from your old dr? i feel really guilty about leaving my clinic. i don't know why, as i have given them 9 months of my life and walk away empty handed. but they have always been nice to me. i just don't think they know how to treat me. i need to get my records (and i'd like to actually take a look at them myself) but don't know how to go about doing it. i feel like i'm cheating on them. i have issues.
