MommyHawk - Thank you for your input. I'm not sure if it is or not. I just know it's called Shady Grove Fertility Center. You're experience sounds really awesome! Would you mind letting me know (either here or via PM) your doctor's name?
I don't know if we are going to go that route yet. I hope we don't have to but there's a possibility we will be going.
We conceive really fast... It's like my husband simply sneezes in my direction and all the sudden I'm pregnant. The problem is our embryos have trouble sticking around past 6 or 7 weeks. I've have had two chemical pregnancies (this would be our first kid). We're trying one more time and hope the 3rd pregnancy will finally stick (my awesome doctor found borderline low progesterone and has me on supplements).
If we don't get pregnant by the end of this summer or if I have another mc during this next pregnancy, it's been recommended we visit Shady Grove just to make sure we get basic things sorted out (dh is 40 & I am 34) before it gets too late to do anything.
LoveMyCorgis- Thank you for your input, too, and super congrats on the twins! I think it's wonderful your doctor has given you the freedom to choose what to do. He sounds like my sort of doctor.
Part of my fear of going to a fertility center was worrying about being hassled into an expensive unnecessary treatment. Last year, I had a bad experience with a ob/gyn who refused to believe me when I told her I had a mc. She hassled and pressured me to get a hysteroscopy without running any tests during proper times in my cycle (ex- she had me get a hystersonagram right before my AF - which is apparently a big no no, plus she never ran hormone tests during specific times in my cycle).
She also completely ignored me when I said my periods had all be normal for years. She kept calling the MC an "irregular period." When I told her we had a positive on the HPT right before I lost it, she said that didn't mean anything bc they didn't get a positive in the office (I had come in over a week after the mc) I know hysteroscopies are supposed to be minor surgeries, but it seriously felt like she was pressuring me into to get one for the $$$ as she never paid attention to anything on my chart and sort of acted condescending to me. If I can't trust someone's motives, I don't want them cutting into my body.
I have a new OB/GYN this year (in Columbia). She is VERY awesome.
