Our 1st appointment was June 19th.  It lasted about 2 hours.  Our doctor is totally dorky but we are so comfortable with him- love him already.  We discussed what our plan is, both of us got blood work and then he did a vaginal ultrasound to look at my ovaries.  It was so cool to be able to see inside of me on the screen.  Since I’m 39 the doctor doesn’t even want to bother with clomid and would like to go straight to injectables.  I have a bunch of tests I have to do first and he won’t start anything until he has all the results back- including a clear pap and mammo from my gyno.  I also needed a tetnas shot since I can’t even remember when was the last time I had one.  He also wants me to start taking pre-natal pills right away to ready my body.  I scheduled all my tests for next week- need to get the ball rolling.
