I had my appointment with my doctor today. He was very nice and helpful. We talked for a long time and I told him all about my problems. He said everything that's been happening with my cycle is not normal and we need to get it checked out, so he referred me to a fertility specialist, because basically with no periods there's no way of even getting pregnant. I checked on my insurance and certain fertility benefits/treatments are included in our insurance. Yay! So I just have to wait for my insurance to approve the referral and send it to the specialist, which the lady at the fertility center said it would take about a week to two weeks to get back to her. So she scheduled me an appointment for Feb 5th to see the specialist. Hopefully the approval gets back to her before then, but if not she said that's okay we'd just push my appointment back a little bit. I'm so excited I got referred especially after only trying for 7 months, but like my doctor said, my problems just aren't normal. Even though I wish my body would be normal, be able to just TTC like everyone else and hopefully not be labeled as "infertile", I am happy and thankful today because this is a big step in the right direction on our TTC journey. The Lord is Good.
