Went in to see my primary Dr (Dr. C) this morning to try and get that authorization from St Jude's insurance. So they will put it in today and he said it may only take 7 business days till it gets approved and send back to my OBGYN and then I can make my actual "infertility" appointment. What a freakin' hassle! I just hope Dr. C's nurses do it right, because I had to go through this once with them before and they didn't know what they were doing, you probably remember because I had ALOT to blog about when it happened a while back! And I wanted to make sure, and when I was at the desk after my apointment, I was just asking the nurse about it and she was like "well it's just a push-through and we just send it back to Dr. L (OBGYN)" and I said, "no this actually has to get approved and needs authorization by your insurance, that's why Dr. L made me come back here and that's what Dr. C said needs to happen." Nurse: "ooooooh" I swear if something gets screwed up I'm going to lose it again!
Welcome! I'm Amy, a late 20 something Polish-Italian Catholic dealing with infertility. I married the love of my life on May 24th 2008 and we decided to start trying for children on June 24th 2008. It's been a hard road, but we have been finally blessed with a positive pregnancy test on June 19th 2010, almost exactly 2 years to the day we started trying. I don't always censor myself on this blog. Read what you like or none at all...but this is my story about my "Miracle in the Making".
