OB Visit

I went back to my OB today. It was scheduled to be a follow up to my ultrasound, but since they already told me the results over the phone, that was kind of resolved.

I took the opportunity to tell our OB about our EA plans, and I was hesitant because he is Catholic. The Catholic Church seems to be pretty split on the whole notion of EA because of their objections to the procedure that produces the embryos in the first place (IVF) and at our last meeting, we detected some negativity. We had had a bad few visits in a row and we were praying that things would either shape up or that we'd have success in finding a new OB with whom we felt comfortable.

Today the visit was awesome. It was just like all the visits we'd had before the last few, which made us love treating with him to begin with. He was very enthusiastic and supportive and is perfectly willing to work with a pregnancy after receiving clearance from the clinic. So, I'm excited and thankful.

No updates on the packet--been crazy busy with work. We're still hoping to finish it this weekend. My best friend is on Spring Break so I've been trying to spend a lot of time with her so I've done that in my free time instead of the packet. Hopefully when DH gets home tomorrow he'll have some of his part done and then we can work on the last joint sections together.

Hope you all are well!


  1. Very glad that this vist was better and that he's willing to see you with an EA!

  2. I'm so glad to hear the OB was acting nicely again!
    Did you discuss the unexpected ultrasound findings with him?
    How fun to be able to spend so much time with your best friend!

  3. Henri-I did! I meant to include it in the post. He said that he had never detected/felt it in my examines and it was never on a radiology reports. He said if I do indeed have it (retroverted uterus), that it's no big deal.
