My appt. went OK, I suppose. I may be finding a new doctor anyway. The doctor said HPTs are unreliable, yet they say to call the office once you get a positive HPT and then they schedule an appt. for 8-10 weeks to go over paperwork. THEN you get a sonogram a few weeks later. All the while having no bloodwork done to a) confirm the pregnancy and b) confirm that the embryo is developing and the levels are doubling properly. If she feels they are so unreliable, why doesn't she require a blood test at SOME point before the sonogram?

I guess one good thing that will come of this is that I'll now be able to have my beta levels tested regularly once I become pregnant again. She recommended waiting 2 months, but that seems so long:( I'm so impatient.

Arg. I hope that, if there is some possible way, you can find a doctor who is a little more sensitive and who you like a lot more. :( But I'm glad you survived the appointment -- I know it must've not been fun. Ugh!

Love you + praying for y'all.
