I just got back from my initial visit with my new fertility doctor. She gave me the good and bad news but all very realistic and understandable. She said with my age, that the chances of me getting pregnant are slim but that it can happen. I’m not ancient, mind you. I’m 38. Yes, in pregnancy life that is older than they’d like. But not impossible.
She explained the tests that I would need to get done.
- Vaginal ultrasound
- Blood work (two different ones)
- Genetics test (optional)
We scheduled the ultrasound for the very next morning, May 1st, 2013 for them to do whatever. I think they just wanted to check out the equipment. But whatever they were looking for, came back fine.
I have my blood work scheduled for Thursday, May 2nd, 2013.
