should i call my peri?

I called my ob's office today and was told someone would call me back about confirming and paperwork... I said should I call my peri and they said no we need to evaulate u first. I said I already know I will be seeing a peri... and they were like you need to see us first... I'm thinking about just calling the peri... I have done so many tests, and digis aren't suppossed to give false results so I'm trying to let it sink in that I'm really preggers.

I say that it can't hurt. The worst that could happen is they say that you have to have a referral from your ob. You might be able to be seen sooner if you call yourself.

Sure- give them a call, if for no other reason than to share your great news! :) Sometimes the front end gals don't always know our histories (after a few appointments I know you'll be on first name bases with everyone!) ;)

Might be that for insurance purposes you'll need to go through hoops, but you can still give a call- whatever gives you peace momma, that's what's most important.

Very very excited for you and keeping all crossables crossed.
