Kara....I have to ditto what everyone else has said. It is so very important to find the OB/Peri that you are comfortable with ---good luck with that. I love my OB and his optimism and caring attitude was one of the driving forcing in convincing me to TTC again. Best wishes to you!

Kara ~ That is wonderful, I too am starting after my next cycle. Good luck with the peri search, I too am looking for one to be comfortable with. All of this is so scary and wonderful at the same time. Best of luck, can't wait to see your +++!!!!

I just wanted to say I agree with all the others. I know how you feel. Our original plan was to start ttc in July. I have now put it off until Oct/Nov. I am still just too scared. Please find a doc you like and almost more importantly, a doc's staff that you like. You tend to deal more with them than the doc. This doc I found had a wonderful staff. They were all so nice and supportive. (I just hope I have made the right decision in my choice. My last one didn't turn out so well.) Anyway, I hope you get a ++++ soon. Best of luck to you, and have fun!

Big time agreement with Michelle - my doctor had an awesome--totally wonderful nurse, and the other nurses in the hypertensive obstetric clinic were great, too. They make life so much more worry-free and fun as you go through this!

Best of luck again, Kara!

Congratulations on TTC and good luck!!!! As for the doctor, also see how the staff is. When I went for my u/s or many other tests, I mostly dealt with the nurses who were so great. I even visited them afterwards and invited them to a party we had. They were so sweet!!

Congrats on TTC next month. I look forward to hearing the good news soon. I know how you feel about playing the 40/60 game in your next preg, I'm in the same boat and it is not a fun place to be. I hope you find a Dr. who you feel 100% comfortable with.
