I am still the same, still cramping/bleeding. so tired of this! Indy is doing great! she's crawling everywhere and getting into everything!!! its very cute! and a little frustrating that she starts screaming every 10 minutes because she can't go somewhere she wants to be! LOL

thanks for asking :o)

Hey- I got in with a super special GYN doc that I used to work for and just love but didn't go to her before because she no longer does OB. So, she basically said that the other ob should've done a d&c 2 wks ago, and that there was no reason for the every 48 hr hcg checks. Once a week wouldve been find after the initial one time 48 hr check. If I continue to bleed for another week or if my hcg this coming monday doesn't drop below 50 then she will probably go in and do a laproscopic surgery to clear things out. She also sent me to a good friend of hers who is an RE and very good- he's opening his own clinic with all kind sof neat new-fangled machines and stuff! :o) he opens on Oct.1st. Until then she will get me back on track and get this m/c to clear out of my system. I felt like this huge weight had been lifted off my shoulders today, I trust her like no one else in my life- she is a fabulous doctor! i feel so much better tonight. She gave me some bextra for all the cramping, its an nonsteroidal antiinflammatory. It seems to have helped a little so far. It felt so good to be validated. I will be writing a few letters this week. One will be to my ob to let her know about how awful the staffing is at the clinic and how it has turned me away. The other will be to the medical board of WA about the RE that I saw a few weeks ago. I have decided that if I remain silent then more women will be hurt and I just don't want that to happen. I didn't even come close to describing how I have been treated the last 2 weeks and in the past- I just don't want to go there.

thanks for caring girls! Keep up the ttc, I will be joining you all in just a few short months again :o)

btw..I got to meet Julie in person tonight, and I just have to say that she is just as sweet and wonderful as she is on here. And even more beautiful!

Elizabeth,
Oh I am so happy that you were able to see that doc and have had some news for a change!! And a new RE that she recommends must be such a relief!!! I can imagine how much better you feel tonight!! And good for you for writing those letters!! YOu are being an advocate for many women by doing that. I pray that your #'s are under 50 monday so you don't have to go though any more junk!!!

Oh Elizabeth that is so, so wonderful!!!!! So glad you were able to see her and about the RE. I hope the numbers go down too though, so things will end. So glad you were able to get some relief.

Take Care!!!

Elizabeth-that's awesome!! You sound like you are in so much better spirits. I'm really glad that you've found a super doctor, and I hope that you will be able to put all of this behind you in a couple of weeks. Good luck with the letter writing. I hope that it helps you with the healing process.

Oh Elizabeth...this is excellent news! I am so happy to hear about both of these doctors and the fact that you are now able to at least have a bit of pain relief.
Hope you continue to feel better...
Hugs...
