A flurry of activity...
After a couple of weeks of waiting, there was a flurry of activity today. Firstly, I called my Fertility Specialist to book in for an appointment to get a referral to an OB but couldn't get an appointment until 1st Feb but the receptionist (who is fabulous) gave me the names of 2 OB's who specialise in high risk pregnancies and happily, I got in to the one that is connected to the best hospital in Melbourne. It is very pricey (even with our whole shebang private healthcare) but I honestly think it's better to be safe than sorry. Apparently it is very hard to get in to OB's here in Melbourne because of a shortage - when I told the receptionist that I was 7 weeks tomorrow, she said 'hang up the phone and ring now!' which was all very dramatic - I am very thankful that I got in to this doctor.
They also suggested that I book in for the 12 week scan as well, so I have done that and I also have to go back to the GP to get the referral to the OB, so I am booked in for tomorrow morning before the 7 week scan. I am glad that I am going to the GP tomorrow because I am almost out of the Progynova and I still have a few weeks left of taking it so I will need to get that sorted out tomorrow.
We have the 7 week scan tomorrow and I am pretty nervous - I am really hoping that everything is all okay. It is hard not to worry about these things but I am trying to stay as relaxed as possible.
In other news, we finally had some blessed relief from the hot weather and the past few days have been very civilised. Work has been pretty good, really pushing towards the end of the project now which is good - everything is due to finish at the end of February but I have been lobbying for other projects and I am hoping that they can find me something that will tide me over until around the end of July.
That is pretty much it in my world at the moment, I am really hoping tomorrow will go okay!
