This was fast, I will go in 2 days but at least they can check my labs and my progesterone levels.
I called my pcp and the girl was not helpful, she tells me I have to make an appt with the dr in order to get a referral. I asked, why can't you all just give me a referral, you don't deal with Obgyn issues. She tells me she doesn't know but I need a referral and I can call back in 20 min and speak to the main girl.
So I call back in 20 minutes and am put on hold, finally the main girl come son, gets my info and my new insurance and tells me I don't need a referral from them, i can do a self referral with this insurance. I am given a # to an OB and so I called and the lady was really nice and got me in for this Thursday @8am.
I know they won't do an u/s yet, but I am relieved to get my bloodwork done jic I need extra progesterone. I am using the wild yam cream right now but want to make sure everything is going as it needs to in order to keep this peanut safe and healthy.

Thanks mama's. I was nervous thinking it would be a long wait and with both my last mc and chemical pregnancy, I hoped it wouldn't be a long wait. I hope the appt goes well, I have read reviews about this office online and they are really mixed.

I'll be in the Ob same time Thurs ;) They took my progestrone labs last Thurs and still haven't told me the results. I'm just gonna wait till this Thurs appt to find out since they already put me on it just in case before I even took the lab test. Hoping this Thurs they can get me in for u/s and check for hypothyroidism but maybe not...
:goodvibes: Good luck at your appt! Hoping all goes great for ya! :)

Thanks mama! Is the prog tests different than the regular blood tests they do or is it the same one? I am going to write my list of questions for this new office so I can make sure they are going to be the right fit for me. Goodluck at your appt too.:)

My appt went pretty good, I was pretty nervous because of the mixed reviews and then a friend of mine came by yesterday and told me she thinks this is the dr her friend had and the dr is careless.
I met the nurse practitioner, her name is Francesca, she was really polite, says she started working there a few months ago. The front desk girls were also friendly and smiley.
I had to get a pap because I was due for one, I got an rx for zofran, iron, calcium and prenatals. Oh I also got an RX for Prometrium, 200mg, I didn't fill this one yet because I was told my insurance won't cover it and dh doesn't get paid until tomorrow.
There is a counselor/educator who's name is Maria, she was nice and told me all they offer the patients, including free lamaze classes and also therapist if you need/want.
She offered to sign me up for Wic, but I told her I don't need wic right now and so she told me, if I change my mind to let her know.
I go back next Thursday at 8am, this appt was got GYN, the next is for OB.
This place is different than I am used to but so far so good.

Thanks mama's! I think I get to meet the dr next week, I hope I like her, I am so very nervous. one review said this dr cut through her liver during her cs, I don't know how but it scared me.
I figure if we don't click, I have plenty of time to get a new dr, in the mean time get all these early prenatal care done here.
