Day 7 of provera and still no period, although I guess it’s not technically supposed to start until after I stop the pills. I still hate the waiting!
I met with my OB this morning and she was wonderful. They did put us in the conference room, so I didn’t have to endure the exam rooms (so the mean receptionist came through- I thanked her when I checked out!). And bottom line is that my OB is willing to do anything and everything to try to help us out with a future pregnancy, even ordering possibly odd therapies that are not ‘approved’. It’s so helpful to hear her say that, because you hit a point where you wonder if your doctors are really trying to help you as a person instead of just treat you so they can be done with you (or move you off to another doctor because you are complicated with so many losses).
I did hear some extremely frustrating news at my appointment- I told my OB’s colleague (my OB was not on call when my last baby died) that I wanted all possible genetic and pathologic testing done on my baby (even though we had done PGS and believed the baby to have normal chromosomes). I wanted a microarray done in addition to the standard tests. Well, they did attempt to do a microarray and they just confirmed last week that they did the microarray testing on me. Now, I can understand that things get contaminated when a fetus is only a few weeks along, the fetal tissue is not as easy to distinguish. But I lost my baby at 16 WEEKS. My baby was almost 6 inches long. How could they not get a clean tissue sample for the microarray? My OB expressed similar annoyance. So they think now that they do have fetal cells isolated/growing that they can test by the end of the week. Fingers crossed.
Honestly, I don’t expect to really learn anything more. I think everything is going to come back normal. But I would be so angry to lose a piece of the puzzle when we could have had it. More information and data always feels useful to me, I guess that’s just the kind of person I am.
And no word from Agency S- ARGH, they are so bad with communication. Nothing on that front, unfortunately.
