Due date and my phone consult with Dr Braverman
Today would have been George's due date. We will never know if George was male or female, because of MCC of the Anora test. Eric thought our baby should have a name from day 1. You will always be in our hearts George. That blanket I crocheted every day while I was pregnant with you is complete and a reminder that you are watching over us.
I have been long awaiting my 10 min phone consult with Dr Braverman. I made the appoint 2 months ago! Well yesterday was the day. I was so hopeful and I had all my notes ready. I phoned at 2 pm, my scheduled time and was told to phone back in 25 mins- I was told this a few times and finally the lady said he would phone me back. I waited and waited. He didn't phone. Today on EDD for George, Dr B phoned me back. Coincidence?
He said that he would love to help me but he has dealt with my clinic before and they said it is against their policy to follow his immune protocol. So he said I cant either transfer my embryos to him or try to convince my RE to sign the form that consents that they will work with him and give him credit for the immunology testing. I told him about the 5 mg prednisolone not being enough last FET. He agreed that a higher dose was needed but he could not do anything unless my RE signed a consent allowing him to order the meds. Well the doctor's board of directors at my clinic would not approve intralipids so...slim chance they will agree to Dr B's suggestions.
Then this morning I decided I wanted to wear brown shoes and pulled out my little brown bag. There was a "Bonefish Grill" restaurant receipt in the side pocket. I opened it and the date was 06/20/2014. The date we first saw George's heartbeat on the monitor! I got chills.... Was it just a coincidence that I decided to use that little brown bag today? Come to think of it, I haven't used that little bag since that night when we went out to celebrate the heartbeat!
