Today I had my annual appointment with my OB/GYN. Woo Hoo, right? Anyways, I was seeing the nurse practitioner instead of the doctor. A medical assistance took me back to the room and after I sat down this conversation unfolded:
"So, you wrote down that you aren't using birth control................does that mean you are trying to get pregnant?"
"Yes." (while thinking in my head, this should be in my chart, I came here for a consult just a few months ago)
"So, you aren't using any condoms or spermicides?"
"No." (J's semen analysis info should be in the chart too - he only has a few good shaped sperm, why would I want to try to prevent them from getting in? Plus, I just said I was trying to get pregnant!)
I honestly didn't know how to respond, I thought she could have been a little more in tune with what was going on. The nurse practitioner came in and say that she felt like we were living parallel lives. I had no idea what she was talking about and then she proceeded to tell me that she and her husband had seen the same urologist that J and I saw and then they saw the same RE that we are seeing next week. She gave me good insight on the practice and the doctor. It was wonderful! Clearly, she's a person who reads the chart before talking to you. The best part is she has two little boys now and said they were even thinking about trying for a third baby sometime in the future. She was really wonderful - and I thought it was so sweet of her to share that information with me. I'm just feeling better and better about our upcoming appointment.
