Perinatologist

I went to see Dr. Khoury, the perinatologist, this morning. He basically thought I was crazy for coming there since I'd "only" had one pregnancy loss. He said that my doctor ordered way more tests than he would have and he thought it was overkill. He didn't see any reason for me to have another miscarriage, other than bad luck.

Although he kind of made me feel like an idiot for coming to see him, it reassured me that there's nothing wrong with me and that one of these days I can have a baby.

In other news, Miss Carley made it through her tear duct procedure like a champ and she's recuperating at home. I bet her Mommy and Daddy are relieved it's over!

I love overkill...very reassuring. You got great news! Glad little Carley is at home and the surgery is over. Hope mommy and daddy get the sleep they need now, since I'm sure they haven't slept well with this on their mind. I know I didn't when I was waiting for you to have the surgery.

My posting says "anonymous", but it is obvious it is mom. I forgot to identify myself.

It's good to know that things are fine on some level.

My doctor gave me the "bad luck" card and it just doesn't sit too well with me. You can't fight luck.

Big hugs to you! But I'd rather be a patient accused of coming in prematurely than one that is there for a "valid reason." I'm glad you're in the latter category and hope that you feel good about your chances in the future. A good friend of mine went through almost EXACTLY what you did 2 years ago and they were able to get pg again and now have an almost 1 year old. Keep thinking positive!
