CD23

Okay, I had one beer at the game (see last post). No problem there. It's after the game, that I may have over-done it. Ended up sharing bottles (3, I think) of wine with 3 other colleagues on the roof of the building where VP lives (right by the ballpark). And eating soft cheese, too!

Granted, this is so early in the process, that I'm sure I didn't do any harm. What with all the crack-whores who get knocked up, you'd think it wasn't a factor, at least for implantation! Who knows, tho. Mr. Jem's sperm.count is so low (25K) that it may not matter.

We didn't make it to the WTF appointment we were supposed to have the other week, because we had to take Fluffy to the vet. Right then. I finally feel like I could face the smiling Dr. W (not smiling in a good way, more like an insincere "I need to smile at them when I'm tell them complete crap and give them the impression I can help them get pregnant." smile). 

While at the clinic I'm going to ask for my file when we go so we can look for a second opinion. 

We'd love RE recommendations in the San Francisco bay area... if you don't want to post doctor or clinic names in the comments section, feel free to email me at ambivalent dot womb at gmail dot com (but with "." where I wrote out dot).

Three bottles of wine, soft cheese, on a rooftop? Yeah, that sounds awesome! I don't think you did any harm at all :).
Good luck with your second opinion! I hope you find an RE who will take your treatment seriously.

I'm sorry to return to this awful news about Fluffy. So, so sorry--this is really rough. On an equally not very cheerful not, I admit to drinking a little during the wait some cycles. It all feel so hopeless that I needs me a beer!

I have read excellent things on other blogs about Dr.Zouves in the San Fran area. Apparently he is very well known and regarded and has tackled some very tough cases. Check out http://eileenburnsjin.blogspot.com/ and http://noovenforthebun.blogspot.com/

Good luck!

If it weren't for alcohol half the people we know wouldn't exist...
