Do genes matter?
3 days ago
I am writing to inquire as to whether we can have a short phone conversation. After my ultrasound yesterday I met with Dr. B yesterday. He was very nice and supportive and explained that, due to the findings with the heartrates and measurements of the fetuses, that it appears that this pregnancy will not be viable. However, because he has limited knowledge of my history, he was not really able to tell me much more or to give me further information.
After speaking with (the nurse) D yesterday, I have scheduled an appointment on Thursday for a follow up ultrasound, and will again be meeting with Dr. B. D explained that protocol is usually to have the follow up a week later, and also that you will be out of the office at the end of this week, but between our devastation at the news and the fact that I have been having pregnancy symptoms that are leaving me feeling pretty sick, I was hesitant to wait that long.
I know that much of the information we would like to have may only be available after testing of the embryos are done, and I also understand that at that point we may be left with many unanswered questions.
However, I would really feel better if I could speak to you- who are so familiar with my case and my history- even if only for a few minutes this week.
Please let me know if this is something we can arrange. I can be available by cell phone at almost any time this week.
A had an ultrasound that wasn't so good on Monday. She's got another on Thursday, when I am in (other office). I'd like to discuss the results with her right after she has the ultrasound. If you call me when the ultrasound is ready, you can have A take my call in an office so I can review the results with her and plan to do whatever is needed. I've CC:d A to this e-mail so she'll be expecting your call.So I am pleased that I will get to speak to him and that he is accommodating me. It makes a super hard situation a teensy bit easier.
