Blast Off

May 6th.

I got a call from the office of reproductive psychiatrist that my shrink put a referral in for. I was on a cancellation list and a date came up this Thursday, which I took. She called back three minutes later saying she made a mistake - that she didn't realize the referral was for a specific doctor in the clinic - and I guess she felt bad, so booked me into the first spot this doc is available. May 6th. Less than 2 weeks.

This is my appointment for my "pre-pregancy medication consult". This is the date where I will really get to dig into the details of what specific medication means what during pregnancy. What can I come off, what else is not worth it to my health and the future baby's? This is the big question - is it even possible to do? Will there need to be major changes in my medication before we even start trying, or do we make changes as it all happens? So many questions...

I'm excited for numerous reasons, not the least because things have felt a little stagnant lately. Devon is focused on other things and we're trying to get the renos done to sell the apartment and baby-talk would probably just throw her (us?) over the edge. I get it. I don't like it, but I get it.

Another thing I did today, which is big for us, is actually make an appointment with a financial adviser/planner, also for May. Our financial priorities are so vastly different in this relationship and have always been, and it as been getting to me more and more lately. With Devon potentially going back to school next year (yay) and us potentially going through with TTC this year (another yay), we have some serious figuring to do. Hopefully this meeting will help us make money less of a horrific topic to talk about.

So, again, things are moving. Slowly, but I have faith this is the launch of all things active. I will also be doing my HSG test early May, so that will be another thing on the list. We still don't have a time line, and I would love a concrete plan, but I'll take this. Today, I'll take this.

  2. Yay and yay again! I hope the appointment goes well and that you are happy with the plan you work out with your doctor. I also hope the financial stuff goes well--it can be so hard to agree on money, especially when you have different priorities for what to do with it. You're being so proactive, though, I can't help but think it will all work out smoothly!

  7. I think things are moving faster than you think. At least it seems that way to me. Just keep on your path.
