My Reproductive Nightmare

Break Ups Are Always So Hard

Dr. SoNice broke up with me today. He has been my OB/GYN for almost two years now. He seems to think we are not filling each other’s needs anymore. It’s really sad because we’ve had such good memories together. My favorite was when he told me the fetus that had been growing inside of me for 12 weeks was dead. Yeah, THOSE were good times.

Alas, all good things must come to an end. And he’s right, he just can’t give me what I want – a nine-month pregnancy leading to the birth of a child. He’s tried all he can do – but I am just too needy. We promised we would get together again in March for my yearly Pap – but until I successfully carry a pregnancy past the first trimester? He wants nothing to do with me.

He has set up a blind date for me and another doctor. We call him Dr. Popular because he’s the guy all the girls want. He will see me in a month. Unfortunately – he is requiring a lot of tests for me to take between now and then. Something about a possible hostile cervical environment (even my cervix is a bitch), thyroid problems, low progesterone levels, and/or uterine scarring. Dr. Popular wants to know everything about me before our first date. He’s not big on flying blind.

So. All in all? I think it’s going to be a good relationship. I hear he’s really young, which is good. I’ll be the Demi to his Ashton. Without all of that Kabala crap.

  1. *sigh* at least he was man enough to admit that he wasn’t satisfying the need. Hopefully this next guy gives you everything you’ve wanted….

  2. Well, in a month or two, make sure to call the old dr. and tell him how great things are with the new dr. – he’ll be totally jealous πŸ™‚

  3. I’ve noticed that docs who are all up in your face is sometimes the best doc πŸ™‚ I’ll keep my fingers crossed that this relationship is a better one than your last πŸ˜‰

  4. so, while all of what you wrote makes me snigger, i must say that i am keeping you in my thoughts. it’s got to be a rough time, and i’m glad that you are at the point with it all that you can joke about it .. none the less, it’s gotta be rough. good luck!

  5. I feel your pain girl, my doctor retired with out any notice to me. And we had 2 children together, I thought that MEANT something to him!

  6. I bet he has warm hands and warm tools, otherwise he wouldn’t be so popular with the girls.
    Good luck with the new guy, hopefully your parts will have a crush on him and behave like they’re supposed to.

  7. Good luck with everything in the future!
    My sister-in-law is having problems too, so she had to go to a different doc and get all the tests done. She said it was annoying but it’s over now so they’re on their way to *hopefully* having a baby!

    I’ll keep my fingers crossed for you. πŸ™‚

  8. I’ve been ‘lurking’ for a bit so I want to say good luck and relax – usually does the trick. I’ll lend you my fertility for the next year.

  9. I hope it works out for you. You know Hunter is my third baby. I buried one, misscarried one and then it was him. It took ten years to have him, and now I can’t have anymore since I have lupus. So we’re going to adopt–it’s an option I know you’re not real crazy about right now…’s still an option.

    Big Hugs, because I know you need them.

  10. Here’s hoping there’s a reason they call him Mr. Popular! Maybe he’ll be the BEST. DOCTOR. EVER.

    Could be.

  11. I only wanna add… Zoot, You are all class Lady :).. and I really mean that I am not being silly or sarcastic… I’ve know alot of people in my life with similar problems… and I’ll tell ya… None of them ever dealt with those problems with the strength and level of class and dignity that you are handling them with.

    Keep hanging in there and kicking those doctors butts, lol… I’m rooting for you!!

  12. (FYI, this is M formerly of
    Good luck with Dr. Popular. And if it is indeed low progesterone levels you’ll be dealing with… I can give you my sympathy if you have to commence arse-poking with long needles. πŸ™‚
    Anyway… here’s hoping that Dr. Popular is all you hoped for. πŸ˜‰
