Seeing the Doctor

First off, I have to apologize for all of the snow envy I've been passing around on the blogs. We finally have snow again (the first substantial snowfall since December 9th!). Mr. JB is ready to shoot me! He hates the white stuff, while I absolutely love it. It's the time of year when I REALLY NEED A SNOW DAY. 

So this afternoon I'm going to see my Napro doc. I'm concerned about two things: I took F.emara without her go-ahead (but she did give me the prescription, she just didn't tell me to fill it!) and I also want to be tested for MTHMFR. My last two periods have been quite clotty and the last one was really painful. I don't know how familiar she is with clotting disorders, but I think it would be better to rule it out and to treat it. 

Is there anything else that you would suggest that I ask when I see her today?

In cycle news: I'm Peak +11 today and I've been so mean to my class! I'm also exhausted. 

I'll post more when I get back from my appointment! 


  1. Yah for being p+11, having a snow day and getting to see your doctor for some new ideas :)

    Sounds like things are really moving and shaking up there!

    Good things are coming, enjoy the snow! I would love a snow day, I just live in the wrong part of the world to have too much snow!

  2. I'm just starting to research this all myself so no advice, but I hope the doctor's appointment goes well and you get a lot of information.

  3. One snow day = okay. 5 snow days + No end in sight = going stir crazy! Good luck at the doctor's.

  4. Hope the appointment goes well!

  5. I'm glad to hear that you're getting some of the white stuff - and enjoying!

    Good luck at the doctor's apointment. Keep us posted.

  6. It's probably too late (bummer!) but I did want to say if you're going to get the test for MTHFR, may as well also get some of the other common clotting issues tested, like Factor V Leiden, Protein C and Protein S deficiency, Antithrombin III, Factor VIII, and PAI-1. It's far from a complete thrombophilia workup, but it'll give you some insight (especially if one or some come back with mutations).
    I have a few clients that only have the Factor V, but I am convinced this one alone is VERY detrimental to fertility.

  7. Hope the appointment went well. You need to move to a place that gets a real snow fall (there is no snow here!). Even when it does snow it is just a wee sprinkle. Go to nfld. See a snow storm :)
