Introducing Doctor Jackass!

Ok so my day 13 appt was today (for my new followers, I get pulled on on Day 13 because my RE's office missed ovulation in January).  Honestly...with all the bad news I have heard lately...I wasn't expecting much from my visit today.  Call it being cautious...call it being skeptical...call it whatever you want...but I was gearing up for the water works. 

The office was NOT crowded today...I repeat the office was NOT crowded today! 

My favorite girl was there to draw my blood (the only one who doesn't bruise me to the point where I look like I was beat up).  Only one stick ....done correctly!

And a new doctor!

Now the place where we go the doctors rotate morning monitoring days.  I think there are maybe nine doctors total.  Until today, I haven't met one I didn't like....

INTRODUCING DR. JACKASS!

Dr. Jackass came in and did my ultrasound.  There was a 29mm follicle on the right.  Now I am thinking...29 MM....HOLY CRAP!  I normally have in the low 20's when we trigger. 

He says "Trigger today...IUI tomorrow and Sunday" to which I reply "Wait..what?!" 

My doctors office has always triggered right before the first IUI and then I was brought back the second day for the next IUI (but of course, that has never worked before either...because I am not pregnant).

I asked the doctor why we were triggering without the IUI.  You would have think I asked him what color his underwear was...or what he ate for dinner last wednesday with the way he looked at me.  HOW DARE I ask him a question?!?!  Dr. Jackass simply stated "Go talk to the morning nurse, she'll explain it".

Oh ok doctor...I am so sorry...I was under the impression that I was PAYING YOU for your services.  hundreds of dollars for an office visit and I can't even get two minutes for an answer.

I would LOVE to point out that he had two minutes to RUN to the nurse and explain the situation.  Apparently....my follicle needs to TURN?

So Nurse "You have spider veins" (which she needed to state twice...just in case my husband who was sitting right there didn't hear her the first time) gave me the trigger shot and we are set up for 6 am tomorrow and Sunday. 

While we are talking about time...6:20 was the LATEST appointment I could get on a weekend...when they are open til 10!  Something sound wrong here to anyone else?

P.S.  I hit my dirty thirty blog follower goal!!  YAY!  I'm gonna be doing a FAB giveaway soon...keep your eyes open for it!

I hate dr.'s like that. I had one in Atlanta who was rude. Ugh!

Wow, what a jerk! I think doctors do tend to forget that they are providing a service. Would it have been that bad to give a short explanation? No it wouldn't. Doctors like that bust my buttons. I'm sorry hon!

New follower here. What a jerk! I hate that attitude, your paying him for his service, he should answer your questions.

dude what in the hello kitty is wrong with that doctor? I am sorry he didn't spend any time with you to answer questions...wow. I hope that the appointments go well for you!! *baby dust*

Katie said...

I think "Doctor Jackass" is a perfect nickname. You have every right to ask as many questions as you want. In fact, he should be encouraging it. I'm sorry you had to deal with this guy. Good luck this weekend!

OMG! My last RE was so that way! I hated that man and the nurses and office staff that came with him. My new dr is Dr. Heaven! She's always says "go team!" when we make follies :)

What a jerk! So, I have a question-do they time your trigger and IUI just based on your follie sizes? The reason I ask is b/c my old RE based it off LH levels and follie sizes.

And I hope that you get a BFP with this one!
