Game Plan?

I saw a fertility specialist yesterday.  He's very nice (albeit a little soft-spoken).  He's the second doctor to think I have PCOS & will do an ultrasound at my next mid-cycle to determine yes or no.  He gave M and I a lot of information (and advice).  He wants M to provide a sample (bc of course he does).  I almost laughed bc I knew how much he would hate hearing that.  But at least there's no crazy directions on how to do it.  Basically, get as much in the cup as you can.  He then sent me for blood-work where I'm pretty sure the vampire pathologist tried to suck me dry. Nine vials of blood.  The most I've ever had drawn before has been 3.  There's a reason why I don't donate blood; I tend to pass out.  I almost laughed when I saw one of the tests was for chlamydia.  M and I have only ever been with each other, so it's not like we'd have ever had the chance to contract an STD.  But I guess they don't know that and have to assume the worst about everyone?  Aaand I found out the blood-work alone costs over $2000.  I'm REALLY hoping insurance covers some of it.

I also finally made an appointment with a therapist.  I talked to her on the phone, and she was very understanding of what I'm going through.  I see her in a week and a half.
