I registered with a family doctor today and was so impressed with and moved by her empathy. After the obligatory “how much alcohol do you drink per week?” I joked that it depended on the time of the month! She was so understanding as we discussed how hard the waiting and not knowing is. So the good news is that she can refer us to a fertility clinic for tests etc but we have to have been trying for at least a year. Hopefully it won’t come to that but at least in a few months we can start that process if needed. And more importantly, I feel listened to and understood. It’s amazing what the words “Oh that must be really hard” can mean!
