You went to see your new Allergist for the first time.
The receptionist at Doctor Ragweed’s office hands you the New Patient Form and you sit down to fill it out. You check off all the NO columns until one question stops you.
Are you Pregnant? (yes) (no)
You are in your 7,000th two week wait again so technically, you could be pregnant. How do you answer that question? You chew on the back of the pencil as you ponder your answer. You can’t circle YES because you know you probably aren’t pregnant but you can’t rule out NO just yet. It’s too early to test and you still have hope right? You think about adding another MAYBE column to the answer…
Are you Pregnant?
(well, technically I could be. My breasts are sore but I don’t know for sure)
(I’d like to be pregnant)
(Can I get back to you on that answer?)
(Can I just check yes anyways?)
Instead, you leave the question blank and start to fill out the ‘What medications are you taking’ portion of the form. How do you spell Progesterone Vaginal Suppositories again? Damn Doctor’s forms. Way to mess with an infertile’s head.
