A new path to our little one...

Well, we are FINALLY going to see an RE (fertility Dr.) Our appointment is Tuesday, July 7th. For those that don't know us IRL, we had been told previously that we would not be able to find an RE willing to work with a same-sex couple in our area. We got a card from our OB/GYN at the beginning of the year and decided we wanted to try with the acupuncture alone before we went this more expensive and more invasive route. When I first called to set-up the consult visit, I was SOOOO nervous because the number I called said it was for the Nashville Fertility Center and I was just waiting on them to return my message and tell me how they couldn't help us. 
After a couple of hours of filling out paperwork on-line and playing a little phone tag with the scheduler, I'm happy to say that she told me they will consider us "a couple" and I had to fill-out initial paperwork for Joy as well, even though she isn't the one who will carry. A little strange to me, but maybe that's the best way they've figured out to deal with our situation in their office. HEY, I'm fine with it, as long as they help us have our baby!! :)
I have plenty of friends on the message boards who have used an RE to help get pregnant. I think I have a clue of what to expect, but the first visit with him is still nerve-racking all the same. 
So, I'll be back on to update our next steps when we've finished that initial visit. I don't want to speculate now because I don't know how aggressive he will want to be until we meet. 

Hope everyone has a WONDERFUL 4th of July!!
