Doctor's Appointments

So I called my ob/gyn's office yesterday to make an appointment for a pap & pelvic. Not that it's my favorite thing to do, but it does have to be done each year. And I'm overdue - I should have had this done back in April.

The soonest they could get me in was JULY 23rd. And, I have to drive 35 miles for the appointment (once upon a time I could get them done here in town). This, to me, seems a bit ridiculous, especially since I wouldn't even be seeing my regular doctor (I'd be seeing a "temp" doctor) and I don't want anything fancy - just your standard girly appointment.

So I stopped in at my family doctor's office this afternoon to see if I could get in to see him any sooner. Guess what. June 30. Only 2 weeks away (instead of 7) and right here in town. I guess I'll be calling to cancel that ob/gyn appointment. I wasn't going to see her any more after that one anyway, seeing as we're moving at the end of August.

Which leads me to - going back on the pill. I don't really want to, but with all of the stress and excitement of moving, we're not really TTC right now anyway. It's much better for me (and my sanity) to go back on the pill during this time so that I can know exactly when AF will arrive and how long she'll stay. Irregularity is a nuisance at best. This way, after we're moved and settled, I can start again with my new doctors, hopefully not having to start completely over with the procedures, etc.
