Also trying to work up courage to call Dr. C.heck

I had a consultation with him over a year ago and now I need to ask for a callback. Will this be okay? I have been scared to call and putting it off. Meanwhile I am not on p-support or doing any of the things I know he will prescribe. As of now I have only paid for the initial consult from over a year ago so this makes me nervous to call. Thx.

Well, what's the worst that could happen?

They might say look, you'll need to pay another consult fee, hopefully a smaller one. This isn't peanuts but it is compared with (a) a monitored cycle, (b) IUI or IVF, not to mention (c) the cost of the baby gear you are going to have to buy once you get close to term. wink.gif

I did a consult with Check and it was life-changing. Do it!!

Lol, I've just turned into a nervous wreck and everything is stressing me out. I will call them in the morning! I would be glad to pay, what I was afraid of is coming across like I'm asking for too much after just one consult.

I got your book on my kindle and can't wait to read it, thanks so much for putting it out there and so good to see you on this board!!!!
