I'd ask

Response to OB advice?

how experienced they are with dealing with infertility patients. For me, that's my biggest gripe with my current OB. I chose him years ago, (when I thought getting PG was going to be easy), based on hospital privileges, the fact that he's a solo practice, and my GYN at the time also supported me selecting him. Fast forward years later and I'm PG after this crazy battle and naturally a nervous nelly and I find that my OB (despite me being very frank with him on my needs) doesn't get it. What I once saw as a positive - calm, laidback demeanor - I now see as frustrating. I've also seen a different side of him as an OB vs. as my GYN. Luckily - my RE (Dr. Check/Cooper) kept me under care until 11 weeks so I was getting all the warm and fuzzy treatment from them.

Is there a reason why you wouldn't use your exisiting GYN? Does he/she not OB?

Are you in Boston proper or outskirts? I have an IVF friend who is also a GYN (she's not OBing) and she's up there. I could ask her for a reco.

As for the NT, I'd responded on a prior post re: my experience - not sure if you saw.
