I started clomid this cycle (all of our fertility tests came back normal, but the doctor gave me the option anyhow since it's been almost a year and I took it). I won't know if it worked until about November 8th or so, but if it does, I'm a bit concerned about my endocrinologist.
I live in an area that doesn't have a lot of resources for high risk pregnancies, I have a high risk ob/gyn whose office is a little over an hour from where I live and my endo is 45 minutes away, there is an endo in town that I would actually rather have because I know he is one of the best and most experienced(I've heard this from any diabetic I've met in this town), but it takes almost 6 months to get into his practice, unless you use his partner, but you need a referral from your doctor. I don't have a GP, but my endo I really would like to leave because he doesn't seem very capable of taking care of me even while not pregnant, anytime he changes my treatment plan, basal rate, carb ratio, etc, he does so drastically, which usually causes the opposite problems, if I'm having highs, his change causes lows, if I'm having lows, his change causes highs and he just switched me to Apidra for one bottle and my sugar started sky rocketing after eating, then plateaus after about 3 hours without correction, or goes too low with correction.
My question is, should I risk being switched to the better endo and if I get pregant, ask to see the CDE in town if I can't get in to his or his partner's office right away(the CDE did say she would help me, she runs the insulin pump support group out here) and rely on her and my high risk ob/gyn, or just deal with this endocrinologist who I'm absolutely certain has never dealt with a type 1 diabetic pregnancy? If I actually want one with experience, I'd either have to drive across the bay to Baltimore or Annapolis which is 2-3 hours away, or quite possibly this new doctor.
