Thanks! I swore I responded to you already, I think I forget to post sometimes...
My OB/GYN put a bump in the road today, I needed a medical clearance paper stating that I was PHYSICALLY capable of carrying a child filled out by her so I brought it in to her. My OB and General Practitioner are connected and so all medications and procedures that one does or prescribes, the other can see.
In February I was having a serious issue with hives so my GP prescribed Hydroxyzine which is pretty similar to Benadryl but CAN also be used for anxiety. Even the label states "Take 1 every 6 hours as needed for itching and hives". Well, my OB wrote on my clearance paperwork that I'd be a good candidate physically as long as I get off of my anxiety medication... I'm no longer even taking the drug, I haven't taken it in at least 4 months. So now I have to get another clearance letter from my GP stating that this drug is not for anxiety and that she also thinks that I am physically capable of being a surrogate.
This OB was new for me and she kind makes me uncomfortable and I had been considering changing doctors, I now thing that I will in fact be changing because this is just a huge annoyance!
