New Doctor

I had my first visit with my new midwife yesterday and I love her. I think she's great. She actually explained things to me like what the pains are and why my hands keep falling asleep. I'm also excited about the fact that they do their u/s right there in the office. I never really liked have a tech do it and then send the results to the Dr. The thing I don't like is that they apparently only do 1 u/s too. Why is that? I'm so frustrated. I just have this overwhelming fear that something isn't growing right. I need to see my baby. How do I convey this to my midwife without her telling me "what you're feeling is normal, everything is fine." I think I'll go crazy in the next 6 weeks if I have to wait that long. I wish you could rent u/s machines like you can dopplers!

As for the good things at the appointment, the HB is at 169 and it took her a while to get the number because the baby kept kicking the doppler. It made me smile! I got my flu shot. Not fun and my arm still hurts, but so worth it! Let's see, what else, oh yeah she tested my urine and said I'm pregnant! Yeah! And that I don't have any infections which is nice to hear. I go back in 2 week and most likely they are going to offer the Triple Screening if I want it. I'm still so up in the air about this. B doesn't want it because he feels it's just something else to worry about. But I'm already starting to worry so I'm leaning more towards getting it done. I just don't know. What are your opinions?

I think we are going to start our baby registry in the next few weeks. Mainly because I know our parents want to get us stuff for the baby for Christmas and I want to make sure they have an idea of the things we need. The part I hate is that if we have to wait for 20 weeks, it's only going to be 2 weeks before Christmas. Oh well I suppose I just have to deal, even if it does make me want to cry!

  1. Congrats on all the good news!

    I can tell through your words that you want to meet this baby sooooo badly! You will in 180 days (give or take) right? Try to enjoy the rest of the pregnancy now that you're feeling better. And your husband too, (smiles!).
