In terms of an OB, Peri etc, I have an appt with my family doc on the 12th to get a referral to one and probably will be in to see them much sooner than later. I will also be continually monitored throughout my pregnancy and my guess is I will have bi-weekly appts and blood work.
But I am also considered a high risk pregnancy so my case is a tad different than the norm.
Of course, I do need to go to the hospital on base to get a + pg test from them and my pregnancy profile, but even then they won't see me until 12 weeks. They're ridiculousy over booked (and don't like to refer out) so they won't see anyone until 12 or 14 weeks, unless of course there's a problem. That's the great thing about an entire Division just returning from a year long deployment-everyone's getting knocked up! They won't even admit you to L&D if you're less than 5 cms or you can still talk through contractions! Glad I'm staying home.
Anyway-totally got off subject there-so no, no prenatal so far.
Trish~mama to Kaelie 5/03, Amelia 12/13, and someone new coming 11/15, surro mama to Aidan 2/08 & Ellyss 6/09,
tonight is the open house (q and a session) with our first choice (cheaper) midwifery practice.
Had the u/s today. Now I need to figure out who I am goign to have for a mw since my amazing mw that was there for my last 2 babes moved away.
I'm hoping all goes well and we "click", or I'll be scrambling to find another CNM (since my insurance won't cover a lay midwife).
I got my insurance to cover my mw attented homebirth by threatening to change plans, and letting all the moms in my playgroups and online know that they don't care about a woman's right to give birth with her prefered practitioner. I was talking to the supervisor. SHe left me with just saying, I wish there was something I could do, and I got a call back first thing int he am saying they would cover it. I would fight it, unless you no longer have insurance?
