Correction: my ultrasound is 10/22, not 9/22.

Can you please cancel my appt for 8/28?

I cancelled it because, strangely enough, my mom made an appt with this same OB/GYN. This doc was completely unprofessional and suggested to my mom that she should have a hysterectomy because "nothing works anymore so you don't need it". : Plus my mom got a really bad vibe from her and when she went to get her records to transfer to another doc, her chart said that the patient agreed to the hysterectomy!!!!!

Um, yeah, nevermind. I'm guessing that doc won't be open to my VBAC attempt, no induction, go to 42 weeks, plan. So I'm off to find someone else.

Am I the only person here who hasn't seen someone yet? I'm 11 weeks now.

Leila that's horrible!

I had my first mw appointment yesterday and it went really well. I felt really comfortable with her and I felt involved in my own care which is important to me. It was mostly a talking appointment to go over what to expect in the coming months. She also drew some blood, took my blood pressure (which was excellent), and tried to hear for the baby's heartbeat using the doppler. Unfortunately we didn't get to hear it this time, but maybe next time. My protein and glucose urine dip was fine. My weight has dropped almost 2 pounds since I found out I was pregnant.

My next appointment is 9/17 and it's to meet the other midwife and to do a physical and some other stuff. I'll be 13w5days.

geez leila! I guess it's a good thing that your mom went first. Now you won't have to deal with all his crap. Wow.

Thanks guys! It really was horrible. . my mom said she was nicely dressed, very good looking, but didn't seem all that "with it", medically. Good riddance.

I have since found a midwife and I'm meeting with her on Tuesday, 9/4. We talked for a while today and we really clicked. So that's my good news for today!

I have an appt. with the CNM I do dual care with on 9/7. And then I have an appt. with my hb mw on 9/21. I need to go to the lab and get my blood drawn too. I am definitely not looking forward to that.

called MW--she is too far away so I have decided to UP so no appointments for me! This brings me great peace.

I had my first ob appt. yesterday. He just did an exam and basically said he had to refer me to another ob because he doesn't deliver anymore, all ok with me because I have only seen this guy one other time and didn't care too much for him, I got to request a woman this time, hopefully she'll be great. I had to get bloodwork done today, and I have 2 appts. next week for an u/s and a nurse's visit. Hopefully everything will be good.

Hi everyone! I had my first ob appt 8/22 everything went good. Had an ultrasound to establish a due date. I use the TCOYF software and got a due date of March 30 and the ultrasound showed March 27 so not bad. I did the blood work and a 24 hr urine protein test so he can stay on top of pre e if it does come back.

So my next appts are:

Cardiologist Sept 11 and I will be 11 wks and 5 days
OB Sept 20 and I will be 13 wks

I had my first midwife appt today and it was fabulous! She's so great! Eventhough I'm 12 weeks, we couldn't hear the heartbeat. Maybe next time. . .

Next appt is 9/25.

My ultrasound is still in the wrong place. It's listed under 9/22, but it's actually on 10/22.

I had my u/s on Wed. everything looks good and now my due date is 3-20, also had my first appt. with my new ob yesterday, she is very nice(so relieved), and said the baby looks good. The only problem I might be having is an enlarged heart which is why I am having difficulty breathing. So I need to see a cardiologist.

Next appts. are 9-20 nurse's appt and 10-4 with my ob

My next appointment is Oct. 10 and I'll be 17 weeks.
