I ended up going with an OB this pregnancy, and I'm happy with that decision. We do have a decent CPM in this area, but I did have a hospital transfer with DS and this OB's practice is very crunch-friendly.

They did bloodwork on me (all good), but her practices doesn't do actual appointments with low-risk Mamas for appointments until 10 weeks unless there's a concern or issue. Is that usual?

Yes, typically 10-12 weeks you see the doctor but maybe paperwork and bloodwork appointment with nurse before.

I think I was hearing placenta or something because the only really higher hb I've found has been on the right and the other is 110-120. We've had a blizzard and most things are closed but I'll call in an hour . I doubt they closed and I've been worrying myself and just hoping baby is alive and well and cyst is smaller.

My OB is very non crunchy , but I understand because he does high risk, infertility and multiples. He's very good but if I'm low risk or lower, I prefer someone who will really support me in my birth desires.

I have my first midwife and early ultrasound appointment when I'll be about 10 weeks along.

Good luck, and again -- keep us posted! I hear you regarding the want for someone who will support you...hopefully you can find a provider who is in line with what you want.

And that makes sense re: appointments. I had the bloodwork, and will do intake with a nurse prior to seeing the OB on the 29th.

Ultrasound looked good, baby measures ahead with great heart beat. Cyst still there but they're not going to check it till mid pregnancy ultrasound anyway. Left a message with the midwives for a consult.

Glad everything was good news, Edelweiss!




Looks like I'm dropping out of this DDC, ladies. Started bleeding this morning, cramps all day and it's just getting worse. I've never had a miscarriage before, but it sure seems like this is it.
Hope the rest of you all have great pregnancies and healthy babies!

Steph Anie I'm so sorry to hear this. The lady who created this blog was a huge help to me during my 2nd miscarriage. She has a lot of good information here. http://lostinnocentsorthodox.blogspot.com

I'm not either, but it's truly some of the most practical advice out there . I think the unknowns are some of what makes miscarriages so horrible. Try to take care of yourself and drink and eat enough. I'm so sorry.

Hello, I'm Susan and am expecting (live) baby #4 on Sept 14 based on ovulation. Our last baby was born sleeping at 25 weeks 2 years ago on the 6th. Our first was born in the hospital as a water birth with midwives. Second and third were UC. We are planning a UC with this one also. We are thrilled for this rainbow baby but scared as we don't know the cause for our loss. Oh and I'm 41 so not a young mama at all. So today the 8th of Feb we are 8 weeks 5 days.

Congratulations. I'm not on Facebook, pregnant with my second, and a little bummed that no one seems to be posting here - Due September 2. Enjoy the new chapter coming in your life!
