i am meeting our new ob tomorrow<br><br>
he is known locally as a male midwife. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile"> he is very natural minded and very supportive of normal birth. he is the best recommended by the locals birth teachers, midwives, cnm and doulas.....<br><br>
i am really happy to get in with him, he is alone in his pratice, catches almost all his own babies and so on.... and is HARD to get in with -- he has recently cut his pratice back even more.<br><br>
ok here is why i am nerous....he used to be back up for the CNM that we used last time. like freinds. he is NOT her back up now, he stopped at some point during my preggo with Theo -- so March to Nov 05 -- as part of cutting back his pratice.....<br><br>
but CNM and I didn't have a great relationship -- i ended up not likeing her, and her tude at teh deliever showed it was pretty mutal.<br><br>
I am jsut scared -- as she called me all happy to tell me she hand delievered my records to him -- that she bad mouthed me.<br><br>
or at the very least he KNOWS i used her last time, and didn't go back this time and he will ask why i went form CNM care to a OB.....<br><br><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/redface.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Embarrassment"><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/redface.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Embarrassment">

Good luck and I hope it goes wonderfully! He sounds great! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/orngbiggrin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="orange big grin">

Appt was GREAT -- Dha nd I talked with him a long time<br><br>
-- went over all the gentic testing avaible since I am 35. he was well edicated and informaed and totally cool withour blanket refusal.<br><br>
Talk at lenght about T's pregancy, teh SGA, the forcepts, the 4th degree tear, the long labor the slow weight gain.<br><br>
WE GOT TO SEE THE BABY -- he did an in office US and the baby is measureing 11 weeks and 2 day -- which matches perfectly with my O date from POAS and charting -- I was so suprised -- i didn't expect to see the baby. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile"><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile"><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/loveeyes.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Loveeyes">: <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/loveeyes.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Loveeyes">:<br><br>
he is low key, but willing to talk at lenght about everything -- even asnwered a lot of questions about gentic testing AFTER we said we didn't want them. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile"><br><br>
Dh and I were both impressed and happy.<br><br>
after all the talking about Theo and his pregancy and birht -- i forgot to tell him we are still nurseing -- he didn't ask. oh well i will tell him next time -- not like it matters.<br><br>
it was a good appt<br><br>

do you think it matters i forgot to tell him T is still nurseing -- as in nurseing as much as some new borns ... ???<br><br>
i do NOT know why is spcaed it-- DH did too. We talked all about a zillion other things, mostly his pregancy and birth. He was at the babysitters and not there with us.<br><br>
I think i should have told the Doc -- if for no other reason -- so it doesn't look like i lied or left it out on purpose -- i didn't i am PROUD of nurseing my 17 month old and hoping to TN. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile"><br><br>
I will tell him in 4 weeks at my next appt --<br><br>
I will have T with me -- no babysitter<br><br>
But do you think it matters? like should I call and leave a messge for hgim telling him i forgot to tell him?<br><br>

I don't see why it matters at all. He'll figure it out at some point and it won't look like you were hiding it when your 17 mo babe just lifts your shirt and you don't even pause. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/winky.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Wink">
