So I finally got my BFP and want to call my OB practice and make an appointment. I want to see the HB, of course! However, I'm not sure the right place to call. Here's my thoughts, and I can't make sense of them. Maybe you guys can?

1. We're looking at moving about an hour away before my 1st tri is over. Should I even bother calling that OB's office?

2. I'm going to be 37 in a few weeks, which is considered "high risk"at this practice.

3. DS2 has a genetic condition (he's ok) that affected his umbilicus and fluid levels. This baby has a good chance of having the same problem, if s/he inherits the same condition. I was labeled high risk (for good reason) at the end of his pg, and I'm not sure they do "true" high risk there.

4. I don't know if I should just go straight to the maternal-fetal practice at the big hospital about 30 min from the new house? I don't know if I need them or not, since the genetic condition is rare.

5. I am considering just calling my GP, who can maybe recommend one or a regular practice where we're moving? She's going to want to see me anyway.

6. It's possible I'm just overthinking it ;)

Who should I call, I wonder?

Thanks! This has been going around and around in my head the last 24 hours, and I wasn't sure my post made sense.

You know, when it's written out it seems so obvious! I ended up meeting with some friends tonight, and though I didn't tell them about the BFP I did get a great referral for an OB office that is on the grounds of the big hospital. They do everything, and it sounds like what I am looking for.

Thanks for the help :) I'm just so freaked out that I really did see a line today, and can't seem to think straight!
