Then I can rest. Ugh. Phone consult in to the nurse who may be able to fit me in somewhere earlier.. Ugh. My OB in Germany was so understanding and did everything they could to ease my mind. I hate starting over end rant.
Is there any way you can switch doctors? That does seem like a long time given your medical record.


AFM: I had my first appointment today. It is really early as I'm only 5 weeks but they took a thyroid panel to make sure the ol' roid is still tickin and not doing crazy things. I will get the results within the week. Next appointment isn't until 4 more weeks on February 20th.

Sometimes you have to demand. I did that at Womack. I had 5 pregnancies at Bragg, 1 stillborn, 2 healthy boys & 2 losses. I learned to pitch a fit.

I did! I was able to be seen yesterday! Beautiful fetal pole measuring 7w+3d and 150hbp nice and strong, now I can finally enjoy this pregnancy! All I needed was reassurance that the baby was/is growing. And the staff was great! So relieved!

Re: Appointments?

I just joined in - was in August group. Dd had her appt and ultrasound yesterday and they moved her date back 4 days, so now she's due in September. I had her join the forum, so hopefully she'll jump in on this discussion.

She's due with her first on September 4th.

Re: Appointments?

Hi All! I'm new to the group, so trying to get caught up!

I've already had 3 appointments! The first was at 6 weeks 4 days and we got to hear the baby's heartbeat! One of the most AMAZING things I've ever heard in my life! Our second was at 8 weeks 4 days...got to hear the heartbeat and more pictures! And the 3rd was when I switched over to my OBGYNs office. I didn't see my doc, but I saw his nurse...and we peeked at the baby again! ;-)

My next appointment is next Thursday, March 7th. This will be my first appointment with my OB. Yay! Sooo excited!!!
