26 days until I see my baby again. Ugghh how do I go from every week to 4 weeks. That sucks.
The appointment with the new Ob/GYN went well.
The vitals girl ask if I had any issues going on, spoke about my SCH and the spotting. She immediately says without letting me finish "oh, spotting is normal I can't believe they didn't tell you that." So my guards immediately go up. I explained to her that its more than spotting at times although it does remain dark brown. So from that point on I was kind of iffy of the place.
Went and gave blood then was waiting to be seen.
The Midwife came in. She was nice. We spoke about my history and all that has been going on and she said we're going to classify you as high risk. Not so much because of what you're going through but because of what you had to go through to get here. She said with a high risk label you get more attention and taken care of with extra care. That made me feel good. She also said they will be referring me to a Perinatologist for more monitoring which I was also thrilled about because I know the check the baby with more ultrasounds and keep a closer eye on the cervix and stuff. I asked how often I would be monitored and she said, we will check you every 4 weeks until 32 weeks I think she said then it goes to every 2 weeks. She said however you will be seeing the Perinatologist as well and they will see you once ever 4 weeks so you'll be having an appointment about every 2 weeks for the entire time or until the Perinatologist feels that there is no longer a need to continue to see them.
I didn't actually meet the Ob/GYN however it was also marked on my information that I'm to see Dr. Brown only because of being high risk. The midwives only do those that are not high risk and Dr. Brown handles the high risk patients. I have an appointment with him on June 23rd at which time I'll get an ultrasound and then get the referral to the Perinatologist.
The midwife said we're not going to be able to check for the heartbeat because we can't hear it until after 12 weeks. DH make a smirking noise under his voice and the Midwife asked what was wrong. He was like she listens to the heartbeat every night already. I told her yeah I was able to find it at 9 weeks and she said that's good, you all must have the good Doppler.
So all and all, I left feeling okay after speaking with the midwife. Had to remind myself not to put too much weight into what the vitals chic said because she's just that the vitals chic.
Oh yeah Midwife said that she wanted me to start looking at some birthing classes starting at 20 weeks and the hospital I'm going to deliver at offers them for free. Wow that's in only 9 weeks...where is this time going?!?
