On bed rest.....

Thanks Ladies,

I did end up going in. I was calling my doctors office to ask them and the receptionist said I was just about to call you. They never cancelled the appointment I had set for today at 10 even though I went in Tuesday so they told me to go in. She said she would rather me go in and get checked than to be stressed all weekend until Tuesday.

All is well. Baby measuring at 8 weeks even today. Nice strong heartbeat (click to listen) that I was able to record on my cell phone. RE looked at my cervix which he said is closed and that is good. He is stopping the Lovenox and put me on 5 days of bed rest. Back again on Tuesday.

Thanks for the comments about the Ob/GYN. I made a few calls yesterday and oh my goodness....this is gonna be harder than I thought! Now I do have a current Ob/GYN that has always done my papsmears but I didn't want to go back to him. One he is so far away and well that was the main reason. I called one place yesterday and I asked how often are monitoring appointments done and she oh we do one at 20 weeks. I was like ONE and she was like yeah. So I briefly went over my history and asked her how would things be handled if I was considered high risk. She was like well we have doctors that deal with high risk and they may send you to another place next door for an ultrasound because they have better equipment. I was like oh boy um okay. Then I asked if the doctor I choose will be the doctor that sees me at my appointments and deliver me. She said oh no, we have 9 doctors and we like you to see all of them because any one of them can deliver you depending on who is on call. Okay time to end that call...thank you and bye-bye!

After calling like 8 places I think I found one that I may like that will be catering to me and my situations and I made an appointment for the end of May around 11 weeks with them and will see how that goes.

Glad all is well. Sorry about the bedrest. The had me stop baby aspirin when I was bleeding and it helped a bunch. Hopefully stopping the Levonox will do it. Yahoooo an OB appt!!!

Im glad you made the calls, i told you it would not be easy to find a OB/GYN that would fulfill your wishes. I just hope this one you found is THE one. I love hearing the HB. Im so excited for you darling. I love you and I love that baby so much already! Cant wait to meet her. smooches!!

I'm glad you are resting!!!

I'm also glad you called OBs. We were really lucky. Ours is in a practice with one other woman and they dont really share patients, just office space. And he was recommended by our midwife. We love him and he's always seen us right away, even when he's crazy busy. Did you make an appt for a consult so that you can see and talk to him, or are you doing that on top of your first prenatal with him?

Sending positive vibes and hoping all is well!!!

Did you think of having a midwife instead? I chose mine because I hate waiting at the obgyn and midwifes give you way more attention (mine take about 4-6 pg woman per delivery month while Drs have hundreds) my midwife always gives me full hour, dr gave me ten minutes and he was done. They work with drs in case tehre is high risk as well and they can definitely order u/s too. And bonus: they will be in delivery teh whole time !!! Dr will only come last 10 minutes usually, when the baby is alrady almost out. That was a huge huge issue for me to decide what care to get ...
