I actually didn't realize how long it's been since my last post, but waaaay too long! As you can see I haven't quite felt like myself the last couple months. This little girl decided to surprise us shortly after Christmas and it took us a while to get over the initial shock of it. However, I'm past the "sick and tired" phase and finally getting to my favorite part of being pregnant.
My biggest adventure so far in this pregnancy? Finding a doctor. I had put off finding a doctor since we moved because I LOVED my doctor in Vegas. I explained to husband that aside from him, the most important person in my pregnant life is my doctor. Right ladies? Since I clearly couldn't put it off anymore, I made an appointment with Dr #1. My first impression when he walked in the room...he looked like a slightly older George McFly from Back to the Future. Ok, no big deal I can be cool with that. However, he wasn't very nice and had some definite weirdness to him, so I decided this wasn't the doctor for me. Husband doing McFly impressions on the way home, kinda sealed the deal. That night, I started scheming how I could pull off having my Vegas doctor deliver this baby.
I had picked doctor #2 for my next monthly appointment. He was very nice, but made some strange comments about his lack of patients and seemed nervous about doing my c-section surgery. Hmmmm. So I took my nervous self home once again, cried (yes I'm pregnant), and tried to figure out how I could plan spontaneously going into labor while just happening to be in Vegas.
Aside from feeling like a crazy lady, husband was convinced I wasn't going to be happy until I found Vegas Dr's twin. In a last ditch effort to find a doctor before running back to Vegas, I saw Dr #3 - yes 3. This one was a referral from another Dr who had a great reputation, but didn't take my insurance. The word was Dr #3 was a great doctor and surgeon. So off I went with NO expectations. I saw him last week and he was completely normal and confident. THANK HEAVENS!! He wouldn't have understood, but I sooo wanted to hug and kiss him after my appointment. Needless to say, I slept well that night.
Now hopefully it's just smooth sailing til August. So don't be surprised if you see baby posts for a while now;)
