Rang up y/day and scheduled my '20 week' ultrasound, for January 29th - I'll be 19w2d (I had an u/s with Gab at 19w1d, so will be interesting to see the similarities in measurements!). It's a Friday, so my Mum can go, and I've told my Dad he can go if he wants to, but I think he thinks it's too much of a 'girly' moment LOL... I'd love him to go, but won't hold it against him if he doesn't (he does have work as well)..
Got home y/day & my first high risk ob appt had arrived in the mail! February 4th is the big day, and I'm feeling more nervous about THAT, than the big u/s! I have no idea what to expect, and just hope they're 'gentle' with me... I've only ever seen a midwife & are used to their style of care... an ob is a little daunting.....
You know, I can only speak for the OBs at my practice (and there are a lot of them), but they are all really awesome. For example, they have all been amazing when it comes to my anxieties about this pregnancy, because my last pregnancy ended in stillbirth, caused completely by my diabetes. We lost Ethan at 18 weeks, so I said that I'd feel better if my anatomy scan was at 17 weeks, instead of 20, and the doctor immediately agreed. And my OB is really respectful of my wishes, all of them are, no one tells me what to do at all. They really respect my choices. I think you will be surprised at how cool OBs can be.
thanks for that Rebecca... I'm SURE that I will be surprised by how awesome the ob's are... I guess that because I have a m/w, I've paid attention to all the "why ob's suck & mw's rock" propaganda, and need to change my mindset somewhat.
One good thing is that it means I"m going to meet the obstetric team, who will be performing my c/s, well in advance
