I love my new Ob office. I am so happy I followed my heart and mind to change doctors. Our appointment was at 9 am and we didn't get done until after 11am. The only thing I wish they would have done is a ultrasound. I met with a nurse and one of their physician assistant. They took my history and Dh's history. Went over a lot of paper work. The physician assistant then took me back to an exam room. She did a pap smear and tried to find the baby's heartbeat on a doppler. She couldn't find the heart beat on the doppler but she could hear the placenta. I know it early to hear the heartbeat on the dopper at 8 weeks. I must have looked worried though. The physician assistant said don't worry. She said my uterus is growing the way it should be and its the size of 8 to 9 weeks pg. She changed my due date from May 21st to May 19th. I think I am going to stay with the 21st though until I have my next ultrasound with the highrisk Ob in two weeks. I feel better after talking to her and meeting some of the people in the office. There is 5 doctors in this practice and I will get a chance to meet all 5 of them.

When the Physician Assistant was trying to find the heartbeat she was talking to the baby. She said come on little baby everyone wants to hear your heartbeat. I thought that was cute. She said everything is fine. I go back to see them in 4 weeks. Which I will be in the second trimester then. I am confused who is going to be most of the testing and ultrasounds. Them or the high risk Ob. I guess I will fine out more in two weeks.

Thank you for all the thoughts and prayers ladies.

Glad you had a good appointment and like your doctor. It's really important to have a doctor you like because it's harder to trust one that you don't.

Yeah 8 weeks is still early to hear it on a doppler...probably even if you are thin as a rail lol. They could barely find the HB on me at my 12 week appt...but I am a bigger person.

Can't wait till you get your u/s!!

Aww I'm sorry you didn't get to hear the heart beat, but it sounds like everything else went wonderfully. Sounds like you have a wonderful team of drs and nurses around you.

Glad you liked them!

For the short time I saw a regular OB in addition to the high risk doctor- most stuff was done at the high risk doctor. I dropped the regular OB and stuck with the high risk dr.
