My old OB/GYN that I loved closed her office in November. At the time, I wasn't thinking we were going to have another baby, so I had my records transferred to my family doctor who can take care of the normal GYN stuff.


If this pregnancy had been planned, I'd have gotten a doctor beforehand. But...it's not and I didn't, so I don't have a doctor. I'm working on getting referrals from the people I go to church with and stuff, but right now I'm doctorless. And it's starting to freak me out more than a little.

So far everything seems okay, and I've got most of a bottle of zofran left from the end of my pregnancy with Allison, but I really need a doctor quickly!!


And everyone around me says "Oh you've got time." They just don't understand, that it's not that I'm expecting something to wrong, I just like the comfort of having someone to take care of me in case it does. (Like with Allison when I woke up to gushes of blood at about 7 weeks. I was up before the office was open, but you bet the moment 8am hit I was on the phone!)

I'm sorry, that must be really hard. For me early pregnancy weeks were the most nerve-wracking, so it must be difficult to be without a provider at this time. I hope you find someone very soon!

I got a couple referrals from ladies at church today. Hopefully I'll be able to get in soon, if only for a script for zofran (since I'm only 4 weeks tomorrow! lol)

Good Luck. I hope you find a good dr. I know I would be lost without my dr. Having a dr is important but having one you like is even more important.

I always do. I start feeling nauseated at conception basically (2 dpo this time), and start vomiting uncontrollably sometime between 5 & 6 weeks. I have most of a bottle leftover from my last pregnancy, so I'm okay for a bit. But I need to get in quickly.

oh no, I hope you find a doc that can get you in quickly! If not, perhaps you could call your old doc and ask that they call one of the new ones to try and squeeze you in faster?
