So, I had a 30 week checkup on Tuesday- everything was fine. Except it was with my new OB. My regular OB was recently "downsized" which sucked- no reason, just that the hospital wanted to make the department smaller and she's been there the longest and is highest paid. I did get about a month notice and had 2 appts with her before she left. But still.

I REALLY loved my former OB- she'd been my doctor for almost 10 years, supported me through 3 miscarriages, and aside from the first trimester with the RE, all of this pregnancy. And with everything that's gone on the last month- my mom's surgery, finding out my cat is in stage 3 kidney failure, stress at work, etc. I just lost it.

I started crying the moment I walked into the office. Was crying while providing a urine sample. Crying while they took my blood pressure. Tears streaming down my face while talking with the new OB>

I felt kind of crazy. But it honestly felt good just to let it out. Thankfully the new OB and all the nurses were very sweet and sympathetic.

Sorry to hear that you had to say goodbye to your OB. That really sucks that you're having to get to know someone new when you have had one that you loved so well. I was really scared when I had to find a new OB after having such a good birth experience with my first up in Alaska. But it all worked out great. I hope this OB is a great support for you as well. Hugs!

I bawled my eyes out when I moved away from Marsi's pediatrician. I mean just like you are describing. It is so hard to have sudden change especially with an awesome support person leaving.

Oh hugs. I can't imagine how I'd miss someone who took care of me through so much. I was sad to see my high risk doctor go after only a few months, much less years. I hope the new doctor is just as good.

I'm so sorry. I don't blame you for breaking down. I know our dr's become so close to us especially when you have to go through losses. I hope you can become to really like your new dr.

I'm so sorry Mel! That's really crappy that your OB left I can't even imagine and I'm sure I would be very upset as well. But I am glad that the nurses and the new OB were being nice and supportive. That's a great thing! It's definitely a good thing to let those emotions out! Hopefully you will feel better about the situation soon. Big (((HUGS)))

Thank you all for the sympathy I am still getting a kick out of how I was crying while peeing. Quite the release.

Sorry switching Dr's is so hard for you! I can't imagine having to go to another Dr. I'd be a mess too. It always feels good to let the emotions out. glad you were able to and that your new Dr and nurses were so supportive. I know how you feel about the crying. I end up laughing because I'm crying about things half the time.
