My insurance just got approved so I called to make an appointment and the soonest I can be seen is March 29th. I'll be 11 weeks. That's not even seeing the doctor, that's just the consultation. Seeing the doc will be 1-2 weeks after that. But I did tell them I need an NT scan around that time and they said that wasn't a problem either with them or with the peri doc. Of course, they closed at noon today so I'll have to call back Monday.
Starting care at 11 weeks wouldn't be so bad in a normal situation. But since it's my first pregnancy after a loss I just want to be seen, uh, now. I'm so glad I'm having friends come in for a week starting next Saturday, that'll help time go by faster.
Can you go to a neighboring town? Last successful pregnancy I had I had my first trimester appointments an hour away because no doctors were accepting new patients for months in my town. It's a small town! How many ladies could be freaking pregnant?!
We are a medium size city, but the only one this size within 3 hours. I could've gone to my other office and gotten in sooner since they know my history, but I had my reasons to leave them. This new doctor comes pretty recommend... so I couldn't probably go to one that wasn't as well known but it's a scary chance to take. I'm just over taking that chance, I want to *know* my doctor is going to be good. This was one of 2 of the recommended doctors. It's weird because I actually called the office last pregnancy because I wanted to switch them but it just didn't work out--- they could of had me in the next week. I guess it's timing too. Rats... too bad I didn't get approved sooner. I'm sure I'll survive. At least getting the NT scan done when I need to isn't going to be an issue, so that's good.
