I had my first real appointment today (I had one a few weeks ago with just the nurse, for pregnancy confirmation).

I picked my office/midwife based on a friends recommendation, so I had never been to them before. That always makes me nervous, I tend to be a bit doctor picky (a bad bedside manner drives me insane). I am SO pleased with the choice already. I apologized in advance for the many stupid questions I would likely ask and got "that's what I'm here for! Never apologize for wanting to be and stay informed.." so she made me feel comfortable from the start.

Not much happened (your basic pee, weight, blood pressure, etc) but she spent over an hour with me, which I thought was awesome. Talking, answering questions, etc. H came and tagged along for the first visit, and she even spoke directly to him and asked if he had any questions.. we just really liked her a lot.

Made the pregnancy seem so much more real!

I am very picky too, and this is one of those times that you absolutely want to be!

I love my doctor as well, I am so glad that you like yours, it makes the pregnancy so much more pleasant!

Yay for an awesome first appointment!!! That's so great that you are picky with your doctors. It's really sad when women get suckered into bad OBs and then they feel committed and that they can't leave (speak from experience and paid for it! ) So, congrats on a great first appointment with a great practice!!!

Thank you for my beautiful siggy Vicki!

See my growing belly!

That's great. I hate my current insurance so I'm kind of nervous about going.
