I can't believe that it's been six weeks since Carter was born. I have my post pardon check up tomorrow. I don't know why I'm struggling so much with the thought of this appointment. Iím nervous to sit in the waiting room with all the happy (non-damaged) pregnant women. I'm afraid that I'll be in the same room that I was when we found that the baby's heart had stopped, and that I'll just freak out. Iím afraid that my doctor will advise me not to start trying again. To get to his office, I have to go to the lobby of L&D, and the thought of going through the same doors that I last left without my baby literally nauseates me. Can I skip it? Iím having such anxiety, I've been in tears for the last few days, that's not so abnormal, but more tears than I usual for the last few weeks.

Are you having any complications? Do you have pending test results that the doctor might have information for you? If not I honestly don't see a need for the PP check-up. I even skipped on after my daughter's birth because the doctor was a jerk and had traumatized me.

If you think you need to see a doctor for some reason for family doctor can handle it. Cancel the appointment if it is too difficult for you.

I agree with Megan. I would just book with your GP. I skipped all of my post partum checks (not that I would recommend this) because I was just sick of doctors and hospitals.
