I think I have the right doc!

Y'all are not going to believe it! My OB/GYN, Dr Sweetness, called me last night! I could not believe it. I left a message for her the day after my beta, letting her know that it came back positive. She actually apologized for not getting back to me sooner! I was not expecting her to call at all, and was just going to make an appointment after my first OB appointment with the Apprentice.

She asked how I was doing, and I let her know the pregnancy symptoms I have been experiencing. Fatigue, achy breasts, and ditziness. She was happy to hear that things are progressing normally. We discussed some of the prenatal testing I would be offered, including the genetic testing (because I am 35.) She also told me that this is the same info that the NP would talk about with me on my first OB visit. (Apparently the first OB visit is usually with the NP.) She is sending me info about the genetic testing and Hubby and I need to decide if we want to do it. Because she already discussed the prenatal testing with me, and I have already had an ultrasound, my first OB appointment does not have to be with the NP, and I can schedule my first OB appointment directly with her. I feel special already.

I am so glad that she is my doc! Dr Sweetness is the best!

It's so nice when they make the effort. I have to choose a new OB, and I've been dragging my feet. I hope I get as lucky as you!
