Six Week Check-up?

Have you all gone or do you plan to go to your 6-wk appt?? Mine is scheduled for Friday and I am almost positive that I'm going to call today and cancel it. Is there really any reason to go? I won't be going on BC, I feel 100% fine, and the thought of dragging four kids to the doctor in the freezing cold sounds like high blood pressure waiting to happen. I went with the other three kids and I always go away thinking what a compete waste of time it was.

Re: Six Week Check-up?

I feel the same way. My insurance doesn't cover a 6 week check up pap so I know I am going to go and they will ask me some questions and then send me home. At least I only have to take the baby. DH is home in the morning so he will be keeping our other two but the baby goes everywhere I go since he only likes the boob.

Re: Six Week Check-up?

I have changed and I dont like my midwife anymore. I shoulda already had a 6wk check, I only had a 3 day check.
I was debating whether to go to my OB/GYN or to my regular doctor. I want to go on birth control, and thinking I could get some samples from my OB, BUT I want to get on something for my ADD and I think I have to go to my regular doctor, I dunno

Mine is today. I thought about canceling it but my insurance covers it so I figure I'll go now and then I'm good for another year. Plus I have some questions about the baby... perks of having a family practice dr!

Re: Six Week Check-up?

I haven't decided yet. My Dr does it any time after 4 weeks and she is 5 weeks today. I won't be having a pap because it isn't covered...so I am not sure, I will be going.

Re: Six Week Check-up?

Oh my goodness Alisha!!!

I will be going to mine. It's time for my yearly pap anyhow and I need to decide on some form of BC. ETA She is going to be 8 weeks on Saturday and I won't be going an appointment until Feb. 7th... oops DH is out of country and there is no way I am dragging 3 kids to that type of appt.

YIKES!!!
I am so sorry to hear that.
I am scheduled to go get a new IUD next week, I've had one before but I wonder this time since its right after pregnancy if my uterus is ready.
