Re: When is everyone's first appointment?

Best of luck with the gallbladder Monkeymama. I had mine out in July. Just be sure to REST and have help for that week after and you will be good. If you try to do too much it just takes longer to heal up (trust me...).

I have to get on the phone with the HB midwife here and set a time to meet. It probably won't be till the end of Jan, but I am only 4/5 weeks right now.

I am debating getting concurrent care with a doctor in case my HG shows up again so that I can get on top of it right away. But that means getting on medicaid (my husband just started a new job and we have a 90 day wait for insurance). If I can get on it easily and quickly I will most likely get it just so I know I can go to the ER or doctor for fluids and Zofran if needed.

My only other worry is setting up a payment plan with the midwife, but from what I hear she is very accommodating since she views this as her ministry. I can't wait to meet her. She is sort of a rock star in this state.

Re: When is everyone's first appointment?

Will have a preliminary appt with the midwife sometime in Jan, but won't have my first "official" appt until Feb. Can't wait to hear the heartbeat. I always worry about things and hearing that heartbeat is such an amazing moment!! Kinda seals it all, kwim?

Re: When is everyone's first appointment?

I finally made an appt today! Two weeks from today (wed 16th). The Dr I picked is one I really hope works for us. We've used him before with the kids well checks and he seems to be a good fit. Just so excited to see this bean!!

I finally called to make my appointment today. I'm going with a group of CNMs in a hospital practice and managed to get an appt next Monday.

I hear ya! That's the boat I'm in. I switched to a group I really wanted and that will be better for my birth but the wait is so long. I finally to on Jan 18th and I will be just shy of 13 weeks!

So I'm feeling ya. : )
