It wont feel real until my gut start to get bigger and I go to the dr, and hopefully get an US. i know i ovulated late this cycle, so when they get my LMP im gonna make it seem like i have no idea how far i could be. lol... *fingers crossed* i want to see a bean and a flickering HB : )

Ya the doctor appointments will definitely help. I wont get an u/s until around 11-12 weeks so I suffer not seeing anything till then lol.

:?
That is odd. Most would want to know your past pregnancy history I'd think? There could be some major issues she's unaware of.

i know. i thought the same thing.. hmmm, i wonder if this should be a sign? im just looking for a MIDWIFE rather than a doctor and i want to deliver at this specefic hospital because of the natural birthing floor they have. i can have an actual waterbirth IN a hospital which i feel like is unheard of! and your in one room the whole time, to deliver and recover and its a huge suite. maybe i should look around more? or at my appt just request that i get my medical records? i know my births have been "normal" but with Eli i did bleed for a few months and had a SCH. i guess we will see. if i dont like the midwife i can always change providers since its soo early in the pregnancy.

Ya maybe on your first appointment ask why they don't get records. And just base it from that.
That sounds like a great hospital!!

Just jumping in to say that's really not that weird...I've had about 5 different OBs/offices through the course of my pregnancies...none have requested medical records from the past.

Did they just contact previous docs themselves? Mine just did it on their own when I switched.
I would just think if you had lots of preemies or something like bleeding problems after birth the doc would want to know that?

Nope. They trusted me to give them an accurate history of my pregnancies. I am sure if I had any issues they might want more information, but that's never been an issue.

Hannah, I never had to transfer my records when I changed offices. The only time I had to get information was when I went to OSU for a second opinion.

Mine had me fill out some paper work and then we met with the Dr and he asked questions and got an understanding of everything.

Exactly! I have a detailed history, so they just had me come in for an appointment specifically to get all of that information.



I still can't believe you're pregnant! :)
