I'm down to the final six weeks, the worst 6 weeks so i've heard. I mentioned before that my emotions are going out of whack which makes me feel like i've been sipping on crazy juice a little bit. But i took the ultimate chug of crazy juice the other day...
I switched doctors.
I got my records transferred over to the new doctor's office, scheduled a new appointment, and canceled my other appointment at my old doctor's office. Thankfully i didn't do all of this on a whim, although it feels that way a little bit mostly because i'm on a time crunch.
There had been a lot of little things that bothered me about my old doctor. I kept telling myself that i wouldn't go to her if i got pregnant again while we were still living here. I even asked some girls in the ward if they knew of any good OB/GYN's that they would recommend. One in particular told me about a doctor that worked at the hospital i would be delivering at and he came highly recommended by her aunt who switched to him at 38 weeks. I researched his reviews online and he checked out, but i still didn't think i would switch.
My last appointment with my old doctor was the last straw. She wasn't thrilled that i lost weight, and thought i was gaining too much weight overall (is 18 pounds at 32 weeks really too much?). Then i found out that the baby was breech (delightful) and my doctor breezed by that information like there was nothing i needed to know about it. Finally she let the information slip that the second time i was in the hospital for my kidney infection she put me in there and i didn't even have an infection! I apparently was showing the signs for one and she admitted me just in case. (Couldn't she have given me an antibiotic instead of forcing me to stay in the hospital?!?!). Maybe that isn't a huge deal but i was not happy.
I went home and weighed my options and decided that the only reason i would stay with my doctor would be to not hurt her feelings (not the best reason to stay). I was nervous to send my records transfer paper over to my old doctor, but now that its done i feel SOOO much better. I'm a little late in the game and realized that i would only see my new doctor 4 times before the baby is born. Thats the part that makes me feel like i'm a little crazy for doing this, but its definitely something i feel like i had to do.
Now i just need things to stay uneventful with the baby until i meet with my new doctor.
I know you can't get enough pictures of me standing in my living room/hallway so here's another one. : ) 34 weeks
