Here I am. Week 7. Uncharted territory, really. I am so grateful for each day that I have with the twins. I can’t wait to meet them!
This Wednesday I will be leaving the RE and venturing off into regular pregnancy life. I can’t decide who I want to use for our prenatal care though…
We have the midwives (group of about 6 or 7ish) who attended Ryan’s birth. And, we love, like and dislike some of them. However, we did have an overall really good experience with them. But, they share an office with a pediatric office and there are sick kids everywhere! They were pretty much always available when we needed them and they always called back pronto when we had a question and paged them.
Second choice is our primary family doctor. She is also a midwife and will also be the babies doctor, as she is ours and Ryan’s. She sees most children on Mondays and her waiting room is bigger so we can just move away from runny nosed, coughing, germ infested children. But, I’m nervous that she would have too much on her plate. She has office hours and this and that going on, what if I go into labor and she can’t be there? At least with the midwives one of them will be there! I guess these are questions that I’m going to have to bring up with her. I called the office and they are waiting for a call back to see when she can fit me in. That’s another thing. She is VERY busy. I’ll prob always have to be ‘fit in’. I called today and her next appointment isn’t until the end of May, so they had to call her to see where I can be squeezed in at.
I guess when I write it all out, the midwife group seems to be a better fit. I want to ask our primary some questions first before I make a decision.
And now for the week 7 update. I’ve been on a roller coaster of nausea lately. I tend to feel sick later in the day instead of the morning. I have yet to actually get sick…I’ve been able to control it with my mind. Sometimes I know that I’d feel better if I did, but I just can’t bring myself to doing so. And, I really don’t want to get sick at work. But, for the last couple of days, I’ve been feeling okay in that department. Which, of course makes me nervous. Even though I know it’s normal for symptoms to come and go. I’ve also been having some brownish/pinkish/reddish spotting. Only when I wipe. I asked the RE the last time I was there and he said it could just be from the placentas growing in. On sono, nothing showed to be bleeding or anything, so they were not concerned about it. It comes and goes as it pleases, but I really wish it would just go. It makes me nervous!
If you have read this far, you get a cookie. I should update more often. =)
Happy 7 weeks to me!
