I have a Doctor FINALLY!!

Okay so the last couple of weeks have been stressful for me. My hubbie got a new job over at Schlumberger which was a super good move for our family. A. It's closer B. He is getting paid significantly more C. no more being bent over paying for gas for his truck! but in the process of the new job we of course got new insurance which is fine cause we still had %100 coverage but my dr who I really liked and trusted doesn't take the insurance. I was not a happy camper. So I started mulling over the idea of a VBAC again. Well let me tell you it is not easy to find or even be accepted for a VBAC and if you want to try for it you have to be almost nazi about it like you have to be really focused on what you want and go gung ho to get it and not back down and most of the drs practice out of the med center. NO THANK YOU! I may be the only person who doens't like going to the med center but it is a major pain in the ass and I always get mixed up down there and have to pay for parking. YUCK! So I started mulling over the thought of homebirth and had an appt with a midwife. She was really nice but again you have to be really focused on that to it is a lifestyle and you have to be commited to no drugs and the thought of birthing at home seemed cool but I don't think I have the stamina and she wanted me to be on an even stricter diet with my diabetes which I was like are you kidding this one is hard enough. My mom said you would have to be really focused on what you want and at this point I just don't have the energy. I say just cut me open be done with it. That way I can schedule it and my mom can schedule her plane ticket to come down and we all win! But let me tell you trying to find just a Dr became a major headache. I had referrals from several friends from church for a Dr in sugar land and I had my records sent over and left 2 messages and never got a call back. I mean how rude I am 24 wks preggers here people not just out to get my hoo hoo checked out. So after 2 preggers melt down I mean full on hyperventilating and crying on the phone with my mom I decided that is it I am finding a Dr and they will speak to me!!! So yesterday I found a dr that works out of the hospital I want and get this his nurse actually spoke to me and was so nice and helpful and I just knew that this would be a good place to go. She actually called me several times to ask me questions and took time today to help me fill out paperwork. So I have an appt on Monday and I am so happy. This has really been a stress on me and with my diabetes it isn't good to be all stressed out because my sugars get all sporadic. And this Dr specializes in diabetes in pregnancy so that is a good thing. Well I feel like I rambled on and on but I am just so happy to be seen by a Dr.

Glad you found a doc - maybe since you are a new patient they will do an ultrasound and you'll get to see the sex of that baby finally~!

Hi Lynnette,
He is a really great ob/gyn, and his partner Dr. Crowe is fabulous too!
