for entertainment....

I'll post a BR AW and complaint, and then you can all call me a bitter old hag and tell me that I need to go post on the nest. 

AW: 
I went in for my check up this morning, and since I'm almost 12 weeks, the Dr. tried to get the heartbeat on the doppler. Bad news - couldn't hear the HB, good news is we couldn't hear it cause Wolverine was moving all over the place (there were a bunch of "whoosh" sounds - which I thought was pretty cute).  I recorded the "whoosh" sounds and sent to DH, who is convinced that Wolverine is in there doing backflips. 

Complaint:
OB hasn't been too bad with appointments cause they hold slots for PG ladies to get checkups, but trying to schedule other appointments has been a nightmare. I haven't told my work that I'm PG yet* so trying to work in all of these specialist Dr. appointments has been difficult. I needed to see a neurologist for my migraines and get an EEG (2 appointments) get my US (which they don't do at the OB office), and see a perinatologist because of family history of high BP, and get another US. None of these offices have early/late/weekend hours so I always have to go in the middle of the day and just book a meeting on my calendar. They're also very limited on appts, and I have to call a bunch of offices to schedule around 2 business trips in June. It's a PITA. I have to go to the Perinatologist at a hospital in Philly 30+min away for a 7:15am apt, because it's the only time they have open - my local hospital has someone once a week, and no appointments until the end of June. 

*(I'm going to hold off another month and a half, if possible - i'm not showing yet, and have been working from home most of the time, so not like anyone would guess it from looking at me)

    can you book a bunch of the appts on the same day?  because that would help.

    But, yeah, that, 'look, not public yet' thing makes it hard.

    i wish i could. i modified my work schedule so i'm on a 9/80 with every other friday off - it would be great if i could schedule them on a friday or at least all at once so i could just take a sick or personal day. I did manage to get my EEG on the same date as my first OB appt, so i took the afternoon off as personal time, and then stopped by the lab to get my bloodwork done. 

    The offices have no flexibility. :-(

    I swear my OB is the ONLY doc I go to that works on fridays--I do the 4-10's w/ fridays off and...well...nobody lets me get friday appts still.  I feel that pain.
