This is my first time to get pregnant. Being comfortable with my health care provider is very important for me. After all, she’s going to deliver my baby. I didn’t like the first Ob-gyn I went to. My health card recommended her to me. For one, I don’t think she’s never gotten pregnant herself and I found her kind of condescending. I couldn’t possibly live with that.
Butch and I asked friends for recommendations and we found my second doctor. She was nice. Very motherly and professional at the same time, I could tell she’s had a lot of experience. One problem I had with her though was she was always either extremely late or absent when I would visit her for my regular check-ups. I think she goes to like three clinics a day or something. Butch always makes a point to accompany me. He would take a leave of absence or go under time from work just to be with me. Imagine the disappointment when she doesn’t show up. Nevertheless, I think I could stick with this doctor. I would if this opportunity hadn’t come up.
My third OB-GYN and definitely the last is actually a cousin of mine. I didn’t think about her initially because her clinic is far from where I live. But we saw each other during my sister’s wedding and I was able to update her about my pregnancy. I found out that she had another clinic that is near my house. I’ll be sticking to her for sure. I am confident that she will be able to take good care of me and Nigel. After all, she’s family.
I had my first check-up with her yesterday. She said the baby is too big and I should stop eating carbs. I am currently on a “diet” from sweet stuff. I want to deliver Nigel normally. I don’t want him to get too big. She also asked me to do this blood sugar test. I will do it next week.
I just finished encoding the booklet Butch asked me to type. It’s actually shorter than I thought.
