So it was actually today (Tuesday) that I had the second doctors appointment...
Dr Sarah Weaver. Bloody brilliant! Made me feel so at ease, answered all my questions and took all the time I needed.
She has gone through EVERYTHING. I'm totally excited and a little overwhelmed actually. But its all good.
She wants to re do all my blood tests, urine tests and make sure for herself I'm A O'K
I told her of my concern of miscarriage (I have had a close friend and an aunt miscarry at 6 weeks in the past month. We had a good chat about that. Obviously it is still possible. She reckons given my age, weight, health etc... It is still likely a 1 in 5 chance. I don't mind those odds. Don't love them. But they are ok.
Her own daughter is preggers at the moment and is going through RPA as a public patient. She said that they are excellent and unless we feel like forking out 10-15 grand for an Obstetrician we really shouldn't bother.
So I think that's the way we will go. For now at least. I suppose we can always explore other options later on.
So the Mister headed off to LA on Sunday for work and a bit of pleasure thrown in for good measure. He is back Monday.
For the past 2 nights I have been staying with my close friend Philippa and her daughter Hania. Rene her husband and mine are best mates, work together and are off on this trip together.
Philippa is one in a million. She has been looking after me like only your mother does! Bless her.
Tonight I will stay at home on my own, then tomorrow I'm up early and off to my parents holiday house in Barwon Heads VIC. Going to have a bit of R & R for a few days.
Then its back to work Monday... that I am not looking forward to.
Oh! And the new EDD is 2nd Sept 2011!
