Today, The Targo took the morning off, so he could accompany me to my doctor's appointment. We were hoping to get the information straight about the hospital change. I was afraid I was going to wimp out. Well, the doctor seeing patients today had to cancel because she was delivering. This is one of the negatives of a small practice. I've had three appointments this pregnancy get canceled. So, I asked the receptionist about the hospital change. She explained to me that there are things that they can't do, because the practice is so small.
So! I talked to many, many girlfriends to find a practice that delivers at the hospital I want to go to. And now, I wait.
Here are the things:
- I'm at 30 weeks tomorrow --- should I be changing practices this late in the game?
- I love that I *know* all three of the doctors in my practice --- Do I want to go to a practice with 10 doctors, where chances are, I won't have met the doctor that would deliver for me?
- My current practice is not supportive of my goal of having a VBAC --- I would love to not have to recover from a c-section with an infant and a busy toddler.
- My current practice delivers at a crappy hospital --- I would love my nurses to speak English, and my gosh, the better hospital is SO nice.
