my new OB

This morning was my first visit to my new OB in Dallas.

I like her.

But it's so weird to change doctors this far into the game. I loved my old doctor! He was great.

But things happen and I guess I couldn't drive an hour and a half for my appointments and to deliver. So a change was inevitable.

Anyway, everything is looking great. I am measuring a bit small, but all in all the baby sounds great. (Funny how you can feel HUGE and be measuring small!). My new doctor was a bit concerned about the weight of Grace when she was born... 8 pounds 10 ounces. She was saying that many times your second baby is larger. She just doesn't want me having a baby bigger than 9 pounds. So I am scheduled to have an ultrasound in 4 weeks (I will be 36 weeks then) to make sure the baby isn't getting too big. She mentioned something about possibly inducing early if the baby is looking big, but I'm not sure how I feel about it. I've always been pretty against inducing unless there was a medical reason to do so. Things just happened so naturally with Grace (my water broke on my due date... who does that happen to?), so I guess I was just hoping the same would happen this time. Anyway, I guess I have a little time to thing that over.

So all in all, she was very nice. Hopefully the next 8 weeks of this pregnancy will go as smoothly as the first 32 have. I just can't believe I will have another baby in less than 2 months! Time sure does fly. Now I have to run b/c I have lots to do before this little one arrives.

Wow! Its hard to believe that 32 weeks have passed already, huh?! I'm glad you like your new doc. I agree with you- inducing just seems to create too many problems. I will be in prayer that everything will work out and the baby will go ahead and come when she's ready- not when the doc is ready!

I was induced with both my boys. Actually, I was induced 10 days earlier with both of them for different reasons but everything went fine. They didn't take them too early and they were both very healthy. I just wanted you to know that in case you are induced. They check the baby pretty well before they do it. I feel they wouldn't risk anything if they thought it was wrong.

Just thought it might ease your mind in case that what they want to do. It's also scary when they're in there too long. There are a whole new set of problems that occur when they don't come out soon enough.
