Scheduling with my OB

I made my first OB appointment today! Hooray! I feel like that’s such a big milestone. My last appointment at the reproductive center is Monday, but I figured I’d go ahead and make my first appointment with the OB because I wasn’t sure what the wait would be.

When I called, I was told the doctors were booked for the next 3-4 weeks. I gave the receptionist my information, got my appointment time and was told they’d see me then. I asked if she needed to know why I was coming in, and she said no. Regardless, I went ahead and told her I was pregnant from IVF.

“Ohhhhh, that makes a difference!” she said.

Right….which is why I asked if you needed to know in the first place.

Now, instead of going in three weeks from now, my appointment is April 27. In fact, they wanted me to come in tomorrow, but I told them my last appointment at the reproductive center isn’t until Monday. I’m really excited about moving on to my OB. I just hope everything keeps going smoothly.

    (My OB office answering person sounds like James Earl Jones, the Vader years. Booking an appointment is always a bit daunting.)

    I hope that it goes smoothly, too!

    With Lucas, I saw the OB first at around eight weeks. With Meredith, I had a little bleeding at first and think that I went around six or seven.
