It seems like yesterday that I was 4 weeks and just realised that I was pregnant! The next 4 weeks really fly by and wish you all the best.
I am pleased to hear that your tour went well. Quite funny really, I nearly went there last Sunday. My pregnancy is becoming obvious to some of my friends and family. To the rest I am just putting on post-wedding weight and a lot of it.
My Dr is at Parkhill Medical Clinic and they are fantastic and really thorough. Many of the Dr there are female.
My Dr answered my questions about which hospitals that I could go to as a public patient and even suggested a few OB's. I think she is interested to see how I will find the midwives at Casey.
I rang the midwives as soon as I found out I was pregnant. They answer the phone between 1pm and 4pm weekdays (8768 1756). They asked me heaps of questions to determine if I was a low risk patient, fortunately I am, even though I am 34.
They asked to see me in week 10 so I am booked in for an appt then.
I had a recent scan because my Dr wanted to ensure my preg was not ectopic (I only have one ovary so if that side becomes damaged then I am in trouble). Fortunately, our "Bubbado" is in the uterus and it's heart is beating at 133bpm at 6weeks and 1 day. Which is four days out of my LMP. My Dr has decided to stay with my LMP and not the scan date.
The midwives said that they would like me to have a scan at 12 weeks and undertake a test to determine if my baby is low, med or high risk for some abnormalities. My Dr also suggested this.
At this stage, I am seeing my Dr if I feel I need to and the midwives at Casey. I'm sure that they will suggest an OB if they feel it necessary.
I hope this has helped and you are welcome to PM me, it's nice to have some company along the way.http://simply-baby.net/tickers/pregimage.php?id=7555
