    Appt rescheduled again!

    Well ladies...I think I am officially going to go insane. My appt. that originally was on Feb 3rd, then moved to Feb. 14th had now been moved to Feb. 23rd. I am now at the point where I wonder if I will see my dr. before this little one is born! Don't get me wrong, I am not in the hunt for a new ob/gyn as I understand why my appt.'s have to be rescheduled (he delivers 270 babies a year and he is the only dr. in his office). It just is so FRUSTRATING because this is my 12 week (will be 15 week appt. now) appt. where we get to find the heartbeat with the doppler, which is such a good indicator of a successful pregnancy and leaving the 1st trimester worries.

    I have considered purchasing a baby beat, but the problem is that being not a skinny girl, I worry that I will have a hard time finding the hb and will end up stressing myself out more by trying to find it on my own. I could just see myself now at the ER saying there is not hb, when I just can't find it on my own. And it isn't just cuz I'm overweight that I worry about finding the hb...my ds was a PAIN to find the hb with the doppler all throughout my 2nd trimester only becoming more possible to do near the end of my pgncy.

    Anyway..I just ask for your prayers for patience for me as I wait yet another week for my appt.

    Thanks for all your support....

    's Lacee. I'm sorry you did not get to see your doctor again yesterday. I had an ob appointment yesterday too, but my ob got called to deliever before he ever got to see me. However, his nurse let me come back to a room and listen to the heartbeat. Do you think if you called back one of the nurses might let you listen to the heartbeat or have an ultrasound?

    I will say you have a lot more patience than I do. I'll pray that you keep having patience though.

    Oh Lacy that stinks. I would beg them to see me. Maybe you can call every day and ask if there has been a cancelation. They may squeeze you in. Good luck.

    Ugh that is a huge bummer. I am so sorry Lacee! My thoughts are with you and your babe. I hope that you find the peace to make it to the 23rd, I have an appt on that day too and I feel like its forever away!

    Oh Lacee that's so disappointing! After all these reschedules your doc should have somebody to cover for him in the office!
    Can't a nurse at least do the doppler thing for peace of mind??
    I'm SURE everything is fine--I just wish you could get in there already.

    Hang in there!

    what a bummer, sounds like its time for your OB to get a partner, how on earth does he have a life, as well as see and deliver all of those babies??? sorry you have had to wait again, it seems so unfair. :hugs:

    Oh Lacee!! I think you should call too and just see if you can go in to find the hb with a nurse and then have your regular appointment with the doctor on the 23rd.
    As for the doppler, I am very much overweight too and found it as early as 11 weeks!! Anytime I use it, I find it very quickly. I am actually going to return my doppler next week since I know it's there and don't want to mess anything up...silly me!

    How unfortunate.....you poor thing... I too would insist on getting something earlier since it was rescheduled twice already. That's 3 weeks! Not fair.....
