Alix: You should be able to change if you dont like who you picked. Maybe you can get a list of OB's to choose from and do some research online. My PCP referred me to Dr. M 6 years ago.. I wasnt sure at first, but she has been the GREATEST GYN.. I cussed her out the first time she tried to do a pelvic exam.. I was in pain in that area to begin with and hadnt been sexually active.. the pain was excruitiating when she tried to do an exam. I started cursing and crying hysterically in front of my aunt (who had come with me) who is a nun. LOL.. oh well.. all that to say, Dr. M and I have a great relationship..so you never know. You may find that who you picked is a great OB! You could always do some research before your first appt as well!
DH is goofy.. I've pretty much gone a whole month without anything while the SS is here. So I have gotten over wanting it by waiting on him. He has no issues asking me to "service " him while JD is here, but he wont touch me. double standards!!
Tara: DH hasnt a romantic bone in his body.. lol but the idea is nice.
I hope you do find you are PG. When you do have your LO, are you going to BF? A year seems like such a long time, but its a year.. the first year.. its worth it!
afm- Layla has been trying to walk so badly the last few days. Its coming..and its coming fast!!
and oh my.. I smell something smelly.. bbl!

Alix- By your LMP your EDD would be 4/19 which would put you at 4 weeks exactly today. That is not very good that you have to pick a doc like that. It's very important to be informed about who your doc is what kind of reputation do they have. Another key piece that people don't always think about is who covers them when they're on call?
Brie- Darn, yeah I don't think that most men are super romantic. DH has has his moments although mostly not a romantic at all. Our 4 yeard wedding anniversary is on Thursday so fingers crossed. Although I am working that night. Yes, definately if I ever do have one of my own I really want to breastfeed if nature allows.

Tara: I'll add Alix's EDD up based on your findings , but am super hopeful that i will get to add yours as well! I am so glad you will BF as well. Its super hard at first.. you'd think it'd be natural instinct, but its so not.. I think you will be a wonderful mother, and I surely cannot wait to see you and your BFP, and watch for your PG updates and eventually "meeting" that LO.. and hoping your dream is true..its a little girl
Its time you and DH caught a break!
How long were you guys together for before you got married? Chris and I will be together for 5 years next month. =x Thats a long time, of course, I've had my moments where I want to throw him on his rear..but hes done so much for me, not just physically but emotionally. Hes helped me overcome alot, and I've done that for him (so he says.. that man is like a freaking mountain, I cant imagine how i've helped him lol).
Happy Early Anniversary to you guys!!
I just realized 15 and 16 days til DH and I's birthdays..and I have yet to even go shopping for an idea of what to get him. lol whoops!

Brie- Thanks that's very kind. I hope all that is true BFing definately doesn't always come easy that's for sure. Especially since I help teach it. Sometimes it takes a lot of work to get everything going right. I would love to have a little girl seems like everyone is having boys. Of course no matter what I would love a boy too. I feel the same way about my DH sometimes. Not really sure what it is that I offer him We've been together for 8.5 years and known each other for 13. Crazy! That makes me feel like I'm getting old

Alix- I would certainly say something about that. You need to take care of yourself and working crazy long hours isn't a good thing.
Tara- I LOVE having a boy, I pray when I have another it's a boy as well, he's been so much fun. We hiked Mt. Pilchuck today, I read it's a fairly easy hike, whoever said that needs to be hurt somehow. So many rocks to climb through. Ugh!
Brie- I had intended to BF a year and then play it from ear after that. We're still BFing, I don't think I would go past two years and I highly doubt we will make it there, I did tell him after the second time he bit me that if he does it again after he turns one we're done.
AFM- So tired. I only managed to hike with Nathan on my back for about 2 miles then had to hand him off to someone that does far more hiking. Was kinda bummed I couldn't do it, but I'm glad I finished the hike so I suppose it was worth it.

Amy- Boys are fun. My nephew has always been a blast. I've Mt. biked through the Pilchuk tree farm although I think it's different. I know Mt. biking it's really a lot of climbing which isn't that fun.

Tara: I think you will be a great mom, and I definitely can't wait to see your BFP!
Alix: Usually they wont do a U/s until you are further along, but if you are 4 weeks now, by the time they get you in for your first appt, they will probably do an ultrasound. We had our first at 9 weeks, 1 day and you could see Layla's little arms and legs forming She looked just like a gummy bear!! lol. It was amazing when i had a 13 week ultrasound at MFM (we dont know my fathers med history and chris' father was adopted so we dont know much there either, so we wanted to screen for genetic defects) and she looked like a person then.. its amazing how fast they grow in a matter of weeks. I know now my OB GYN office does ultrasounds at every appt..so its hard to say.
I did tell DH how i felt before, but it never changes. Old men. >_> I love him though.. but sometimes wish he listened a little better or would be a little sweeter.
Amy: I second that motion on the biting. Layla got me once so hard I almost peed on myself (especially since it was 2:30am and i was half asleep) She usually doesnt. I tell her "OUCH that hurts momma!" and she seemed to get it, especially when I stop after that. My goal is a year, I dont plan on going further than that.. Im too ready to get back on a regular BCP. I just feel like Im toying with a disaster waiting to happen with condoms. Its just how our luck goes. lol.
afm- My temp is all crazy this morning, I didnt sleep good because my hillbilly neighbor got super drunk and decided to scream, laugh, yell, slam doors, fall down the stairs, climb up, run down said stairs, wake layla and chris and I, and i couldnt fall asleep til almost 4am.

Brie- Your neighbors wound horrible! That is not good. I thought I remembered you mentioning in the past how bad they are. Can you talk to your landlord? If they don't respond to you asking maybe the police? That is totally ridiculous.
Alix- Go by your LMP unless it wasn't normal then you'd go by the early US. That is what we do at work. Usually the US is the best along with the LMP. Unless your base doc is going by your LMP which doesn't wound like it that wouldn't be right. The estimated date of confinement (EDC) starts counting at day one of you last LMP. I think you are in the 4 week range now with the date you posted. You can use Naegele's Rule:subtract three months from the first day of the last menstrual period and add seven days to that date and change the year if needed.
AFM- Have the phone consult tomorrow at 2pm. I'll keep you guys posted.
