I had told a friend about my situation… mostly because it’s VERY VERY hard to keep this a secret. And I chose her because she has gone through 2 pregnancies and both children are happy and healthy =)
So based on our conversation, it’s best to really see my Primary Care Physician ASAP and confirm.
So I walked in at a clinic close to work and got a test done.
First I saw a Nurse. She was really nice… also lives in Cypress and had been pregnant once. These are just some questions she asked me during my visit:
Date of Last Mont’s Period
Symptoms You are experiencing
Medication(s) you are currently taking
Family Medical History
If I drink alcohol
If I have ever been a smoker
If I am happy about being pregnant — apparently she has made an assumption before and some women are NOT happy about the results.
So after peeing in a cup (which I had no problem doing at all), getting my blood pressure taken, and my temperature read… the doctor came in and did confirm that I am indeed pregnant. She asked if I had planned on keeping the baby and I asked her questions about what I need to avoid.
Her tips: I can continue to do what I’ve been doing physically. Eat fresh, healthy foods so Paleo is definitely good. Go with more natural medications if I have a cold or if I experience nausea. She also recommended a few OBGYNs in the area.
That night, I immediately got on my phone and started reading Yelp Reviews about the OBs my PCP recommended. The following day I had made a choice to call Dr. Meagan Moore:
And BAM! I scheduled my first appointment for 02/02/2017.
Baby Similar… can’t wait to see you on the screen =)
