Day 28: Today, I am giving thanks for my OB.
Over the years, I have used many different OB/GYN doctors for my pregnancies. I have experienced wonderful doctors, and not-so-wonderful doctors. When we first moved down here, I had an absolutely awful OB for my pregnancy with Parker. When I got pregnant with Gage, I knew I needed to find a new doctor, but I had no idea where to start looking. A friend of mine recommended Dr. Davis, and after one visit, I knew he was going to be a great doctor! He is kind, caring, and actually listens to his patients. He is also willing to go the extra mile to ensure the safety of those precious unborn babies.
Yesterday, I had my 29 week appointment visit. My blood pressure was high, my uterus is measuring small, and Carly just doesn’t move as much as the doctor would like. Rather than brushing it off and saying “let’s see what’s happening at your next appointment,” he sent me over to the hospital for a non-stress test. I’ll now have these weekly until Carly makes her arrival, just to be sure she’s doing all right.
I’m so thankful to have an OB that would rather play it safe and keep an eye on the baby than to just play the wait-and-see game.
What are you thankful for today?
