A four hour tour, a four hour tour

On Wednesday, July 22nd, I went to my first visit with my new OBGYN Dr. Wooten. When I first realized I wouldn't be able to go back to my previous doctor I was pretty bummed. I also won't be able to go back to Piedmont-Fayette Hospital where I delivered before. So new doctor and new hospital. Which isn't terrible because I will get to deliver at Northside Hospital where I was born. Plus it is likely Mrs. Meri Mac will be on the delivery team so there is a lot to be excited about. But the doctor's appointment was a disaster! Through a whole bunch of mishaps from the office not receiving my prior medical records to them giving me the wrong cup to pee in, the visit took 4 hours! I was so ill by the time the appointment was over I wanted to run screaming from the place. Plus then I had to drive home in rush hour traffic which is soooooo not what a frustrated, hungry, nauseous, hormonal pregnant lady needed! My only saving grace through this debacle was my dear Meredith. She kept me entertained with laughs and sorority walk-songs. Bless you saint Meredith! My next visit will be in 2 weeks with the perinatolgist (high risk doc) and then I'll be back to see Dr. Wooten in a month. I will pretty much be seeing one of the docs every 2 weeks for now and eventually every week. I will hate the long drives to the doc but I'm glad they'll be keeping a close eye on me and the babies.


  1. Maybe a good habit would be to always keep some almonds, water or other protein in your purse. Never know when you might get stuck somewhere for a long time.

  2. Walk songs will get you through just about anything :) Way to go Meredith!

  3. What would we do without walksongs?!?!

    Don't worry- from here on out I will be bringing my cooler that I pack every morning in with me to all doctor appts!
