Whew...what an eventful couple of hours. Geez. :)
This morning I got a call on my cell phone. Let me just say that I'm really bad about answering the phone when I don't recognize the number. SO I had forgotten that I ignored a call this morning until around 11:30. I decided to check my messages...and it was my doctor. NOT my nurse... my doctor.
Dr.G has only ever called me one time. It was the day after Lilly's funeral...and I had broken out in a rash all over my stomach, and he called to check on me. So it startled me when I heard his voice on my voice mail. He said that it was NOT an emergency, but to call him as soon as I could. He had been talking to a specialist at the prenatal center, and he wanted to discuss a few options with me.
So I immediately call, and of course he is with a patient. And so is my nurse. :( I told the receptionist to have him call me, that he had left a message for me to call him. That was at 11:45. I've been sitting around all afternoon thinking about what in the world these "options" might be. FINALLY, Dr.G called me at 1:30. :)
He said that he has been emailing with Dr.D all day. She's a specialist that has dealt with a number of multiple pregnancies. Dr.G had been telling her about my blood pressure problems, and things about my pregnancy with Lilly...and how it ended. He also told her that I am having weekly ultrasounds to keep an eye on fluids, and to check heart rates. Dr.D suggested that she start seeing me for weekly ultrasounds instead of having them done at Dr.G's office (even though we love you, Miss V!). Dr.D can do a much more in depth ultrasound that she said will take a good amount of time. Apparently their equipment is a lot more high tech than what Dr.G's office has. They also have a Doppler-type thing that can check the blood flow in the umbilical cord.
Dr.G assured me that they didn't see anything wrong with my ultrasound yesterday, but that he was thrilled that Dr.D had offered to take over the ultrasounds. He says that IF problems do arise, that Dr.D would be able to track them a lot better than Miss V. :)
Needless to say, my doctor just went WAY up on my "liked-doctor" list. I love that he is taking the extra time to get the best care possible for me and my little ones. :) He also asked Dr.D about delivery, and she says that with the weekly ultrasounds - if a problem arises, they will be able to tell if they should go ahead and take the babies. If not, I would more than likely go into labor on my own. Either way... I couldn't be happier with TWO doctors looking out for me now.
I'm waiting on my nurse, J, to call with my referral and appointment. SO looking forward to meeting this doctor...AND getting to see my little one's in depth EVERY SINGLE week. VERY exciting. I hope we get pictures!! :)
I know I already updated once today, but I had to share!! We are so blessed...
