I had another appointment with my doctor today. She just did a pap and took cultures. We chatted for a few minutes about my fears and questions. I wasn't too sure about her initially. She seems very clinical and not very warm. I decided though that I like her. At one point she asked if I was going to breastfeed. I laughed and said "It's hard to even imagine getting to that point." She patted me on the back and said with confidence "I think you will this time, I'm sure we'll get there." She is human after all. So I think with her clinical ability and her ability to also be warm when the situation dictates she's a good choice for me this time around. All of my blood work from the last visit looked good. She went over them individually and I thought it was kind of funny that she informed me that I was HIV negative, Syphilis negative, Hepatitis Negative and a few more I don't even remember. I guess I knew they did an HIV test, but I had no idea they did syphilis. I supposed it's a good thing they test for all of that, but it's also kind of annoying. I was tested for all of that a little over a year ago and the law is they have to retest every pregnancy. In my case I was 100% sure all the results would be the same. I'm sure there are cases even with married people where someone cheats or whatever and the results aren't what they expect, but it still seems like a waste of time and money to redo the tests every time. So my next appointment with her is in 4 weeks and I'm still waiting for them to schedule my NT scan. So for now, it still looks good!
