I'm back from getting blood drawn and waiting for my nurse to call with my beta. In the mean time, my mind is (of course) already moving ahead to that first u/s. So I have a question for you ladies about where it is best to do my early pregnancy monitoring.
My current OBGYN is located in a small, downtown office right by my apartment. It's a new relationship - I only went there to get my annual / PAP when I was doing my ODWU at C.CRM. I have to say I don't love my OBGYN - she's okay, but she's a little bit bitchy and has been kind of nosy about my IVF (asking me how much it cost, questioning why I went out of state, etc.) But she would be very easy to set up appointments with and convenient to get to, and the office generally seems like a good practice. However, I would never ultimately deliver there, because I want to go somewhere that has a sophisticated MFM practice, just in case (heaven forbid) anything should go wrong.
I could also try to find an OB at a hospital where I might ultimately want to deliver, so I can develop that relationship early. But the big hospitals are all far uptown and will likely be harder to get an initial appointment at. Also, since C.CRM will be continuing to provide primary care for the next however many weeks, I wonder if I should wait to go there once (if?) I "graduate" from their care.
Does anyone have thoughts or recommendations? I have never gotten this far (obviously!) so just don't know what the best option would be. Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated!
I will be posting that beta number later today as soon as I get it - fingers crossed...
