Appointment went really well - mostly basic stuff (here's your list of ok meds to take, eat healthy, don't take up waterskiing, etc). We are up in the air on transferring to the hight risk OB now though - our current OB is AWESOME he just doesn't deliver at the hospital with the level 3 NICU, but he said by the time I would deliver (if I don't go too early) the one he delivers at will probably be a level 3 NICU (they are working on that designation). Right now they can handle premature babies as early as 28 weeks, which is about when I delivered my daughter. He seems pretty confident he can deal with me and my history. We did ask about Makena/17p progesterone and he said because I never had contractions before my water broke the last time there is a bit of controversy if the injections would even work for me, but, he also said they probably wouldn't do any harm either. Those would start somewhere between 16-20 weeks.
So that's where I'm at for now - I'm comfortable staying with him for the time being I may change my mind as 28/29 weeks gets closer. He said there is also a rumor that the high risk OB that delivered my daughter may be moving back to Phoenix from Texas in the future - and if that's the case all bets are off and I am hunting her down, lol. I have my next dr. appointment and a dating u/s scheduled for Jan. 7th. Then we'll look as scheduling the first trimester screen (really just to ease my DH's concerns because we have no risks for Down's).
The only other thing was getting DH screened for Cystic Fibrosis since we found out I was a carrier with the prenatal labs he did a few months ago. He's more freaked out over that than I am - no one in either side of our families has CF so our risk is relatively small.
Looking forward to seeing how everyone else starts off!
