This board seems so empty without a TTC thread... so I thought I would start one... a place for those to chat that are TTC or getting close to TTC.

So DH and I have decided we want to have #3 at a different hospital (about the same distance as the last hospital I went to; but more of what we want in a hospital). This means switching doctor groups.

I just had my yearly in Feb, but with new insurance I can have it anytime after June 1. Should I wait until we're PG and then call the new office (later this year), or should I try to get in to see them before?

There are 2 different doctor groups I could chose from to go to that hospital.

We're still debating the whole home birth idea as well.

Kate,

With the fast rate you deliver babies, a HB might not be a bad idea! If you're serious about it, I would start looking into MW's now. In my area, there are only a handful that do HBs and they book up FAST.

Do you have any idea how long it might take you to get in to the new group of docs? Maybe you could call to see what the wait is and then decide. Since you just had your annual in Feb., I'm not sure what more they could do except a TTC check (but you've already had two babies so it's kind of a moot point I would think), but if it takes awhile to get in then it might not be a bad idea to have a relationship established ahead of time.

AF showed up yesterday so no BFP for me (there was a teeny chance I could be PG after being a little careless last cycle). Part of me was a little bummed, but really it’s for the best as it would put a wrench in our plans if I end up at a new school this fall. I’m hoping we can shoot for July.

Kate - I think it would be good to know before hand how you feel about a practice since you do have some options. Maybe like Christine said just call and see how busy they are.

I think HB are great but I would never do one! Recently a midwife clinc opened up near the park we love. It's one of those go, have your baby in a home like setting, and then go home deals. I was surprised when Rob showed some interest in it and mentioned it to me since I hate the hospitals here, but I just feel more comfortable being close to a NICU. If someone could give me a 100% guarantee I'd have a perfectly healthy baby I would do it.

But I certainly admire women who do it!

Christine - Boo AF!!

AFM - Well we slipped last night. I lost track of my days and just plain didn't care and we DTD last night sans condom. And then this morning my temp rose. Before I O it's in the mid 96's, after I O mid 97's, and if I am pregnant low 98's. My temp this morning was 97. And my OPK was negative. I kept forgetting to test and my CD 12 OPK is more then twice as dark as today's so now I am thinking CRAP, what if I o'd last night!?

It would just be my luck to get pregnant in April 4 years in a row!

LOL Amy... I don't mean to laugh... I swear I only get PG in May, and almost try to avoid DTD then, when I'm not in a "baby state of mind". I hope the next few weeks go fast for you.

My issue w/ HB is both of my boys had severe jaundice and both had to have intervention in the hospital (with Teddy being readmitted after we were discharged).

Yeah we've DTD just 3 times this month when normally we do it every other day lol. I am STILL worried we'll get pregnant this month. Rob said to me last night after we talked about the possibility that I might have O'd on Sunday "Why don't we just ensure you got pregnant?" lol! I smacked his arm and was like "BECAUSE I DON'T WANT ANOTHER JANUARY BABY!!!" lol! He really wants to just try now and not wait for June but I want to make sure that even if it's twins again and we go early we don't end up with more Dec/Jan birthdays lol.

So it appears I did not O yet. Finally got some good on time temps in and they are under 97*. I actually kind of feel like AF is coming. Tender breasts, bloated to the point of being nauseated if I wear my jeans, craving chocolate, and cramping. Hopefully things will be more back on track by June.

Kate- If it was me, I would schedule an appointment to make sure I liked the doctors before TTC.
