13 Weeks Pregnant, Changing Providers – Second Pregnancy


Today I’m 13 weeks and 1 day pregnant! I’m late on getting this out and that drives me nuts! I had a ROUGH day yesterday. I felt like I was back to being 7 weeks pregnant with the nausea and exhaustion. I thought these weeks are when things start to settle down… GUESS NOT! Maybe my body does a little better carrying girls! Either way, I still LOVE being pregnant and carrying my son ❤

Overall, this week was pretty good other than yesterday! I felt so yucky. I had my 12 week appointment with my OB that I always see earlier this week. She’s the BEST. Baby boy’s heart rate was in the 140’s! MUCH different from Peyton’s 170’s-160’s. I think those are old wives tales, that girl’s hearts beat faster than boys, but it seems true in our situation! So, it was a great appointment but difficult at the same time. I pretty much had to “break up” with my OB lol Although I LOVE her to death, I really do NOT want to deliver at Tradition Medical Center ever again. That is the only place they deliver at. I didn’t have a very good experience there and some of the nurses treated me like a child. I kinda feel like because I look so young, that people assume I’m a teen mom. I do NOT mean that teen moms deserve to be mistreated but they tend to be mistreated more often than older moms. It’s wrong in both scenarios and it’s very unfortunate. Every mother deserves to be treated with dignity and they all deserve help when they ask. ESPECIALLY if it is their first baby and they are PAYING to deliver at that hospital. There are a few other reasons I have decided to switch but I will get into that another day 🙂 My OB completely supports my decision and encouraged me to follow through with the things I want for this birth, so that is what I’m doing.

I found another office, down in Boca :O It’s a bit far for us but we feel it will be SO worth it. Aaron and I fell in love with this woman and I feel like I’m going to have the best birth experience I possibly can with her. So I will be delivering down south. We are happy and comfortable with our decision and I feel much more at ease.
