Getting appointments in for the pregnancy should be a pretty straight forward thing, particularly in a community pushing 80 000. You would think. Our preparation for baby has gone quite smoothly, except on this one issue. It's been a few weeks since we've had our last appointment. Lisa is the expert, so I defer to her. I'm thinking that a good 7-8 weeks between appointments is a little ridiculous. We have yet to have an appointment with a gynecologist yet and the next appointment she does have is with a nurse! Are you kidding me?!
We've had no cause for alarm. I just hope the medical services here get their collective act together, especially since she has always delivered early. She's told me that if she goes full term and the baby is more than about 7lbs, I'm in big trouble as she prefers natural childbirth. I'm not sure I can deliver on that but I hope the powers that be get their act together.
