Why do you need a referral?! I'm in a large town too and have no issues getting in but I don't need a referral. Is that an insurance thing?

High risk doctors will only see you with a referral from your regular OB. It has to be sent in from OB office and then approved through insurance before they will schedule you. Not sure, that's how it was for a friend of mine who was high risk in another state too. I just assumed that's how all high risk doctors work.

Ah. Yes. I am not seeing a high risk ob. My current ob and my re don't seem to think I need one. However when I needed a cvs last year I was referred to a high risk ob.

Yeah, I am classified as high risk. I'm not worried about getting in to see my OB, I am worried about my OB getting the referral to high risk on time. They will be doing the cerclage through the high risk clinic so the referral is important timing wise. I'm hoping it's all sorted now, we'll see next week.

Klabro - what a nightmare! I hope you manage to get it all sorted soon. Not that it should be your job to organise all these people!!

Thanks ladies. I'm hoping I have it all sorted now. As long as my insurance cooperates it should be ok. They didn't want to put the referral in until I had my OB intake appointment, which they can't get me in for until I am 10 weeks. I'm fine with that, I just need the referral to be done before then because it is very tough to get into a high risk clinic in 3 weeks time. I'm just hoping that my insurance will approve the referral even though I technically have not established the maternity care. So annoying to have to deal with this. Hoping its just a small hurdle for now though.

How are you all feeling? I start feeling queasy right around breakfast time and it usually subsides after dinner. So I spend the entire day feeling super blah and I'm perfectly fine and normal at night time.

I feel pretty good. Every once in a while I'm nauseous but it's super mild. It's the most morning sickness I've ever had. Headed to the beach tomorrow. Hoping it makes the days go by quickly until my next ultrasound

The beach sounds like a great way to make the time pass. I'm still trying to come up with something to do and wishing August away. 5 days down....

I'm feeling ok too. Pretty tired, been napping for an hour or so during the day. I get the odd bit of nausea before I eat in the morning, nothing too bad. Although last night DH wanted fish and chips and I couldn't eat it, I felt so sick as soon as I took a bite. It's not the fish, it's the batter and deep fried chips - which I've always loved - guess it's a good thing as it's not exactly healthy!

I'm also wishing August away too, and most of September! I'm going shopping today as I need a swimming costume. Me and my sil (who sadly had a MMC in May) are going to a spa in a couple of weeks and I'm not going to be wearing a bikini with this bloat!!
