I went back to see Dr. Chamberlain on November 13th. I signed in for my 4:15 appointment at precisely 4:15 pm. I sat and waited for awhile. The nurse called me back to get a urine sample, weight, blood pressure, and to ask a few questions. After that, she sent me back to the waiting room because all of Dr. Chamberlain's rooms were full. So, I waited out there. It took a little while. I can't remember how long exactly. Then I got into a room. I waited in there. I waited. Then, I waited some more. I continued waiting. It was 5:30 before I even saw his face! He is a good doctor and spends a lot of time talking with me. He is patient and a good listener. So, I don't really mind waiting much.
I was hoping that he would tell me that I could do the VBAC. However, he said that Dr. Brumfield didn't agree with him. However, he acted like it was still a possibility. So, I don't know what to think now. I need to know. Next time I see him, I really want to know one way or the other.
The appointment went very well. I am still not far enough along for them to measure my belly, but they did listen for the heartbeat with a doppler. It only took the lady (an assistant in the room with Dr. Chamberlain) about 2 seconds to find the heartbeat! It was a really loud, strong heartbeat! It only lasted a split second, so they didn't measure the speed. Dr. Chamberlain said, "Wow, Isn't that a great sound? Nice, strong heartbeat!" and then he said, "So, there IS a baby in there. No wonder you've been sick!"
My next appointment is scheduled for Monday December 16th at 3 pm. Jesse will be there with me since it is also for our anatomy ultrasound! I'm very excited to find out the gender!
