I switched OB's at 34 weeks, and it wasn't stressful at all. Just call around to OB's who deliver at the hospital you want to go to (you might have to ask where they deliver when they call), ask any other questions that are important to you, maybe get some recommendations from friends, and just make an appointment. The OB you're seeing now may charge you a fee (usually about $20) to transfer your records, but all you have to do is fill out a paper saying you're allowing it and where you want them sent, and they do the rest (unless you want to pick them up and take them yourself). And when you see the new OB, he/she will probably go over your records with you, let you ask any questions you have, and after that it will be normal appointments like you'd been seeing them all along. Really nothing to stress over about the actual transfer.
