  • So what is your question? No just wait till wednesday and see what your doctor (that you like) has to say.

  • Okay firstly, you are going to the specialist for his expertise and the baby is doing great because of his guidance. So even with a clash of personality, if your dr wants you to continue to see him, keep going. Your baby is trusting you.
    Secondly, pick whichever dr you MOST trust and go with their recommendations. Your intuition will tell you which one knows his stuff and which one doesn't

  • My question is, why would the doctor tell you taking your iron pills and eating foods with iron is bad for you? Because iron makes you constipated? Thats the only thing I can think of & that can easily be taken care of with colace (sp?) and fiber rich foods.
    Because of your condition, I'd switch to a different specialist instead of not seeing one at all. I've switched doctors 3 times already because I didn't have trust for the other 2. Just because your baby is doing great now, doesn't mean it will be doing great a couple weeks down the road. I pray that you have a healthy baby, of course, but I don't think you should stop seeing a specialist.
    Talk to your doctor wednesday & express any concerns you may have then.
    Good luck!
