I called the OB this morning to get an appointment. When I finally got ahold of the receptionist I was shocked at how I was treated. I told her why I needed an appointment and instead of hearing a kind or sympathetic word, I was questioned as to why I didn't have a 20wk ultrasound. I was then told I would have to be treated as a new patient since I transferred out of their practice at 17wks pregnant and that she couldn't see me until June. I told her that I needed seen now. After being on hold for awhile, she came back very rudely and said fine, I can come in on Monday but that I better have my records from my midwife or the doctor won't see me. I got off the phone and bawled.

Today was spent getting ready for our annual development yard sale, but my heart just wasn't in it like previous years. Once again, my sweet children were such a huge help. They took care of doing a lot of the work on their own. I don't know what I would do without them!! I got together the bare minimum of things that I had to in between doing more research online about the cleft lip. I was disheartened to read that there was a good chance the palate was involved. Because that meant I may not be able to breastfeed the baby, which is a huge deal to me. So I started looking up ways I'd be able to breastfeed a baby with a cleft lip/palate and I was determined to do whatever it took to make sure my baby got breastmilk however possible.
