My wife is pregnant and that is a good news. We and the whole family are extremely happy of this new addition to the big family.
My wife and me are married for 7 years and we have been trying for a baby. We pray everyday for a baby and 2 months ago, our gynecologist in Seattle (We live in Seattle for the last 30 years) told us the great news – we are going to have a baby! It was a routine visit to the Seattle OBGYN for a checkup. Then the doctor told us this great news. We were so excited and we asked the doctor many questions – is it a boy, or a girl; baby is healthy? what precautionary measure must we take? What food should we avoid? Any special diet to follow…etc? The doctor looked amused. To this Seattle OBGYN, we are probably like thousand of others that asked similar questions. But the gyneacologist patiently answered all our questions with a smile – aftar all, this is a great news to any couple.
We told that there are no special diet require. We should continue with whatever we are eating. We need to do more exercises (what’s new…). An active lifestyle is good for the baby. My wife and me are planning to start the yoga lesson and also we are going for regular swimming. It is time we make use of the swimming pool. We are also told to include some vitamins such as Folioc acid in our diet. This is good for the baby and it helps with the development of the brain. My wife was excited and took notes of everything the gynecologist said. I know my wife – she will certainly include all these vitamins in her daily food intake.
A Female OBGYN in Seattle
This doctor that did the check up is a female. My wife specifically asked for a lady OBGYN because she is uncomfortable with having a man (other than myself) touching her body. Fortunately for us, there are a few female gynecologists in Seattle. We visited a few of the female doctors and finally decided on this particular lady GYN. We choose her because this Seattle woman gynea has a good heart – she really care about her patients and is always patience. More importantly, we felt a connection with her and we can relate this parenthood journey with her. This probably the most important decision because she been caring and giving us a lot of advises and help. I think there is really a difference between a male and a female doctor. A female can probably identify with pregnancy and the challenges involve in the pregnancy journey a lot more because a woman understand. A male doctor will never know this kind of experiences as well as the female.
