I am happy to say that I heard back from my doctor before I thought I would! He told me that he talked to the head of maternity care, and they recommended that I schedule an appointment with one of their lactation consultants who has experience in inducing lactation! So I called them yesterday, and scheduled an appointment for Nov 27th.
It feels so far away, but I’m glad that I will hopefully be able to start the medications that day, and finally get going on this process.
I feel like I may have taken a tad bit too long getting started, but I was too nervous to get started too soon, and then for something bad to happen. But hindsight is 20/20, and I’m just glad to get going on this now!
I’m happy to be seeing someone in the lactation department, because I know they will know the best about all this stuff, and I’m really happy that the person I will be seeing has experience! They will also be able to recommend/rent/sell me the best pump and other paraphernalia.
I don’t know why, really, but I just feel so giddy; maybe because I finally figured out who and where to go to.
And we still have our next OB appointment next Tuesday! And we’ll get to see the little gummy bears again!
We’re in a good place right now, so might as well enjoy it!
