First Obgyn Appointment

So my first Obgyn appointment went well!  I really liked Dr Steffi Hinz - she is nicely efficient, down to earth and matter of fact, but responded well to my desire for tlc. I think she will handle me fine and I already trust her. We went through all my history and she ran out of space on her form for previous problems LOL. She said I am at higher risk for hypertension and diabetes as my mum had both these, but that we shouldn't run into these problems before 30 weeks. She only wants to see me 4 weeks after the fetal assessment scan - gosh such a loooooooong wait! So my next appointment is 8 June only. How am I going to wait that long without seeing the little sweeties? Oh yes, and Dr Hinz wants me to stay on Cyclogest until 12 weeks!!!!! She says the placenta's are only fully formed at 12 weeks and because they are twins, she doesn't want something as silly as a progesterone issue complicating anything right now!!! Awesome.

Here they are today at 10 weeks...measuring 34.1mm and 10w2d or so...they were both bouncing up and down!!! First thing she said was, we have some happy little blighters LOL.


Next scan: Tuesday 26 April with Prof
Then Fetal Assessment Scan the following Monday on 9 May...

  5. Hi, I came here from ToloveBella. Just wanted to say congrats on your pregnancy and all the best for the rest of this journey. Two of my friends have had Dr Hinz as obgyn and I have to say that you are in great hands.

  6. Hi, I have been recommended Dr Hinz as a gynae/obs and just wanted some feedback from you as to how she handles the whole natural birth option? Some gynae's push moms towards caesar which i DONT want at all......kindly let me know your feelings! congrats on the twins! thats so amazing!

  7. when I had my 1st little one, every baby in the Kingsbury maternity ward that weekend (that's 9) was born C-section. I felt robbed. I since changed gynae's. Can anyone comment on dr Steffi Hinz on whether she supports VBAC (Vaginal birth after Cesearian)?
