Need a New Doctor? Find the Right One for You ( Momimhar posted on May 5th, 2016 )

newborn

Finding a doctor is something that almost everybody dreads. The fact is that there are a million great doctors out there, but finding one just doesn’t seem like a great experience. After all, where do you even start when you’re looking for a doctor to help you take care of your health.

If you’re looking for a specialist, the job of finding the right person can be even more difficult. For example, women trying to find a Cypress gynecologist may feel like they just don’t know where to turn.

Luckily, finding a doctor really isn’t as hard as it seems. Use this guide to help you find the person you need to stay healthy.

Ask Around

Looking for any kind of doctor can be taxing, especially when you’re in a small town and you don’t have thousands of them to call right out of the phone book. That phone book method isn’t always the best anyway though.

Instead of calling random doctors and wasting time on people you don’t really want to work with, ask friends and family if they can recommend somebody to you. It might seem like it’s a bit too personal, but if they love their doctor, they’ll be happy that you’re getting quality medical care like they are.

Of course, the opposite is true as well, and if you ask a friend or family member for a referral, they’ll probably tell you if they don’t like their existing doctor much. That way you can cross that person off your list and go on to somebody who might be a better fit for you.

Talk to Existing Doctors

It might not make sense to ask your dentist about a gynecologist, but the truth is that most doctors know a whole network of others. While they may not know as many people outside of their field, they probably do have a colleague they can recommend to you.

A referral from a medical professional that you trust really can go a long way. Don’t be afraid to ask any doctor that you know for a referral to a specialist or somebody who handles different ailments and issues than they do.

Of course, you might not want to ask your existing general practitioner for a referral to another, but you probably already knew that, right?

A Pregnancy Guide That Helps ( Momimhar posted on November 15th, 2012 )

When I was done editing the new set of pictures to be sent to my family thru email, I looked at infant photos of my darling daughter.  It really touched my heart seeing her newborn and infant photos where I captured every milestones.

I also looked at my photos when I was pregnant.  The first trimester was not that hard for me.  I did not get morning sickness like some pregnant women get all the time.  Well, maybe I had nausea for a day or two but that was it.  Besides doctor’s advice and recommendations plus family and friends’ inspiring help, I had What To Expect When You’re Expecting book – a pregnancy guide book that helps expectant mothers along pregnancy.  This book has helpful guides in every chapter as what pregnant women have to deal with during pregnancy.

Pregnancy is a delicate situation.  And expectant mothers have to take care of themselves.  The book also have suggestions on how to maintain a healthy pregnancy.  I had complications when I was pregnant.  Reading the pregnancy guide book has helped me understand how a woman’s body goes thru a lot of changes during pregnancy.  And these changes sometimes lead to complications and depression.  To me, a well-guided pregnancy and strong support system (family and friends) can prevent depression.  What To Expect When You’re Expecting is a book that I highly recommend as reading material to expectant mothers out there.  And that includes my sister-in-law, Jennifer. 🙂

Oh how time flies by so fast.  My daughter is turning two.  My newborn is now a toddler and growing fast and smart.  So proud of her.

Expecting A New Addition To The Family ( Momimhar posted on November 5th, 2012 )

We are expecting a new addition to the family because my sister-in-law is pregnant and she’s due early next month.  We are excited to see the new baby.  Her eldest child is 5 years old now.  She did not mention about the baby’s gender but I am hoping it’s a girl.

I remember when I was in the third trimester of pregnancy and four weeks close to my due date.  The doctor advised me to limit my traveling because labor is just right around the corner.  And then I packed my hospital bag ready for the upcoming delivery.  It is really a big help when the hospital bag is ready because when labor comes, the husband or a family can grab it anytime.

Here’s what I brought with me (things available at that time and I really needed):

For Baby

1.  A Going-home outfit

2.  Receiving blanket

3.  Car seat

4.  Ready-to-feed milk if your breast milk supply is low

For Labor, Delivery, and After Delivery

1.  Documents like ID, insurance ID, hospital paperwork

2.  Toiletries and personal items like shampoo, soap, makeup, lip balm, comb, toothpaste and toothbrush, deodorant…

3.  Robe, socks, slippers

4.  A Going-home outfit

5.  Underwear

6.  Reading material like pregnancy guide book

For Husband

1.  Extra shirt and jeans

2.  Underwear

3.  Socks

4.  Toiletries

5.  Camera, batteries, and charger

6.  Cellphone and charger

7.  Snacks

8.  Money

We brought the listed necessities above according to what my husband and I really needed.  Of course, I based this on Babycenter.com’s packing list for the hospital or birth center.  I can say that it’s a helpful guide.

I am praying for my sister-in-law’s safe and successful delivery.  I hope she’ll have a very easy and short labor.

New Baby Is Coming Soon ( Momimhar posted on October 5th, 2012 )

My sister-in-law is expecting.  It’s gonna be her second baby.  My mom said she’s due in December.  So when we’re there during our vacation, we will be welcoming the new addition to the family.

My sister-in-law had an ultrasound but she did not tell us the baby’s gender yet.  Hmm…is this a part of the surprise?  Well, we are excited for new baby in the family.  Wishing her and the baby good health always.  We hope and pray for her successful delivery.  I am not sure if my sister-in-law will have the baby at home or in the hospital.  But I suggest that she deliver the baby in the hospital for proper care.

The New Baby Is Here! ( Momimhar posted on August 23rd, 2012 )

My cousin gave birth to a healthy baby girl yesterday afternoon.  She had an induced delivery again.  We thought she will experience labor on the second pregnancy.  The baby’s due date was August 21.  But the her doctor said that if she won’t be into labor, she’ll be induced on the 22nd. We’re pretty excited.

My daughter and I came over to their house for a visit and see the new baby.  Oh she’s so adorable!  Reminds me of my little girl when she came out.  I got to hold the baby and, oh she was so tiny.  I felt a little emotional looking at my darling daughter growing up so fast.

My cousin’s recovery is pretty quick because she had normal delivery.  What she has to deal with right now is taking care of two kids-toddler and a newborn.  Plus, baby blues attacks without notice.  Well, it’s her second baby and I know she can handle everything.  But I am here to help her.  She knows that.  Motherhood ain’t easy.

Our toddlers get along very well so I hope the new baby, when she gets bigger, will be happy to play with them.  Boy, three little girls.  My husband said that there will be three drama queens in addition to me and my cousin.  Blah!!! Whatever.  😀
