Hindsight

I've been on the same insurance for all three of my pregnancies. For my first two pregnancies, I went to the same doctor's office (it was a practice of five doctors that rotated). When I found out I was pregnant this time around, I thought I'd take a look again at the list of doctors that I could go to. It wasn't that I had a problem with my first doctor's office, I just thought I'd try something different.

I got a recommendation from a friend and I called that doctor. She wasn't taking any new patients at that time, but they told me that another doctor in their office was. I called my friend back and asked if she knew anything about this other doctor and she said that she had never had him, but she knew people who did who really liked him. So I went with that doctor.

Looking back, I wonder how much was me really just thinking, hmmm, I'll try something new, and how much was inspiration from Heavenly Father.

First, my doctor is of the same faith as me. Second, it's much more individualized care having one doctor versus five rotating doctors. And additionally, the more I learn, the more I'm finding out from others how great my doctor is. I may have already said this, but he used to work at a very high-risk hospital and he handles a lot of the high-risk pregnancies in the area and he's one of the best in the area.

I'm so grateful for guidance from Heavenly Father that doesn't always make itself obvious at first.

I like to think these are the tender mercies of the Lord.

Our lives are filled with them because He loves us that much :)
