Coming from India, where medical profession is not so regulated, Canada is a huge change. We didn’t have a family doctor yet, but with the pregnancy, things get into a fast forward mode for us.
We haven’t had to experience the infamous wait times etc in Canada yet (fingers and toes crossed that we don’t). We did have to wait for 2 -3 weeks for our first appointment with the family doctor. But once that happened, things fell into place quite easily. Our family doctor referred us to a great ob-gyn and she works right across from my office!!
By this time, I have made a few acquaintances at work. Haven’t announced my pregnancy yet, waiting for the first trimester to get over as they say the chances of miscarriage are pretty high then. I am still on probation and mulling to myself if I should tell the manager about the pregnancy before probation is over. I decide not to, because of the first trimester thing again.
Trying to go for a walk everyday. Work is new and I am learning and doing a lot ; really enjoying my work but three words play constantly in my head – I am pregnant.
