Once you go to meet with your doctor, talk to some women in the waiting room, most will openly tell you their favorite/ least favorite doctor in the practice. Also ask them what they like most/least about the practice. Again, most women will gladly offer up their opinion on this issue!
Happy doctor hunting!

Also some Rx pre-natal vitamins can cost $50-80 a month! Know that you do not have to go with these. I loved Pre-Nate Elite but the price went from $20/month to $60/month, so I got the generic. Ask your doctor if there is a generic for the brand or if you can take an OTC pre-natal vitamin like One a Day or even a store brand. No sense in going broke before your little money sucker arrives! But DO take a pre-natal vitamin everyday.
Ok, so I don't have any of these yet but am looking into getting a few to stave off muffin top. Be Band and Bella Band now also have tummy smoothing tank tops. My friend Megan also recently posted on her blog Modern Mom (http://Modermom1.blogspot.com) about Yummie Tummie (www.yummietummie.com) a new brand of high end shape wear that promises to smooth out your midsection. If you're in that weird stage of pregnancy where you look more like you have a beer gut than a baby on board...you might want to consider this.
