14 Week Doctors Appointment

Jennifer went to the Dr. again today. She got a great bill of health. Little Pea also had a great checkup. His / her heartbeat was 164, which is high, but good. Apparently we have a very active little baby. The Dr. was having a hard time getting the heartbeat because LP wouldn't hold still. Does that sound familiar? We are very excited. Jennifer also found out that the pulling sensation she gets from time to time is perfectly normal. This is due the the ligaments that are trying to hold her now over sized uterus in place. She was a little worried, but feels much better about it now.
There was some big news that Jennifer received at her appointment. Nothing about her or LP, but she found out that her Dr. is actually pregnant. She is due 2 weeks before Jennifer. Needless to say, she will be on maternity leave when Jennifer is due and will not be able deliver the baby. We must now decide to switch Doctors, or to keep her Dr. and phase in another one who would end up doing the delivery. The problem is that Jennifer and I both really like her current Doctor. Any thoughts or Advice?
