...and he said everything looked perfect!!! We found out on Friday that we were having a boy, but of course I still didn't know what the final verdict was on everything else. He said that all of the anatomy, placenta, fluids, cervix, everything was great and I was measuring perfectly. He also said that he is going to keep seeing me for now (and not send me to the high risk OB ) because they didn't feel my BP/pre-pre-E was an issue yet! That is such a relief...makes me so happy. So I go back to him on April 5th (22 weeks) for a regular appt. and he said they will do the glucose test early, at around 24 weeks just to make sure everything is OK. And he said he will want another ultrasound at around 28 weeks to check on things again.
It's so weird...having experienced no real problems yet but I'm being treated as though there's a good chance I will develop problems. All I can say is I'm so happy that my Dr. is going the extra mile to stay ahead of the game and do the extra testing, u/s, whatnot, just to make sure everything is good. He can poke and prod me all he wants, order a million tests, anything to keep my baby boy healthy.
I know a lot of women look at pregnancy as completely natural, want as little intervention as possible, want a home birth...all of that (which I think is awesome!) but I know that will never be me. I wish I could have come into this pregnancy with no issues and just been blissfully ignorant, but the reality is I've had 2 losses, some diagnosable problems, and borderline high BP very, very early. It's not perfect, but I have renewed hope that everything is going to be OK.
Oh! That's wonderful news! I hope you can sigh a little sigh of relief now! It's wonderful that your doctor is going to extra mile to stay on top of you pregnancy to catch anything that could go wrong and try to prevent that! What a wonderful OB! I hope everything continues to go well and congrats on you little boy!
I'm glad everything is going so well! Remember - even with 2 loses (mine were about the same age as yours) it doesn't mean your body is a lemon! Look how good your little boy is! Your beautiful body is growing that!
Thank you Kiliki for my first beautiful Siggie!

Also, it sounds like your doctor is amazing! IF problems do occur later on, you can almost guarantee that because of his proactive approach, the consequences of those problems, won't be as bad.. which is great. My high-risk ob is doing the same with me... the one I saw last time said I didn't really need to be seen, but that because there is a *slight* risk of problems, that they'll treat me like a normal high risk patient... and that made me feel really good, because i'm such an anxious, nervous person - so it's good to know that I"m having a close eye kept on me!
