When is your next appointment and what is it for? Are you seeing your dr every 2 weeks now?

I have my 30 week appointment tomorrow. I get to do my 3 hour glucose test while I'm there which I'm really hoping that I will pass. Dr said this will mostly just be a talking appointment to talk about any questions or concerns I have. they will of course check weight, blood pressure, baby's heartrate and take a urine sample. I still have't decided if I'm going to get the DTAP or not. I am going to talk to dr about getting it when we are in the hospital after he is born.

Thank you *Kiliki* for my beautiful siggy

I had a midwife appointment yesterday. Just a regular check up, Bp, baby's heart beat and measurements all normal. I got my consent form for my vbac. This was my 3rd appointment going every 2 weeks. I go back in 2 weeks and then I'll have another 2 weeks appointment after that, then I'm on weekly.

My next appt is on monday at 930. She wasn't pleased with my lack of weight gain and blood pressure last time, so we're doing a growth scan (crossing fingers and hoping everything is going well in there!), and then I'll have a regular appt.

My blood pressure is creeping up and I know she will not be happy about that, she makes me nervous about it. It's not high enough for meds, but she says it might get there. And then the placenta is much less efficient (that would be why i'm nervous) so that's a big concern with growth.

This one was three weeks from the last one, but now they will be more frequent, especially with her keeping an eye on my blood pressure. I'm hoping not to go more than once every two weeks.

I've been going every 2 wks for a while now.
I had an apt this morning with my regular OB- checked heartbeats which are good, urine sample, weight (I'm up 38lbs now), and BP. I had them retake my BP because the first time it was 158/87. They took it again and it was 128/70. I get all nervous about it!
I also talked to my dr about delivery. She's going to give me a different OB's info that's affiliated with Children's hospital because that's where I want to deliver since they have the best nicu in the area, and it's very likely one or both will need it. My regular OB doesn't deliver there, so I can at least meet this dr ahead of time.
I have another growth scan tomorrow with my high risk OB, so fingers crossed they're both still growing! I'll post an update tomorrow.

I've been going every two weeks. My next appointment isn't until a couple days after Christmas. Its just a regular prenatal check up and scheduling the csection which was supposed to be scheduled a month ago. Apparently my chart says something about my csection needing to be discussed and that it's not scheduled yet.. Whatever that means. I thought my dr was gonna schedule it a month ago when we last talked about it and he sounded like he was gonna let me go 10 days past my due date so I'd have a semi fair shot at a vbac. Wishful thinking here, but maybe he's just not scheduling me since that's what I really want and he knows that, but I doubt I'd be so lucky lol.

I went in on Monday and now I am going in every WEEK. Crazy!

My appointment went well. Low BP and baby's heart was in the 140's. He is head down, which I am so excited about! I measures 29cm two weeks in a row so I was hoping to have some groth this time to avoid another u/s. We grew to 33 cm!!

Our next appointment is the day after Christmas. He's going to take a look at the blood sugar numbers I've been taking at home. Other than that it's going to be a normal appointment. I'm going in every two weeks now.

Just had one on Tuesday 12/17, everything is normal but guess what? The little rascal flipped on me and is now head up! Doc said no big deal at this point but gosh, there is no way I want to do a C! I will do everything in my power to get her flipped down if she doesn't do it by the time it is important.

Anyway, everything else is perfect. I am very fortunate. Next appt is 1/8 when he will check my cervix, woo hoo!! Then I assume it will be every two weeks after that.

I had an appt today, been going every two weeks for the last few appts, won't go weekly for a few more weeks.

Everything was great today. Measuring on target. Baby girl is head down and huddled up on my right side(she seems to like it there, I can feel her little butt to the right of my belly button all the time). Said my blood pressure has been exceptional so they are going to leave me alone and let my body do it's thing unless it starts rising. Weight was great, still haven't gained any.
He was about to start discussing the Tdap shot but then quickly dismissed it because I can't have it for medical reasons. He said he definitely doesn't want me seizing up. Lol I was like "yeah, no thanks!"
He said baby girl was the most cooperative baby of the day for checking HB.

My next appt is in two weeks on January 2nd.

DH (34)
DS1 (10)
DD (2)
DS2 (Due in May!!)

I have my next appointment on Christmas Eve. It's my fortnightly visit. I'll get the results of my 2 hour GD test (oh please oh please let me pass,) and she'll just do all the regular checks she does.

My next appt is dec 30th and I'm going every two weeks. So far everything is going as planned as of my last appt I've gained just under 25lbs but started bigger than I would like to. Her heartbeat and. Measurements continue to be on track. Only issue I have to deal with at this point is that about a year ago I had an abnormal pap and it has been getting better but they wanna check just in case and I'm hoping no biopsy needed or other intervention.
