Not overly eventful. Got my paperwork for blood testing, talked to him about floor varnish and hydronephrosis.. lol

I was relieved to know that we'll be doing an ultrasound on my kidneys earlier on this time around, so we can catch any potential hydronephrosis and treat it early.

And, I mentioned our office is putting new hardwood floor around, and he said I need to be away from the fumes for at least 48 hours after it is done...but if I still cannot tolerate it, he will write me a note to keep me out of office longer.

Then my doctor drops this bomb on me: "We have a nice, new ultrasound machine in our office now, so at your next appointment (8 weeks), we'll be able to take a look at baby!"



In this province, GP's (or even OB's!) having an ultrasound in office isn't overly common, and having an ultrasound early on is super uncommon for non-medical reasons!

I'm not a huge fan of early u/s's, but I am SO tempted to see baby at my next appointment! I never thought that would be a possibility!

At 22 weeks, I ended up in the ER in pretty bad pain. After some tests, I found out that my uterus was blocking the flow of my ureter coming from my right kidney. It was so bad that my kidney couldn't drain (which could cause damage). I needed a few surgeries throughout my pregnancy to put in and replace a stent in my ureter.

I guess all pregnant women do have some degree of hydronephrosis during pregnancy, but it's typically harmless and un-noticed, but mine was quite severe.

Hope all goes well with the kidney too. It's good that they are keeping an eye on it this time around.

Bleh I had issues with hydronephrosis in my last pregnancy also, not serious enough to require surgery just enough to cause some pretty bad pain.

Woohoo for seeing baby, if you decide to that is
