I had my 34 week appt today. I still feel in the dark about this pgcy. Even though I'm being seen in high-risk now (GD again!) they aren't doing any ultrasounds. The last one I had was only done because I was worried about how big baby is going to be from my GD, and that would help me decide if I wanted to attempt VBAC, since I'm already not the best candidate due to my last c/s being within 2 years of this one, and my age. My peri did a head circumference but not an abdominal one, which would have given me a better indication of weight. HC was measuring 3 weeks ahead. So yes, I'm concerned this will be a big baby! It seems like other moms with GD get regular growth scans, so I am confused why my doctor isn't doing them for my baby.

Also, I noticed my peri's head was shaking today, and her hands a tiny bit. This is only the second time I've seen her since she delivered my twins 20 months ago - sadly, it looks like she has MS, or Parkinson's, or...? However, I'm nervous about having someone with any kind of shaking-hand disease doing a c/s on me. I am getting really worried now. I don't want to switch to yet another peri or OB so late in my pgcy.

Thanks for listening, sorry for venting!

Oh hun - I am sorry you feel so worried. I can understand your concerns for sure. Are they for or against you attempting a VBAC? Do you think that has anything to do with why they aren't doing the scans...like maybe if they don't, you will be more willing to schedule a c-sec? I would try to find out their reasoning & see if they are willing to work with you on this. I don't blame you for wanting more info to weigh it out. As far as your Peri's hand shaking - if you don't feel comfortable asking her could you ask someone in the office maybe? That would make me uneasy too. Maybe she has a nervous tick though & was just having a bad day. I had an art teacher that is like that. Sometimes when she has something particularly stressful going on or when she gets too much caffeine she will almost look like she has early stage Parkinson's but most times she is steady...and she does amazing artwork, so she has to be steady for that.
