Weekly Appointments 12.26

Sorry, forgot to post yesterday

Re: Weekly Appointments 12.26

  • I have an appointment with the foot doctor tomorrow to see how long I need to be on crutches, and on Thursday I have a regular OB with a brief ultrasound to capture some pictures they missed at my anatomy scan. I'm guessing I'll also probably be scheduling my glucose test soon.

  • Last "every 4 weeks" OB appointment tmrw. I definitely plan to ask her about a weird rash I seem to have gotten, it's almost like hives but not raised at all.

  • Glucose test this morning.
  • @mrsstuessy what's the rhogam shot?

  • @wagnerw My blood type is A- and DH is O+, which means that our babies could be positive. Normally during pregnancy the baby's blood and mother's blood don't mix. But, in the case of a miscarriage or during birth the blood could get mixed. Basically any time the baby might bleed a little there is a chance. If positive blood gets mixed with my negative blood my body will make antibodies to attack any future positive blood. So, it is mostly a precaution for future pregnancies. If my body makes antibodies it could attack a future baby in my body. The shot is a blood product that stops my body from attacking positive blood. So, with my pregnancies I get one shot around 28 weeks and another shot the day after the baby is born, unless they test the baby's blood and it is also a negative type. The shot has a freaking big ass needle though which kind of sucks.

  • @mrsstuessy wow! My grandmother had the same issue when pregnant with my mom. I don't remember what the options were back in the 60s but it was a big deal then too. I'm glad you've got the shot option even though it doesn't sound fun at all.

  • @mrsstuessy Wow! I am glad they have options to help with those scenarios but that does not sound fun (the needle or the stress).  :(

  • @mrsstuessy weren't they monitoring your baby for being on the smaller side?  Am I remembering that right?

    If so, 40th percentile sounds great! Will you need to do any further monitoring?

    @mrsstuessy I have to get the rhogam too. I had it after my loss in July, and now have to do it at my 28 week appt on Jan 12. Do they do yours in your butt? I've been told that helps a lot! And to massage the area after the injection for a little while. The dumbest part is I am O- and my husband is A-, but they say they would rather just have me get the shot than try to prove DH blood type even though it's a military hospital and his blood type is on file. I think they are worried there could always be a chance it's someone else's baby haha. Thanks, military. Bleh for extra injections.

  • @twistsandturnsto2 Thanks! I am so happy to not have anything to worry about. I mean, nothing that I should legitimately worry about. There are always small worries. Just trying to get through the next 3 months. :)
