Questions for FTM, STM+? When does the doctor check out things down below? Mine hasn't been down there since my first appointment and I'm curious as to if that's normal.
@Kathryn0903 how did they diagnose the
preecclampsia? Did you talk to them
about the swelling and headaches or did they mention something?
@littlebug2010 I wonder what she even means by your belly
looking “strange”? My baby was totally
on my right side at my last appt and my belly was visibly lopsided and the NP
just goes “oh it’s hanging out over here right now!” … So even though my stomach did look weird,
she still made it sound totally normal.
I would not be happy with the OB if they said that so I’m glad that you
complained and that the clinic is aware of the OB’s bedside manner!
@DeansGirl14 I love watching drama fights haha. It’s like reality tv right in front of you!
@Feliciosity I hope you’re able to draw a hard line on
visitors. I feel lucky almost that my
closest family is 2,100 miles away so no one will be able to just drop in at
the hospital. Also, our hospital has an
option to give a list of “allowed” or a list of “absolutely not allowed” people
and then they monitor the people coming in and out. Maybe your hospital will do that and only
allow the parents and close family and friends?
@secicc12 sorry about all the monitoring for the high BP,
but I’m glad that you’re so close to the hospital and can work at home! I’m super jealous of that ability!
@Mango517 Did they make any recommendations for you to
gain some more weight? Sorry that you
felt it wasn’t the best but hopefully you got to hear the heartbeat and know
that baby is healthy in there!
@kvh22 at my last appt, I asked the NP how and when they’ll
check the position and she said they can feel around and tell. She poked around and was able to tell me that
at 32 weeks the baby was head down.
Obviously, this can change but it was nice to know that baby is at least
currently doing what it’s supposed to!
@mrsjqg1024 I’m sorry about the contractions. Do you notice if they come more when dehydrated
or over working? I notice I cramp more
when my water intake is down so I have to focus on drinking a lot of water to
get them to subside.
@mrsmatt1212 I have stretch marks already, too, and I
think they are SO NOTICEABLE. But DH
just laughs and either actually can barely notice them or he’s a good liar
