    I went this afternoon. Just a bellly measurement and a quick listen to baby's heartbeat. All was well.

    @scuba_chic hope it goes well with you tomorrow!

    @beach_mama good luck Wednesday!

  • I had a standard ob appointment today. I love quick appts! My bp was slightly elevated but not in the high range yet. I have a mfm appt and ob appt in January.

  • Busy week using up flex spending dollars!  Ophthalmologist for my dacryostenosis today, regular check up on Friday for measurements and Doppler then eye exams and ordering new glasses for dd and myself on Friday

  • We have AS number 2 on Thursday. Each baby had a potential issue to monitor on the first AS (OB isn’t concerned, but being watchful). Not sure if my being AMA is also a factor.

  • I have a glucose test on Wednesday. Hoping for good news on that.

  • I had my regular checkup today. All went well and dd2 (who is sick) nearly knocked over their damn tree. Luckily i still have reflexes like a cat or i would have been mortified.  :D

    Next appts are in a month and involve the glucose test + 2nd HIV screen which NJ requires, my follow up u/s to see if the placenta has moved and to check on baby's growth bc I'm at risk for pre-e again and then a normal 28w checkup. January will be busy.

  • Update on ophthalmologist- I now have a standing order for augmentin and erythromycin ointment so if my eye gets infected again (it’s happened 5 times since July) I don’t have to drive 80 miles to see him, I can just call his nurse and he’ll send it to the pharmacy.  I follow up with ent next month to rule out nasal polyps. Provided my nose is clear I will have a stent put in my tear duct during maternity leave. I’m so excited. My eye has been watering nonstop for 18 months!  The end is in sight!!!

  • Sounds like a lot of great visits this week!

    I have my routine 24w appointment tomorrow. It's a bit late, but I have to meet all the doctors in my new practice and I have off and need to meet the one doctor whose evening hours don't match up to my schedule. My next appointment should match up with 28w, I hope! They're not strict as long as I'm seen monthly until every 2 week appointments start. DD is excited to come hear the heartbeat!

    24 week check was mostly good but I’m being tested for ICP due since I mentioned feeling “phantom gallbladder” pains in my upper chest as well as itching in my legs. I was worried about verifose veins. She’s pretty confident it’s just dry skin from winter, but drew the labs to be safe. From what I’m reading many obs don’t even know to draw bile levels with itching. I’m so glad she’s on top of this!  Now how do I avoid doctor google until the results come in?!?

  • @riversdoctor I had some nasty itching back around 18ish weeks? They ordered the blood work for me and all turned out to be dry skin! Sending good thoughts that it's just the same for you!

  • @g_amoss thank you! DD loved it! They let her put on the gel and hold the doppler! I love my OB office! They are new to me, so I was worried as I hate change, but they are fabulous!

    I'm measuring a bit over 26 weeks, which was the only "issue." Doc said she thinks I'm just growing a bigger baby again, which always shocks them because I'm petite and still not really showing?

    Thanks!  Lab results came through, I’m getting mixed messages online.  My bile acids were at 10, and from what I’ve read either 10 or greater than 10 are the cutoff for normal.  I’m preparing emotionally to transition into a high risk pregnancy. Grieving a bit at the increased risk. I’m hoping she repeats the labs for me if they don’t consider it diagnostically significant. I know other moms on here are dealing with much more serious diagnoses for babies and I’m trying to keep perspective. 

    From what ive read best case scenario they do extra imaging and fetal monitoring later in pregnancy. I don’t see an OB currently so I’m thinking I’ll be referred on to the MFM from Rochester Mayo Clinic next (my healthcare is through the mayo system, since it’s so close the Rochester docs rotate through the clinic an hour from me.). If I have to deliver in Rochester i know I will have lots of support nearby, and places to stay for free if I have a NICU premie.
