September Appointments

Re: September Appointments

  • Has anyone had any experiences where they should have fasted before a pre-natal blood test? Some of my appointments are early
    morning and some are evening so I’m eating before but not sure if that affects anything. 
  • @liligirl87 If they need you to fast, they should tell you that. The only one I needed to fast for last time was the glucose test to check for gestational diabetes. I recommend scheduling that as early in the day as you can.

  • @mercury94 Good to know! Thanks! I’m sure I’m just being paranoid. So far the dr’s office has been on top of things but the mind wanders in between appointments 😬 Helpful tip for the glucose test. Anything to avoid the longer version!
  • Haha @sanpelligrino. I only got cervical checks once I was in labor. 
  • @coaster102516 and @babybison I literally hate the speculum because it gives PTSD from my 5 IUIs. At my OB appointment yesterday they inserted one too, to check the health of the cervix. I really hope this is it. Well my breast exam hurt too, i felt like everything was sore and the OB really pushed hard on it.

  • My OB asked about my last Pap and I was like nope nope nope just had that done thank you let's move on. 
  • Had my ultrasound and first appointment with OB today. Baby has a strong heartrate and is measuring exactly on track. EDD didn't even change. I had pre-eclampsia last pregnancy, so OB is having me do an EKG just to make sure things are good. I was reccomended B6 for my nausea, so I may try that.

  • Had my appointment with the high risk doctor today. Everything was fine, BP was up a little but I was also drinking a coffee lol. He noticed my thyroid levels were a little low, which I guess can be normal in early pregnancy, so I'm going to have some synthroid for a couple of weeks and then get it checked again. He also sent a request for the dating ultrasound and said it would probably be next week (I have to wait for the hospital to call).
    When I got home I called the OB clinic I go to and made my first appointment. They scheduled me for October 1, which is a little early, since I'm high risk. I don't mind having my appointment a little early.

    happy early birthday! That is the date of my first appointment too.  What a sweet present for you.

      I should be right about 9 weeks.  All I know is they told me I’ll be having an ultra sound and then I’ll be seeing my doctor!
  • @ejoseph16 sending you good, calming thoughts!

    I’m right there with you! My appointment is at 9:20 am and I could barely sleep last night. I was anxiously waiting for this appointment for 3 weeks, now that it’s here I’m so so nervous. I’m literally crying just thinking about it.

    Today is is an emotional and exciting day!

  • @ 9 weeks they tried to find baby on a transvaginal but my uterus was sitting too high and they couldn't get a clear picture. Switched to abdominal and there was baby with a strong heartbeat! a bit nerve-wracking for me.
