So I saw the perinatologist on Monday and was a little disappointed. I'm seeing him because of Factor V Leiden with a history of a blood clot. I knew I would probably go on lovenox.
I asked his input about the H1N1 and regular flu vaccines. He just said "Get both immediately." I was hoping for some sort of conversation or at least the risks for and against it. Nothing!
Then I asked about having to get a chest x-ray for a TB clearance and he said I could get one now and it really isn't that risky for the baby. Then why do you always get asked if you are pregnant before they x-ray you? This didn't sit well with me either.
Lastly, this was the topping on the cake. He wanted me to do the 1 hour glucose test. I thought it was early for this and asked why and he said, "because you are overweight." Ok thanks. Is it standard to have it done that early if you are overweight?
Thanks for letting me vent!
