  • @middleschoolmommy I may be crazy, but do you mean 5cm? 5mm sounds really small. I’m having a follow up scan tomorrow and I was thinking about asking more about cervical length but I guess I don’t really know what’s normal.

  • No appointments this week other than the painful Makena shot this Friday.  The injection wasn't nearly as painful as the first one I got, but my bottom was very sore until late Saturday.

  • @Amber1174 mine was less painful also. The nurse that gave it to me this time said it's usually better when in dominant arm (I know yours are in your hip :/)  so you work the meds into the muscle quicker. I was still sore for 2-3 days, but the initial injection didn't hurt as much.

    Routine monthly checkup
    Questions/Comments/Concerns:
    Concerned about getting that dang 3 hour glucose test done. It feels like just when I think I can schedule it, something else requires my attention (between family and work, life seems just crazy this summer). Other than that, just hoping to hear that heartbeat on the doppler.

    What is being addressed?
    Anatomy scan.  We're not finding out the sex.  I'm also expecting them to tell me if my placenta has moved away from my cervix and if I still have previa or something else going on.

    Questions/Comments/Concerns:
    Very very little feeling of movement...hence wondering what the hell my placenta is doing

  • When is your appointment?
    MFM tomorrow (Tuesday) afternoon & OB Friday

    How far along will you be? 
    18w 4d (tomorrow) and 19w (Friday)

    What is being addressed?
    MFM is a scan to make sure both twins are growing like they should, monitor my Placenta Previa, and meet with the MFM doc and care manager. Then Friday is just my standard visit with my OB - although, I'll be meeting with an alternate provider - again - as she isn't available. 

    Questions/Comments/Concerns:
    Just annoyed that most of the monitoring for my pregnancy is going to fall in the MFM office and that it'll cost me a co-pay every time I go - which is a lot (see my Monday BF post). I wish they would just transfer my care fully to the MFM office as my primary OB doesn't seem to know much about twin pregnancies and never seems to be available for my appointments, anyway. And when she's not available, I end up seeing an APP from MFM in my OB office anyway.

    I had a disappointing first appointment with the MFM.

    First, I had to wait 2 hours past my appointment time to be seen, then I barely got to see baby on the ultrasound (which was all of 3 minutes long) because he was busy asking me questions that I'd already answered for the nurse (plus baby was facing the ultrasound wand, so he looked like the Terminator and I couldn't see his face well), then he tried to force me into taking Lovenox for my MTHFR when every other doctor I've ever seen had said it's essentially a non-issue and then they rushed me out and when I asked about my anatomy scan (I'm 19+3 today), the nurse said she "guessed" he'd "probably" do it at my next appointment when I'll be over 23 weeks.

    WTF, people?!

    My OB wanted to do my anatomy scan tomorrow, but decided not to since I was seeing the MFM and he'd do it instead and now I have to wait another 4 weeks.  I tried calling my OB to ask about the anatomy scan and the office is closed for lunch for 3 hours.  By the time they reopen and I have time to call them, they'll be closing for the day and they only do ultrasounds on Tuesdays and Thursdays, so I need to get ahold of them ASAP.

    Today is not my day. :expressionless:

    What is being addressed?
    Second anatomy scan, go over MFM appt

    Questions/Comments/Concerns
    So, to start off, I have another UTI. This is my second one in about 2(ish) weeks. Doc said That if I get another one close to this, then I will go on a small dose of antibiotics for the rest of my pregnancy. I'm puffy, which concerns me since I spend most of my time inside and I drink about a gallon of water per day. My Dr even noticed it. I have to do a 24 your urine catch, which I'm not looking forward to. They took my labs again, as i have to get them done once per month. 
    My anatomy scan went well. Baby boy was curled up super low and wasn't very cooperative. Again, it was hard getting pics of his heart. She saw all 4 chambers, but not a very clear pic. I'm trying not to freak out about the heart pics. I will have another u/s in probably 4 ish weeks to check on it, since he will be bigger and hopefully wont hide it so much. He weighs about 12 oz, he grew 3 oz in 2 weeks! I go back to my Dr in 2 weeks for a blood pressure check. So, all in all, not the most routine appt, but I'm being managed within an inch of my life, which is fine with me. 

    Sorry this was so long.

    @highsteaks I’m sorry you got some rough news about B. I hope that the kidney won’t need major surgery and that all is well and healthy otherwise. It sounds like you’re handling it really well. Healthy thoughts to the twins!

  • @highsteaks So sorry to hear the news about baby B's kidney, but I'm so glad they have you on extra monitoring so they can figure out what might need to be done. I'm praying that she won't have to endure surgery as an infant. Perhaps it's possible that things might resolve a bit as she grows bigger? I'll be keeping you in my thoughts and prayers. Keep us updated!
