Today was my first OB appt. It was a total letdown compared to the RE appts. No u/s first off. I did get to hear Cletus' heartbeat thru the Doppler. It took awhile for the nurse to find it. I thought maybe if she couldn't find it, I would get an u/s. Nope, she eventually found it. Sounded ok, hard to tell thru the static of the doppler. Dr. T came in did a few questions & reviewed my chart. First thing he said to me though was, "That was quick". Dude, it has been 3.5 yrs. That is not quick in my book. Yes, maybe it was quick sine the last loss, but we were both tired of waiting. Anyway, I put up with that & he kept asking me if I had any questions. Nope, things are going good. I have lost 7 lbs so far, but that is ok since I am overweight to begin with. So next appt in 4 weeks. The shocking thing was that I actually got out of his office in less than 1 hr!!!! 57 min actually. I have never been able to do that before with him. It is always at least 1.5 hrs. He must have known he was on a time table with me today. I also got out of the PAP for today, so overall a good appt. Just not the same as Dr. B. I was just another patient today.
Now for a bit of freakishness that always seems to follow me wherever in this pregnancy. For the past 4 weeks, I have gotten sick every Friday. No other day of the week do I feel bad or feel the need to be sick. Happened again this past Friday too. Maybe I should've taken Dr. T up on his offer to shorten my work hours already. Every Friday off wouldn't be too bad!
Also everyone feel free to give Rich a hard time for not going with me today. He thought he would be gone too long. Boo hoo for him. Other dads were there today. I wasn't really excited about going today either, but I had to.
Today is also pregnancy and infant loss rememberance day. Please give a little thought to all the little ones not with us today. We are thinking of you today BB & Autumn.
