The consultation went very well. I sat down and discussed my concerns and the concerns of my OB for about 20 minutes with the perinatologist. He is attributing my lack of weight gain to my previous weight loss surgery. He says I may gain no more than 10 pounds for the entire pregnancy. Because of the small weight gain he wants to monitor Chloë by ultrasound around 28 weeks and 34 weeks. He's also concerned about my inability to complete a glucose tolerance test due to my inability to drink large amounts of sugar at one time. He said he would offer other alternatives to the normal method of testing to avoid any sickness for me. All in all, it was a great visit and I feel that Chloë and I are in good hands.
The doctor assured me that you're most likely doing fine and that even though Mommy is losing weight, you're going to continue to gain weight. I actually thought it would funny how you were doing flips during my appointment as if you were telling me that you're doing fine. I know I'll be seeing you in February and that's a date I am happily looking forward to.
