pregnancy over 35



well, as most of u know..I'm in the process of OB shopping..again. Since my RE passed away 5days ago. went to this Dr who was recommended by my RE's nurse she said he was trained by him..ok..
so I go in..Dr is nice, educated and a lil old around early 50s I'd say. he asked the usual questions history etc etc..then he examined my stomach weight, hight and chest.
he said general health is good but stomach is quite hard - indication of cramping -  which I'v been feeling mildly..he asked me to stay on complete bed rest for a couple of days until he identifies the cause of it. took a urine sample for culture in case its another UTI
then he said that I'v gained SO much weight..funny cuz RE (God rest his soul) thought I wasn't gaining enuf..well I think 8 kgs isnt too much and isn't little either..blaah!..don't care.
I must say he scared the living **** out of me claiming I will most likely have a scheduled c section cuz of my weight! WTH! is it this bad?!!? also because I'm having cramps now I might go into labour early!..
dunno what to think..I'm feeling a lil depressed right now that everything isn't going like it shud b..not sure if I'm going back to c him again..what do u ladies think?  oh he also asked me to take progesterone suppositories again is he for real!!
I need advice can't think straight n for some reason can't stop freaking out..is it so bad that Im having mild cramps and heaviness right now? is it the braxton hicks? he claims its not possible to get them until ur in ur 8th month..what about all the articles n books we've read don't they count for anything?!

Plz help I'm really worried!

RE visit

Jul 23, 2011 - 5 comments


well was surprised to get a call from RE's office saying he wants to c me! ya! he's back early apparently he cut off his vacay cuz he got bored with his family lol — fine by me!

well we discussed many things since its been a while, first was my weight which he wasn't pleased about!! he thought I needed 2.5 kgs more for the ideal pregnancy weight at this point and that my total weight gain isn't enuf for the baby
then I took my reports out and showed him the results from my urine analysis, yep..exactly what I expected Cystitis that requires antibiotics. he prescribed Amoclan 2mgs a day and asked for a culture which I didn't do since I'm taking the antibiotics anyways.
I also told him about the "blue hands" phase n he said this is something called "Raunaud's Disease" apparently it comes from stress and cold. which makes sense since I was with SIL in the hospital caring for her all day. he also referred me to what I recall was a "Vascular" not very sure of the title really but I think its that lol.
after that he told me that I need to gain more weight for this baby and then told m to visit him in a couple of days for feedback on the culture. not sure how thats gonna go since I already started the antibiotics he's prescribed  when I wasn't supposed to until I give the sample lol too bad I remembered that AFTER taking the pill!

ya so thats the summary of the visit..isn't he the best! he is a PRO can't believe I even THOUGHT of going to that neglectful OB!
another advantage is that baby will b born in the same hospital Daddy was born in! on the same month! imagine how Ironic and amazing this wud be! :D
