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

i wouldn't worry to much about weight gain as long as its rising steady! i didn't put much in at all with dd until the 3rd trimester and she was born at 38 weeks 7lb 3oz so she was perfectly healthy! i hope  the anti b's kick in soon for you i kept getting uti when i was pregnant with dd and its not nice!  
Drs do have a way of making us feel bad or silly, it dont get better when the babys born it gets worse trust me coz then every time you make a dr's vist your classed as a paranoid mother lol
take care :)

LOL who cares if I'm paranoid ! to us we're just loving mother aren't we? hehe

Thank u SO much for responding I was beginning to worry that I'd have a lil baby who isn't as healthy as I want him to be.
how much did u gain in ur 3rd tri with DD? I'v been gaining approximately 1KG more or less every month.

did u take any anti biotics during pregnancy for ur UTIs? I feel so guilty having to take them really but its my history that haunting me down n forcing me to take them lol

how about u? how's ur pregnancy going so far? any news?

yes i took anti biotics during pregnancy i kept getting uti's and then coz of the hormonal changes the anti b's would give me thrush so be warned!
i dont know exactly how much weight i put on each trimester when i fell pregnant with dd i was 9st by 20 weeks i was just over 10st and was told i had not gained enough weight i then was 12st when i was in labour so i put on alot in the last trimester, but dd was fine her scores minutes after she was born where all 9-10  and i was on anti b's most of the 2nd and 3rd trimester so dont worry to much! im sure little one is fine, and you really can tell how big baby will be from the bump or weight, after my waters broke i hardly looked pregnant at all and thought dd was going to be tiny about 5 lbs or so but no she was big and healthy :)
im fine, still on bed rest, so im a little bored but right now im cuddled up my my sleeping girl so thats nice i got the time to have all the cuddles lol dh is being great hes taken on all the housework and cooking and im pleased to say no bleeding for 2 days now!! i have a scan tomorrow so i hope the bleed has shrunk. i brought one of those sonoline b dopplers yesterday so i hope when it gets delivered ill be able to listen to babys hb so that will be very reassuring.

I agree don't worry about the weight gain it will pick up later when your ready. Don't force yourself to eat more. Also UTI's are normal when your pregnant. I never get them unless I'm pregnant and the antibiotics will clear it up in no time.
