16 week OB Appointment

No ultrasound was done today so no fear of me posting photos.

24 hour urine test was done to establish a baseline due to my blood pressure problem.  Test came back within normal limits.

Thyroid test was normal so the 75 mcg I'm on will continue to stay the same dose.  Next thyroid test is in two weeks when I see the OB again.

OB looked over my chart before seeing me.  He noticed that the ovarian cyst is to be watched but wasn't too concerned today.  No ultrasound was warranted.

I'm 16 weeks 2 day today according to the last period on 20 Oct.   New estimated due date the doctor put on the chart was 27 July.  Why the change from 30 July?

My fundal height is measuring 18 cm.   Maybe that is why there is a change in EDD?

Heart beat was 150

Blood pressure was 140/70

I have finally gained 0.6 pounds!  Doctor is pleased with my diet and told me to continue to eat a high protein diet.  He agreed with the 11-15 weight gain only.

Next OB appointment is scheduled for 2 weeks out.  Why so soon?  Well I am moving hopefully soon and the fact that I'm a complicated obstetrical patient.  They want to make sure the rise in bp from last time isn't indicative of placental issues since I am measuring ahead in fundal height.

Just feels weird to have my uterus at the naval already.  I now have no choice while sitting at the computer but to unbutton the top button on my jeans.  I guess I'll have to cut the tags off the maternity clothes this week, hem the dress pants and wash all the clothing.  I was hoping to put it off until 20 weeks but BH (baby hiccup) has other plans.


  1. I'm so glad that everything looks good!!! :)

  2. Congrats on gaining a bit! Glad everything went well.

  3. That all sounds really encouraging. I hope they keep an eye on your cyst! Yes! For gosh sake break out the maternity clothes. You will feel SO much better.

  4. Awesome that everything looks great :) I'm so glad! Weird they'd want to move your EDD- my OB tried to do that to me until I was like, "look, we did IUI we know our dates, there is no question about them" and she finally moved it back. I think they sometimes get confused with fertility treatments because they really only know how to work with LMPs in most cases, sometimes even the really educated ones.

  5. I'm so glad everything looks good. :)
