Today was the follow up appointment from the ER visit. J and I are recovered for the most part from the Noro virus.
The only difficulty today was in getting to be seen at the OB by the proper folks. I had an appt. time set for 1115 hrs with the COB doctors. The receptionist insisted I didn't have an appt. and sent me through triage. I was then seen by a medical student that went into great detail on my exam and questioning. He then wanted to know, because he saw in the computer that I had an appt. for that day with COB, why I was being seen in triage.
Face to palm and big UGH!
At 1300 hrs the doctor I was supposed to see at 1115 hrs arrives in my room and asks me why I was being seen in triage and not in the other corridor where her office is. I explained again like I did to med student and to the receptionist and I blamed the receptionist who dared to argue with me.
As if I really like spending two hours of my day in an exam room having to lower, raise, lower and raise my drawers for nurse, med student, and doctor.
All is well with the baby.
fetal heart rate: 147
My weight: down 2.2 pounds since last week Friday at the last OB appt.
Blood pressure: 136/62
On Monday at the ER baby was measuring two days ahead. Today it took three tries by two different nurses to get the fetal heart rate.
Try # 1 battery died
Try # 2 baby refused to hold still
Try # 3 with different nurse almost instantaneously the heart beat was heard.
They are considering me already in my 19 week of pregnancy. Oh goody, now just when am I going to gain a baby bump to match all the rest of those in the OB waiting room that are the same week?
Still wearing my size 16 jeans since I seem to have plenty of room in them. I want to put on the maternity clothing but I don't want to embarrass myself in public by having them fall off me. Hopefully by the baby shower, two weeks away, I'll be fitting into them without having to think about accessorizing with a belt or suspenders.
