What a sucky appointment today. First I have to say despite everything, baby and I are both healthy and for that I am thankful.
To start off, they rescheduled my appt for 5:30 yesterday so a perk of that was that I met DH at work and he took the kids so I could be there in peace. Which was good because I ended up not even seeing the midwife until almost an hour after my appt time. :/ BUT I got to see MY midwife, not the other one.
For starters, after having my iron tested again last time, it was still low. My m/w always recommends specific vitamins and I had just bought some cheaper iron I found on Amazon and was taking one a day. Well, she said I should be taking 4(!!) a day of HER recommendation. So $15 later, I have a whole 30 capsules of raw iron which will last me about a week if I take 4 a day!! (I decided I would take half of the ones I have and half of hers - so 2 of each kind - a day instead to stretch it out.)
Next, my strep B test came up positive. :( I've never tested positive and I'm wondering about that. My doula friend asked me if I had DTD the night before because that can throw it off and it was entirely possible so I dunno. But anyway, I have to buy this hibiclens stuff and douche every day for awhile and I asked to be retested in two weeks so here's hoping it's negative.
Then the worst part, which I can't really go into detail about but due to unforeseen policies and circumstances, I will have to have my baby at home at this point. This could change and hopefully it does but if I went into labor right now, my m/w would have to come here. This is a bigger deal for hubby than for me; I can live with it, but when I told him last night, he got mad at me for not telling me that it was a possibly sooner (I had known it might be and I *did* tell him but he forgot.) and he really hasn't talked to me since.
Otherwise, bp was fine, baby measuring fine, in good position, head is low and down, etc.
