multi topic post..sig help, doctors appt.

Ok ladies I haven't posted often but I need to get into the swing of things..I was pretty active on my Augst 2009 board....Ok as I stated in the title I have a few things to talk about LOL so here it goes

1) Can somebody help me change my sig I forgot how and my daughter is almost 3 yrs old not 1 Smile

2) So yesterday I went to my final appt with my GYN and she released me to an OB that she's comfortable with (I'm kinda unsure because its a practice and I prefer to have the same doc I see all pregnancy deliver me too) so that appt is Aug 13 and the hospital they are with is supposedly the best place to deliver in Maryland. I have gained 6 lbs already :eek: which is surprising because I am naturally small and only gained 18 lbs with my daughter. My doctor and eerybody else thinks its a boy (I sure hope they are right) I get a sonogram Aug 2nd so hopefully they can tell then. Now heres where I'm confused...my date has been changed 3 times. If I go by my period I should be due Jan 31, when I got my last sono my doc said I was due feb 2 which would make me 11 weeks 5 days but yesterday she told me I was 12 weeks and 6 days...so I basically have NO clue how far along I am.

Ok I think that's all...hope you all are doing wonderful

Hi Tia,

To edit signature, go to SETTINGS (on top) then click on edit signature (on the left)... that's it!!

with my first pregnancy the docs changed my EDD lots of time but I ended up sticking with my LMP and I had my son 9 days early.
If I would have followed the docs EDD, I would have been 18 days early so I don't think they were right. Plus he was 8pounds 3 ounces.

Yeah my due date is off from when i had my last period by almost a week. They say I much have ovulated a week later then I should have. I thought my due date was going to be January 6th but the doc said it was January 13th so we will see what happens.

My dates don't add up either, but my doctor said that in his practice they generally go by LMP unless the ultrasound shows your off by more than 7 days in one direction or another. I would guess that your u/s showed your baby measuring bigger. Are you going by the u/s date then? If so, that makes you one day shy of the second tri!! Woot! Woot!!

Speaking as a physician, being a solo practitioner precludes any chance of having a family life. I would hate to be on call every night. I know some old docs who did that but they also took a one month long vacation every year- so if you delivered at that time you were out of luck. I hope you like your new doc. I also have to find a new doc and i have many concerns. We all have our perfect birth experience in mind...

Hope you will post more so we can get to know you.
