OB Appt

Met my OB today Smile

First impressions were good. I forgot how fun it is to go to an OB office and see tons of pregnant ladies with bellies waiting around Smile

BP was good, and I've really hardly gained any weight, which is odd for me. My weight today was 132 lbs and I know when I saw the doctor back in the 2nd week of November I was 130. So that's nice Smile

The OB seemed nice and told me that maybe I should just take over for him since this is my 4th and I know exactly what I'm doing Wink I'll see him every 4 weeks now. We listened to baby's HB (171 bpm) and got the paperwork ready for my ultrasound next month Biggrin I can call and schedule it anytime around January 11th. So I'll schedule that today!

Overall, it was a good appt, even if DS2 was a bit of a bugger in the waiting room. LOL

Yay for a great appointment! My U/S should be the 11th, it's exciting that we're getting so close to our big ultrasounds!

Woohoo, glad your OB seems to be a good fit for you! Sorry your DS was being a booger...I totally understand that one. HB of 171? Sounds like a girl Wink JK

I wonder if that means its a girl...did you gain a lot of weight with Ella? You just make big boys so I'd be surprised if it was another boy!

Yeah, I am feeling very small compared to my boys. The HR has been up in the 170's each time I have heard it....I'm really hoping PINK but I don't want to get my hopes up! I actually did gain a ton of weight with my DD Ella, but mostly towards the end - also I think because it was my first. With my boys, they weighed more but I gained less.

Anyways, I am sure thinking pink for our January U/S! I can't believe it's NEXT month!

Glad to hear it went well! Smile

At my 10 wk u/s baby's h/r was 173 so my mom insists it's a girl. Pink dust for both of us. Wink

K's HB was higher than this one...but that doesn't mean this is a boy...it could just be a slower girl. Blum 3

SOunds like a great appointment. I know you were a bit nervous about having a new OB, so it probably feels great to have the first meeting go well.
