Had a great OB appt today

So today I had my OB appt. My reg OB was on holidays so I had her partner. I am measuring 24 weeks and babies heartbeat was in low 160's. I lost a couple pounds but they are not to concerned. She said in the third trimester is when the weight will start to come on. She said since me and baby are being so closely monitored it is not a big deal. Everything looks great and she is happy - good news! It is weird on my last PG I was on bedrest at 22 weeks...hospitalized at 24 weeks and delivered at 26. I can't even imagine that being my life right now...and no one sees that coming right now either - which is an awesome feeling!!! I did mention that I am thankful but overwhelmed with all that I have to do and the appts. She agreed it is alot and wants me to mention it to each doc to see how we can make this work better. She feels the Internal Medicine Specialist can look after my GD so I would not have to go to the diabetes clinic...which would be a great help!! Also, she does believe there are times that the Internal Medicine Specialist and Perinatologist work same days so she said to talk to my doc and see if we can schedule appts together...that would be awesome. So hopefully in the next couple weeks we can combine some of this so that it will be easier to deal with. She is very proud of my BP chart, food chart and my blood check chart. I left there feeling pretty good today...and my little girl wiggled the entire time...I think she is happy too!

i'm glad the OB's partner suggested combining some of these appointments. that baby girl is growing and doing well so i think you should be allowed to cut back or combine some of these appointments. it's so nice to have a normal appt, isn't it??

Oh Melanie it is about time you left the doctor's office feeling good and appreciated! You are doing a tremendous job keeping all the diaries, I can't imagine doing all that.
I hope that they will combine your appointments somewhat to make it easier on you.
So happy to hear that you had a happy appointment! Glad your baby girl is all wiggly and happy inside!
