This morning I had my monthly prenatal appointment. Blood pressure is good, their scale said I gained 2lbs, but when I weighed myself at home maybe 15 mins earlier mine still said I was the same weight as last month. Who knows, but I'm still down a few lbs from when I first got pregnant.
Then we got into my u/s results from last week. Remember when I had my early u/s because I was having those pains that we've determined to be round ligament pains? Well that u/s said I was 9 weeks, 1 day along, and not the 10 weeks I was based on LMP. She told me that last weeks u/s has me at my EDD being September 21st... which matches my LMP exactly. Doesn't seem so weird, does it? Well here's where it gets weird. She gave me a copy of the u/s report and it says Exam - Earliest 16.8 weeks, EDD Sept. 28th (this matches up with me ovulating a week late... anyone remember me saying that hubby and I both suspect it, and even the clear blue digital conception test I took said the same thing... 2-3 weeks pregnant which put me right at that week later than I should have ovulated). Then under that it has Current: 17.9 weeks, EDD the 21st, and under that my LMP which states the same thing as Current.
At the very bottom it shows a little chart as to all the u/s's I've had and the results, it says this:
Gestational Age Analysis based on GA by first study = 16.8 weeks (that would have been last week).
Study - Date
1. 02/24/11 - EST. GA (weeks) 9weeks 1 day
2. 04/19/11 - EST GA (weeks) 16 weeks, 8 days.
Now, I asked what the earliest part above meant and she said that's just what the earliest showed, however the Dr will go by the 18 week u/s results which shows that my due date is the 21st. Does anyone else think there's been some sort of mix up in the report? Oh, and we were loking at the estimated fetal weight and it shows 0lbs 7ozs, which according to a chart I found online, matches up exactly to my 18 weeks that my ticker says I am (based on the early u/s I had). It's all showing that my due date is the 28th however they have me as matching up to my LMP, which both hubby and I agreed seems way wrong. I can scan and bloop out personal details on the report if anyone would like to look at it, but I seriously think that it should say the 28th, not the 21st.
OH and I also found the report a bit offensive. It has a section called report comments and it says that it "was a technically difficult exam due to maternal obesity" :eek: WTF!? Yes, I'm overweight, yes, I admit it, but omg, what a horrible thing to put, especially since the stupid woman said that baby was co-operating and she was just flying through getting the measurements etc. She had a bit of troubles getting some measurement/pic because she said I was a bit too full and had to pee a bit, but holy crap, that's offensive and totally not right!
Anyways, the rest of my appt was alright. She measured my belly and if you go by the later due date, I'm measuring 3 weeks big, or 2 based on the 21st due date. She found the baby pretty quickly and the HB was 158 then the little bugger moved and the next time she found it she said it was 147/148 not sure if that's very accurate cause she had to keep moving the wand, but the 158 was nice and strong and loud, where the other was kinda muffled kwim.
So, what do you ladies think of the u/s report? Hubby said we should definately go with the 28th because then when the 21st arrived and if there's still no baby at least we're not saying holy crap I'm now past due etc. Seems better to me to go that way but the Nurse Practitioner is always gonna talk to me as if I'm that week ahead and do things possibly a week sooner "RH Shot etc". She's the one in charge but ugh, I'm almost wishing that I never had the early u/s or took that clear blue test at least I couldn't say "WELLLL all these things say 28th" kwim.
Why do things have to be more complicated than they should be? :shrug:
