Appointment Disappointment 15 weeks
Tue, 05-24-2011 - 12:21pm

Maybe I am expecting too much, but i went to my 15 week appointment and The only thing that was done was that my weight and blood pressure were cheked,I gave a urine sample, I talked to the doctor about concerns and she listened to the heartbeat with the doppler device.Thats it.

I been waiting a whole month for my next checkup and it was almost completely uneventful except that my kids got to hear the heartbeat, and that was my way of letting my 8 year old son find out i was pregnant. My daughter (17) already knew.

He is excited to be a big brother. :smileyhappy:

I know what you mean, the appts at this stage are so anti-climatic.

I Katie said, these midway appts lack the excitement. Mine is Tuesday too and they'll probably do the same things they did for bang boom thank you mam ;) I also have an appt a week later for just lab work...BORING! I'm ready for my 20 week scan!! :D

Yeah the 16 week appointments are BORING! I scheduled a gender scan at an U/S "salon" the week after though, so that will be fun. I just couldn't wait for the anatomy scan at 20 weeks! My best friend just did her gender too at 15 weeks, so now I am REALLY chomping at the bit!

I just LIVE for those appointments. Counting down the days. So many times they just measure and move you on. You know, like why did I bother coming in???? UGHHHHH.

My 17 week about was all of 5 minutes. Totally disapoimting and pointless! I completely understand your frustration.
