So I rescheduled my appt for last week to today. Gained 5lbs since my last visit, so up 16 total. Measuring a smidge big, but then I have big babies so I always measure big right around now and will likely continue to do so. BP was fine. Zoë's heartbeat was in the mid 150 range.
Doc told me to maybe get some electrolytes to help me with my foot/leg cramps -- they've been SO bad this past week, waking me every night. Also, of course bananas but I cannot keep those in the house. So.
Bad news is that my doc is leaving this practice. So, I'm following her. I like her a lot, and she's still going to be able to deliver at our hospital (it's literally 10 minutes away in traffic -- 5 if hubby drives). It's going to be an insurance nightmare because we just started our plan year over this month, but we'll get through it. Her new office is about 15 more minutes away, but that's not too big of a deal. She'll have an ultrasound machine there and lab services for her first 3 months, so I'll be covered at least. :)
And, she did say that she won't let me go past 39w, so Zoë will be arriving by July 29 (30th if she is contrary like Libby -- induced her at 8d past her due date, had her 23 hours later). She's concerned about both my age and the fact that my term babies are almost 9lbs. I do love my doc. :)
3 weeks I get to do the glucose thing. Not looking forward to it, but have my drink so I won't have to sit and wait around. Very happy about that.
Good appt overall. I hope I like her new office. The best thing about where we are is that they're always on time. I never have to wait for my appt. That's never happened to me before. I've had some really bad offices in the past, waiting 30min to an hour for an appt. I truly hope this won't be like that. But, with less than 14 weeks to go, I think we'll be ok. 6 or 7 more visits, right, give or take? :)
