I've been diagnosed with prenatal depression at my last appointment. But I love my OB, she wants me to take 30-45 minutes a day to myself, no baby, no SO. She told my SO to help out around the house (he does but awesome the doctor told him too) so I'm not over whelmed, and wants to try natural remedies before antidepressants.
We also discussed our plan if little man doesn't flip head down, we'll u/s at 35 weeks, and go from there. At 37 weeks, I can try to ahve an external version or I can just go ahead and have a c-section. My DS's delivery was very hard, 3 hours pushing and 3rd almost 4th degree tears/cut/vacuum assist, I couldn't walk/sit for months, so I'd almost welcome a c-section anyways.
Other than that, my urine culture showed the anitbiotics are finally working! But she wants me to stay on a low-dose until 36 weeks because I'm having a lot of BH and there still is a sligthly evalvated bacteria in my urine. And I've now gained 17lbs total. Which I can thank over eating for lol!
