27/28 week appointment

Pretty good appointment today. I felt babe flip last night and they confirmed he was head down this morning. They are still happy with my sugars and are not adjusting my insulin. I lost 3lbs over the past 2 weeks. My bp was 98/64, so they were thrilled. We talked about my carpal tunnel in both hands now and they assured me it would go away after he is born. I discussed my concerns with them being such a large practice that I felt lost. Since I really don't care who delivers my baby I decided to choose 2 docs within the practice to keep my appts with so they get to know me and when I have concerns I can call and reference a doc who knows me. I trust any and all of the docs in the practice o deliver a healthy boy, but I felt I needed only 1 or 2 docs to know me well to manage my pregnancy. My fundus is measuring 2cm ahead (I'll have to figure that out in weeks). I go back in 2 weeks for a growth u/s and another appointment.

What a great idea to tell them you only want to deal with a couple of them...I deal with the same thing and it's so frustrating. I hate that there are so many in the practice and nobody knows me or how I feel

I'm glad the dr office is working with you.its a great idea to have two doctors who know you really well. Congrats on a great appointment.

Congrats on the great appt. and that baby changed positions. I was wondering when they typically do that. Will is still breech.
