This poor board is like a ghost town now.
I posted about this on FB, but figured I would here as well. I had my 28 week appointment with the NP today, since my OB is out of town. She was awesome. I passed the GTT, but my hemoglobin levels were on the low side. We talked about the pelvic pain and what I could do. (Not many options while pregnant, unfortunately.) She said that I'll likely have 1-2 ultrasounds this trimester since my old OB was concerned about my fluid levels last time. (I had a scan for size at an outside radiology office at 38.5 weeks, and they sent me straight to the hospital. Another scan was done at the hospital which showed higher levels, but they were still iffy about it. I have no doubt it was from the 115* temps outside that summer.) They're watching the baby's size since DD was 9.9 lbs, but there has been absolutely no negativity or mention of an RCS at all. She said that they just want to make sure that baby is consistent growth-wise.
I told her about neurology sending a referral for a port, and she was supportive about it. She apologized that I have to go through this, get beat up with needle sticks, etc. She while it stinks to have to get a port while I'm pregnant, it will be a good thing. Apparently she was an L&D nurse before doing OB/GYN, and she joked that the L&D nurses will be fighting for me as a patient since venous access will be so easy.
Before we left, she gave us a quick peek at our little guy on the ultrasound machine. It wasn't the best view since they had the machine calibrated for early pregnancy, but it was nice to see him. The little guy was back into a head-down position (ROA) after being transverse for a couple of weeks. Yay! He had his legs stretched all the way across the top of my uterus, and he was sucking on his fingers.
I get the port put in on the 4th of January. Wish me luck.
