Is it the week of May 24th already? How'd that happen? I'm about 17 weeks. Still feeling pretty yuck. I was hoping the headaches and vomit inducing migraines would go away at 12 weeks. Some people said maybe 16. Still here. This is my 3rd pregnancy and definitly my toughest.
dan_in_taipei, I'm also carrying really big, but I have with all 3. Everyone is different. My best advice again peterpan collars and knickers would be to do some internet shopping and pay for the shipping
Question of the Week:
I'm seeing a family practitioner (DO). This is the first time I've had a dr. My first two were a birth center with midwife and a homebirth with midwife. We've moved and there aren't any mw for about 100 miles.
My appts are pretty standard. First was loooong - medical history, birth history, etc. Second was a physical; I didn't mind. I hadn't had a pap in about 3 years
: Next appt was about 5 minutes. Pee in a cup, blood pressure, weight, how do you feel all done by an assistant. Dr measure my tum, talked about upcoming tests so I could decide, I did let him do a quick doppler (first and last time), and talk about my migraines. My appt schedule is standard as well. Every month until - I think - 7th, then every 2 week, then every week for the last month.
I like this dr. He's cool about me turning down tests. He doesn't even do a glucose for diabetes - he tests you after eating breakfast. He has 6 kids born, as he said, in a birth center tub, in the hospital and in the backseat of their car. So he's pretty open minded. What I am not OK with is my first hospital birth. I'm really hoping we move closer to mw's before I'm due. I can't imagine the hospital thing at all.
