This morning I got up with the boys. Soon after they left for the day I went to bring my car in for a simple oil change. My father gave me his car so I could leave and head to the OB’s office for my appointment with the NP at 9:45. As I was pulling into the parking lot of the doctor it was my father calling. The mechanic was there and it wasn’t good news. My cheap oil change quickly changed into a new set of front breaks. That’s two times in a row that my poor car has been in there for over $300 for simple things to be taken care of. *sigh* I guess I shouldn’t complain. These were the original breaks and the car is almost 4 years old.
Needless to say I was quite upset when I walked in for my OB appointment. I had tears rolling down my face (you have to love hormones). Thank goodness my BP was fine, weight up a little and nothing else exciting. Then I sat in a room waiting to see the NP. The office was crazy today and she was having an emergency visit with another patient. Not a problem. I just turned red from the heat in the room and was swelling. By the time she came in they were over an hour late. On an interesting note she said my swelling is minimal for where I am in my pregnancy, although a lot for me.
I told her about my aches and pains and pressure low. She told me it’s very common, especially in second or subsequent pregnancies. The little guy’s heartbeat was great. Then she measured me. Once again I measured big. I’m only 34 weeks today and measured 39. She wasn’t too alarmed, but wanted me seen next week by an OB to see how things go. She explained to me that since I was overweight to begin with and the way the little monkey is sticking out his butt could be factoring into everything. So next Thursday I am going back for the Strep B check and to have the OB I saw two weeks ago check me out. I opted for that day instead of the following Monday because if they pull me from work early it wouldn’t be with much time.
So that’s everything that’s going on now.
