Monday Madness Appointments
Weekend just over and we started our week with busy appointments here and there. Got up so early for a 10:00 o clock appointments for my almost 37 weeks pregnancy. We supposed to only have one appointment for today but ended up having three (3). Of course the buckaroo was with us in every waiting time and had to bribe him with juice, cookie, or anything to munch on and toys so he would stop yelling, screaming and squirming because he got tired setting on his stroller while waiting to be called. We came to the doctor’s office with shoes on and came out with just socks minus the shoes.However, for the past appointments we had, everything was great, baby's measurement, size, health and everything. Well, today's checkups as usual they checked my weight which I gained 132 lbs, blood pressure; normal, urine was fine, fetal heartbeat- 140 which is normal, height and fetal size; was okay but still has big question mark, baby's position was good; head down, cervix; internal examination both rectal and vaginal which according to my doctor I am already a finger tip dilated and some concerning issue about my wheezing and cough. So, the check up went well, but the doctor had to order us for another ultrasound to see the baby's growth. She said, the baby was kind of small, so they sent us to the ultrasound and had to wait there for another 30 minutes. My husband was pouting already because its Jake's lunch time and nap time and he was getting restless. The ultrasound result came out pretty good, the baby weighs 6 lbs. 2 ounces which is very normal for my size plus I came from the Philippines, where most people are petite or have small genetics compared to Caucasian. I wasn't happy with the person who assists us during the ultrasound, she wasn't friendly at all and she didn't give us the pictures of our baby (from the ultrasound). We headed home and this time it was me pouting and hungry. After our lunch we had to leave again for my general practitioner appointment regarding this darn cough. He run some test to see if something wrong with my heartbeat, if I have asthma, allergy or something and found out nothing. The cause of wheezing and coughing was probably from my pregnancy. He prescribed me other medication and advised to keep using the inhaler or pump. If things not getting well after a week an x-ray exam will be conducted to check my chest. Monday wasn't over yet but I am freakin tired already. Hope you guys had a relaxing monday.
