What's Up

We had another OB appointment yesterday. Mr. R was there acting like the paparazzi with his camera. He took a pic of me on the scale. I have gained 7 pounds in the last month. At first, I was like "Oh now hold on there nursey nurse... I've got Uggs on... those HAVE to count for at least 3 pounds." She wrote down what the scale said anyway.

We got to meet the new doctor. I loved her from the moment she walked in. See, I had that little colposcopy thing scheduled with the other doctor for last Friday... 2nd time it was schedule and 2nd time it got cancelled... well, I thought the new doctor would mention it. And she did. BUT... she totally agreed with me that there was no way this needed to be done right now. That my test didn't show anything close to it being cancer and that I shouldn't even worry about it and they'll just do a repeat pap after the baby's born. I love her, I tell you. We also talked about my iron levels and she was all... "I wouldn't do anything unless it was under 10." And, because it's at 11.4... good bye iron pills that make doing some things very hard to do. (If you've never taken iron pills, you have no idea what that means, if you have... you get it and you're high fiving me that I can throw those pills away.)

Then I mentioned that "OH MY GOSH I'VE GAINED 7 POUNDS!!" and she was all like "Girl, you've got Uggs AND jeans on. You've probably only gained about 4 or 5 pounds!" Then she looked at the chart and said "Ummm, you've only gained 9 pounds total and you're 21 weeks - this is nothing to worry about!" And then Mr. R had to gloat about how he's been making sure I do not eat much fast food. Do you think sneaking to McDonald's would be considered cheating if your fiance forbid it?

Anyway, I really like this doctor! And not just because her and Mr.R talked more about a past Guns N' Roses concert more than they talked about MY BABY, she seemed like she really knew what she was doing. We talked about whether I should have a c-sec or try another VBAC. She said she'd be happy to try a VBAC and that I should... but if I, or the baby even looked cross-eyed at her, she'd have us in the OR in a flash. I also found out that they will not take a baby early for a c-sec. You can schedule it, but not 2 weeks in advance anymore, only 1. So, this baby will be a June baby no matter what, unless HE decides differently.

After our appointment we went to Red Lobster for lunch, then more baby shopping. We got a stroller, bouncy seat and more clothes. The clothes thing is out of control!! When I get a chance, I'll get everything out and take a pic.
