Marie & baby health update

So I honestly hadn't meant to cause any concern or leave people in the dark. Here is the rundown of what has been going on...

Tuesday: As I was in there getting the IV, we had a nice long talk about my previous pregnancies and deliveries. My doctor ( who also is our family practice) said that she wanted to see if maybe I should be seen at the hospital instead. The way it is done here, is that I go to my regular doctor until 24 weeks and than you start going out to the hospital. So she put in a consult with OB up at the Naval Hospital.

Wednesday: I was dropping Ivan off at school, when I got a phone call from the hospital. They wanted me to get my OB chart from the clinic and than bring it up to the hospital. I also had to do a 24 hour urine collection ( oh the joys). So I went and did both of those.

Thursday: A nice long talk and the filling out of a lot of forms up at the hospital. Because of going into pre-term labor with Ethan, and my pre-term labors & deliveries with Connor&Ivan, they decided I should just stay at the hospital, instead of going back to the clinic.

Friday: Dropped off my nice big jug of urine and than made the appt to get my one hour glucose test. Which is standard. However I usually have to do the 3 hour one also.

So there you have it. Tomorrow ( my Monday) I go in to do my glucose and than on Thursday I have my 16 week appt.

We are fine. I just have a really cautious doctor. She is the one that caught Ivan's delays, so I appreciate her cautiousness. Is that a word? Anyway that is what has been going on. No need to worry!

Kids. They start you worrying from day one - don't they? I'm glad to see your being well taken care of :)

Why do these little babies have to give us so much grief? I hope things are going well and good luck on your glucose test. I hate that test. I am always a point or two away from having to do the 3 hour test and still it makes me feel aweful. I hope it goes well.

TAKE IT EAST MARIE! Who is your doctor? I was at the OB and had almost all the doctors there.

Tiffany, I had Dr. Falleroni down at the clinic. Now I am seeing LCDR Borja. I haven't met her yet. My first appt. is this Thursday. One of the new members of our branch, who is an ER doc, said that she was good. Did you have her?
