Our kids are already taking after us...
Yesterday, we had another follow up appointment at the Nashville Maternal Fetal Medicine group. We knew it was our day for the lovely cultures (got to be sure we don't carry any STDs) and a quick check on my cervix. As usual, we arrived early in Nashville and decided to have a quick breakfast at Krispy Kreme. We ate 2 "Halloween" doughnuts and I had some milk...trying to balance the heartburn risk!
Around 8:45am, we walked into the clinic. There were several ladies there and a family with 2 little girls...still in blanket sleepers! The little girls proceeded to yell, scream, and pour juice/milk all over the seating in the office...while Mom and Dad played with their cell phones. Another lady who was clearly pregnant (more than me) didn't even know the name of her Ob-Gyn who sent her to the office, which was fascinating! And 2 other ladies came in nasty sweatpants, dirty shirts, and old bedroom shoes. Heck...in scrubs, I was the best dressed patient there! Guess our society is really sad these days!
We went back around 9:30am and were seen initially by the office manager. It was great, because she realized how far I had to travel and how running late was kind of an issue...so I'm thinking we'll get in and out a little quicker from here forward! I did a quick urinalysis, had blood drawn, and had my cultures with our doc. I then crossed the hall with a sheet around my waist (so NOT my style) for the ultrasound. My cervix is great (over 40mm in length and completely bent at 90 degrees) and the babies looked great as well. I think our Baby A/Boy must love doughnuts as much as us because he was VERY active! Our Baby B/Girl was fairly active, but we think she might have been in the midst of a sugar coma! We feel rather certain that these little ones LOVE doughnuts as much as we do! We left with everything looking great and a weight gain so far of 10 pounds (which included my very swollen ankles...so realistically around 8 pounds)!
Our next appointment is our "official" anatomy scan and will be done on October 26 at 8am. While we pretty much know everything looks good at this point, it'll be refreshing to know that everything is "officially" perfect!
