Re : MFM wants to do c/section at 36 weeks

<t>I am going to suggest Rebecca's OBs plan to him. This is sorta what we had planned last time, but sorta not (he had me scheduled at 36w5d but was leaving on vacation the next day). He said we'd do the amnio to check lung maturity. He now has 3 partners in his practice though so one of them could ...

MFM wants to do c/section at 36 weeks

<t>I have a classic c/section incision which puts me at higher risk for rupture if I go into labor at all, so he wants to do the c/section at 36 weeks. I'm so disappointed with this. My last son was also scheduled for 36 and change, and I ended up getting sick and we rescheduled for 37w5d. I was hop...

First OB appt

<t>I have had a few u/s but this was my first OB appt, sheesh it took 3 hours by the time we did the u/s, appt/exam and then lab work. Everything looked great. The subchorionic hematoma has completely resolved. Baby measured perfectly for dates (9w2d), HB was a strong 178. I don't go back again unti...

Re : 5k- would you?

<t>I have been training for a marathon coming up in 3 weeks, since last winter. I found out I was pregnant about 6-7 weeks before the marathon and my doc said he did not want me running it (or doing the 35+ miles of running I had been doing each week). I know as much as you don't want to disappoint ...

Re : 37 weeks, NICU time?

<t>My last son was 37w5d and was a csection. He had TTN (transient tachypnea of the newborn) and some sugar problems. He was kept in the NICU (the same one I work at) for an afternoon and overnight. I am pushing my doc to let me go until 38.5-39 weeks this time. We do however get newborns here (anyw...

Re : 4D US

<t>My doc just has to flip a switch on their regular u/s machine to put it into 3D/4D so any time I ask they will do it (during any u/s). They say that the 3D/4D are not very diagnostic, they need the 2D u/s for that interestingly enough. With my last pregnancy I had the 3D/4D even in the first tri,...

Subchorionic hematoma

<t>I started bleeding yesterday (not a lot, and mostly brownish/old blood) but enough to make me want to call my OB. Well my MFM hasn't seen me yet for this pregnancy so apparently they don't consider me an "established patient" so they told me I would have to go through my PCP or the ER to get chec...
