||My mood while writing this blog:|
I had my 38 weeks appointment today. I was measuring small, 35 weeks. I measured small with my first too, but it surprises me that the nurse practicer does not mention anything about it. It is kind of annoying how she measures me and does not tell me how much, or how much the heartbeat is. I mean I know I will see it because it will be written down on the card before I leave, but still i believe she should say something. So I asked how much I measured and she said 35. I said "isn't that small, since I am 38 weeks"...she was like "oh no is fine"...and i said "is not bad that i am measuring 35?"....and she replies "oh no it could be because you dropped a bit"....i really am confused. With my first child I went to a doctor, and I feel like she treated me better and was more concerned about the baby or made sure the baby was ok. For example when by 38 weeks I measured small like 36 weeks, she ordered an ultrasound to see if there was enough fluid, and also to do non-stress test to make sure the baby was moving fine. This one does not even mention that! I wonder if it is because it is medicaid and they try to do the minimum or what not. It isn't like i want to go and do those non-stress test but still it kind of makes me worried that they don't care. I also asked what day will they make me an appointment at the hospital if I go up till 40 weeks. She said that they will at 41 weeks. I asked if I could go earlier than that and she told me I have the option but it depends on them if they will decide to admit me or not. Ahhh I so wish to go to natural labor, I am so afraid I will pass 40 weeks. Today the work that i have been waiting for more than two months to start told me that I might start next week. They didn't know I was pregnant so I had to let them know that I would prefer to start March 5th. However if I go till march 1st, that is not good, what if go later than that...i want to have at least a week with the baby before I start work. I am so confused and scared right now.

- Friday, 10 Feb I do feel for you ana its a hard enough time for us now without the added pressure of starting a new job too! Maybe your midwife isnt concerned because you measured small first time and everything turned out to be fine, also I have found you dont get the same attention with subsequent pregnancys at all ive not even seen my midwife in over a month and im supposed to be going weekly now
