My Latest Appointment

Oh my GOD! These babies are growing and growing and growing. I had my baby shower (I think I posted about that before…), and everyone was telling me that a baby’s growth will slow down around this time. Now, I felt that these babies had not slowed down, but I was thinking that maybe they were right. NOT!!! I was right. They grew over 2 lbs each since the last ultrasound! Last time Cameron was 3 lbs 3 oz, this time he’s 5 lbs 12 oz! HOLY CRAP! He’s getting so big! Kiefer was 3 lbs even last time, Now he’s 5 lbs 6 oz. HOLY CANNOLI! He’s a big fella!

I can’t believe they are not ready to come out at this point. Next week, I have another doctor’s appointment and an NST with an API. The NST is to listen in and make sure they are not stressing out and are doing ok. The API is a visualization to do a brief growth estimate to determine when they may have to come out. I’m seeing my doctor regardless since I had made that appointment before knowing about the NST/API requirements. I’m going to be doing the NSTs and APIs every week until I pop. I also have a follow-up ultrasound in three weeks. I’ll be really surprised if I last that long to me honest with you. Read more

My Dentist Appointment

Nothing really exciting going on. My teeth are doing really well. I was there briefly last week before I got sent home for a bad tummy ache, but the hygienist was able to check my gums. She thought I had a little pregnancy gingivitis going on and marked it down. I did make sure I focused on those areas before coming back this week for the hygienist to finish up. She couldn’t find a thing wrong with my teeth! YAY!!! So that’s doing well.

It was kind of funny though. I go there and a woman had just signed in for a dentist appointment and she had twin girls a couple of years ago. The receptionist there just told her I was having twin boys (they love to talk at that place). She went on about a twin mom’s group in the area that I could join that she was a part of. Unfortunately, it’s a little far for me and I don’t know how much longer I’ll be able to fit behind the wheel of my car anyhow. Read more

The End Is Near…

That’s right. the end of my externship is well within reach. In fact it’s this coming Monday! Well, of course that depends on the weather. It’s supposed to snow tomorrow and be icy throughout the weekend. If that’s the case, then I might not be able to make it to work on Monday and will have to go Tuesday. That’s ok. I enjoy it there.

One of the things that makes it enjoyable there is the compliments I get from the doctors, the patients, and even my colleagues. They are nice to me and they do give me advice that helps me do well in my job. Though they never asked me to join them for lunch 🙁 That’s ok, I do like to use that time to talk to Jason. It’s one of the things I look forward to during the day…talk to my husband about how my day is going. I just feel I’m in the right field. Read more

What has 4 arms, 4 legs, and dances the mambo?

Two 11 1/2 week old babies! It was awesome! Thursday, I went in to meat my OB doctor for the first time. Of course, I had to leave a urine sample as I will have to do every time I go there from now on, but I couldn’t. I actually had to do #2 and that wasn’t easy! Damn constipation!! Well, I managed to do everything after much …um …”personal insistence” on getting that job completed. Each time I had to use the bathroom, the doctor would come in and want to start the appointment. It was so irritating! She wanted to do the ultrasound almost immediately too which is what I wanted to see SO badly!

Well, finally I settled down and she asked me to lay down on the table and loosen my pants. I never had an external ultrasound before so this was a whole new experience for me. She asked me about my MS and how they found out. I decided to tell her from when I first started having my experiences from 2000 up to 2003. Read more
