I saw the OB this morning; the ultrasound will be in the afternoon. (Fortunately, I work very close to my hospital.) The results: blood pressure 114 over 62; urine fine; fundal height measuring at 30 weeks; weight up 1 or 1.5 lbs; heartbeat 140ish.
My OB has decided no longer to care about my weight gain - whereas she used to be very by-the-book and harp on me if I hadn't gained precisely 2 lbs. since the last appointment, she now thinks that because I am consistent in my weight gain and because I am exercising and not on a donut-only diet (though that sounds appealing), everything is all right. I think I'll be up 30 lbs. by the end, which sounds just right to me. She is not concerned that my fundal height is two weeks behind my dates since it also has grown consistently.
I left with a prescription for Pep.cid because I've had a few episodes of waking up to find that (TMI alert) my most recent meal has traveled back up my esophagus and into my throat and nasal passage. It's Reflux Deluxe! I had tried to avoid this by changing my eating patterns such that I have my biggest and most complex meal at lunchtime - e.g., yesterday I had an XL salmon nicoise salad at lunch, then just had cereal and a banana for dinner at the judiciously early hour of 6:30pm, but I still got to meet that light meal again at about 11pm. I am forced to pull out a word from my youth (approximately middle-school-era) to describe this experience: GRODY.
Finally, I got a list of pediatrician recommendations from her. Most of them are men. My instinct had been that I'd want a woman pediatrician, maybe someone who'd had kids and breast-fed, etc. What are your thoughts on this? I've always strongly preferred having a woman OB/GYN, although it didn't bother me at all that several of my REs were men.
