Yesterday Candy, Matt and I went to my 29th week appointment. Since I’d been corresponding with Dr. G online through the health email system (a system that was down quite a bit this week and somehow worked for me better as a phone app then a website), we’d discussed a few things in advance.
I knew I would need a RhoGAM shot as my blood type is negative and Matt’s is positive. I did not know I was due for a dTap shot as I’d had one less than a year ago, something Candy had brought up. Still, as that shor wouldn’t offer my baby the same immunity unless I took it while pregnant, Dr. G really wanted me to take it. So I got both shots, one in each arm.
I was also given my hospital preadmissions packet to fill out and my prescription for my breast pump. Dr. G wrote it for an electric Medulla, the same brand our pediatrician recommended showing again how much they think alike.
My blood pressure was measured at 133/78. In this picture, I’m explaining how I get much lower readings at home or when I’ve had it checked at church by the nurse who does monthly checks. While this is probably due to having White Coat Syndrome at his office, he joked it was that I felt more protected there. I told him sincerely that God was watching over me through my appointments with him.
We also talked briefly about how my Glucose fasting numbers had been high one day and after making an adjustment per my dietcians instructions was still on the high side of normal. As he has the Dietician who works with an Endochronologist guide that decision, I wrote to her about that and when to take the medicine as I was finding myself tired and napping between 9 p.m. and 10:00 p.m.
She need me the following response in part:
Though my ankles seemed a little swollen to him, he said otherwise I am doing well and I will go back in a few weeks.
