Oh my! That must have been terrible! I heard quite a few places lost power around here. How we escaped losing power is beyond me.

has anyone's doctor ever checked their Fundal Height? As I have read in the book my hospital gave us in the beginning and it says at normal monthly visits they check fundal height. I see these people every 2-3 weeks and have never been checked or had a physical exam just ultra sounds and then the OB talks to me for 5 minutes

My doctor feels my stomach currently, sometime soon she starts using an actual measuring tape, I remember it being sometime around now with my first two. They can check by feeling the stomach or by measuring. But it seems very strange to me that you haven't even haf a physical exam yet. I just had a pap in december and I still had a physical exam which includef a pelvic exam at 10 weeks. Doc also checks my ankles and feet for swelling each time as well.

yesm my ob since about week 12 gets out the tape measure and measures me. I think it's one cm for each week you are pregnant. I will have to ask her next time what it is because she always just says, right on track, so I never asked her. Just tell your dr. next time you go in you want to be measured.

My doctor started measuring with the tape measure at my 20 week appointment. Before that she just felt for it. I also had a PAP done at my first appt (10 weeks). It never hurts to ask if you have questions about anything!

thanks ladies. Fetal Cardiogram was fine Zaya's heart loks normal. The OB said that I will start having an ultra sound every two weeks when I see the OB starting at 24 weeks. Then, at 30 weeks I either have to go for 2 u/s per week or wear a monitor belt and go 1x per week for u/s. She said they are growth scans. She actually felt my tummy I didn't even ask. So like I said all doctors are different as there are 8 high risk doctors at my hospital and I have seen 4 now and a 5th one at my 24 week appointment. I lost another lb. and they are okay with it as long as I am eating, not vomiting and Zaya is growing.

Liz- I will have my next u/s just before coming to Fargo so it will be exciting to share with you

hello ladies!!! We have not talked in ever!! How are you all doing? Good here. I feel pretty good except I was bending at the waist picking weeds from my garden when I all of a sudden got a muscle spaz in my back! ouch! I sure did treat myself to a massage though and it is getting better. My belly is growing and baby Leila is kicking and flipping around like a little gymnast. I got the nursery all done and I booked maternity pics today for week 34. Can't wait. I can't believe I only have less then 11 weeks to go! Can't wait.
