I'm heeeree... we made it!
Travel was awesome, very smooth, I was comfortable and all was good. EXCEPT on the final approach to my city, we had very bad turbulence and I got sick. Throwing up like a dog, sweating it was bad. But after we landed I was good to go.
So yesterday was my first doctor appointment here. I saw the Nurse Practioner, who i love, she was awesome! I will see the doctor on my next visit which will be on the 27th. Superbaby's heartbeat was great, 150's and physical exam for me turned out good too. When she measured my tummy, top of uterus down it was measuring at exactly 33 weeks. No ultrasound this time. I had to laugh and tell her how spoiled I was in Cairo, every visit if I wanted, which I did, I got an ultrasound, she laughed! So they did some labs, urine and a vag culture, so hopefully those will all come back ok. Its an automated system that will call me and let me know in a few days I'd guess.
I also mentioned to her how so many people have told me to have a scheduled c-section.... she said oh no. If I am able to deliver vaginally and all is ok that is what they prefer to do. I asked her about incision before vaginally delivery, she said they believe that a natural tear heals better and faster, huh? I thought it was the opposite! She said no and they haven't done Episiotomy's for awhile, is this right? So she needs to see some records from a surgery I had back in 2000, they took a firbroid from my uterus. She needs to see where teh incision was and scar tissue, this could MAYBE impact my delivering vaginally, but she said she would have to see the report first. I will bring that with me next appountment.
Started iron again last night, no problems. The supplement I got in Cairo made me nausious as I wrote before. So this one seems to be ok. I took it with orange juice, the NP's advice and seemed fine. I also added a calcium and Omega 3 supplement with DHA and other good stuff too.
Touring the birthing center tomorrow, and going to meet a potential Pediatrician for Superbaby. Its all becoming so much more real now and getting so close.
Anyway just wanted to say hey and let you know all is good so far. Miss you guys and will be updating regularly.
