Today was our appointment with the obstetrician at the public hospital we're going to (am I allowed to name them?) via the Dr's clinic. The Midwife was required to refer me during my booking appointment due to my BMI being high, so off we went.
Although my blood pressure has always hovered between 110-115/70 or 80 it's currently around 100-110/60 which for me was a bit of a shock!
Despite that reading the Dr wasn't concerned about it at all, we got to hear the heartbeat for a few seconds and he said everything was great....
except for my weight. He's recommended seeing a Dietician and has written a referral, I'm a bit down about that, but not too much, just hits home that I need to get serious once bubs is born about my health, so for the 2nd pregnancy I'm not in the same situation.
I'd been meaning to register for an aqua natal class nearby home but kept forgetting, finally rang them today and the current evening session is booked out, next one starts in may and finishes a week before I'm due. Not sure if that is still ok or not? Will have to check with the Dr and see if there's something low stress somewhere else nearby that starts sooner.
the Ob said he doesn't anticipate any issues, though I felt he was trying to say that I ate lots of sweet stuff, and I should treat myself less regularly. I didn't really pick up on this as he said it quite sensitively. Reality is I'm no longer a sweet eater, I have the occasional sweet treat, but mostly it's cheese and crackers, or nuts or fruit for snacks, and we eat salad like it's going out of fashion!
