Best GD Clinic EVER!
Scan went really well. Bean is still measuring big, but not scary big, just the usual "one of my babies" big. In fact when I saw the consultant she said to me that she would worry if my baby WASN'T big, and that while the growth charts are called "personalised" they do not in fact take into account a woman's previous babies. And this baby was bob on for one of mine.
Haven't I been saying this all along?
My BP is normal. My bloods are normal. No need to see the dietitian. No sign of that registrar coming to see me, and no mention AT ALL of metformin!
I mentioned about the fuss I have had with my prescription for the UTI I got, the one Asda Pharmacy "couldn't find" then "didn't have in stock" and then "couldn't full-fill because it's been discontinued" since I was expected to do another pee sample. The consultant was fuming! She said the pharmacist should not have sent me away with nothing, that they are obligated to give me something, and that what they should have done was call my GP (who issued the prescription) and discuss it with them in order to get a different brand they COULD supply. She then arranged for me to have a sample tested then and there and a new prescription for the hospital pharmacy to fill. Which they have.
But the best bit of the clinic? It was when she said these words to me: "We will definitely induce you at 38 weeks. Ish."
Ish..... definitely 38 weeks ISH? *roll eyes* Well, at least I can say to my mum now to keep the first full week in August open for child minding duty. Since both my previous inductions were booked in for Tuesdays we're wondering if maybe Tuesday 5th Aug might be THE DAY! I'm back at the clinic in 3 weeks, maybe THEN I will get an actual date!
