Yet another doctor's appointment

Wait time to see doctor: 1 hour and 10 minutes
Length of time with doctor: approximately 3 minutes, plus a 30 second call back
Blood pressure: 138/74
Weight gained in 1 week: 9lbs (lol! a massive screw up on part of the NA, she wrote in my file that I lost 5 lbs at the last appointment, so really this was a 4 lb weight gain, which is terrible for one week, but she wrote down that I had no weight gain at all, so I have no idea what is going on!)
Number of weeks pregnant:27 and 1 day
Uterus measuring: 32 weeks (make up your mind baby, or stop sticking your bum in the air)
Protein in urine: minimal
Blood sugar:5.3
Other blood test news: Iron is too low, hinted that I must take my Materna
Next appointment: May 30 (the day I see INXS)

This appointment was a total waste of time. She was too rushed, and other than hearing the heartbeat, which I can do at home, there was no point to it. She is not concerned about my blood pressure, and only says to rest when I have headaches. I'm finding it very frustrating. She wanted to see me again in 2 weeks (I was hoping for a month) but is away on holidays so I will see her the 30th. Why? I am tired of waiting and having no concise answers. My doctor desperately needs a partner. She's way to busy for one person. I discovered that she triple books each appointment time. I suppose most of them do really.

In other news, baby is kicking up a storm, I am loving it.

I just found your site on babyblogorama - I'm due Aug. 23rd with my 3rd boy. I love your site; I was laughing so hard about your pee problem...probably because it hits so close to home! I can't sneeze without crossing my legs. Very embarrassing at the mall. Anyway, keep it up!

Hoping, All I can say is thank God I don't have to pay a penny towards my healthcare, I would be in serious trouble if I did.

Emmakirst, I love JD too, he's a hottie, I am not at all happy about the over $200 I spent on the tickets, why am I taking my kids???

Nicki, thanks for the comment...I will be checking out your site.
