3rd pregnancy and entering my 3rd trimester, here are some thoughts.
I started having acid reflux in my 20-somethingth weeks of pregnancy this time. It came on a lot quicker than my other two pregnancies, and even hit me throughout the day instead of just at night. Oof. So I’ve been sleeping with my head propped up with my back almost upright for nearly two weeks since it’s gotten worse. At least this is temporary.
I finally met my new Obgyn.
Backstory: I switched to a new Obgyn because my other one… to put it plainly, I felt like I was a total bother to her. A little drama on that end. At the time my car was out of commission so I could only visit the clinic when Scott was working from home two specific days a week. One half of those two days per week I work at my son’s school. So I’m working on only a day and a half per week being able to see that doc. Coinsidently is she doesn’t work on one of the two days I was free. Good grief.
I subtilty asked to switch providers. Provider was booked up with patients. Next appt I go to with the OBGyn she brings up the fact she saw I wanted to switch doctors. Awkward. I eventually said yes and she agreed with my scheduling. Good thing. Cause as soon as I met my new Obgyn last week, I felt immediately comfortable around her. Such better bedside manner, didn’t rush my appointment, and I felt as if she truly listened. I also asked if certain days I could bring my middle child in with me, if my appointment was scheduled for a day I couldn’t leave him with Scott. She was actually delighted at the thought to meet one of my kids. Whereas the other doctor basically told me she doesn’t usually allow it and she could make an exception if necessary. So basically no lol. Wtf. Fantastic mannerisms, I tell ya.
Anyway. Glad I switched cause if I irritated that doc just by my scheduling differences I definitely don’t want her in charge of bringing my new baby into this world. Jeewhiz!
So that’s the update for now. I feel like I need to stop eating suppers and just have more frequent meals earlier in the day because come supper time ….food isn’t appealing and I can already visualize the acid reflux in my throat. So nasty.
Sidenote, got a new bassinet in the mail over the weekend, and assembled it yesterday. Can’t wait to talk more about it in another post.
