Wow, FourGulls! How cool that doc felt your baby's head!!
They checked me for strep B at my first prenatal visit way back at the beginning. It came back Positive (first time I've ever had it and it's in my 5th pregnancy, go figure) So they treated me with antibiotics way back when. I see everyone else is getting tested now, makes me wonder is it odd that I was tested and treated so early?
We keep my appointments few and far between because I've had so many uncomplicated pregnancies and my doc is a fabulous laid back hippy. She says if I don't feel like coming in and I feel fine, then no worries. I trust my instincts and listen to my body so if something gets weird, I'll just high tail it into her office. We did keep an appointment yesterday because my husband wanted to ask about the difference between DVT and varicosities. Our update is: Fundus measured right on schedule, baby's heart rate was great, my bp was 110/60 it never seems to change, and I've gained 19 lbs. (Thank you chewy chocolate chip cookies!)
She doesn't check my cervix, come to think of it, she only ever checked in the beginning to be sure cervix was closed up tight and to swab for tests. Is that unusual?
