Followup appointments

The affectionately named "honeymoon trimester". Your belly is getting bigger and you start to feel your first baby kicks. Are you having a boy or a girl?

Followup appointments

I posted this in my june dd club but thougt id ask you guys too.

I know most of us have follow ups every 4 wks. Based on my last visit i have no clue what to even ask or talk about. The visit usually consists of listening to the babies heartbeat which i do every day. Anyone have any ideas of something to ask? Or am i just missing something?

I feel the same way. We go over what I am feeling body wise and listen to the baby's heartbeat, but that is about it. I know as time goes on we will talk more about labor and delivery and plans after birth, but right now there is just not much to say.

We generally don't talk about much either, unless I have a specific question. My last appt was right after my ultrasound and I literally talked to the dr for 5 minutes! That even included a question I had about having shortness of breath!

From my last pregnancy, I dont remember them being much different. When you get to the 24wk appt I think the dr will start measuring your fundus as well, plus you will probably have urine checks (if you arent doing those already), so that will "liven" things up, but other than that... not much goes on until 30+ weeks.

It was pretty uneventful. I guess at my next appt she will start measuring my belly and then go for the glucose test.

Yeah that's pretty normal. Things will pick up soon with more testing, feeling baby's movement, and generally getting ready for baby.
