Good news: I had my routine OB appointment and everything seems to be going well. My doctor said that I could have gained some more weight and she would be happy, but she is fine with where I'm at right now. I haven't lost any weight (not from my pre-IVF weight anyway) so she is not concerned for now. She's happy with my progress, so I will not stress about it anymore. If I'm still not gaining much later on, she said they will monitor my and baby's progress more closely.
One thing I found out at my appointment is that she only delivers at Hospital B. I thought she delivered at Hospital A as well because the website says that she has privileges there, but she only goes with Hospital B. I prefer A - it's where I've gone and it's where Seth was born - but I don't really have a reason to dislike B so this isn't really a big deal. We live halfway between both hospitals and they're only about 10-15 minutes away from us. Hospital B has a better NICU and Perinatal Intensive Care Center (Level III vs. Level II) so that's good. Both hospitals also have newly renovated and updated private maternity suites. Cool. Hospital B also has this:
WTF is this? It's a luxurious suite featuring a spacious family area, hotel-style full-size bed for dad or partner, and elegant shower facilities. It also includes a fully stocked fridge and the optional afternoon tea time. All for the low price of $350/night in addition to your normal hospital bill. That's crazy! That's nicer than
And finally in other fun news, Seth is back from his trip to Guatemala and he brought lots of treats for Baby! A) It's exciting to have baby stuff and B) I love that Seth picked things out on his own. He chose an embroidered romper, an embroidered bit/hat/bootie set, a traditionalish Guatemalan linen top (which will look great with jeggings if Baby is a girl), and little blanket with textured tags:
I love all of it and it's definitely helping to get me excited. If everything looks okay on Monday, I think I will buy a few small items - starting with the Harry Potter things I have saved on Etsy!
