Monthy OB visit

I've always heard about all the doctor's appointments you have when you're pregnant. For some reason I had the impression there would be a lot of activity at these visits. After all, why else would you need to go so often? Now that I'm starting the third trimester I get to begin going every 2 weeks.

Personally, I think they just like to charge insurance as much as possible and therefore spread out all the fun into as many visits as possible.

I went to the OB's office on Tuesday morning. The big activities of the day were weighing in, measuring my blood pressure, measuring my stomach, and listening to Baby G's heart beat. And what did I learn from all this? ...Yes, my baby is developing correctly.

I also had the excitement of getting my bottle of orange syrup to drink. Like all other pregnant girls out there, I get to take the gestational diabetes testing. Rumor is this orange drink, which I have to down in less than 5min, does not taste very good and causes a number of people to feel like they are going to loose their stomach. I'll be sure to report back after the experience.
