Update 17w 5d

I went to the hospital today, and saw another registrar. Fortunately, I also saw the first doctor I had seen there, who I really like. She is the senior fellow, and is specialising in high risk pregnancies. She (Roshini) has taken a special interest in my case, and apparently I will be able to see her at each weekly visit, rather than a different resident each week. This is great news – I will be able to have a single point of contact, and it’s someone I both trust and like, and who has a sense of humour!

So I am still healthy, still have normal blood pressure, normal pee, normal blood. Still pregnant (still spewing, though much lees), and still have two little heartbeats banging away. Oh, and I have lost 7kg since I booked in a couple of months ago.

If I owe you an email, you can expect it in the next couple of days, I am slowly catching up 🙂

  1. All good news (except the spewing of course). Voltaire once said “The art of medicine consists of keeping the patient amused while nature heals the disease”; Although I hasten to add that in no way am I implying that the little heartbeats are a disease, but I think you get the gist. I am glad you have found someone so capable of keeping you amused. S xo

  2. Jesus. Fracking extreme way to lose a few pounds Lara. And they say it’s diet and exercise.. Bah! The trick is fear and spewing and bedrest – who knew?
