@Susy checking heart rate, my blood pressure/ weight and “any questions?” Essentially
I had mine measured at my 24 and 28wk appointments and they also checked baby's heartbeat.
What else are your doctors doing if not that?
My doctor has been measuring my belly at every appt to make sure baby is growing on track.
I’ve never had them measure my belly, I was also annoyed that it seemed my doctors sucked. So I said something. Again and again. Every time I had a question or concern. Speak up to your doctors, no one else will. Advocating for yourself and your child is super important.
I had a belly measurement around 24 or 25 weeks. Haven't had one since but I also switched doctors when I moved out of state. I'll get a growth scan every 2 weeks moving forward so that's how they will measure baby I guess. My belly is way bigger then it should be so I doubt the measuring tape method will be accurate 😅 also I can't stand when doctors just throw meds in the mix as a solution for everything 😡 try meditation or pregnant yoga or a prenatal massage. I scheduled a prenatal massage at a wellness center and it's only $80-$90 for 60 mins....so overdue for me. Been pretty emotional this pregnancy myself
I’m feeling a little alarmed that a simple to do hasn’t been done from my doctor. I also asked at the appointment if she’d check my iron and vitamin d levels because I’m so tired all the time and me emotions have been harder to handle and she said she tested my iron last time (4 weeks ago) and they were fine and as for the mood she can prescribe Zoloft 😑 nothing against Zoloft but that wasn’t my request .
My first was at 24 weeks!
28 weeks and haven’t had it measured yet. I go in for my appointment next week so we shall see
mine started at 20 weeks!
My doc did this at my 24 and 28 week appointment. At my 24 week appt, I had asked why they weren’t providing me with any status of how her growth is pacing through ultrasound, and they said starting this appointment (24 weeks) they check growth through fundal height. I’ve noticed that many practices/hospitals have different policies but it seems like they should be checking growth via one method or another.
It’s definitely worth asking!
Mine didn’t measure me until my 28 week appt
Mine measured me at 24 weeks quickly...I have my next appointment on Tuesday
I’ve had it done once so far! I’m 28 weeks as of tomorrow. I think they took the measurement about 3/4 weeks ago!
