A co worker told me(when I was telling her that my appointments are now every 2 weeks) that sometimes she skipped appointments because:
Quote” who really needs their weight and bp checked every week?”
She is one of those who had the “perfect pregnancy”:
She got pregnant on her honeymoon on the first try.
She never had morning sickness.
She was never uncomfortable.
She never had any swelling/bp issues.
She even had a c-section at exactly 40 weeks(without labor) planned because her baby was 9 lbs 8 oz.
She breastfeeds with no problems,
and has a perfectly cute kid.
Yeah, I hate her guts.
I wanted to say: ” some of us aren’t comfortable skipping appointments”.
Besides, why would I want to? I “like” BP checks and chatting with my midwife and hearing the baby’s heartbeat!
I think this just highlights the differences between those guys who have everything go right and those of us who have had everything go wrong.
But even so, that kind of irked me.
