Just have to get this out because I keep going over and over it in my head lol.
I am so stinking nervous about Zavier’s next dr’s appointment.
I was a little bit before yesterday… Two different reasons. One is kinda silly because it really has nothing to do with him. Kalila’s 9 month visit was not the best. She’d lost a normal amount of weight, but was weighed incorrectly the visit before (seriously they left her diaper on when they aren’t supposed too) and exaggerated it resulting in a weight check and a lot of stress. I know I’ve mentioned that before so sorry for the repeat. There’s no way the same will happen. I know Zavier’s gained weight since his last visit, his loss was at 5 months and nicely in between visits lol. He is gaining slower than before though (again normal) and there’s that little part of me worried it’ll come up. The other is really more worrying. His rashes. Dr M was not happy about them the last visit. I don’t remember if I mentioned it on here or not. She thought they were yeast (nope) and keeps trying to push fungus cream. He has sensitive skin… the rashes are not just on his diaper area (and none look/feel like yeast). She’s not happy he’s had so many (well neither am I lol) and he just can’t have one at our next visit. So putting stress on myself there because I have no idea what is causing it. We’ve figured out a few of them, for instance I can’t drink lemonade. But… sigh.
But now I have a whole new reason to worry.
We’re seeing a new dr. Apparently Dr. M is taking a leave of absence and they don’t know when she’ll be back. I found out when we rescheduled his 9 month appointment. I might not have minded so much if we’d seen this other dr before… but we haven’t. Totally new dr. Have no idea what she’s like. I’ve found one review online that says she’s good with kids (personable). That’s good… but doesn’t help much lol.
Deep breath. I know it comes down to what we say goes… but are we going to have to deal with someone giving us a hard time w/ our choices? So far we’ve been lucky. Dr. M is great. Esp compared to some of the ones I’ve heard horror stories about lol.
Well to be honest with myself I think those are part of the problem… Maybe I need to avoid Cafemom like the plague for the next month lol.
But seriously it does have me worried. Esp the stories about dr’s who’ve retracted the poor baby before the parent could stop them. Makes me wish we had one of Dr. Momma’s onsies lol. Is probably (now) my biggest worry about the visit, but not the only one. There’s also what I mentioned above… esp the weight thing. I was a tiny bit worried about it before.. but now? Are we gonna get grief for it slowing down? Or if she thinks he’s gaining too fast? Yes I’ve heard of that coming up too lol. Not as big a worry but its there among other “little ones”.
Thankfully I don’t feel like I’m completely off my rocker here because Baba’s a little nervous too and I’m normally the one to over worry with the kids.
Ok done venting now lol. Hopefully this’ll help me not overthink it so much lol. Maybe. Possibly…
