We get to the clinic this morning & I was checking August in. They told me that the appointment with our doctor had been cancelled. Hmm, that's weird. I had confirmed using their automated service on Friday. And obviously I didn't want to cancel as 1) I was there and 2) I'm a paranoid mother of a newborn & want to make sure he's getting enough to eat.
So, I headed over to the pediatric department to get things sorted out. They told me there that "I" had called at 8:42am this morning to cancel the appointment - and I needed to reschedule, a morning appt for later in the week. WTF?
Then they proceeded to tell me that my Doctor's schedule was full & I could *maybe* see someone else. Um, no. I love my pediatrician & am friends with her & most DEFINITELY wanted to see HER. Well, after some finagling they worked us in.
I'm still a bit troubled by this. Some people have suggested identity theft or insurance fraud - but that still seems weird to me. August isn't even ON our insurance yet! And they didn't have info about ME just about him. Plus, as I said, my doctor really kNOWS me/us and would figure it out if someone was trying to get THEIR newborn in under August's name....I'm confused.
Anyway - the appt went great. He was so good the whole time (even though he was hungry).
Weight 7lbs 12 oz!! (22th percentile) YAYA!!!!! he regained his birthweight (7lbs 11.5oz) by the 2 week milestone! Yay!! And that's on 95% breastmilk. Whohoooooo!! So even though I have to feed him hourly - it looks like it's working.
Height 20 1/2" (33rd percentile) still down from birth height but that's okay.
Head Circumference 14 1/4" (31st percentile) (Dahlia TOTALLY has him beat - still - on this ranking - haha).
He is doing & looking good. He's gaining weight, his umbilical cord fell off & healed up nicely; he's starting to track with his eyes & he seems so much more present than he did 2 weeks ago...
I can't believe it's already been TWO WEEKS!!
Crazy, time flies...
