Then we took off for the regular OB's office. The "doc of the day" at the regular OB (since you never see the same one) was Dr. Bassil. Kurt and I were not terribly impressed with him. First of all, he is a Florida Gator. I did try to put that behind us and like him but then he started criticizing my weight. So far I have gained 3 lbs. according to their records. Dr. Bassil told me I need to gain no more than 15 lbs. throughout the whole pregnancy. This is completely contrary to what every doctor has told me thus far. Does he realize I'm having triplets? The babies, placentas, amniotic sacs, increased blood and fluid alone will weigh roughly 25 lbs. WTF??? Luckily I shouldn't have to see him again. I told Kurt no "jorts" wearing Gator is going to deliver our babies! The other OB answered all of our questions and he didn't bother with the doppler because he said it would be too hard to figure which heartbeat belonged to which baby. So he basically did nothing but talk to us.
Why I'm not stepping on the scale
