“I’m telling you right now, I can already see that you will need a vaginal ultrasound. When there is an excess of body fat, they can’t get the clear picture they’re going to want.” – OB to mother at her very first prenatal.
“You’re giving 90%. I need you to give that extra 10%. Otherwise, you’re going to end up with high blood pressure, diabetes and a cesarean section.” – OB while lecturing mother on her pregnancy weight gain.
“The goal is a baby in the 7 lb range. If your baby is born 8 lbs or more, it’s because you failed to keep your gestational diabetes under control, and your baby will have to go to NICU.” – Nurse Educator in a gestational diabetes class.
“Whoa there! You’d better slow down on that weight gain! I totally understand though, I like to sit down and eat ice cream for dinner too, but I don’t have to push it out of my vagina afterwards.” – Midwife to mother at a prenatal visit.
