Went to my doctor's appointment this afternoon. Things are looking good.
Granted, I've gained six freakin' pounds in the past four weeks. I asked the doctor if that seemed excessive but based on my weight gain thus far, she wasn't worried about it. However, when it came time to measure my fundus height, she said, "Well you are measuring big."
I am measuring at about 30 weeks. I'm only 26 and a half weeks (I'll be 27 weeks on Sunday). While this concerned me a bit, again my doctor didn't seem worried. She said at my next ultrasound in two weeks, we'll check the fluid and make sure there is not too much. Has anyone else measured 3-4 weeks ahead like that? Does it mean anything? I mean, I read it could mean absolutely nothing, other than the fact that I'm measuring "big". Just curious.
Also, at that ultrasound we'll be checking the location of my placenta to see if it has moved up (as it should). Let's keep our fingers crossed that this bad-boy-placenta has hitchhiked up north!! I'm really hoping for a vaginal birth, and not a c-section, if I can help it!
I was also given the go-ahead to have my 1-hour glucose test done. I got my bottle of orange-flavored yumminess (that was sarcasm, in case you wondered) and I'm not looking forward to that, at all! I've heard too many stories from other ladies about how sickeningly sweet it is (and you're listening to a girl who doesn't like normally sweet drinks as it is, never mind something that will probably taste over-the-top grossly sweet to me!). And then exactly one hour later, I have to get the bloodwork done. So I'll probably do that one morning this week. Since I have to fast three hours (after my meal) before I can drink it, I'll have to do it on a weekday morning. We already have plans for 10:00am on Saturday, otherwise I'd just do it then.
Anyway, we listened to baby Hunter's heartbeat and it sounded perfect! And my doctor cracked me up. While we were listening, she said, "Hello there, honey!" You can tell she is a Mommy, herself. ;-) My blood pressure as well was "great". So for the most part, things are looking up!
After my ultrasound appointment, we go to appointments every two weeks. In the words of Daryl, "Holy moly!" Time seems to be speeding up now. Just more reason for me to feel anxious about all the unfinsihed items on our to-do list!
