First of all, please pray for my friend Lynn. He was in a really bad motorcycle accident last night. I don't know yet exactly what happened, but I know that he broke his ankle and was run over in his mid-section and has some internal injuries. He's such a great guy, and his wife is super sweet. We are really hoping and praying everything will be ok.
I had my dr appt. yesterday, and everything is ok. I passed my glucose screening! I measured on track. I actually had a litle BH contraction while the dr was measuring me. I didn't even know, but now I know more of what it feels like. I have had some other contractions that I did feel, but as long as they are not regular, then they're ok. I'm supposed to start doing kick counts, where I see how long it takes to get 10 kicks. I did it twice last night, and I got 10 kicks in 10 minutes. Talk about active! I gained 7 pounds this month (YIKES!). Dr said that I am perfectly on track, so ok... Maybe I should lay off the ice cream a little bit though. I start going every 2 weeks now. Then at 32 weeks I go every week and get monitored for the baby's heartrate for 30 minutes. I also still go to the perinatologist every month. My 3-D u/s is in 3 weeks! That will be so fun! So it looks like the busy-ness starts now.
Every time I go to the OB she is out delivering a baby. I have not had an appt where I wasn't there at least 2 hours. She apologized, and I understand that is part of it. But I must have bad luck to have to wait so long every time. And now that I have appointments every 2 weeks and then every week, they won't be late afternoon appointments... So I'll have to miss 1/2 a day of work for each one. I drive 30 minutes to work, and the dr office is close to home. My next appt is at 10 am, so I won't go to work till afterwards. I hope we don't go broke... But I'll do whatever I need to do for this precious little boy.
Next up is perinatologist appt and level II u/s on Friday in Houston.
