Everything was looking good, blood pressure was low, baby's heartbeat was 156 beats per minute. I actually lost 2 1/2 pounds from last time as I have had low appetite for most of this pregnancy between m/s and just plain old sick (caught one of those nasty bugs going around at Thanksgiving and just finally shaking the last of that).
I asked the midwife about the pelvic rest and she said I don't actually have to not DTD but just be cautious if we do and if I have spotting afterward that's a sign I shouldn't do it anymore. Also not to lift any refrigerators or anything like that, lol! I have an U/S scheduled for Feb. 28 to see if my placenta has moved up-it probably will and even if it doesn't she said I may still be able to deliver vaginally since it is borderline. So not worrying about that at all. I have to call to schedule my next regular appointment as they didn't have next months schedule up yet. And I can't believe I am over halfway already, this pregnancy is really flying by.
Glad to hear that you had a good appointment! I'll bet your placenta is where it needs to be by the end of Feb. I had the same thing (borderline low placenta) with T, and it was fine by the time I was in my third tri. I agree with you that the pregnancy is flying by. We'll all be in the third trimester before we know it!!!
