My Appointment Today

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!!!

Sounds like a great appointment! Glad the pelvic rest isn't so serious and you can DTD. Haha.

Yeah, I'm not sure if I'm happy about that or sad to not have an excuse not to since I've been so out of the mood!
