I had my follow up u/s to check out my placenta and my 32 week appointment today back to back. My placenta has moved up far enough so I no longer have a marginal previa, so no worries about a c-section for that, yay! Got to see my little girl on the u/s which was nice-it makes it seem more real that there is a baby in there and not just some little alien that likes to kick my guts, lol! Baby is head down too so I'm happy she is in the right position-I thought she was, but I am not very good at identifying baby parts so I wasn't 100% sure.
My appointment went well, I only gained 2 lbs. in the last 4 weeks so I was happy about that since I feel like I've been eating a ton of junk lately. Baby was measuring 32 weeks and my blood pressure was also good and the labs they drew last time all came back with good results. I reviewed my hospital's policy on various things with the midwife that was on call today since its been a couple years. She was helpful, the only thing I didn't like was that she is also a midwife for another hospital that I am not planning to deliver at so she spent a lot of time telling me about how things were done at this other hospital and encouraging me to check it out. I finally told her that I was planning to stick with my original hospital as I am not going to mess with figuring out how to get to the other hospital and seeing if my insurance would cover me at that one when I am already familiar with my hospital, plus at her other hospital they separate the mothers and babies while the mother is getting settled into her postpartem room, whereas at my hospital they don't as they don't have a nursery - unnecessary separation would be a major problem for me so I am good with my choice, thanks. I go back in 2 weeks for my next appointment, I'm going to see if I can find my old birth plan and tweak it to go over with the midwife at that appointment.
