My 25 Week Appt. Too!

I also had my 25 week appointment today. I was dreading it and getting on that scale, and I guess for good reason! Despite my best efforts to keep my weight gain at bay, I still managed to pack on 7 lbs in the last month (I knew I gained 2 pounds typing that message earlier!). I have gained a total of 20. :eek: Midwife says she isn't worried and all is well, and thinks I will end up gaining less in the 3rd tri and hit about 35 or 40 lbs. I guess that is fine and I should stop stressing about it so much.

Good news is my BP finally dropped!!! WOOT! Yahoo So no more worries there. Baby's heartbeat was strong and she was active during the appt (no surprise with my little soccer player in there). My belly measures 27 weeks, so I guess I am not quite as big as I feel. She also prescribed me a belly band to help alleviate my back pain and will send me in for adjustments as necessary.

I go back in 3 weeks and then like Krystal I start up with appts. every 2 weeks. I will also be doing my GD and iron tests in 3 weeks, right after I get back from vacation.

Overall, things are going great, so I am happy!

midwives seem so much more laid back about weight gain! It's quite refreshing. That's great about your blood pressure. I hope it stays down for you. You'll have to let us know how the belly band works out.

Hurray for good appointments!

I'm so glad your bp went down!!! Try not to worry about weight. Hopefully it will come right off once baby is here!
