OB appointment (1/5)

First stats: No weight gain this time due to being sick for last appt, total gain 11 lbs(I was fluffy to begin with). BP 115/72(was slightly dizzy from it going so low but Dr was happy with it). Measured 37 cm which is pretty consistant with being 2 weeks ahead, but we're not changing the date of the c-section.

Now for the fun part:OB walks into room grinning and says "We do not have a growth problem! I was a little surprised she's as big as she is." I then tell her the stats for Liesel: 6.5 lbs estimated, 2 weeks ahead. Says my dr: Well this one might be a little bit bigger and early too then. Totally easy going about it. She asked me where head was this time since she is definately breach, then opted to kick the punch the heck out of the doppler. Smile

Had our first NST done. Liesel was not too happy about sitting around for it. Hiccups, kicks, rolling back and forth, and 3 contrax (2 BH, 1 real) sort of complicated things. But in the end it was good. Starting weekly checks now. And Dr said she would only check dialation once maybe twice unless baby flips because it doesn't progress quite as quickly with breach, and I'm scheduled anyway.

As for pictures, the CD they gave me is nearly useless unless I can find a reader that converts the hospital file format to something more common. I can see them, but not export them. And my printer doesn't like the images either. Bah!

Sorry about the dang CD- that's annoying. Also, sorry you were sick but I'm glad you're feeling better! I can't wait to see how big she is!!!! We're getting so close- its so exciting! So you could feel the real contraction? Do you have them a lot?

Oh yeah, definately felt it. It wasn't a bad one as they go, but definately uncomfortable. I've had a few in the last week, 3-4 maybe and all on different days. The BH I get at least 5-6/day now, so I'm careful to watch the difference. At this point (being "in the 36th week") my goal is at least 1-2 weeks longer. After that, other than a lack if name for her, she can come when she's ready.
