I went in today for my last appt here! Mostly everything looks good... BP was like 115/74- higher than it ever was with DD, but I guess still ok. I'm up another 1.5lbs- at this rate I'm going to gain more weight than I did with DD, but of course, I'm hoping that at some point I'll slow down, maybe. Unfortunately, with DD, I gained fast right at the end, so I'm not holding my breath. Oh well. Actually, that isn't completely true... I'm comparing where I am weight wise to where I was weight wise with DD, but, I started this pregnancy off 10-15lbs heavier than I did hers. So technically, I've gained a lot less this time- but, I can't imagine gaining the same 35lbs this time as I did last time, because that would put me at a number on the scale that sort of horrifies me. Sigh.
Doc said baby is DEFINITELY head down, which makes me very happy. Now to just keep him/her there! We listened to the heartbeat, which wasn't that easy, because baby kept moving and kicking/punching at the doppler....but it sounded nice and strong. Love that sound. I'm now measuring 32 weeks (I'm 28- almost 29 I guess). That said, this doc, the only thing she doesn't seem to do as accurately as the other doc at this clinic is that measurement. I always measure big with her, and I was always spot on with the guy. So who knows. I guess we'll see what my midwife says when I see her.
The doc wants me to come back to pee in a cup again toward the end of the week, because for the second appt in a row, I'm showing some tiny sign of infection in my urine. White blood cells or whatever. She asked me if I've been feeling at all like I have an infection, and of course I said no, but on the way home I remembered that I was kind of thinking I might have a small yeast infection a couple weeks ago- I was very itchy every time I wiped after peeing. So, I'll go back on Thursday or Friday and see what they say, but, if it comes up positive again, I'll mention that.
Otherwise, I got my letter to present at check-in, saying I'm safe to fly, and I got my referral for chiropractic care, and a copy of my records for my midwife. So I'm all set!
DD and I fly out on Saturday night local time, and arrive in Chicago Sunday morning local time- too bad it's not really that short a flight! It's about 24 hours of travel time, but over 12 time zones, so it seems shorter to those that don't have to experience it. Can't believe I'll finally be settling into the States and appts with my midwife, etc, etc next week! Yay!
Anyway...that's what's going on with me! Sorry for the novel!
