24 Week Appt

I had a pretty fast, boring appointment today. :thumbsup:

Up about 6 pounds from 4 weeks ago and my uterus is measuring 2-3 weeks ahead :eek: He says he isn't worried about it unless it doesn't even out in the next couple appointments, but I thought it was pretty funny considering how "small" everyone says I am. Next appt is the GD test with my nasty fruit punch drink (UGH! Why can't his office do orange?!).

Oh, the orange is way better I agree. Wink

So happy for a great appointment!

Yay for a good appt! That orange drink is GROSS! I can't believe there is something worse. Blum 3

What, really? Crazy! But you know.. I was measuring 27 at my 26 week appt. I too don't have a huge belly yet (people tell me that all the time). Glad everything was fine!

I do my glucose test next week.. ugh.

Good luck! I had the fruit punch both times (had to do the 3 hr as well) and would prefer it that way. Orange anything to me is gross

With DD I was measuring 27 weeks at 21... I evened out. Your baby just likes to have room to move in there! What a nice mama you are to comply! Never did the glucose test - so don't know how gross it is.

I would pass on the GD test but was borderline with my first and a lot of women in my family have had it so I figure I probably ought to. Fruit punch wouldn't be gross if I liked the flavor of fruit punch normally, but I HATE it.

I love fruit punch but don't really drink it. I think I would be one of those weird people who liked the taste!

I don't remember which on I had. I'm guessing orange since it tasted like hi c. But I didn't think it was that bad. I'm debating on passing on the GD this time. I passed with flying colors both times. Eh. We will see! Glad you had a good/boring appt!

My doc says most patients don't complain about this flavor which is why they use it. I'm apparently the weird one!

SOunds overall like a good appointment. I really dislike the drink stuff for the GD testing. I opted out last time because I was never close to failing with my prior pregnancies. I will be opting out again!! As for measuring big... I don't think that's a big deal. I always measure small at the end of my pregnancies, but "usually" have average/big babies. I was measuring 31 weeks when my first dd was born weighing 7 pounds, 10 ounces at 39 weeks.

I usually measure WAY ahead right at the very end (at 40 weeks I measure 45 weeks LOL). My OB has not started measuring fundal height yet. I don't think it's considered "really" accurate until after 26 weeks, and even then, usually it can be 3-4 cm either way before they get worried about baby being too big or too small.
