Which is good
BP was good, baby's HB was 160 bpm, urine was fine, my ultrasound results/measurements from last Friday were all normal, and I have hardly gained any weight (yippee)!
I can't believe how little weight I have gained. I know I will pack it on towards the end but today I am already half done my pregnancy and I only weigh 136 lbs. When I am not pregnant I usually sit between 130 and 135 - however I think I was down to around 127 when I got pregnant this time, not sure why cause I eat like crap! So at the most I have maybe gained 10 lbs so far, and I started out way lower than I usually do. Anyways, happy about that!
I will see him again in 4 weeks and he'll give me my paperwork for the glucose test then. My babies get bigger every time so I am always nervous about GD, but I haven't had it yet.
And my kids were good in the waiting room, so that's nice too
YAY for an all around great appt! So glad to hear everything looks good. I'm a bit envious on the lack of weight gain...but still happy for you!
I guess a hb of 160 goes against the boy/girl heartbeat theories hey?
Yay for boring appointments! Oh and some weight envy here I think I have gained enough for the both of us during this pregnancy. I was up to 156.6 according to my scale this morning...I had just weaned DS2 and gained weight right before getting pregnant so that didn't help. I think I started somewhere around 142ish. So yeah, it's a lot.
I hope you have no problem with the GD test. I failed the one hr test with DS1 and had to do the 3 hr. It came back fine but I always wonder about it. I haven't had big babies but I also have early babies...DS2 was 7 lbs 4 oz at a few days shy of 37 wks. I'm sure he would have been huge if I'd gone to 40 weeks or beyond. May be this one will surprise you and be a little smaller.
Sandra, I wouldn't worry about GD. Yes, all your babies have gotten bigger but each pregnancy has lasted longer as well. The longer they are inside the more they will weigh.
And just so you all know, Sandra's belly is so cute right now

Sounds like a great appointment. And yes, the HR thing is a total wives tale! My boy was high, and one of my girls was always in the 120 - 130 range. Add another jealous person on the low weight gain. I was up 17 pounds at my 16 week appointment. Thankfully I don't pack it on at the end though. I actually tapper off and gain next to nothing the closer to the end I get. I hope that continues to hold true for me. Anyway, from all your pics, you look great and baby sounds like he is 100% healthy!!
