Midwife appt update...

My appointment was boring. All my recent tests were fine. Baby's HB was 136 which is the lowest I've seen for this baby. DD was always around 160. Midwife showed me how to feel the top of my uterus. That was neat but not sure I'd find it again. LOL. She said we were fine to fly at 26 weeks but she's not sure about going to conference at 34 weeks. We can play it by ear but...

I can almost always find the top of my uterus. When in doubt, have an orgasm and than you can DEFINITELY find it! Smile :)

Glad your appt went well!

Glad the appointment went well Heather. My second dd always had a lower heart rate... in the 120's often times.

Oh, I forgot to say. According to hear calculations I've put on 21 lbs....and I'm only supposed to put on 25-35. Ya right! Total joke. I don't see that happening at all! Anywayssssss.....

For the record, my calculations show I've put on 16 lbs. I'm going with that. Blum 3

Heather, I'm right there with you on the weight gain. I was up 21 pounds a week ago... Thankfully my midwives could care less! Actually they are "pleased" with my weight gain. I guess by the time you have your 6th baby though, they figure that your body knows what it's doing. Wink

Yay for a good appointment. I will have to teach myself to find the top of the uterus because i know i wont "o" anytime soon lol. Im sure i've been able to find it a couple times. As far as weight gain goes, im sure your body knows what to do. I have trusted mine with both DD's because I dont gain....
