#1 +hpt on cd 26 (11dpo) and #2 +hpt on cd 31 (16dpo)
7/28/09 16w6d Introducing William Rourke
1st appointment: 5/29 Nurse Consult
2nd appointment: 6/9 It went GREAT! The doctor said that the baby was measuring right on target (9w6d) with a hr of 176. Right when we saw the baby (s)he was wriggling around. It was so beautiful. I just wanted to stare all day. I also have a UTI but but hopefully a short round of antibiotics will correct it fast but all other labs were perfect.
Nuchal Screening: 7/6 (@ 2:15) The ultrasound went well. They baby looked great and we got to see all the different parts. The heart rate was 155 bpm. I was technically 13w5d but the baby measured 14w3d so we couldn't get proper risk assessment. The doctor said that anatomically everything looks really good so I am not very worried. I asked for a gender prediction but the tech said due to lawsuits they no longer did them unless they were 100% sure. And this early, they are never sure.
3rd appointment: 7/6 (@ 9:50) The appointment went really well. My doctor found the heartbeat really quickly but after about 5-10 seconds the baby swam away and she couldn't find it again. My weight was good and blood pressure was a tad high but doctor wasn't concerned.
Early Gender Scan 7/28: Our baby was asleep the entire time. Laying on its stomach with its back facing up. The bottom (which is what we wanted to see) nestled low into my pelvis. But, we found it...It's a boy!!!! The heart rate was in the 150's and he is growing right on target. For some reason we got to see his face. He had his hands resting right underneath his chin. So cute.
4th appointment 8/4: Doctor said everything is great! My weight, urine and blood pressure are all great. Doctor said things are just rolling along great. Listened to baby's heartbeat, it was still in the 150's and nice and strong, again doctor said heartbeat was great! I guess I couldn't ask for a better appointment! I also got my paperwork to make the anatomy scan appointment. Even though I know the gender already I am excited to see baby Rourke again and to make sure everything is growing on schedule.
Anatomy Ultrasound 8/25: Apparently the u/s place made my appointment for a different office but didn't tell me. I went to the office I called and luckily they were able to fit me in. Everything looked good but I have to wait for my doctor's appointment to get full results. I did see all organs and all chambers of the heart. I saw 2 arms, 2 legs, 2 hands, 2 feet and 10 fingers and 10 toes. Also confirmed Rourke is still a boy! It was great to see him again and to see how much he has grown.
5th appointment 9/1:Another great appt! The hb was in the 150's but he was being very active. We went over the results of the u/s and he is measuring right on target, all organs are accounted for, are the proper size and are functioning as they should. Also, the placenta, umbilical cord and cervix all look perfect. He weighs .9 lbs. We talked again about scheduled c-section or VBA2C. I told them I am still up in the air so we'll see. The fact that they keep asking me makes me thin I should really *think* about my decision rather than just taking the easy way out by doing the c-section.
6th Appointment 9/28: Appointment went great. The doctor said my weight, blood pressure and urine all looked great...phew. Also, they baby's heartbeat sounded great and my fundal height is right on target. Doctor wants to start seeing me every 2 weeks. Seems early but oh well. Also got paperwork to do the 1 hour glucose test. I think I'll be doing next week. I've gained a total of 18 pounds (at 26 weeks).
7th Appointment 10/12: Saw the nurse practitioner today. She didn't mention anything about vitals, she never does. No news is good news on that front. We talked about c-section again and my next appt is with the OB so I have some questions for him. HB was perfect and strong and I am still measuring perfect. One thing I am dealing with is awful pin in my left rib area. Most likely due to baby and position but I have to watch it as it could be organs, too. Did my GTT test today, wasn't too bad.
8th Appointment 10/26: The appointment went great! GTT was 86 (should be below 140), also not anemic at all so my iron levels are great. Always a bit worrisome as I don't really eat red meat. I lost 1 pound and my bp was 114/78 with hr 80 bpm and my fundal height is right on target.. The baby's hr was 140 and doc said he sounded like a happy baby in there. We spoke more about my intense rib pain, just normal but I can try heat and cold compresses, and take more time off my feel when if flares up. We also talked about my c-section questions just incase I can't VBAC or I get really uncomfortable in the end and decide to schedule it early. I'm comfortable with either option, honestly, so I feel in a good place...now I just have to commit.
9th Appointment 9/9:
DS Kai 18
DS Cullan 15
DS Peyton 15
Our Newest addition due 1-6-2010
