Appointment and u/s today

Had another u/s today and thankfully my placenta has moved! I'm so excited about this because now DH and I DTD!! I better get as much in now as I can since I know I won't be feeling up to it for too much longer. :yahoo::yahoo:
Max is looking good. Measuring at 2.2 lbs and still very active. We got some good 4d shots but I left those at work so I'll scan those in tomorrow. Since I have gestationall diabetes I'll go in every 4 weeks (which is what I've been doing) but they want to measure his size and everything.
After my u/s I had my regualr OB appointment. I'm down 1 lb which is no biggy since I'm already plus size to begin with. Still down 10 lbs since I got knocked up. HB is good at 155. He measured me for the first time but didn't tell me how I was I didn't ask. We talked about the GD and I asked about having to go in for NST's. He said about 6 weeks before delivery I'd have to go in for twice weekly NST's. I'm bummed about this. Had to do this with DS as well though not bc of gd. It's just more of a hassle than anything really but I guess I'll do what I have to do.
Anyway, all in all, not a bad appointment.

Glad everything looks good!
That's a bummer about the NSTs, but it will be worth it all in the end.

Hope you and DH were able to have some fun last night Wink

I am glad the baby Max is doing well. You are really doing well with your GD and weight gain. I am doing OK so far with my GD but not so great with the weight gain.

I am in the same boat as far as u/s and NST's. I am glad to get to see the babies every 4 weeks, but I am not looking forward to the NST's twice a week. I start my NST's next Thursday.

I am so happy that your appt went well and that you got to see the little guy again. Especially happy that you and DH got to dtd. It's very frustrating not being able to.
