I had my 31 week check up this afternoon. Everything was fine. Blood pressure, baby's heart beat, etc. The most exciting part was, I was actually down 1/2 lb according to their scale! Woohoo! Taking that into account, I've only gained 1/2 lb in the last six weeks, which I'm super excited about. I gained plenty early on, so I'm REALLY happy that it slowed down. No idea why- I've tried to eat healthy and exercise through the whole pregnancy- nothing's changed, so I guess it's just how my body is choosing to deal with it. Either way, I'm glad to still be in a range that I'm comfortable with.
I was also really happy to hear that the little guy is currently head down. He's flipped around so much that it's been making me nervous. She did warn me that he could still flip around a bit, but it was just really nice to know that he had at least chosen to be head down for one day! Lol!
I talked to her about my low blood pressure issue that I've been having. I knew that they really can't do anything for it, but I figured I should let them know what's going on. She recommended trying to push hydration even more than I have been, making sure I always have something to eat with me, and being careful to not push it too hard when I exercise.
So that's the story... everything is looking good. As long as everything is fine, these midwives don't see patients as frequently as most OB's/midwives do, so they gave me a choice between having my next appointment in three weeks (I'll be 34 weeks) or four weeks (35 weeks). I chose three weeks. Then they'll see me again at 36 weeks, and then every week after that.
