So we have started doctor's appointments every 2 weeks. Went in today and everything looks good. Had our ultrasound to see if my placenta has lifted on it's own. Charles couldn't go with me, so my mom came up to go. She was excited about getting a chance for a sneak peek of her grandson. Good news is, my placenta did what it was supposed to do, and everything looks fine. Bad news is, baby Te is ornery. He did not want to cooperate and appeared to be snoozing away with both hands in front of his face. The ultrasound tech told us he is weighing in at 4 lbs and that I was measuring a week and a half ahead. Not sure what this means, but it was nice to hear that he is up to 4 lbs!
I had my monthly appointment today. My blood pressure was 100/60 and my belly is measuring on target. The baby's heartbeat is 140. I did the glucose test today to check for gestational diabetes. I was given the choice of orange or fruit punch. I doubt one was really better than the other, but I chose the fruit punch. Luckily it was really cold and I drank it super fast. I was told no news was good news and I didn't hear anything today. So yay, no gestational diabetes! I can keep eating my ice cream. I did gain 5lbs since my last visit which is not abnormal. I am just getting precariously close to Charles weight and I still have 13 weeks to go. I don't think I will be able to stay below him unless I can find a way to start bulking him up =)
