My appointment with the midwife today was so reassuring. Thank you to everyone who encouraged me to just pick up the phone and switch the appointment to this week! It was SO worth it to have peace of mind, especially with this trip to MN coming up tomorrow. Everything went great at the appointment – she was going over my bloodwork result and told me that I’m A negative RH negative, so I guess I’ll have to get the Rh shot or whatever at some point this pregnancy. Other than that, not much new news. They scheduled my big 20 week ultrasound for August 4th, so only three weeks away. I cannot wait!
*Rockstar is the size of a large onion (5.1″ and 5.9oz). At my midwife appointment today s/he was flipping around and moving while we were doing the doppler – pretty cool to think about. Today was also the first time I’ve actually heard the heartbeat. That was very cool. 🙂 Also, while I was laying on the table
kind of taking a nap waiting for the midwife to arrive, I’m pretty sure I felt the kiddo move for the first time!! I’m hoping I feel it again soon and find out I was right.
*I weighed 164.4# this morning – Down 1# from last week, so up 3.4# overall. The midwife isn’t worried about my lack of weight gain yet…she says I have plenty of time to pack it on. 🙂 Based on my BMI, etc, she said they’d be fine with me gaining 15-25# overall.
I’ll take my normal belly pic in the morning, but right now I’m exhausted and this pic that Charlie took of me with an onion today will have to do!
