My weight had jumped a bit. I was up 5.6 pounds since my last appointment, which was almost 5 weeks ago. That's 11.2 pounds total. I was a little shocked to see those numbers, which reflect more than a pound a week since my last visit, but I think at the time I thought I had gained 7 pounds. I was relieved later on when I realized it was closer to 5 or 6! I do need to lay off the sweets I've been enjoying lately! Christmas was going to be my excuse, but my doctor didn't give me a hard time. He said he thought my weight was fine- not too far off track. The baby's heart rate was 135, which is the lowest I've ever heard them say. They said it was still within normal range. The nurse that checked said she might just be a little sleepy or they may have been picking up both our heart rates. They were training someone new on how to use the Doppler, so we got some extra time listening to that sweet sound! My blood pressure was 100/62, which I think is close to what's it's been the last couple of times. The doctor said everything with the baby looked very healthy! The blood work for the genetic screening I did at my last visit came back negative, so as far as we know, she's a healthy girl! Praise the Lord!
Chris and I have a lot of work ahead of us! First, we need to choose a name for this little girl!
