29 week appointment

Went back to the OB yesterday for an appointment. So far, everything is looking good. Here are the stats:

BP - 120/60

Weight - I gained my first official pound

Pee - no sugar

Brooke said he's got hair. What is it about that that just makes me smile so much?

He's weighing in at 3 lbs 4 oz - which is the 50% for this gestational age. Thank goodness!!! I've been sweating him being 10 lbs at birth, so I'm glad to know so far he's on track. Granted, he can still become a quite large baby, but as long as I keep my sugar closely controlled, we should be doing okay.

So far, he's still breech. Brooke said he's really crammed up underneith my ribs on my right hand side. That explains why I'm so miserable and can't breathe or get comfortable. It is still early, so no reason to be concerned that he's breech. They won't stress about it until about 36 weeks if he still hasn't turned. I'll probably decide to start freaking about it at about 33 weeks.

I go back in 2 weeks at 32 weeks for 1 last regular appt. Then I will start weekly appts with non-stress tests and biophysical profiles. At least there's an upside to diabetes - lots of extra monitoring and weekly ultrasounds to see my little guy.

I know I just posted a picture a few days ago, but I really love this new top I got, so I had to share another one. :)

First thing I said when your page came up was...I love that top...and then I see you mention it. It's really cute. Glad things are still going well.
