After swim lesson Wednesday morning, I dropped LL off at my mom's house so that I could head to my doctor's appointment. I knew that this one wouldn't be a big deal - basically just hearing the heartbeat and that was it. And I was totally right - haha.
Like always, they got me back quickly to take my blood pressure, weight, etc. My blood pressure was really good (119/73). The bottom number is a *little* high for me, but not bad. No one even mentioned it. Then she took my weight. This is where things get a little confusing. According to my scale at home, I've gained 21 lbs. According to their scale (which is always MUCH higher than mine at home - like, at least 2-3 lbs), I've gained 19 lbs total. I know that the difference of 2 lbs isn't huge, but it's super strange to me that their scale is lower. If I go by that, it actually says I've LOST like 2 lbs in the past 2 weeks. I guess I'll just keep with the 21 lbs that my scale at home says?? Really, I guess this is not a big deal at all.
Marie came in and listened to the heartbeat and said that it sounded fantastic. I didn't have any questions for her, so there wasn't too much to talk about! She said in two weeks we would check to see if I was dilated, do some more labs, etc. I reminded her that she said that we would do another ultrasound at 36 weeks to check his growth and she went ahead and set us up for that, too.
So I go back in two weeks for all of that jazz AND I start my weekly visits. We're getting mega close to meeting this little guy!
