34 Week OB Visit

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!
