Entering Our 31st Week

Only a couple months left until she arrives! Mike and I went to our OB appointment yesterday. Here are the stats:

- Blood Pressure: 103/65

- Temperature: 97.2 degrees

- Weight gain: 22 lbs so far

- Fundal Measurement: 29.5 cm

- Baby's Hearbeat: 150 bpm

- Gestational Diabetes Test Results: Excellent (blood sugar was 95)

- Last Month's Ultrasound Results: I still have a low-lying placenta (it's only moved two tenths away in four weeks), but our doc says it's nothing to worry about. She said even if I delivered today, I would still have a natural birth. However, we are scheduled for a FIFTH ultrasound just to be sure. I'm not complaining, we get to see Abby Kate yet again before she's born!

Oh, and I got a prescription for my chronic heartburn. I hope it helps. Otherwise I feel great!

Wanna see a picture of those 22lbs gained... Glad you're feeling well. I can't believe she's almost here. HEck- I can't believe Big Griff IS here.

Sara said...

Great news, Case!! You need to post all these ultrasound pics!

Lori said...

Glad things are going well. I never answered your question about heartburn. It was HORRIBLE!!! It kept me up at night, etc. I'm glad you got a prescription! Any tips for fighting off or reducing the nausea? It seems to be getting worse.

Casey, I'm so glad they are keeping such a good eye on you and the baby. I can't wait until Abby Kate gets here. We will see you soon.

Yay for getting to see Abby Kate again!I am so glad all your stats are so good. 22lbs...where are you hiding it? You look great!!!!

Sommer I think she is hiding it in her "...lovely lady lumps, check it out" Ha Ha! Whenever I hear the "My Humps" song I think of good times with the Stafford Wives. So glad to hear all is going well with Abby Kate!
