Baby Update — Great (3+ Hour) Appointment: Right On Track

Man- I feel like I ran a marathon today. Usually when I go to the bathroom I get winded. Forget about going to three different doctor’s appointments in one morning. All in – I was out of my house for almost 4 hours which is TOTALLY INSANE FOR ME as of late.

But the results were really worth it.

  1. The baby is growing at a perfectly normal rate. He is in the 53rd percentile – totally average. And believe me – average is what we are aiming for these days!!!
  2. Contraction-wise, I had a little irritability but the doctors were NOT concerned. They told me to keep drinking water and I will.
  3. Belly is soft.
  4. Heart rate is great.

I am one happy camper. I don’t have to go back to get my contraction measurements for THREE WHOLE WEEKS.  That’s like a mini-vacation!! Did I just win the lotto?

Tomorrow I hit 31 weeks. YEAH!! I feel so good. I really do. The end is near. The baby is healthy and normalcy is right around the corner.

Today was a very good day. 🙂
