Good News for BGB!

BGB and I just got home from Mount Sinai and all is well. Nine and a half weeks to go and she's doing perfectly. In fact, her placenta is now well out of harms way! YEAH!

She's very active and is growing well. She's average in terms of her growth and scored perfect on all her other tests. I passed my tests too, with good blood pressure and weight gain. (Good weight gain? HA!)  They're going to check my thyroid again at our next check-up, but that seems to be well managed by medication, much like my nausea.

I've been having a few more Braxton-Hicks contractions the past week or so, and I don't have the energy I did when I was at this point in the pregnancies with the boys, but that's to be expected. I'm not 30 anymore after all.  A long weekend of little sleep is probably making it worse this week but a few more naps a couple of sleep-ins this weekend will hopefully help at little bit.

Next week we see our Oshawa OB and we go back to Mount Sinai is two weeks, and will alternate seeing the doctors weekly. That will likely be our permanent schedule until this little peanut decides it's time to come out and see the world, or until Old Man Winter decides it's time to give us a serious wallop, whichever comes first.

  1. Congrats on your baby, and health check up! I remember those check ups well, and I can't say I miss them. I always felt like it was a whole lot of waiting for very little result. But maybe I just went to a crappy medical practice ;-)
    The pregnancies were, however, very worth the wait :)
