Bee #5

All was well at my appointment on Friday! Baby was very active and measuring larger than my dates. This is normal for me. My babies seem to grow ahead in the beginning, then slow down a bit at the end right before they come early. God knits babies perfectly.

My blood pressure was a bit elevated compared to my normal. It was still within normal range. I usually run a bit low and correct that with increased salt intake so I don't feel so weak. My OB is aware of the issues we are going through and will monitor my care.

I was excited to make plans with our doctor for the pregnancy. We are planning another VBAC and I went ahead and signed the papers acknowledging the "risks." My doctor laughed as I told him that a csection came with risks and so did walking in the parking lot to get to my van.

We will be doing one thing a little differently this pregnancy. I will be skipping the 1 hour gestational diabetes test this pregnancy. I always barely fail it and end up taking the 3 hour test. But I really despise drinking the nasty syrup so my doctor will allow me to skip the 1 hour (that I always fail anyway) and go straight to the 3 hour.

We were so relieved!

Yay for good news and a healthy growing baby! I'm sure the stress of everything going on with Xander hasn't helped your blood pressure!
