30 Week Appointment

Yesterday, I had my 30 week appointment. I passed my gestational diabetes test but I am slightly anemic. I was the same way with Tucker, I just have to add one iron pill a day and he said that would explain the tiredness I've suddenly had in the past few weeks. Her heartrate was 142 and he didn't mention how I measured and I neglected to ask.

He did let me know that it's quite common to go into labor early with the second baby, even more so if you get pregnant within a year of your last pregnancy so I am a little panicked now. I have so much to do still! I have to make it to 37 weeks in order to deliver at the Birth Center. Of course, this baby is a McMillen so I am not sure she'll be arriving early at all! My goal is to have everything ready and in order by August 1st, just to be on the safe side. My next visit is in 2 weeks and we will be discussing the birth plan.

28 Week Appointment

Today was my 28 week appointment and gestational diabetes test. If I don't hear anything from my doctor, then I passed the test so we'll just have to wait and see! My doctor was on a delivery today so I saw the midwife instead. She was very quick but I'm sure that is because she was just filling in for him. I am measuring on track at 28 weeks and Tater's heartrate was 146. I also gained another big chunk of weight putting me at 14 total. Not too bad, but it sure makes my 15 pound total gain goal a bit unachievable now. ;) I am now at the point of being seen every 2 weeks until 36 weeks, then I will be seen weekly! Eek! I am getting close!
