Doc Visit

I wasn't supposed to go till Tuesday but I was having some pains and other things that they wanted to see me today
Started out yesterday I had my Glucose test then came home from work last night and I threw up and had diarrhea but only one episode I have also had this sharp pain above my belly i thought it was her foot or something but the pain has gotten worse and more constant. I have also noticed blurry vision at times over the week.

So I called the doc and he wanted to see me today

This is what he said

First of all my glucose test came back I failed :( so I have to go for the 3 hour test but my doc says they do come back abnormal sometimes and is thinking that i will be one of those but still need to get the test done

2nd I am anemic so I need to take Iron and start eating food with more Iron. That is why I have had a blurry vision lately. He says the baby looks good - her heartbeat was good but she needs to gain some more weight she is a tiny thing so I need to eat more spinach, broccoli, and red meat.

3rd my sharp pain above my belly and my back pain could be a gall stone but he said nothing can be done about it if that is what it is no doc will do anything about it with me being pregnant :(

I go in two weeks for another check up.

My blood pressure was good which really relieved them ! and me!!!!!! that's what i was worried about.

So now to deal with these pains and get my iron in me and some weight on the lil one.

28 Weeks

28 Weeks
Third trimester begins this week I can't believe it

Still feeling good besides my back - It has really been bothering me but I'm dealing

Today I have had an emotional day just wanting to cry at anything! Hate my maternity pants! They must think that everybodys butt grows along with there belly! I look like I'm wearing grandma jeans and I hate it but what can I do!

I'm starting to get that nervousness they talk about in the books
I'm getting scared, what it will be like giving birth? What will it be like having a daughter?
but yet at the same time I can't wait to meet her, hold her, look into her eyes and love her.
Just a lot going through my head right now. It's getting very real and very close :)

Hello :)

pretty profile
I'm going to be a Rockette!
I'm definatly a girl!

Alessandra is a superstar she was on the big screen today :)
Went to the specialist and they did an ultrasound and Todd and I got to see her on a plasma tv :)
Her heart (we got to see all four chambers), kidneys and brain looked great :)

She weighs 2 lbs and she is defiantly a girl!

The Doc said she just wants my doctor to really be checking my blood pressure the last trimester but other then that me and baby look great. She has no worries. She said I'm like Vanilla (not really sure what she meant by that) but I think it's good ;)

Doc visit

I went to the doc yesterday for my monthly check up :)

The heartbeat was really good, doc said she was being very active.

I have gained 15 lbs since I got pregnant.

My blood pressure was good.

He is sending me to see a specialist in Buffalo to get everything checked out with my kidneys, even though my urologist said things were fine, my doc would feel better if I got another opinion from someone who deals with pregnancy. He just wants to make sure there is nothing I need to be doing different the 3rd Trimester and that he doesn't need to be doing anything different during delivery. He is almost positive she will have him just really watch my blood pressure but would feel more comfortable if she checked things out. I'm glad about that, because I don't really like my urologist, and am glad my doc is being thorough. She will probably do an ultrasound - yeah :) we can double check that she is a little girl ;)
