This week I started week 31. Craziness. As we speak the hubs and I are waiting for our baby furniture to arrive! There will be a crib in my house! Wow.
Since I wasn’t sure exactly when the furniture was going to get here we took separate cars to my ob’s appointment today. I gave my sample and got on the non digital scale which I’m happy about. Last time I got on the digital scale and it told me I was over the big scary number. This time the scale showed I lost 3.5 pounds! Wow. I wonder how much is me and how much is the difference between scales, but *shrugs* The nurse asked why I lost weight and I said I have had a bit more reflux lately. She said the zantac I have been taking works just fine for that.
Then she measured me, looked at my chart, and measured me again. Turns out my stomach grew a bit more than was expected. I think she said I was measuring at 34 weeks. She thinks I had a growth spurt and she said that is probably why I have had more reflux recently. She said I might have extra fluid that is causing me to measure farther and that could be a sign of gestational diabetes, but they know I don’t have it since I just passed my three hour test. So glad that is over with!!! So to be safe I got to have an ultrasound today! I was like ooh yea, I haven’t had one in forever! They just wanted to make sure everything was ok and why I was measuring bigger. When she was trying to find his heartbeat she had a bit of a hard time because he kept moving. She asked if I had eaten any sugar this morning and I hadn’t really. He is just an active baby.
When I had my ultrasound I asked her to make sure he was still a boy and he is 😉 She took lots of pictures and I got a few really good ones to take home 😉 She didn’t see anything wrong so yea for that. She said my fluid is on the high end of normal, that he has a little bit of a big head, and almost weighs 4 pounds, which I think is good. I got a chuckle out of the big head thing since hubby mentioned one day that he felt like he had a big head and wondered if that would cause me to have issues with delivery. I didn’t get to talk to the nurse again after they got all the pictures, but I figure if anything is up they will call or tell me at my next appointment in two weeks. I wonder if measuring big stomach wise will cause me to deliver early? I have no idea about this stuff.
