So other than having to wait for a very long time to see the Dr. all news is good. My pee test was normal. My blood pressure is a low 98/64, I gained 1 pound, my belly measured 22 cm (which is perfect for 22 weeks pregnant) and the baby's heart rate was in the 140-150 range. Baby G was moving around quite a bit and made it a bit difficult to measure the the HR but she kept following the baby around with the Doppler and finally got it done. The Dr was really nice and I would feel great about delivering with her which is really comforting. My next appointment is in a month and I get to do the fun glucose test. I must say that they are really smart and they sent me home with the stuff to drink so that I can drink it before I go to the Dr's office next time. If I pass I will be all set and this should be my last blood draw. I also got the registration packet from the hospital that we need to send back in. It has a form for our birth plan. My current plan is to have a baby. I know that sounds flip but I want to have as few expectations going into the delivery. I just don't know what to expect. I mean the experiences of different women vary so much. If I go by my mother then natural childbirth is "fun". If I go by my dad (who I know has not had a baby) all I have to do is focus and get the job done (thanks dad...although his only experiences in childbirth is with my mom, the woman who says having a baby doesn't hurt and is fun). If I go by my cousin it is hell but worth it. I am hoping that I am more towards my mom but I am realistic that it is probably a little closer to my cousins impression. I am going to go for pain meds if I want them. If the Dr say c-section I will go with it. I just don't want to add to my stress about it.
On another note I keep seeing a person from Haverhill, MA keep coming up on the live feed and I wonder who that is. Since my parents and my best friend live there I am curious if it is one of them or another reader from Haverhill. I know my mother in law is a reader (Hi Cindy!) So if you are our Haverhill reader let me know who you are.
