My last OB appointment which was on Christmas Eve was pretty uneventful. Kyleigh's heartbeat was strong at 150/bpm. The mid-wife asked me the standard questions and that was about it. She said I would have one more 2 week appointment and then would be visiting every week until D-Day. My next appointment is scheduled for Jan 9th when they will test for Group Strep B. This is a routine test which I'm not worried about.
I also went to see my prenatal specialist on Christmas Eve as well. I'm trying to schedule the double visits on the same day to eliminate trips to Gainesville. Each time I visit the specialist they check my blood preasure which was normal and do an ultrasound. During the ultrasound they measure everything, Kyleigh's heart, stomach, baldder and kidney's and the fluid around her. They even take 3D/4D shots which is cool. During this appointment my fluid level had gone down which was the goal. I review my blood sugar results with the Doctor and then schedule my next visit. Apparently I will be seeing him every week until D-Day too. He advised me to double the medication he had given me to lower my sugar which completely backfired on me over Christmas.
Today, New Year's Eve I went back for an ultrasound with the specialist. He was on vacation so there was no consult this week. The tech did the same routine. My fluid level has gone back up which is disappointing but hopefully with the holidays behind us I can get it back under control. The tech bothered me this week because she couldn't make up her mind if she wanted Kyleigh to lie still or do tumbles. She started hitting my tummy with the ultrasound wand trying to get Kyleigh to move and I finally had to tell her she was hurting me.
Well I go back to see both doctors on Jan 9th. The OB will do the 1st exam since I've been pregnant so hopefully she will tell me I'm starting to dialate. After this visit I will go over to see the Specialist and hopefully I will get a good report and my sugar levels and fluid will be down again.
It's not too much longer...only 33 days to go...enjoy the picture from the 3D today
Until next week...
Happy New Year to our friends and family.
We hope each of you are blessed in 2009!
