Doctors Visit Today

My appointment was at 10:30 this morning. I did the usual go sign in and then went to the bathroom to pee in a cup. I had to go into a different bathroom this time and its not very well lit. That made it hard to see if I was peeing in the cup or not. I know that was probably TMI.

My name was called and the nurse weighed me. I only gained 1 pound since last month. I didn't think that was too bad. My blood pressure was 118 over 76. She also pricked my finger to see how my iron count was and to make sure I'm not anemic. She said it looked great. Thankfully I don't have to have that done for a while. Which makes me very happy.

I finally got to meet a doctor today, Dr. Alt. Although I felt like it was rushed. She was very nice. I talked to her all about the concerns I had last week such as: mild cramping, feeling like my stomach was falling when I would stand, and other pains inside. She said all of that is normal. The pains I believe we're from my little boy kicking my uterus or cervix really hard. I was able to hear his heartbeat again. That's the best part of the visit. Last time his heartbeat was 133 bpm this time it was 142 bpm. He has a very strong heartbeat. Like music to a Mother's ear. She also measured from the top of my uterus to my pelvic bone and said it was 24 inches. She said everything looked and sounded great.

My next visit is August 13th at 11:00am. I'll taking the glucose test. I'm not looking forward to it. Thankfully I can eat breakfast before I go. I have to remember to limit foods high in sugar and carbohydrates. 3 more weeks!


  1. I'm glad that the appointment went well!

  2. Glad it went well :) Have you guys decided on any names yet?
