I went in this morning for my hour glucose screening. Hoping to not recieve the dreaded call that I failed & then have to go back for the 3 hours test.
Here is alittle update on what's been going on so far:
I went in for a follow-up anatomy scan on Thrusday 6/23 (24w6d) and the baby is doing great. He's healthy & seems happy & weighing in at a whopping 1 lb 15 oz. The OB that's taking care of all my screening thinks that baby is growing to big. He's still measuring alittle over 5 days ahead. The doctor came in after my U/S & said " so I'm going to guess you've gained about 15lbs so far this pregnancy!" My reply "No, I've actually lost about 10 according to my last doctor appt." He said then he beleives that I'm probably feeding the wrong foods to the baby. He said we'll wait till you get the glucose test done & wants me back in 9 weeks to see how much the baby weighs then. Ok, from what I've read an average weight for a fetus at 25 weeks is about a pound & a half so mine really isn't that far off?!?!??! I'm just confused & now I'm somewhat scared & worried that my baby will get way to big & that won't be healthy for him. I also feel alittle horrible if I am feeding the baby wrong. Anyways I go to my regular OB next Tuesday 7/5 for my monthly exam so we'll see if I have yet gained any weight (I feel like I have this past 5 weeks) & I'll bring up some of the concerns form the other doctor & see what he thinks.
Oh & here is a picture from the ulrasound 6/23/11
Well this weekend is the Holiday weekend & my favorite one at that. Friday after work we'll be going to the Islands up to the trailor for the night & then heading home late Saturday night. Then on Sunday we'll be heading South to a family picnic for the whole day (2.5 hour drive), which I cannot wait to see family again. I think that on Monday the actually 4th of July is going to be a relaxing day except maybe see fireworks later that day. Then prepare for a 1/2 day at work on Tuesday then my monthly doctor appt.
Happy 4th of July :)
