Dr Appt Yesterday Went Well

Had the big scan yesterday...

Baby was looking good with her legs all stretched out and relaxing with her face towards my back (we never got her to turn around so we could see her face...lil stinker!)

Her heartbeat was around 134-138 I think and she was measuring well at 10 ounces.

The 3 hour gestational diabetes test was icky, but I passed and only had to do two blood sugar was 88 when I got there, 123 an hour after the drink, and 118 an hour after that. Whew!

The anatomy scan for the baby showed all her parts in place and in working order, and all of my bloodwork came back great and problem free for both her and me.

What a relief, eh? :)


Had a bit of pink discharge today when I went to the bathroom...trying not to freak out, just hoping that its "one of those things" and all is well.
I did feel baby girl kicking me right after, which is comforting, so I'm going to try to relax and just hope it doesn't mean anything and won't happen again.


Rusty bought me flowers yesterday and bought the baby a pink stuffed hippo. This is the first thing he bought for the baby so I guess he's beginning to accept the reality of this little girl...I know its hard for him and buying her something was a big step.
He spent almost the whole time at the doctor yesterday with his earbuds in and his face glued to his iPhone except when the doctor was in the room to do the ultrasound. He was very distracted for most of the day so I can tell that this is difficult for him to process...think he's accepting there is no turning back and there's a possibility we might get to keep this baby.
He is slowly beginning to warm up to the idea, mention the baby more often, and admit once or twice that he just can't relax until the baby gets here...the pregnancy part has no real joy for him, just mostly stress.
He mentioned that it will be a relief when he can finally feel her kicking from the outside. I can't wait for him to have that experience..I know it means a lot.

Hope everything continues to go well...even the kids are starting to talk about the baby in terms of "when the baby gets here."

Thank you Lord, please continue to watch over our daughter....

  1. I am glad to hear the appointment went well and you passed your glucose tolerance test! I bet it was soooo neat to see your little girl on the ultrasound. When I pray for you, I pray Psalm 139:13-14 (for you created my inmost body, you knit me together in my mother's womb, I praise you for I am fearfully and wonderfully made, your works are so wonderful I know them so well." I ask him to continue knitting together your baby for a healthy baby :)
