6th Month Dr. Appointment

And my last... as far as months go. I'm officially going and seeing my Dr. every other week now... I don't know if I have time for that?!

It was a pretty uneventful appointment. Weight, blood pressure (more on this), pee in a cup (sorry), questions and then meet with the Doc.

Weight is great, I've only gained 4 lbs. the whole pregnancy. Obviously this will change in the coming weeks as miss Georgia is packing on the pounds... and in turn so will I.

Blood pressure, usually low... but today, not so much. The nurse said it was borderline and that she wanted to check it again... so she did and it dropped, quite a bit. So who knows what's up with that. But because high blood pressure can cause some serious problems while pregnant, they've got me on close watch and want me to keep an eye out for any signs of
Preeclampsia (VERY serious!). So please pray that it was just a fluke from a very busy and hectic day and nothing serious!

Her heart beat sounds good. Again, very loud... I actually thought it was mine. She's getting to the point where her heart beat sounds actually like a heart beat, not just some fast
swooshing sound.

Like I said, I'm officially in the every other week club, as far as appointments go... that's A LOT when you think about it. Then in January I go to EVERY week... Yikes, if that doesn't put things in fast forward, I don't know what does. Next appointment: Friday, Dec 5th!

Keep on growing and moving Baby G... we can't wait to see you in 2.5 months!

Sounds like a great appointment! It is weird when you get in the every other week stage, and it's like, really? You like shake the doctor's hand and leave... LOL.

Keep growing baby G!

I've had a couple of fluke high blood pressures here and there, I think it is normal to have those sometimes! Can't believe you've only gained 4 lbs.! You muust feel great. :)
