Today I had my 27 week check up at the OB's office today. Things went okay. You see, I think putting on 8lbs in one month didn't sound so bad since I have been on a cruise and a vacation to Colorado since the last time I saw the doctor. It is also Halloween season, so I have put away my share of Baby Ruths, Sweet Tarts, Sprees, Brownies, Cookies, Butterfingers, well, just about anything that contains sugar! I am always hungry right now. He didn't saw anything really bad about my weight gain, but before when he would see me he would say, "Your weight looks good." Today he said, "Your weight is okay." I know the difference in GOOD and OKAY! So, I will limit my sugar intake and hope for the best.
I got to see baby girl on the sonogram again today. I get one every time to monitor the baby's size. Today baby girl really showed us her face, then her femur. The doctor commented on how long the femur looked, and by the way, I am not sure if I am spelling femur right. It sure looks weird. He said the baby looked like she was going to have long legs. So I asked the question that dwells inside me daily, "So, is she going to be big?" He then measured the femur. I am at 27 weeks, and the femur measured the end of 29 weeks. He then looked at me and said, "You are probably going to have a big baby, just going by past history, so stop asking me crazy girl!" Okay, so he didn't really say that at the end, but that is what it felt like. So, a basketball player I am hosting! Stacey said he was sad, he wanted a dainty little girl! I told him, there is nothing about me dainty so he didn't need to get his hopes up! All joking aside, I don't know what I would do with a small baby. I had trouble holding Mindy's twins a few weeks ago because I thought I was going to break them.
Overall, a great report. I did take the Gluclose?Spelling? test today, so I will wait for those results. Thank you God for a healthy pregnancy so far. We will set the c-section date the next visit. YEAH!!
