Alright, I am a little behind here, so lets catch you up on how the little Snowman is doing!
The last time you heard about the little guy was our last ultrasound at week 20. Well, we’ve had 2 appointments since that one.
At week 21 his heartrate was a nice steady beat of 142 and the doctor had no worries. He is growing at the rate he should and was even nice and cooperated with the doctor, ha! Now for this visit I found out something interesting. They don’t start scheduling eviction dates until around week 32 or so. Um, WTH! I think by that time Snowman just like Baby J will be saying “get me the heck out of here!” So, sadly no eviction date set yet, boo hiss!
Now on to week 25 which was our appointment yesterday.
All day long little Snowman was *active* and did not stop moving from the moment he figured I was awake! *groans* He was moving so much that one of my classmates asked me if I was ok when she notice me wince and hold my stomach a few times. This little guy likes to kick, push and roll around my belly button and it feels awfully weird. I keep telling him that he keeps it up he’ll make me puke, but of course he doesn’t listen to me. Sighs.
So, onto the doctors who were extremely busy. My appointment was suppose to be at 1:30 but I wasn’t seen until sometime after 2, whew!
This week his heartrate was much much slower at 130. To me that is very concerning because that’s a big drop from any of the other visits. The doctor wasn’t concerned and was just thinking that maybe he was finally having a nap after being active all day and I want to believe that as well. However, i’m seriously concerned that the stress that happened the last week with people we tried to help and others may have contributed. Jerry was also a bit worried when I told him the heartrate.
Other than that Snowman is doing well and still growing as he should. So I will try not to worry and see what happens when I go back in 2 weeks.
Speaking of 2 weeks at our next appointment. It’s prego sugar test time! And guess what? I’m stuck with, that, damn, annoying, orange, drink, again!
What is up with every pregnancy, every doctor, no matter where I live has that damned annoying nasty orange drink? I mean seriusly there is another flavor out there! It’s a conspiracy I swear!
One good thing is this time I don’t have to starve all day before taking the test. That’s a good thing because I’d be in some serious trouble. Snowman absolutely refuses to give me a warning when he says time to eat. When he says feed me, he means feed me and right now! So, I just need to make sure that I eat something before my doctors appointment because I can’t eat during the test and it can take up to a hour or maybe more.
So, until next time the currently rolling streching Snowman and I say have a great night!
