September 20, 2012 30 Week

On Thursday mommy and Saya headed into the Lafayette office and heard the baby's heartbeat and the belly  was measured. The heartbeat was in the 140 range which is still good but mommy's belly measured 2 cm below normal. The doctor wasn't worried a bit and said that growth was still good.

September 13th, 2012 Growth Check

Mommy headed in to Avista to see Lois the tech and got to see baby again after 20 weeks. Baby looks a lot different than before with more definition. The baby was head down already and measuring at 29 weeks and 6 days. So there was nothing to worry about. Everything else looked good too and  the heartbeat measured just right.

28 Week Appt

On our 28th week appt the doctor and PA measured mommy's belly and the growth was a bit smaller than normal at 28 weeks so they decided to do a growth check with ultrasound. Otherwise, everything else was fine.

August 21, 2012 Glucose Test and Labcorp

On Tuesday we somehow got out of the house in time to head out to Labcorp. Mommy drank all the orange drink and then had 30 minutes to spare before we got to lab. Saya and mommy waited till our 1 hour wait was up and then got our blood drawn. So far all the test results were good and passing. This included the CBC, vitamin D and Glucose. Whew!

August 7, 2012 24 Week Appt

Today we went to visit Dr. Spears for our 24 week appt. Baby is doing great, she is measuring just about 24 weeks and has a heartbeat of 156. Mommy is doing well except for the occassional back pains from lifting up too much weight. Now instead of bending down, it's time to start squating. Mommy gained 1 pound from the last visit which is good and steadily growing. Time to also start the glucose testing soon along with all other bloodwork. We'll see how that goes.

The nursery is coming into place. Furniture is all in place and daddy has worked hard to clean the house up.

Mommy is starting to have more and more cravings so today we picked up some nitrate free hot dogs and peaches. Mommy is also getting really sensitive with everything and started nesting.

July 9, 2012 20 Weeks

On Monday July 9th we visited the Ob again for our 20 week appt. We heard the baby's heartbeat and daddy made it just in time. Saya was fast asleep in her stroller after soccer but woke up just in time as well. The doctor made sure all the parts of the baby were ok such as the brain, kidneys and spine. We found out that we will be having a baby girl. The doctor was certain but to us we couldn't tell much of anything from the u/s.

Also we found out that the placenta was anterior so it would be hard to feel the baby kicking. But the flutter that mommy had been feeling the last couple of weeks seems to be the baby. So excited to be half way through the pregnancy and also closer to meeting baby Neima #2.
