Well, had another doctor’s appointment today. The exciting part of the day was that Jace woke up with the stomach flu. Kinda throws a cramp into everything when one of the kids is sick.
But, I made it to my appointment unscathed. They did the normal stuff… urine test, iron test (ouch!), blood pressure, weight….. everything looks good. I still haven’t gained any weight at all, and I think I can thank not having an appetite for that!
I mentioned to the doc about the horrible pressure in the pelvic area, and the awful back pain. She welcomed me to my fifth pregnancy! 😉 She said that because all of the tendons are so stretched out, it causes that pressure a pain in the pelvic/lower back area.
When she went to listen to the heartbeat, she discovered that my uterus is growing just fine, it’s just really low, causing baby to be very low. This also accounts for a lot of the pain. The heartbeat wasn’t too hard to find, and it was nice and strong. It stayed between 151 – 162.
I go back in 4 weeks and then we’ll set up *the* ultrasound and the meeting with the high risk OB.
Gene and I are planning on using some of our Stimulus Payment on a 3D/4D ultrasound, and hope to have that done in the next few weeks. (You have to be 16 weeks along.) I’ll let you know as soon as we have it scheduled!
