Quick Update

Had my semi-weekly doctor's appointment today... All went very well, and for that I am sincerely grateful.

There was some sugar in my urine this morning, and the doctor said that it could be caused by something I ate and even if it wasn't, she said it's not that uncommon at this point in pregnancy. She basically reminded me to watch my sugar intake (which I usually do) and not worry about it too much.

I only gained one pound in two weeks so that was good news.

My fundal height is only measuring about one week ahead this time. At first, I found this to be a bit of a relief because if you recall, two weeks ago, she was measuring FOUR weeks ahead. But then I started wondering if that meant she hasn't grown at all in the last two weeks. When I asked about it, my doctor laughed and said, what it means is that the doctor who measured me last time tends to measure bigger and it's not an exact measurement anyway. But, because my fundal height has been consistently big, and she could tell I was concerned, she agreed to send me for an ultrasound to verify just how big Maya really is. My scan is scheduled for Monday June 30th at 2:00pm. I gotta admit, I'm nervous! These nerves never seem to settle no matter how far along we get in this pregnancy.

Also, on palpation today, my doctor seems to think that Maya is breech. Which is fine now, she still has plenty of time to turn. And again, this was just a guess on her part and the scan on Monday will confirm just what my little girl is doing in there exactly. I kinda think she is head-down but what do I know?

All in all, a good appointment. As Dr. R was finishing up with me, she made it a point to say that Maya is doing "great". Music to my ears!

Wish us luck for Monday's scan.
