30 week doctor appt.

I had a general appt. with my OB physician today. I gained 5 pounds since last appt. Finally starting to gain some weight! My blood pressure was great at 108/60. Baby's heart rate was fine at 147. My thyroid levels and the blood sugar test to check for diabetes at my last blood draw was all within normal range - no problems. The doctor said it felt like the baby's head was already downward. I asked if at this point if the baby could flip. He said it is not likely, but with a stretched out/veteran uterus, there is a chance.

I am generally feeling good. I am waking up usually 3 times through the night to go pee, but usually can go right back to sleep. It really irritates me though when my last bathroom visit is so close to the alarm going off at 6:30 AM! lol My first born child really screwed up my tailbone with his 32 hour labor, so every pregnancy afterwards, the pressure on my tailbone is very uncomfortable. I have my husband try to massage it and I try to get it to adjust by rolling on it, but seldom find comfort. :( I joke with my husband that the best thing to do would be to put his hand up my butt and yank my tailbone off.....for some reason he does not find that appealing. lol
I have had some acid reflux, have been really tired again, and had some hormonal craziness again. All signs of me being in 3rd trimester and delivery right around the corner! :)


  1. Carla, you look so pretty! I'm so happy for you that this is all working out. Prayers and love that everything continues to go well. Miss all of you beautiful Latimer people very much!
