Everything is still looking good. My anatomy scan came back normal - I guess the technician actually moved my due date back a day, but my mw said she would leave it where it was because it's only a day and she feels that the earlier ultrasounds are more accurate for dating purposes than the mid to late ones are anyway. My uterus is measuring where it ought to be too, so no real concerns there.
My BP was 108/62 (my mw was laughing because that was the exact number I pulled last time too) and the baby's HB sounded great. She still likes to hang out on my right side (I think she's been there every time we've used the Doppler). I'm officially up 6 lbs from my pre-pregnancy weight, but I think I actually lost weight early in the first trimester and then slowly gained it back so my total weight gain might be a couple pounds more. In any case, I'm gaining slowly at this point (today was the biggest jump and it was 3 lbs) which is good for my body type and where I was pre-pregnancy.
I'm going back around 26w to help me get back on schedule, and after that I'll come back at 28w for the glucose test.
I found out today that my mw has officially hired a new mw to replace the one who's leaving for her own pregnancy in another month or so. She had nothing but good things to say about her and she said that I'll likely be meeting her over the next several appointments, since I guess the birth center has an orientation process for new mw's where they sort of shadow the current mw's for awhile before taking on their own mamas. She may be off of orientation by the time I deliver, but my mw said that if I do happen to go early I may end up having both of them there. I'm looking forward to meeting her.
Thank you to Jaidynsmum for our awesome banner and my fabulous siggie!
yay for a great apt! i'm glad you're getting to meet new mw soon - since you really like your current i'm sure she wouldn't pick anyone who wasn't also really good. And i'm dreading that awful GD test...that drink is awful, horrible lol I know some don't mind it but I don't like sugary drinks at all so that thing is the worst from my perspective. I think I take mine at 26wks so it's coming up soon...
