Today was my first appointment after the ultrasound. I was so concerned about the tech mentioning that she was small, so that was the first thing I asked. The NP looked over the report and said while her measurements are below average, they all range between 30-40% and they are not concerned about those numbers. I asked if having the single umbilical artery automatically made us high risk, and she said no. I go back at 32 weeks for another ultrasound and if the growth curve isn't pleasing to them, they will schedule me for ultrasounds through the rest of the pregnancy and THAT could potentially make us high risk.

I also asked if having the SUA means I won't be allowed to keep my placenta. The NP wasn't sure, said she would speak to some people on the L&D floor to see what they usually do in those situations, but said she would guess that if everything is okay with baby they should be fine with me keeping it. Squeak's heart rate was 150 and she was moving around a lot. This was also my first appointment where I did not have a UTI! YAY! She gave me an abdominal binder to help with the round ligament pain and the back pain. I used it on the way home and it did help. Hopefully it will encourage little Miss to stay off of whatever nerve it is she sits on that makes my vagina go numb.

Unfortunately, on the walk to the bus stop, I tripped over a garden trim and landed on my knees and then my face. Glasses broke and the lens cut my cheek and I laid there for a few minutes and felt stupid. I shouldn't be allowed out of the house anymore. Next appointment is my glucose test. I don't want to.

Ouch! That sounds like it hurt, A LOT. Now, when you tell everyone why your face looks busted up, they'll just nod knowingly :-P.

I'm glad your appointment went fairly well. Remember, 50% of all children are smaller than average :-). Sounds like your doc is on top of it.

Good to hear that your doctor isn't too concerned about Squeak's growth - if everything is still proportional and lookign good, then hopefully you're just gonna have a petite little one instead of trying to squeeze a watermelon out of your Wahoo!

As for tripping - ouch! I'm laughing though at toasterbell's "nod knowlingly" comment though. A couple years ago DH was reaching across his body to pet Moomoo over his shoulder and she bit him, lol - what wasn't funny was that he jerked his arm back and accidentally hit me in the eye with his elbow (we were snuggling). I went to work the following Monday with an ill-concealed shiner and our HR department actually called me in to talk to me! They totally didn't believe the story, lol - so that was a bit awkward.

Ow! That sounds like quite the fall. I'm glad your doctor is not too concerned about Squeaks growth but will be keeping an eye on it.

I am glad to hear things are going well with your little one. My doctor often brings up the fact that all babies develop at different rates - if your doctor isn't concerned, I wouldn't be either.

That fall sounds like it must have hurt. This past summer I tripped on several occassions while out running, painful and embarassing - I hope your heal up quickly.

DF is mad at me now because during the appointment, I brought up my toe swelling for no reason and joked that he was beating me in my sleep. Now I have this cut and swelling on my face, he's like GREAT they are going to re-think that joke!!

I'm a klutz so I so get where you're coming. I've had a lot of bruises lately and joke that my husband beats me. Everyone knows he's a big teddy bear though.


Glad you're not high risk right now and hopefully the little one will continue to grow normally.

Omg!!! Im sooo sorry you fell!!! That sounds painful!!! Then with the hubby beating you joke they will likely ask if there is abuse at home... Its almost funny because With my first, when they had me medically evaluated like when you first get pregnant, they asked me that twice, then asked me every apt after... like the dr would ask not just the med assistant... and with our second they asked once then the med assistants would ask almost every apt since its routine. Here they dont ask at every apt, but just when they first evaluate you and maybe every other apt or so... but its crazy how much they ask!!! Lol! Im super glad to hear the apt went well though and hope your apt at 32 weeks goes just as smoothly! I also hope your cuts heal fast and that your Df stops "beating" you LOL JK JK.

I'm glad that the doctor isn't concerned about baby's growth That's a big relief!

DS had SUA, so if you ever need first hand reassurance, please feel free to send me a message The one thing my midwife said that they did look for (and 3 years ago, they did do extra u/s right away with SUA, but it has turned out to be more common, so I don't think they do anymore) is restricted growth, but if it's caused by the SUA, it typically doesn't show up until later on (close to 30+weeks). I bet that your baby is just a little peanut and totally perfect in every way!!

Also, even with the SUA, they still let me keep and encapsulate my placenta. There were no issues with that because of it If they try to tell you otherwise, send them my way

And the ONLY only issue DS ever had was when he was 41 weeks, his placenta was having trouble keeping up with him, and they think it may have been in part because of the SUA. However, like I said, he was already a week late at that point. I am sure you won't have ANY issues! The doctor (I had to initially go see a specialist for it) said that the extra testing was really unnecessary and the only time he was concerned about SUA was if it presented with other issues (organ spots, positive or increased risks at certain tests, etc.).
