22/23 week midwife appt~
We had our 3rd prenatal appointment today with the midwife. Since I'll be 23 weeks Friday she's just counting that I am 23 weeks to make it a bit easier for calculations

My fundus height was 24cm (measuring a week bigger but baby is measuring 5 days smaller than my estimated due date from the last ultrasound last week)His heartbeat sounds good. Our midwife can't believe how active he is! All we heard at first was him moving around like crazy!

Found out my blood type, which is O -, which means pending Simon's blood type I may need the rhogam injection after birth. She doesn't like giving the rhogam injection at 28 weeks, but it was our choice so we decided to waive the 28 week injection and have Simon's blood tested today. We'll find out his blood type next appointment. She thinks he'll be a positive but we'll find out! (I am actually hoping that he is a negative too, so that I won't need the rhogam shot after birth, I hear they are painful)

At my next appointment on October 8 at 9am, I'll be almost 27 weeks, I am doing the GD testing. They don't like the glucoa test so their test is to fast that night/morning for the a basic blood sugar test. Thankfully, I don't have to drink the glucoa! yay! If my blood sugar looks good then no more testing needed, if it's elevated I think I'll have to do the glucoa test

I gained about 5 pounds in the last month, which is making up for the previous month of only gaining 0.3 pounds. So I have gained 10 pounds in 23 weeks, not too bad!

So that's my appointment for this month in a nut shell!

Sounds like it went well! GL with the GD testing, I opted out. Haven't had it any of the other seven times, not doing it this time.

Glad you had a good appointment! I have heard that you dont have to get the Rhogram shot at 28 weeks. You can wait till the baby is born up to 72 hours after birth. I'm not sure how accurate this is. I don't need the shot. Good luck with everything

They only start giving the Rhogam shot during pregnancy in the last couple years. Other wise its always been post baby (must be in the first 24 hrs though). As far as being a painful shots-the medicine doesn't hurt its usually the nurse that makes or breaks it LOL. So IF you need it I hope you get a good shot giver nurse!
Glad you had a good appointment.
