Im 29 weeks and 4 days today and had my midwife appointment. I went in and had to pee so bad! I normally forget about my appointment and go before i leave the house but this time I remembered and held it. So I checked my protein and weight. I went in fully expecting to have gained weight but lost another 4lbs! I have not gained a single pound this pregnancy. I'm not bragging, I've been working to lose it because I am overweight to begin with. But we've had a very stressful May and I figured my stress eating would have made me gain weight but it didn't.

My BP was great, 118/70. My midwife was surprise because she knows all that we have been going through but she was happy that it was good.

His heartbeat was 142bpm and he is head down, back up! I want him to stay that way haha. But him staying head down is good.

I met a (studying to be) physicians assistant who is up here being a student to my midwife. To gain experiences with births and such. I'm glad she'll get a good idea of home births too. She'll be attending our birth as well. Fine by me haha. I like it small but we had 3 people there (2 midwives and 1 student) with my son Dane and that was fine with me.

Everything is good. I am beyond happy that everything is good. Knowing that with all the stress I have been under I didn't end up with pre-term labor. I was honestly very afraid of it happening. My BP has been raised so many times.

All is well

I forgot to add that I am measuring 31 weeks instead of almost 30. No worries but I thought it was funny because of all the dating stuff the u/s tech said when iw as bleeding at 10 weeks.
