Just got back a little while ago from my 20 week checkup. Doc found the baby's heartbeat right away this time and said it was in the 140's which is "right where he wants it". He measured my belly this time, measuring well over my belly button. How he can find anything under all my fluff is beyond me...lol.

The nurse said I've only gained 2 pounds since my last visit, which seems a little low to me, especially since i was wearing jeans this time. I think their scale is a little low, but I'm happy! I started off at 168 which is slightly overweight for someone who is 5'8 so I'm trying to not gain too much. Nurse said I'm doing great so far.

I was having some slight swelling again, and doc didn't seem very concerned at all. He did warn me that at my 28 week checkup they would do the glucose test and "drain me again". I wish I'd warned him how much I HATE having my blood taken, I faint, so that he would have waited to tell me so I didn't have to stress for 2 months. I tried to tell him I've done all this before and don't think I need all these test. He said "yes but this is the first time you've had THIS pregnancy". Oh well, I tried to get out of it...

Also I have a killer sinus cold and he gave me some benadryl, sudafed, aceto...tylenol, and some cepacol. Gotta love the military docs, they just load you up and everything is free. I took a sudafed when I got home and am feeling better already.

Next visit is Friday for my offical ultrasound!

Can you opt out of the glucose testing if you've never had any issues before in your other pregnancies? Can you just sign a waiver?

glad the appointment went well, sorry they are being sticklers about the glucose test... I'm just waiting for mine to tell me I still have to take it at 28wks even though I've already taken the one hour and three hour this pregnancy, I'm going to flat out refuse another one since I passed the three hour with perfect numbers and barely failed the 1 hour... we'll see how that goes LOL
