So because of high BP and GD, I have to go in once a week for what they call a biophysical profiling ultrasound to check my amniotic fluid, baby's growth, heartrate and specific types of movements they want to see and mesure (stretching from the spine, etc.). So because high BP can slow growth and produce less amniotic fluid, while GD tends to do the opposite, I'm lucky in a way because it ends up that I'm still right on track and one seems to even out the other. My blood glucose is good, I started taking an extra shot of insulin at breakfast this morning and my glucose so far today is perfect, so that is more good news. The US went perfectly and the tech said nothing to worry about so far, everything looks great. They saw everything they needed to see this morning and the baby's HR was normal. I also got a great look at the baby's brain, heart, arms, legs, spine, kidneys and face, which is always fun! It had been 10 weeks since we had seen the baby so it was nice to be reminded how beautiful he or she is and how I need to stay strong and positive for this beautiful little person who is growing iside of me. My BP was good too, already down from yesterday when I saw my OB, so hopefully now it will stay that way. The baby weighs approximatly 4 lbs and 3 oz. which she said was right on track. I'm soooooo happy and relieved to get such good news and it was just what I needed to remind me how important it is for me to keep following doctor's orders and relax. I'm feeling much better and ready to do whatever it takes to make sure the baby stays healthy and cooking in there for another 8 weeks!
Thank you Jaydinsmum for my amazing siggy!
