Baby Update!

Today was my monthly visit to the OB's office!  I was quite worried that since I've been eating everything in sight, my weight gain would be astronomical.  But I needn't have worried.  I only gained 1 pound!  Officially 7 pounds over my pre-pregnancy weight.  I can live with that, especially after the 5 pound gain last month.

Baby boy's heartbeat was 153 bpm.  It was a different nurse than I usually have today, but she was really nice and told me it was a very strong heartbeat!

My stomach gained 4 inches again.  Up to 25.  Seems strange to gain that much in size, but only a pound in weight.  Not that I'm complaining!!

Thankfully my blood pressure was back down around where it usually is. 

I asked my doctor about my INSANE heartburn/acid reflux.  Honestly, it has been so bad lately.  Almost unbearable at times, and it wakes me up at night.  Apparently she had told me back at the beginning I could take Pepcid AC...but I forgot.  I've just been treating with Tums.  So today I'm headed out for some Pepcid!  She said I can even take it twice a day if necessary.  She also told me it'll only get worse from here on out!  Oh well, if that's my only complaint I think I'm doing pretty well.  No swelling at all, which I'm grateful for!

Okay, time for lunch out with John.  We actually have a few hours to ourselves today!

Sounds like everything is going great...aside from the reflux. Get that Pepcid! :)

Yay! Glad everything is going well! And I'm so jealous you've only gained 7lbs...we'll just say I've gained significantly more than that, mostly in the first 20 weeks!

If I had been able to eat anything in the first 20 weeks I'm sure I'd be waaaay higher at this point!
