29? Weeks (Who the heck knows!?)

Today's 7:30AM ultrasound (that's what I get for having to make appointments only 2 weeks in advance) showed only good things!  Hurrah!

  • Fluid levels are within normal range
  • Placenta is 2mm (2!) from being completely outside the 2 centimeter area of concern around the cervix
  • Baby is growing appropriately (and as of this morning had tucked herself snugly head down)
Also did the glucose test this morning. Pretty sure those results will come back okay as well, but eh. I don't recall it making me quite so tired the last time, but perhaps that exhaustion was also related to my getting up an hour earlier than usual in order to leave the house by the time I'm usually crawling out of bed.

Going back again in two more weeks for yet another check. I'm hoping at that appointment that the pelvic rest orders will be lifted.

Overall I feel okay. Too much salt and my left foot & ankle start to swell, sitting down and getting back up can be uncomfortable in the nether regions, not to mention that baby finds it amusing to kick me hard enough with her pointy little heels to make me gasp, and I swear I'm bigger already than I ever got with LO.

Which reminds me, I pulled out a light jacket I'd gotten when pregnant with LO (french terry) and it's tight across my belly. How am I going to stay comfortable in the cooler weather of fall if nothing fits across there?!


  1. Seven weeks until full term? Wow...
    As for clothes, try ebay, maybe you can find something cheap but decent to keep you warm these last weeks.
    Good to hear you're doing well.

  2. For some reason" I feel compelled to give my two cents whenever I want to comment, as if that was the entire reason for me to comment. Idiotic.
    The main thing is that I am very happy to hear you're doing well and that your main issue is finding appropriate clothes. That is one of the best problems to have, in the end. :-)

  3. Glad to hear that everything is going well (minus the aches and pains, of course). She'll be here before you know it :)
