34 week OB appt

Ok well today took a bit for the appt, but that was expected with all the issues I have been having these past several days. I got checked and all the contractions are doing NOTHING to my cervix, so its still closed at this time.

He measured Hayden and he is 5+ pounds and is once again Breech!!! We talked about c-sections since I have been having the contractions almost non stop and decided that it will be more decided once I get closer to that 37 week mark, right now there is plenty of fluid for him to move in and flip around again. If the c-section is done, no one will be able to see him born ecept the Doc as no one is allowed in the room since I will be put fully under since I cant have a epidural done.

I was on the stress test for 45 minutes and the doc noted that i had quite a few contractions during that time (10ish) so instead of having me come every 2 weks, I am to come in every week from now on. He is also doing this ebcasue my blood pressure was high and that was the casue of the dizzyness have been having the last several days too.

I also had the GB strep test done incase Hayden decided to come earler then 37 weeks.

Happy Birthday LEXI

Today is our baby girl's 1st birthday!!!

We had her 12 months well baby visit today too at the base a little bit ago and it seemed to go ok. She has actually gone down on the chart for her weight and if hovering on the last line of the growth chart and the doc wants to keep an eye on her weight to make sure she does not go below it and end up off the curve.
The doc put Lexi on a HIGH fat diet to see if that helps he gain weight between now and her 15 months check up. She will require Lexi to come in every 3 months to be checked until she is 2 years old.

Tonight we will have a cake for her that is just her size and then we also have the big cake with her name on it for all of us to eat. We will make sure to take pictures, hopefully the camera will behave for me to do this on the digital to post on here later.

32 week OB appt.

Today I had my appt and it went good. Got antibotics for this crap that I have had for some time, I hope it rids me of it soon!!

Hayden is FINALLY head down, but has his face tilted up as though he is looking at the opening to see how he will fit!! :) So that is why we do not have a pretty picture of his face today.

I m measuring a little big, but we knew he was on the larger side from the last visit when he was measured. I did not gain weight, Instead I lost 4 pounds, this brings my total weight gain for this whole 32 weeks to 1 pound - WOW I know amazing, Dr. Chartrand is not worried as Hayden is growing just fine, just means I will be smaller after I give birth!!!

I go back in 2 weeks to see the doctor again!

31 weeks

W just hit the 31 week mark nd so far everything is going pretty good baby wise. I have been sick for the last 3 weeks and tomorrow we have an OB appt and I will see if anything can be done to get me better. Right now I am not sleeping at night because I cough all night long no matter what I take.

Hayden is a very active little boy and loves to make it very hard to do anything due to his ability to get into some very uncomfortable positions. I just hope this means that he will turn head down soon.
