35 Weeks

Yesterday marked 35 weeks of pregnancy.  It was a pretty calm week at the office, which was much appreciated since Spot found another way to cause problems. For some unknown reason, my blood pressure was high at last Friday’s NST (Non-Stress Test). Spot looked fine, of course, but the increase in blood pressure meant that Read More …

34 Weeks

Spot has been cooking for 34 weeks now. And with plans to take her early, we are on the final countdown, looking at weeks instead of months.  It’s making me feel a bit panic-y. Thankfully we had the baby shower last weekend.  That gives me a couple more weeks to figure out what we still Read More …

33 Weeks

We’re at 33 weeks! That means that we only have 3 more weeks to full-term!  It’s been a bit of a busy week for Spot.  We had Baptism class last Thursday night, a non-stress test at our regular OB on Friday, and Tuesday morning we had another anatomy scan.  And since we hadn’t had one Read More …

31 Weeks

I’m 31 weeks along now. Yea for being another week closer to meeting the still unnamed Spot!  You wouldn’t think there would bet much in the way of health news this week, as I’ve actually managed to not have an appointment with the doctor since my last update. But, somehow there is. I am randomly Read More …

26 Weeks

Did you know that 26 weeks is an important mark for viability of a baby?  At 26 weeks, if something goes wrong in the pregnancy, baby’s survival rate is 90%.  And I’m 26 weeks pregnant now, which is super awesome considering all the scares the doctors have given us about Spot’s size.  Of course, she Read More …

24 Weeks – That’s 6 Months, People!

First, the important stuff — I have super good news to report about all the bloodwork I had to have done last week.  It came back negative for the infectious diseases and genetic abnormalities they were testing for!  Right now that means we get to move on with the thought that Spot is just a Read More …

23 Weeks

This week was our first visit to Perinatology (or the high-risk obstetrician).  It was a long appointment – almost 4 whole hours, most of which was spent on doing ultrasound scans of Spot.   Her anatomy all still looks good, but unfortunately, you can’t use an ultrasound to determine if she is small just because Read More …

22 Weeks

We’re at 22 weeks and I’m finally starting to actually look like a pregnant person.  Of course, along with looking pregnant, my lower abdomen is sore as things start to stretch.  That has been a bit annoying, but considering the problems I hear about other people having, I really shouldn’t complain. What I can’t live Read More …
