30 weeks

I had my level 2 u/s this week and everything is okay. The baby is measuring at 3 lbs. 10 oz which is too big but within the normal range and I have excess fluid so they are going to keep tabs on me. I passed my 3-hour glucose test but since the baby is so big they are going to send me to a dietician. Dr. said that even though I passed I might still get it yet and this way the baby won't get too big. I asked if they'd take me early if the baby is big and she said they don't like to for birth weight alone. We'll see. I hope (s)he's a little early. I'd like to be done with work!

28 weeks

Not a good week in the baby world. Some people from our church lost their 8 week old baby to SIDS this week. I am not sure I can go to the visitation. I am not sure I can handle it, especially now. Had a bad ultrasound yesterday. Had to have another one becuase during my 22 week one they could not meaure the baby's heard due to his/her positioning. Well again, my stubborn child hindered them from seeing the heart again yesterday. She was able to see all 4 chambers but that's it. The heartbeat was normal -- 145, but they want me to go to a specialist to make sure everthing else heart-related is okay. Also they saw a "potential" skull abnormality that they want checked out. So Andy and I have an appointment at St. V's in Toledo for July 28th. That's an awful long way to wait. It's going to be a difficult 11 days.

Also I failed the initial glucose test so I have to have a 3-hour test on Monday. Fun, Fun.

Wow, all of the sudden I feel huge! As far as I know baby is fine. Kicks a lot down below so I am afraid it might be breach. I need to ask about that at my next appointment. I failed the initial GD test by 10 measely points, so I have to have a 3 hour test on Monday. Hopefully all will be well. I have another ultrasound on Thursday to measure the hear and to see if they can do a 3D/4D ultrasound on me. They are not sure they can due to my weight but we'll see. I am excited to see T-rex again.
