35 week appointment


Today I went for the 35 week appointment.  Paige was not really moving yesterday evening (usually when she is most active), so they wanted to do another ultrasound to check for fluid levels and a non-stress test.  The ultrasound went well (plenty of fluid) but little Paige was lazy as always again.  But, the tech did say that she has hair!  Maybe that old wives tale about heartburn and hair is true!

On the non-stress test, she did not move at all the first 15 minutes, so I had to drink a Pepsi and eat some peanut butter and crackers.  After that, she did finally have some movement.  The doctor was pleased with her heart rate during the whole 30 minutes and said her movement looked good.  So that was a relief!

I did lose 3 pounds this week, which I thought seemed bad, but is apparantly totally normal this late in pregnancy!  So, overall, it was a good check-up!  Only 5 more weeks to go!
