It’s been almost 2 months since I did a pregnancy post. I just had another appointment on Monday, August 11th, so I thought I should take the time to post now.
My 28 week appointment went very well. My urine was negative for glucose and protein. My weight was up by 4 pounds. My blood pressure was 112/72. The baby’s heartrate was 155-160. I had my glucose test as well but haven’t heard the results yet. There was one thing, though, that has thrown a few questions into the mix. I was 27 weeks and 5 days but measuring 33-34 weeks. The midwife mentioned the possibility of twins and decided to schedule the next appointment for just 2 weeks (August 25th) instead of the usual 4 weeks. If I’m still measuring ahead we’ll pursue getting an ultrasound, our first ever with any of our pregnancies. I’d be thrilled beyond measure to have twins but am trying very hard not to get my hopes up. There just really aren’t enough details yet to know for sure. Please keep us in your prayers as we (I) try patiently to wait on the Lord.
I promised my sister that I’d add my 28 week “belly shot”. I’ll add my 24 week picture for comparison.
