It’s been a while since I updated about this pregnancy. I’m not even sure I managed a picture at 32 weeks. Anyway, I’m at 34 weeks now and had my first visit with my new OB today! I’ve gained about 35 lbs now, which surprises me since I had gained about 34 before we left Colorado. Apparently moving stress + lots and lots of stair climbing = no weight gain. I’m still wearing my wedding ring too, which I’ve never done this long. Usually I can manage about the first trimester and then my fingers get too fat. (Probably has something to do with the fact that the rings were getting too big before I got pregnant.)
So, my new OB. A friend of a friend recommended some doctors that do VBACs in the Kansas City area. As soon as we knew where we’d be living I called the one closest to us. Except he was leaving that practice to open his own (actually with 5 doctors from the original practice I learned today) and that would be opening on January 1st and his old practice didn’t have new contact information when I called. Once we got here I tracked him down and scheduled an appointment. I’m glad I did, because he seems like a great doctor. (I’ve heard good things since we’ve been here too.) He said having another VBAC should be no problem at all, especially since I’ve already had 2. All the doctors in the practice do VBACs, but he also said he prefers to deliver all his patients. He said baby is definitely head down, so that’s good. Baby’s heart rate was about 155. My blood pressure was a little high for me today, 130/80 and I’m usually at about 110/75. I blame having to take all 3 kids to the appointment. I think that’s about it. Here’s how I look these days:
33 & 34 weeks. Getting close!
