28 Week OB Appointment

Yesterday we went in for our 28 week OB appointment. We had to wait for over an hour, so that part sucked!! It normally is not that bad. Anyhow, according to their scale I gained 10 lbs in 4 weeks! But Dr.Gass said that's normal for most people during those weeks because the baby doubles in size. He said I prob won't gain much more now, so we will see about that! Ha!

Griffin's heartbeat was 160 and sounded good. When the nurse put the Doppler on my belly he immediantly kicked her and she went "woe!" ha! Yesterday he was super active all day and it was way fun! Everytime I would touch my belly somewhere he would come to that spot and push or kick or roll. It was like a game of tag! Ha! He did it for Mr.Pate too! And even McKenna when she came over last night.

I am measuring 30 weeks, which just confirms I have seriously had a growth spurt. All else looks good. My blood pressure is still good at 102/62.

We took our first draft of our birth plan to Dr.Gass and talked through it yesterday. I felt really good about it overall. There are some things on there we will probably change some, but I'll do a whole post on that later! Point being, it made us like Dr.Gass even more. He is very understanding and I really do trust him.

The only bad news is that he may be on vacation when Griffin decides to come!! Major bummer. It isn't set in stone yet, but he will prob be gone July 5-11th maybe. And I do not want to be induced unless absolutely necessary. So we will see what happens I suppose. One of the realities of having a baby in the summer.

We are now going to the OB every 2 weeks!! Crazy! That means we are getting close people!!

  1. I can't believe that you are so far along! It is insane, and I must say that you may be the cutest pregnant lady I've ever seen! Can't wait to meet that sweet guy and keep him so you can rest!

  2. I cant believe I am that far either Morgan!! It is flying by!!

    And you guys really need to call us and let us watch your little one so you can rest. I need practice! : )

  3. The every two weeks appointments make it fly by. I remember that part of pregnancy going quickly. However; be prepared for it to DRAG by when you are going weekly. I think it was because I was SO ready at that point.

    Definitely exciting!
