28 Week Dr Appointment

Weight Gain This Month: 3 lbs
Total so Far: 24 lbs
Belly Measurement: 29-30 cm
Brudder's Heart Rate: 130's

Last Friday Dr Austman called to check on me.  After our conversation she pry wished she wouldn't have even called!  I've said several times over the last few months that I think this child is trying to kill me.  I've had more health issues since I've been pregnant than I think I've ever had in my life.  He is either going to come out an angel for all that he's put me through or be a complete hellion! 

I decided last week to give up on all medications (for my migraines) and just suck it up.  This poor baby has been through enough medications while I've been pregnant.  I give up.  The migraines have been worse - 3 last week.  Then I had some double vision last weekend that literally had me on the floor begging Asher to go find a phone - I was totally freaked out.  Add that to the "flu-like" symptoms I had this past weekend along with a nice eye infection and I'm doing just great.

I also had my glucose screening yesterday - yum!  Dr Austman also told me that we need to pick a date by the end of April for a C-Section that is within a week of my due date either way.  This is just a date that says if I hadn't had him naturally by then that we'll take him.  I will not be induced so she wants to have a date nailed down in case Brudder decides he doesn't wanna come out.  She is going on vacation the end of May so I need to have this lil bugger before then!  She also confirmed that they did not see the band in my 20 week ultrasound!  So happy that the band issue is completely behind us.  I go back in 4 weeks then we are down to every 2 weeks!  Time is flying by!

I read about your migranes and it reminded me of this family: http://joeringle.blogspot.com/2012/01/new-chapter.html It's such a sad and scary story! Make sure you are healthy!

Sorry you are feeling so rotten! Thinking of you often and hoping the rest of the pregnancy goes smoothly.
