~~~~~~~~~~~~Gained 2 1/2 lbs this time... a tad bit dehydrated (no wonder with the heat we've been having, I start sweating as soon as I step outside!) Baby is growing right on track... Heart beat sounded good, my blood pressure was good (don't know what it was) Doc said everything looked great!
~~~~~~~~~~~~~Pre-Registered at the hospital... Can't believe it's already that time... Just made everything that much more real... Pretty sure it hasn't quite sunk in with SO that he is having another baby... LOL
~~~~~~~~~~8th Dr's appt @ 1:15pm August 10, 2012 [35 weeks]
~~~~~~~~~~~~Gained 5 lbs in two weeks... I'm gonna chalk most of that up to the fact I had just eaten a big lunch. LOL Blood pressure was 130/60 ... Higher than normal, but doc wasn't concerned. Listened to Jentri's heartbeat, sounded wonderful. Measured belly... don't know what it is, but he said "very good" so I'm guessing that's good. Only appt Daddy didn't go to... he was still sore from his vasectomy earlier that morning.
