Yay for a big healthy boy! I'm glad your appt. went so well, and also jealous that you got to see your LO again! Am I the only one who has to wait until 36 weeks?? I've got my glucose screen next week - oh boy oh boy. I have a the glucola already and it just looks like it's going to be gross. Glad you got an explanation for the pressure/pain as well - that makes total sense. I have a feeling my LO is right in the middle - I mostly feel her kicking there, and it often feels like she's sitting right on my bladder!

If you gained 6 lbs in 4 weeks, that not too bad. According to the books you should gain about 1 lb. per week, plus or minus. So you gained 1.5lb per week which isn't too shabby! I seem to gain in fits and starts - there will be hardly anything for a few weeks, then I'll go up about 5 lbs in a month, then nothing! Oh the mysteries...LOL.

Wow, congratulations to such a nice appointment, Tiffany.
So happy for you! Don´t worry about the weight (especially if your OB does not get concerned about that). What matters is that you have a healthy diet and your little boy grows happily. Lovely to know you feel better and ah, so great that time seems to fly for you :-)

Wonderful appointment Tiff and I'm super jealous that you got to see your little one in 4D!

Thanks Jen! Yes, the 4D machine is pretty neat, although LO was moving so much it was hard to get a good picture.

Hi Melissa,


You'll have to let us know how the glucose test is - I don't think I did one with DD? If so, I really don't remember it!


You're right, 6 lbs a month isn't TOO bad, if it was an isolated incident...but I do think that is the minimum for me -so far I've not ever gained less than 6 a month this pregnancy! Silver lining, I guess, is that I'm down 7 lbs from where I was with DD at this stage.

Congrats on a great appointment and lucky you for getting to see you little guy again! I LOVE watching the 4D, although I think it freaked out DH just a little. Yay for you and your little boy!
