4th OB Appointment
Mon, 08-06-2012 - 2:48pm

I had my 4th OB appointment today at 18 weeks 4 days. Routine pee in a cup & check weight. I'm up 6lbs from pre-pregnancy weight. Blood pressure was 122/80. My doctor said I'm right on target with weight gain and she gave me a 30-35lb weight gain range.... hopefully it's more like 25-30. I also had tests done for Down Syndrome and Spina Bifida ( blood test). If I don't hear anything within the next week than everything's normal.

I also scheduled the gender ultrasound for next Tuesday, August 14- two days shy of 20 weeks. She said if they couldn't see what they needed to see at that point I may have to come back, which I am totally okay with because it just gives me another opportunity to see the baby- yay!
