27w appointment

I know, some say 27w is the start of the 3T so this will probably be my last post in the 2T folder. Wow, I can hardly believe I can type that!

It was overall good. MFM says I'm measuring well and baby is moving well. The hb was in the 130s. My bp was 100/72. I have gained a total of 10 pounds now from my pre-pg weight, at a rate of a pound a week.

We talked about labor/birth pain management options. He told me that he is fine with pretty much whatever I want, within reason. I'm so glad he is open and supportive.

I told him about my hip pain a week or so ago that brought me to my knees in the shower. He frowned. Uh-oh. Then said he thinks it is more ligament pain and that it is telling him I need to slow down and start to take things easy. He did not say I needed to work less or be on bedrest or anything like that, so that is good I guess. Just pretty much relax when I can and not take on too many things. I had that pain during the time I was tring to get a lot of projects done at home. So maybe I was doing too much at once? DH has taken over cooking and dishes now. I love that man! Also I should be finding out soon if/when I will go back to working 4 days a week. I was working 5 days to cover a leave. I think that should help some.

I completely agree that the 2T flew by so quickly! I didn't think it would, but zoommm!

I have off today from work, but work tomorrow. Most of the things I've been doing today have been from the position of sitting on the floor. My pain seems better. DH didn't go to school until the late morning/ealy afternoon. It was so nice to spend the morning with him. He even did a load of laundry and fixed lunch early so we could eat together. I could get used to this!

Congrats on a good appt Lydia =). I was going by 28w as the 3tri but everyone kept telling me happy 3 tri at 27 and that's what one of my books goes by, so I decided I'd just hop on that train =P

So glad that every thing is going so well for you and that you get to go back to working 4 days instead of 5.

Thank you, ladies. Yes, it does seem like we were just joining PAL. It simply amazes me.

I have had some more of the pain, but it is less intense and happens once to twice a day. I was able to come home early from work yesterday and had off today so I think that helped. I will have off this Friday so that will be nice, but am not looking forward to Mon-Thur. One day at a time, right?
