36 Week checkup

Well I got home last night about 9:30 after playing bunco with some friends. I headed to bed about 10:30, which is usually a very active time for the baby. But not last night. I tossed and turned and jiggled my belly and baby wouldn't budge. And as you know that really freaked me out. I didn't sleep well last night at all. My son woke up once in the night and I jumped in bed with him for about 20 minutes then went back to my bed-still baby not moving. Then I woke up about 3am and my back was aching severely. So I went to the recliner-and FINALLY baby moved a few times.

This morning when I got up the baby did move a few times as normal. But I was still a little anxious to get to the doctor to make sure everything was still going well.

I got to the doctors office and weighed in-lost 4 lbs-hahaha. I think it's because I got on the other scale this time and it is more in tune with my home scale. The other scale read 5 lbs heavier than my home scale. I know which one I'll be using from here on out! Anyway, I got back into the room and she checked for baby's HB and it was 147. Which is a bit of a dive from 174 two weeks ago-but still very much in the normal range. So I was relieved.

Anyway just as I predicted he wants me back in two weeks for another sonogram. I was really hoping he'd do the sonogram next week-but alas I have to wait. He obviously doesn't realize how anxious I am to get this baby here!

I would be freaking out too. I'm glad everything turned out ok. If you get worried, don't hestitate to go to the L&D or even emergency. ((HUGS))
