First Let Me Say......

I apologize for my absentness as of late. Life seems to be going by at break neck speed right now.

Yesterday was my second Midwives appointment, and I have ANOTHER due date. This seems to be pretty common for me. My official new due date is August 4th, which will put me at 17 weeks 1 day today. Which seems unbelievable to me. It seems like only yesterday I felt like I was going to live on my bathroom floor forever!

Blood Pressure - 100 over 56
Weight - 10 pounds heavier than last time (gulp)

I am measuring 19 weeks (for those who have no idea what I mean, my uterus is 19 weeks along lol). I measured big for both Connor and Sydney as well, so this wasn't a surprise. And we easily found the baby's heart beat. 156 bpm. Berry Good!

Now, my blood pressure is a bit of a conundrum. It can explain why I feel more tired (besides the fact I chase after a 2/12 year old and a 16 month old everyday) and why I have been getting dizzy spells. I just need to be aware that it's happening.

With regards to work, nothing changes so far. I just need to take it easy if I feel tired and I can't lift the heavy benches for clinics anymore (that one I am not so upset about heehee). I have to day though, when I work more than a four hour shift and I go home, my feet and knees are killing me already. I guess it's a good thing that I decided to start my mat leave on July 1st instead of August 1st!

The best part of this appointment? I get the Ultrasound requisition for the Anatomy Ultrasound! Basically, it makes sure that everything looks good and that the baby is ok. And of course, we will be finding out the sex of the baby. Which I already know is a girl LOL!

Once I have an appointment I will let everyone know the outcome! YAY!
