I had my monthly appointment today with the doctor. Everything is going good. The doctor said that Ian should be weighing about 2.5 lbs. I’ve gained a total of 12 lbs during the pregancy. That’s not bad, I’m still doing good, but it’s more than I want. In July, the doctor said I should only gain between 10 – 20 for my size and I would like to stay closer to the 10. I need to stay away from the chocolate. :) Ian’s heartrate was about 136, which was a little lower than normal, but still doing good. He hasn’t been moving as much lately as he used to be, but I think that’s because daddy hasn’t been around. Jesse started the new job in Troy, so he’s been gone during the week. Overall, everything is going strong, all the bloodwork I did last week came back fine. Due to the move, this was the last appointment with this doctor and he recommends that I set up my next appointment during the week of Jan. 8th (yes, they are starting to occur more). Needless to say, I have a doctor in mind, but I need to verify some insurance info first. That’s it for now.
Oh yeah, I promised a surprise. If you want to know what the surprise is, click here (FYI – it’s Ian’s first recorded heartbeat).
To date, everything is going good. Although Ian is definitely aware that Jesse isn’t here during the week right now. For those of you who haven’t heard, Jesse was offered a position with Entertainment Publications out in Troy, Michigan; which he started on Dec. 11th. So, during the week, Jesse is staying with PJ and Chris and coming home for the weekends. Ian has definitely missed his father. It seems he kicks more when Jesse is there to cheer him on. ;) I have another appointment on the 20th, so I’ll have more news then. I’ll have to start finding another doctor, so if anyone can recommend one in Rochester Hills, let me know.
That’s it for now. I’ll have more later and maybe a surprise after my next doctor visit.
