15w4d - OB appt update

My appt was actually Friday, but I haven't gotten around to updating yet. Sorry.

Everything went well. My OB does not want to move my due date up though since he prefers to go by the early u/s dating which puts my due date back at July 13. Oh well, guess I don't get to lose that week of pregnancy after all.

Great news is that once I reminded my OB about having already done the 1-hour glucose screening test and passing, he said that I don't have to repeat until 28weeks! Yay!!! I'll probably start checking my fasting blood sugar level at about 20 weeks or so a few times a week to see if it's going up, hoping that it doesn't. The fasting number was always the one I had the hardest time controlling last time.

Baby's heartrate was 140bpm which just reaffirms my belief that it's a boy.

I have another u/s at the perinatologist on the 31st.

Feeling mostly good these days, still a bit tired sometimes, but not nearly as bad as it was with NSWO. My hips are already achey while I'm sleeping so I'm hoping that yoga will help keep that mild for a while longer. I've started feeling this little one moving a bit which is really cool. I didn't feel NSWO until after 20wks due to my anterior placenta and it's so neat to be feeling this one so much earlier.

Good news on the glucose test!

That is very cool you've felt the baby move - I'm very much looking forward to it!

Sounds like all is well! Great great great! I'm just now having that hip pain in the night thing and it's really bad! Hope yours doesn't come in too soon.
