Baby is doing well and moving more and more everyday. I love getting to feel him/her kick around in there, but I’m sure I won’t be saying that much longer. It’s probably about 1.8o z and 14 inches. These days I’m spending a lot of time at the doctor. I was supposed to be going every 4 weeks, but lightheadedness and an extreme drop in potassium (compared to my typical, concerning high potassium) has me in and out all the time now. I’m even going to a nephrologist to have my kidney’s checked. The will mean I’ve seen pretty much every speciality at Vanderbilt – endocrinology, cardiology, neurology, nephrology, gastroenterology, and gynecology. There can’t be many more -ologies that I’m missing.
The good thing is I get to see baby more often. The other day they were listening to baby’s heartbeat and it dropped suddenly. They did an emergency ultrasound. Everything was fine (praise God!), and I got to see baby playing around. Baby was sitting folded over like it always is so I couldn’t see if it was a boy or a girl. That means I got to watch and even got more pictures to bring home!
I have another appointment the first week of March and they’ve scheduled another ultrasound so I’ll get to see our baby again! Only 99 days to go until 40 weeks! You know, it almost doesn’t seem real. We are collecting baby stuff, but it just goes right into a box. We haven’t done anything to the nursery because we don’t have one. We are trying to move. We need more space for our growing family. More to come on that!
