30 Weeks!!!

I just got home from my 30 week check-up. First off, I'm starving!!! Since I was gone last week, I didn't go grocery shopping until Tuesday and only bought half the groceries. Guess DH didn't get that memo and now it's Friday morning and we have NO FOOD. I found a banana and a granola bar that I called breakfast but now I'm munching on some 'Nill wafers. So while you read this post, picture my stomach growling...

My appointment was short and sweet as usual. Baby A's heartbeat was 140. I'm measuring 29 at 30 weeks pregnant. At the past appointments, I was measuring right on centimeter vs # of weeks. Last time, I was slightly ahead (29 at 28 weeks) and now I'm 29 at 30 weeks. She told me not to freak out because it could be +- 2 centimeters but, of course, I am! She also said that since it's not the same person measuring each time, that could also result in the difference. I've always had in my mind that I'm going to have a big baby but maybe I'm not, guess we'll find out in about 10 weeks!

Since my last check-up, my hands and feet have gotten more swollen i.e. no more rings. She checked it out and agreed they were swollen. She said it probably looked bad to me but wasn't that bad plus my blood pressure was good.

She gave me a Fetal Movement Count sheet. So I have to count how long it takes to get to 10 kicks each night, preferably at the same time. The same time thing may be difficult since I work some nights (including tonight) and have a fundraiser dinner tomorrow night so we'll probably start on Sunday.

So that's up summary of my 30 week check-up...30 weeks-WOW!!!

YAAAAAY!!!! 30 weeks is awesome....and the kick/movement count doesn't have to be at the same time every day. I like you work nights and not all together. So I just picked a random time and waited. As long as you get that many in a day I think you're good.

So excited for you in this final countdown!!! Keeping you in my thoughts and prayers....

Yeah I'm sure with diff people doing the measurements that it's probably never exactly accurate. And measuring behind by one week isn't a big deal at all. Sounds like everything is normal and healthy - with just 10 more weeks to go! Hooray!

Diff techs often caused diff measurements for me. I was usually 1-2 cm behind and I had a 8#2oz baby 2 eke early. Not sure how much stock I'd put in fundal height determining baby size!
