Another uneventful pregnancy check up. This time, I didn’t even see my OB. He had gotten called into an emergency surgery, so I saw a Nurse Practitioner in his office instead. Okay by me.
- They took blood to run some tests on my vitamin & mineral levels.
- She listened for the heartbeat – in the 140s, where, so far, all my babies have camped.
- She gave me the delightful gestational diabetes drink for my next appointment. Oh bliss.
- She measured me. I’m measuring small (21 weeks instead of 24 weeks), but that’s very common for me. I am the biggest that I think I’ve ever been (but still have only gained 10 pounds). I don’t know why that is, but whatever. Not really concerned about it.
They did call me back a couple of days after the appointment to let me know that my iron levels are still low, but to keep doing what I’m doing in hopes that they’ll re-bound soon. They’ll check them again.
Side note: we still don’t have a name. Still don’t really have a list of names. No top 3 list. Not even a top 10 list. I’m not freaking out about it yet.
