32.5 Week Appointment

We went yesterday for this week's marathon of appointments - BPP, NST and midwife appointment.

The BPP was good.  Bean scored 8/8.  Placenta is still graded as a zero, which means that most of it is still very healthy and functional tissue.  Amniotic fluid level was slightly increased - no big deal at this point.   Bean's size was not measured. 

NST took an hour, but was reactive.  It was better than last week once I got Bean to quit running away from the fetal heart rate monitor.  She had the single best sustained heart rate elevation that I have ever recorded on a NST, Gracie's included.

Midwife appointment was uneventful.  No protein in my urine today, so I must have just been a little under hydrated last week, which I am still trying to figure out.  Blood pressure was good.  I have gained 8 pounds in the last week; I am starting to carry a little fluid in my hands and lower legs, and I think that this probably accounts for most of the 8 pounds.  :-(      If amniotic fluid level is really up a little bit, that might also account for some of that.  The excess fluid during Gracie's pregnancy only lasted a few weeks, so hopefully the same holds true this time.

The greatest news of the week is that I think we might FINALLY be closing in on a real name for Bean.  Exciting stuff.  Once we make the final decision, there will be no disclosure of the name until she make her grand appearance.  Sorry.  :-P 

I go back on Friday this week for a NST.  Otherwise nothing else exciting to report.
