21 Week Appointment

January 4, 2011

I had my 21 week doctor's appointment today and everything was good.  

My blood pressure was at an all time low which is fine but pretty funny to hear that my top number is only 92. 

AND, I am now officially 1 pound OVER my pre pregnancy weight!  YAY for me!  This is the first time since I have been pregnant that I can say I am plus a pound rather than negative a few...only took me 21 weeks  (I honestly think I lost some muscle mass since Jonathan and I used to work out everyday.  I've gone on like 2 walks since becoming pregnant.  Also, my butt shrunk...not that I had much to lose!)  My doctor has now told me that I need to start trying to gain weight.  In the beginning it was fine that I lost but she says I should try to gain and that I should eat more carbs...hahaha!  Ok, you don't have to tell me twice!  I'm still in the normal range though so that's good. 

Also, she reviewed the anatomy ultrasound from 20 weeks and says everything looks normal which is great to hear! 

We were able to hear Georgia's heartbeat today and she was finally able to measure my baby bump for the first time!

So, all in all it was a great appointment.

Thats great! My blood pressure has been really low too. My doctor told me to eat more salt. So John took it to an extreme. I would ask him for melted cheese on toast and he would bring it to me sprinkled with salt! He put salt on EVERYTHING I ate.

Hearing the hearbeat is such a beautiful moment during pregnancy. I remember holding back tears every time.
