I am a day behind in posting about how the doctors appointment went and some readers are getting concerned. Everything looked fine at the appointment, Tater Tot’s heart is still beating away and my blood work from the previous month came back 100% normal.
I weighed in at 108, same as last time and the nurse was pleased. She said most women loose weight in the first trimester so it is great that I held at my same weight, now the weight gain will begin. Oh and please don’t suggest that my boob size will quadruple. I know N would love it but if they do I might not be able to stand up straight. 1 cup size is enough growth for me.
The only startling news was that for the last 26 years I have been terribly wrong about my blood type. Turns out I am O negative which means if N has rh positive blood I’ll need to consider the RhoGAM shot and weight the risk factors.
My whole life I thought I was either a or b type blood but now it turns out I have the same blood type as my mom and never knew until now, nice huh?
Oh and I got some more delivery info from my doctor. She said that she would not let me go beyond 40 weeks and we also talked about the required IV and how I would need to be stuck but that I would still be able to move around and not be confined to the bed. Information is coming to us all scattered and incomplete and we are still trying to get a feel for hospital birthing options here. Who knows we may need to fire the doctor at he end if things don’t start looking more promising.
Oh, this morning N snuck out and did all his Christmas shopping for me while I was still asleep. It looks like we are both officially done with the shopping now, thank goodness. N said it was pretty crazy out on the town this morning. Nobody in our town is “recessioning” it seems. Everyone is spending loads and loads of money. Oh and the local stores reported making great profits already this holiday season, I am surprised.
How is the economy looking in your home town are people “recessioning” or fairing well?
