Fridays Apt


Don't worry about anything; instead pray about everything. Philippians 4:6
I keep trying to keep this verse in my head, but it sure is heard.
Through out this pregnancy I have always felt BIG, much bigger then my last two pregnancies, I have kept saying to myself it is just because it is my third baby. Each time at the Dr. I have been measuring a little bit bigger but only by one or two weeks nothing to really worry about. On Monday I had an Ultrasound to see how big the baby was due to measuring a little big each time. Baby looked great he was measuring about 34 weeks 3 days, I was technically 32 weeks 2 days so a little big but nothing to be concerned about. The ultra sound tech kept saying how wonderful everything looked.
Move ahead to Friday at my Dr. apt. I get there about 1:15 for my 1:30 apt. thinking maybe if I get here a little early I can be seen a little early and we can get on the road to head to mom and dads. Not the case, they pass by me. After a girl checks in saying that her apt is at 2:15 and she gets called back before me I go ask the desk, they then get me right in.
Normal procedure pee in a cup, get weighed check babys heart rate and my Blood pressure, everything looks great! Then she goes to measure my fundal height, she measures it once, measures it twice, and then measures it for a third time... Then she asks you are 32 weeks right. I say yes. I say why, she says well I have you measuring at 40 weeks. WOW 40 weeks... That means between Monday and Friday the little man grew 7 weeks worth. The Dr. then comes in and double checks the measurement and he says its measuring 40 weeks but he can push it back to 37 whatever that means. He then begins to go over the Ultra sound and discovers that my amniotic fluid is elevated. Not too much but still enough to be concerned about. One cause of this could be gestestational Diabetes, I passed my one hour Glucose test with Flying colors, I'm not exactly sure what the numbers were but they were great. So to help rule that out I go Tuesday to take the 3 hour test, just to make sure that isn't it. They will also run some extra tests on the blood to check things out. I then will go back to the Dr. Every Friday for a Non Stress test and more measurements to see whats going on and for another ultra sound on the 1st of November.
I have found Google to be my enemy. So now I am just trying to worry about nothing and pray about everything. But man it sure is hard.

Ugh! I'm sorry! I am certain there is nothing to fret, but I can completely understand the anxiety. DO NOT GOOGLE. I repeat. DO NOT GOOGLE. lol Elevated fluid levels aren't rare in a third pregnancy (that's what I was told) and it may just mean you'll have to be induced! I'll be praying for you and Baby Adam Jr. Everything will be fine!
