Update on baby

26 weeks, 3 days

I had an appointment with my OB on Monday for a regular checkup. I learned a few things. :)

For the most part, everything with baby is looking fantastic. She's measuring 2-3 weeks ahead, so my doctor said "No 6lb babies for you!" lol And I passed my GD test much to my surprise! I felt so crappy after drinking the glucose drink, I had thought "great, I'll probably fail right past the 3-hour".... but nope!

The only "wait and see" news I got was that I have a low-lying placenta. They checked the placenta at 20 weeks, and it was low, but my doctor said that 95% of the time, the problem will correct itself and move out of the way later on. I have to go back for another ultrasound at 28 weeks, and they will check then that it has moved up, and if it hasn't, then I will be scheduled in for a c-section.

All in all, it was a short, sweet, and pretty good appointment. :) Oh, and it was quick this time! Less than an hour! (I usually spend 1-2 hours in the waiting room before my 5 minute checkup with the doctor :P)
