As mentioned in a previous post, I had my 25 week pregnancy check up yesterday. I brought Paige with and Alex met us there on his way home from work. It worked out great because I was about ready to fall asleep as it was and at least now he could keep an eye on her and play "Dress Chica the Chicken" on my iPhone with her - I was growing irritated with it.
The nurse forgot to weigh me, and I thought it was a blessing in disguise but realized her mistake and took me back to the scale. Low and behold I had actually gained 2 lbs since the last appointment! It's a miracle! I guess all the boxes of Shells & Cheese and Big Macs are finally paying off. Though I must not be gaining fast enough because my doctor slid over on her chair to Paige, who was quite happy with her Chicken Game, and asked her if she could make sure her and I eat ice cream every single day together.
Paige looked up and said very calmly "I don't think that I can do that"
The Doctor was a little shocked, what 4 year old doesn't want ice cream every day? LOL, she asked her why and Paige retorted "Because I might get sick"
We all cracked up, and the doctor said "Okay then well make sure mommy has some every day and maybe you can share her's then you won't get sick, ok?" and Paige just looked at her and smiled and said "Ok" almost as if to be humoring her.
Aside from all the humor in the appointment, things are looking good with the baby. I'm still a little small to be measuring my tummy (fundal size) but they did for the sake of the medical student that was with my doc. "And this is what a below average 6 month pregnant womans stomach looks like" I could hear her thinking it....lol.
Ayla had the hiccups and her heart rate was 139. Good and strong and they found it right away. She's been moving up a storm in there, and I have a strong feeling that she's going to be a mover when she's born too. God help us! :0) Our next appointment is in 4 weeks, and we'll have that ultra sound to check out the placenta privia and find out of I need a c-section or not. Let's hope not!!
