It was quite high by now last time and the perinatologist were very concerned about blood flow back and forth and ER's growth rate. It's so nice to have doctor visits this time and hear how normally everything is progressing; to not have to discuss what they're monitoring with concern. I'm sure that has also helped with blood pressure, a mommy-to-be less stressed out about the developing baby is just better all around.
I now weight more than I have ever, in my entire life - including the end of the first pregnancy. I have ten weeks left to go, yikes! At least the cramping and leg pain has subsided a little bit and so has the ankle and foot swelling, in the past week. I think that now I'll be able to exercise a little bit more and hopefully keep my weight in check. The doctors aren't concerned about my weight gain, it's within normal ranges, but I'd like to keep up my energy and minimize what I have to loose afterward. Plus being active will only continue to help with blood pressure monitoring. I my belly has really popped out since the last belly shot at 26 weeks, I shared and can really feel the extra pounds when I try to sit up.
