My 33 weeks doctor appointmnet

I have my doctor appointment today, I am 32 weeks 6 days as of today. It went ok, no ultrasound, which I am not too happy about. My belly measures 43 weeks !!!!!!!! How bigger can it get?? Chandler's heart bit is 150-155, which is good. My blood pressure is 100 to 60. So it looks like he is going to stay with me for awhile! :) unless my water brakes and than they said to be ready for a mess because of all fluid I got. i actually gained only 3 points for last 2 weeks, which I am very proud of. I guess drinking a lot of water and swimming really helps! I would recommend it everyone who has fluid excess like I do. (more trips to the restroom lol:) They said if I will have hard time of breathing , they can take some fluid out, but it will help for 2-3 days, so waht is the point..

My hospice counselor and genetic counselor were with me during my appointment today, so i am very grateful for that. Plus I met the Director of maternal medicine and asked her a lot of questions about the delivery and what I should do and where to call. She was very nice too.

I wish I could see my little Chandler swimming in my belly today, but I guess insurance company has its own rules .


  1. I am praying for your family.


  2. Stay strong, Lena. We're still praying for you. If you want to get an ultrasound, you can do a self pay. That's how we did it with Michael. It was about $150.00. You could even go get a 4D where the sonogram pictures look like baby pictures. Very cool. I wish we would have done that. Anyways, I'm glad you're drinking a lot of water. I think that's what helped me not get so big. The water kept everything flushed out and prevented me from swelling up like a balloon. Yes, it does make you go potty more than usual, but it's better than being so uncomfortable from the edema. Tell Baby Chandler 'Aunt B' in Texas loves him so much and prays for him everyday!!!

    Much Love,
