I had my 32 week appt this morning. I met with the 5th doctor that I have seen so far at the practice since mine is out this week. She was very friendly and I liked her a lot - I'm so glad that I've liked almost all of the doctors there since there is no guarantee that mine will be available when the time comes.
Anyway, everything was good with me. BP was 100/60, weight gain was on track, no protein in the urine. All good.
The doctor was trying to feel what position he is in and was having a little trouble distinguishing, but she thinks that he is already head down. His heartbeat popped right up and was nice and strong between 140 and 150. I always love hearing that sound.
Then she measured me and I am only measuring 30 cm - I am almost 33 weeks so that is small. She scheduled me for a growth u/s at my next appt in 2 weeks just to check and make sure everything is growing properly. She said she wasn't overly concerned or she would've had me go get an u/s right then and there.
I'm excited that I'll get to see him again since I haven't had an u/s since I was 21 weeks, but I am also upset that it's necessary. I feel like I'm a bad mom and that maybe me continuing to exercise is causing him not to grow. What if I have been so concerned about gaining weight that I have done him harm?
I was almost in tears as I drove to work from the doctor's office. As if to reassure me that he is ok I got a bunch of kicks from our little man as I was driving. Thank you baby - I love you so much and I promise to do whatever I have to to make sure you are growing and healthy. Mommy loves you.
