Baby Update

Well my appointment went very well today!(sorry started writing this yesterday but just now finished it) What a refreshing feeling having a better outcome. I got to the dr. office and was so nervous I thought I was going throw up.

The dr. was so nice. He's the one who delivered my son. I thought my heart would jump out of my chest because of my nerves. Hubby said he could see my hear beating through my stomach! The dr. joked that he wouldn't be able to tell the difference between heart beats since mine was super fast! Finally he found the baby's heart beat! It sounded significantly different then mine. He started laughing because as soon as we heard the baby's heart beat mine went immediately down really low to normal range! Dr. Wilson joked that it must be a girl because the heart rate was 158. I just want a healthy baby either way!

So the appointment went very well. He said everything is looking good and the baby is doing well. He seems to think any risk of another molar pregnancy is gone. He said the risk of a second one in the first place was remarkably low. But you just never know. I've learned enough with watching friends and family members with health issues plus myself and noticed that our bodies don't always react the way doctors would think. Which is why I'm so thankful that God is in control of all things.

After some routine ob blood work he sent me home with a kit to do a 24 hour base line urine collection. Each pregnancy is different so he wants me to do a 24 hour urine to determine my protein baseline so if preeclampsia attempts to make an appearance later on we have a test to look back on of my levels. Now we just wait and stay healthy exercising and etc. Hopefully if preeclampsia does show up we can keep it at bay for a long while at least until this baby will have a longer cook time then 29 weeks.

I'm just so so thankful that this appointment went well and that we both got to hear this little one's heart beat! Thank you all for your prayers and thoughts about yesterday! It means so much to me and us! I will keep you updated!
