I have totally failed the whole NaBloPoMo thing but whatever. Also I’m a couple of days late on this post too but hey, it has a picture! (that makes it all better, right??)
How Far Along? 17 weeks, 23 weeks until due date, 7 weeks to viability
How big is baby? According to THE baby book, baby is about 5 in & 5 oz.
Weight gained? 14 lbs (I had my OB appt today so I didn’t have a choice in the matter)
Movement? Yes. I’m confident with saying that I have been feeling movement although nothing is on a consistent basis yet.
Feeling? Same as last week.
Health updates? I had my OB appointment today and everything is fine. Baby’s heart rate was 138, so right where it should be. No news is good news right?
I did get pretty devastating news today though. My OB is leaving the practice. I’m still stunned. I love my OB. I cried most of this morning. Her last day in going to be the last part of January so I’m either going to be changing my OB in the 3 trimester or changing hospitals all together to go wherever she ends up. I have no idea what I want to do yet. I know how this hospital works. I know what to expect and any wherever she ends up is going to be significantly farther away than she is now. That is not something that is really convenient when there is an emergency. She knows me and my history though. I know that I can trust her as she was my OB with Parker and also delivered him. I don’t want to have to make this choice. She couldn’t even tell me where she was going to go because it is not official yet and she is only telling a few of her ladies as the information isn’t “public” yet. No matter what choice I make it is going to suck because either way, switching OB’s or hospitals is not ideal in the 3rd trimester. ::headdesk::
I did finally take a belly picture though. I found that it is a good use of my tripod that has so far only been collecting dust.
