Yesterday and today were better, kids more calm and the days went better... and now tomorrow's Friday and that's the BEST! :)
Zeus and I had a regular doctor's appointment. He's been able to go to all the doctor appointments with me since December when we got our first ultrasound and saw baby Mia for the firs time ever. This appointment was that of the infamous glucose test, where you have to drink a Dixie cup of sickeningly sweet orange syrup and then wait around an hour and get blood drawn. In the interim we met with the doctor and they listened to Mia's heart which sounded fabulous - yay! She measured my belly and I'm measuring at 30 weeks, even though we're a few days from being 29 weeks. She said that's very common, plus, I've got not only Mia in there, but a 6 inch fibroid as well, so that makes sense. Also, my amniotic fluid level is normal, which is great too! It's something they look at with cleft lip and palate babies because if the baby has trouble swallowing the amniotic fluid, it builds up excess fluid. Since the fluid level is normal, it seems that Mia isn't having any problem with swallowing, which is so good to hear and makes me hopeful that feeding issues will not be as severe as they could have been.
Bring on the third trimester!!! Only about 78 days or 11 more weeks to go until we are officially parents of a squirming, squealing bundle of joy and WE CAN HARDLY WAIT!!! We are now at the point in the pregnancy where we have to start going in to the OB every two weeks. Between the specialist and the regular OB, I already feel like I'm going to a doctor appointment every other day, so it will be interesting to see how things go with added visits! Plus, we are going to be meeting with the CLCPT (Cleft Lip Cleft Palate Team) the week after next to find out, hopefully, all we ever wanted to know and more about Mia's condition and things to expect, etc. Lots and lots to look forward to in the next few months!
