Ah, so the bloodwork doesn't end with getting pregnant! Going back to the lab to get poked was like a flashback to all my IVF cycles, but this time, not so anxiety driven. I had my 27 week glucose and complete bloodwork tested and everything came back a-ok! No anemia, no GD, no preeclampsia. I didn't expect any surprises, but you never know. So, it was a relief to get the clean bill of health.
Our little eggy seems to be doing pretty good. I feel him moving and kicking on a fairly regular basis. My belly has definitely grown and seems to be growing a bit each day. As for weight, I've gained a little less than 20 pounds and my OB seems to be ok with that.
We spent the weekend painting the nursery and putting together furniture. I wanted to get this done before I got too big to be able to help Doc. Right now, we have a crapload of donated baby stuff...everything from a carseat to not one, but two, co-sleepers, not to mention three garbage bags full of baby clothes. I'm not sure how or when I'm going to filter through and organize all this stuff, but Doc wants his office back (right now, everything is being stored in his office) and it looks like Babies R Us threw up in there. There's only this small, clear pathway to his desk and then all around is just baby stuff. Every time I look in his office, I cry a little inside knowing that I have to go through all it. Don't get me wrong. I appreciate that we don't have to spend the time and money to buy it, but does this little guy really need a baby wipe warmer (yes, we have inherited one of those, too).
Do genes matter?
