It looks like I am making up for the luxury of having six weeks in between the first few doctor's appointments. I went in this morning for what was scheduled to be my glucose tolerance test at 9 am. As it got closer to 10 am, I finally went and asked at the front desk if they could please check to see if I could at least get the glucose test started while I was waiting. They returned with the news that it had been decided that they were not going to do that today. Since I need the Rhogam shot at 28 weeks, they decided to postpone the glucose test until then. It would have been nice to know ahead of time so I could have rescheduled this appointment but I guess those are the breaks. Now I will go back in 2 weeks for Rhogam and glucose and then 2 weeks after that for my regular appointment.
I did get to hear Junior's little heartbeat this morning and it was going strong although I forgot to get an actual number. The doctor also measured me for the first time and I am measuring about 27 1/2 weeks so a little over a week ahead. With Emma, it was always dead on and then kind of stalled. I predict that Junior will not be the little 5 lb 9 oz bundle that arrived on the scene in November 2007!
In other news, we are headed to Louisville tomorrow to watch Danny and Melissa walk down the aisle. Little brother Paul will be on the scene, which is great since we haven't seen him in two years. He will finally get to meet his little niece! Wish us luck traveling with our strong-willed, on the go 18 month old.
