doc appointment

Yesterday I had my doc appointement check up. Everything went well. Babys heart beat was at 150. (does that mean it's a girl?? lol) He also gave me the sheet thing for my second ultrasound. He said I should book it as close to 28 weeks as I can. A few weeks before or after is fine since 28 weeks it will be christmas. I had like a list of things I wanted to ask him about. One being that the back of my right leg has been hurting and I am worried about blood clots. But he said as long as it doesn't have a big bump, isn't swollen, red or warm it should be fine. I do have some spider veins around that area so I guess it's possible that that is why it's hurting. It doesn't really help either that I stand all the time at work either. He said those type of veins are common in pregnancy because of the pressure on the blood due to baby.

The doc was also happy to hear that I can feel baby move frequently. That is good it means baby must be progressing okay. It would be really bad if there was no movements detected at all. I try to talk to baby everytime he/she kicks. Chris does to. I find it cute and funny that he talks to my belly. lol. I also mentioned the msds sheet for the spray at work on a particular job that I am almost always on. He didn't seem to concerned he said we are past the point of developing baby parts. The first trimester is the most crucial because cells are splitting etc. He said now we are more concerned with growth and maturing of the organs. He said it's good that there are no known ingredients to cause Cancer or birth defects. He said doesn't mean there isn't any but it's good to see that there are no known ones. He said unfortunately with chemicals there really isn't to much studies done to see if it does in fact cause birth defects. He was happy to hear though that I am not on the job constantly because it's still good to try and not breathe it in as much as possible.

Other then that it went well. My heart palps seem to have almost gone away completely which is really weird but good at the same time because I was getting them so frequently. I don't know why they stopped but it's one less worry for me. Well I do get them here or there but not nearly as frequently as I used to. So that is very very good. He was happy to hear that they have decreased as well. Other then that the check up went well. Sounds like I will probably be seeing him a few more times before I go to the doctor here in. He said he would send the papers or whatever they need to do soon. He said usually they like to get that stuff about 6ish weeks before they start to see me. I guess soon my doc visits will be more frequent. My blood pressure and my urine was also clear of whatever they look for for pre-eclampsia. That made me feel tons better since I have been a bit stressed and overwhelmed due to allll the things we have to do for closing on the house and trying to pack and being exhausted, working and trying to clean the apartment. Unforunately for me I can't really do a whole lot with cleaning stuff since it's bad for me and baby (at least with the extensive cleaning we are doing because who likes to leave an apartment not super super clean). Poor Chris is left with doing that mostly.
