Quick appt update: I passed my GD test, only by 2 points, but a pass is a pass! After my next OB I'll go to bi-monthly appts, June is creeping up fast!
Baby boy is a trouble maker already. He's usually super active at least 3 times a day, like shaking my belly active. But, starting early yesterday into today I only felt him maybe a couple times. I kept thinking that if I ate this or that or poked at him enough he would give me a couple good kicks, but nope, stubborn like his mom ;-) So today around 1 I finally caved and called my OB's office. My doc wasn't there today, but the on call dr decided to have me head straight over to the hospital to check on him. I started to freak out a little thinking maybe I shouldn't have waited so long and had AJ meet me at the hospital just in case. I got all checked in and hooked up to the doppler and what does the little turkey do as soon as the nurse leaves? Starts punching at the doppler....seriously dude? I try to get you jacked up on sugar and poke at you repeatedly and nothing, but as soon as there's a doppler strapped to my stomach you go nuts? So then I felt a little silly b/c obviously he was fine, but I would rather be safe then sorry. The nurse did sorta chide me about waiting so long to go in. All is well again and while I felt like the epitome of a first time mom I'm happy to know he's okay. Plus they did another ultrasound so we got to see his cute little face again :-) once again he had at least one hand over his face at all times, camera shy just like his father LOL
