somebody purchased the Chicco Lullaby Playard for me off my registry and had it shipped to my house -- and there's NO NOTE, NO CARD, NO PACKING SLIP, NO NOTHING!!!???
how can i thank you if i don't know who you are!!?
step forward because this was a wonderful gift to receive and i'm LOST as to how i can possibly tell you of my appreciation!
in other news, i'm not having such a hot day.
and i'm not going to get all dramatic about it because i'm too tired.
but i had a prenatal appt this morning and here are the highlights:
1) i've gained 8lbs in 4 weeks. awesome.
2) my fundus height measurements were on the low side. i should be somewhere around 29 cm and i'm between 26-27cm. doctors don't seem worried but hello, let's face it, that's not the reading i was hoping for and it sorta just underscores my fear of IUGR.
3) i've been having cramping and i told the doc that and she said if it happens again, to head over to labor and delivery. uhm. please. i did however take her advice and head over to another wing of the hospital for an NST (non-stress test) where they hook you up to random monitors for an hour and watch for movement, heart rate, and contractions.
4) i have some minor "uterine activity" going on...but nothing serious. i passed and was sent home.
the good news is: my high-risk Level 2 sonogram is scheduled for monday. it'll be interesting to compare THOSE very highly accurate measurements to the measurements of a freaking tape measure across your stomach (seems archaic to me...just saying). they'll be measuring for growth, and for brain, kidney, intestinal, and heart development.
guessing i'll have more concrete answers then.
and i'm assuming all the worry will be for nothing -- just like it always is.
