I am also counting this as my 35 week and 4 day picture. My last doc appt was last Monday. Everything was great...blood pressure was good, Stella's heartbeat was at 150 and my favorite...I only gained 2 lbs!!! I've been gaining at least 4+ lbs at every appt. So I was stoked! The only questionable thing that has happened is two weeks ago I started getting, what I think is Ocular Migraines. I looked it up online and it's caused by stress and premenstral changes. I was getting wierd vision in my peripheral vision where it's like if you stare into a light for too long and you just start seeing light spots. It only lasts for 10 mins and then goes away. It's happened 3 times in the last three weeks and I told my OB about it so she had me get my blood drawn on my last appt to make sure everything is normal there. It's so weird because I've never had that happen before. I'm hoping it's nothing serious and it will end completely after I have Stella. I was reading some other comments from other women who have had it and I've had all the same symptoms as they have and I guess there really is no cure, it's just an annoyance and it seems to be caused from pregnancy hormones. And for most women it ends after they have their babies. So I'm not too worried about it, I just hope it goes away because they are quite annoying!
My next appointment is this coming Wednesday where I'll have the Strep B test done and I start my weekly appointments. It's getting closer! In my last appointment my doctor approximated that Stella weighs 6 lbs...I have a feeling she is gonna be a big baby! I'd love it if she were between 7 and 8 lbs though...I really don't want her to be big. But there's nothing I can do about it...the important thing is that she is healthy.
Anyway, that is the update and here are some pics!
