Can You Say “FATTY”?

June 21, 2010

That’s right!  It’s official!  I’m a fatty!  I just got back from Dr. OB’s office for my routine check-up.  I’m 24 weeks and 4 days pregnant.  To date, I’ve gained 21 pounds with this pregnancybut…I’ve gained 8 freakin’ pounds in the last 3 weeks.  Ummmm, not good.  Fortunately, I didn’t get a lecture.  He just told me to re-think second helpings at dinner and cool it with the desserts.  I need some serious willpower cause I’ve been so hungry lately.  Mind over matter, I suppose.  Aside from the weight, everything else is on schedule.  Her heart rate was 144 and my belly is measuring fine.  I go back in three weeks for the dreaded glucose tolerance test.  I can hardly wait!

In other news, Mr. B and I went to the Pediatric Cardiologist last week for a routine visit.  The Maternal Fetal Specialist offered the appointment to us at our Anatomy ultrasound because he said IVF babies have a higher incidence of heart defects.  That was the first I had heard of that.  Anyways, we took him up on the offer.  Better to be safe than sorry.  Our appointment went well.  The Cardiologist was super nice.  He did an Echocardiogram on Baby B and everything was totally normal.  And it was great to see her again on the big screen.  She’s getting bigger and bigger.

Other than that, not much else is going on.  I’m still tired alot but that’s basically it.  I love feeling her movements.  The bigger belly and bigger boobs have been interesting too.  On that note, here I am at 24 weeks!  Enjoy!

    You are not a fatty you are a beautiful pregnant woman!!! I am gaining a lot of weight too and as scary as it is if you started off on the slender side than I think it’s pretty normal to gain more weight. I chose to think this way! 🙂 I am glad all is going well with your baby girl and that the specialist visit went great too, one less thing to worry about.
