24 weeks!

I went in for my week 24 appointment early this week.  I was seeing my new Dr. for the first time, so I was actually a little ALOT nervous!  My blood pressure was pretty high again.  It was high last month too, but I was nervous about my seeing my other Dr. for the last time on that visit.  I'm really thinking the BP is a non-issue, but we are watching it.  He measured the height of the fundus and I measured exactly 24 weeks, so we are right on schedule! 

As far as the new doc, he was amazing.  You walk in his office and there is a picture of a Dr. sitting at his desk with Jesus standing behind him!  He was a God send!  We had a nice little chat, and discussed lots of things including induction, episiotomy, C-section, our children, and more!  As far as induction goes, I was induced with Colt and Luke, but not sure if I am going to go that route this time.  With Luke, I didn't have an option.  I was getting a little pre-eclamsia.  I kind of want to go into labor on my own this time around.  I may change my mind when I'm 39 weeks and miserable, but he said he would induce at 39 weeks if I was ready.  Which I would have to be at least dilated to a 2, and thinning.  I know TMI.  He said he would not do anything that puts the baby at risk regardless of what I wanted.  He only has a 15% C-section rate, so he said he would do all he could to prevent that, and I'm thankful for that because I do NOT want a C-section!  If she were to be breech, he will attempt to turn her. 

As far as weight gain, I had gained 2 more pounds.  Total weight gain is 12lbs now, which I believe is great!  Considering, I usually gain 40+ during pregnancy!  I don't want to gain more than 10 more lbs during the next 3 months, and unless I begin to swell I think it will be no problem.  Haha!  On a fun note, we are going for a 4D ultrasound in about 2 weeks.  I'm excited to get a little sneak peak of Miss Luci Colt!
