- Why Choose Sharp?
Met mom early for my monthly doctor's appointment in Grossmont and we had lunch beforehand! We like to shop and eat across the street before or after and it gives us a chance to catch up.
I saw Lisa Clark again while my mom read books to Baby James in the waiting room. Lisa was excited for us that Baby Alice is a girl and already has a name! She checked up on my morning blood sugar and I informed her that as long as I do the high protein thing I'm good. If I fall back to just a bowl of cereal I have to eat a half a peanut butter sandwich a couple of hours later and then it's ok too. She said to just stick with the high protein and I agreed. She went over the results of my combined prenatal blood work and everything came back normal. *whew!*
We listened to Baby Alice's heartbeat and once again it was a normal rate and rhythm and sounded STRONG! Lisa went over more symptoms I can expect in the next month or so and it all sounded pretty familiar.
I have to say, I'm really lucky. Overall I really have no complaints. Oh, except that I keep getting bigger; I'm kind of over being a huge pregnant lady. I keep reminding myself of what will be ours in … just 20 more weeks and then I have something sweet like a piece of fruit or something and I feel better.
I'm already buying a few things for Baby Alice's new room! We have a purple-ish butterfly garden theme going. We kind of need a bigger house or some rearranging will have to be done. What happens there remains to be seen.
Note to self: Don't forget to ask Dr. Gray, the next time you see her, what she thinks about you having another C-section or a vaginal birth. You keep forgetting to do that!
