Appointments Update

Our appointments went great! Our baby girl is doing fine, her heart rate sounds great! I drank my orange drink and got my blood work done(I have a lil' bruise to prove it:) My next appointment is in 2 weeks! Yup, this is the beginning of going every 2 weeks now. I asked my OB about the Level 2 ultrasound, and she said that she is going to put in a referral for me to have it done at the same hospital we take Lil' Chris for his CF Clinic Visits, b/c they don't do Level 2 ultrasounds at the hospital around here. I asked her when would be a good time to go, she said more towards the end of the pregnancy. So, we are probably going to go around 34 or 35 weeks. When my OB got done explaining this to us and walked out of the room, I said to my husband..."If she knew about this Level 2 ultrasound already, than why didn't she suggest it to us when we were pregnant with Lil' Chris, or even with this baby?" It made me kinda mad, but thanks to Daniel's mom I know about it now. Hopefully it won't show any bowl obstruction which is a sign of CF. I also asked her if insurance would cover it and she said that they most likely will, b/c our other child has CF.

Next, we went to Lil' Chris' appointment and everything there went great too! Well, it went great up until he had to get his 3 shots:( Sorry baby:,( It's a few days later now, and one of the shots has a big red mark around it. It also seems to hurt him when we touch it. Should I be worried? Or is this normal? This never happened with any of his other shots. He had no other problems with the shots, no fever or anything like that. I hope the red circle goes away soon.

Oops, I almost forgot...He got to stand on the big scale to be weighed for the first time!! He looked like such a big boy!! Why do they have to grow up so quick?

I almost forgot this big news too...The doctor noticed that he is starting to get his molars...YEA!! Finally some more teeth!! I was looking for the teeth next to his 6 that he already has to come in, not thinking that the back ones would come in first. I'm so glad, b/c that means he'll be able to eat more foods and get more calories! YEA!!

If you are concerned about where Lil Chris got his shot, call the doctor and ask if it is a normal reaction.

Glad your OB appointment went well! I can't believe you are already at the "every 2 week point"! That's exciting!

I'm so glad everything is going good! The next 2 months are going to fly by with your appts closer together. I need to start looking for flights in February... =)

How is Lil C's shot now? If it's still red & hot to the touch I would call the ped just to be sure...

Talk to you soon! Kiss Lil C from Aunt D!
