30 Week Update

We had a maternal fetal appointment on Friday, and the current stats are:

1. My BP was 143/85 (slightly lower than it was last time, but the doctor that we saw in the office proactively decided to add 1 more Labetalol to my regimen . . . woo-hoo!) BTW, I don't think I've mentioned yet that I had some "routine bloodwork" done at my OB's office, and they called me the next day to tell me that I'm anemic (baby's taking all my good blood . . . and that also makes me extremely tired ALL THE TIME) . . . so I'm taking 3 OTC iron supplements on top of everything else! It's okay, though, Philipeanut's worth it!

2. Baby's HR was 145

3. Baby weighed 2 pounds 10 ounces (still doing well in the 34th percentile . . . hey, what can I say, Justin and I are hobbits, and we're just breeding another hobbit!)

So everything looks good, and we had our favorite tech snap some fabulous shots for us:

Oh, and since I haven't done this in a while, my Random Cravings of the moment: brownies and Reese's Peanut Butter Eggs (makes you wish it were Easter all year long)!

OMG that is SUCH a little boy face! (my guess anyways)!!!!!! Those are amazing pictures and I am so glad that your BP is good! I mean 145/80 is perfect for you - I have no idea why they are worried! lol I can't believe the pics and it looks like HE has lots of hair just like my little beauty Dylan did. That is awesome! (Part of me is still hoping for a girl though - just to cover all of my bases!)

That's one cute fetus! Are you sure Justin's the dad?

Seriously, very glad about all the news (except the anemia). Cannot wait.

That was me, Will, by the way. That was my old blogging name.

What a precious little one! I totally think Filipeanut is GIRL! Glad to hear you've had good news, except the if pooping when you're 8 months pregnant was fun to begin with...good luck with the iron pills!

Love ya - see you Saturday!

What a beautiful baby you have! I think she has Justin's nose. I also snagged a couple of Reese's eggs before Easter--I like the different proportion of peanut butter to chocolate. See ya on the 8th!
