Midwife Apt Update and 24 wks Pic :)

Baby's heart-rate- 140

Blood Pressure- 114/60

Fundal Height- 33cm

Gained-2 lbs (3lbs total)

Trace of protein (she believes is from lack of eating before our visits)

We discussed my Rubella immunity! Blood work shows I am not immune but that has been the case every pregnancy, and she suspects I have been given the booster after each child as well (For sure after two) So I have to look into that further after this pregnancy is done!

She gave me the Cinnamonmum to start. I have to take 3 pills under the tongue every 12 hrs for 3 doses to help my placenta move up. She also wants me to do hand and knee back arches to help! We will have another u/s at 32 wks to check on placenta positioning!

We discussed my vaginal swelling! She suggested witch hazel on a pad straight out of the freezer along with Sitz baths, and soaking in bathtub in Epsom salt!

Baby appeared to be Right Occiput Anterior!


Only 1 more apt in 4 wks at 28 wks (July 15) and then we are down to every 2 wk apts 

At 36 wks I am supposed to start an Alfalfa supplement daily, and we will have a in home visit to discuss birth plan!

And I also am to start checking my blood sugar come morning for 3 days. I check as soon as I get up, and then two hrs after every meal!

All in all it was a great apt!!!!

Most Drs wont, c-section is much easier, less stressful for them, etc. But you can look into it on your own. Also getting in a hands and knee position multiple times a day arching your back helps make more room so placenta can move upwards!
