23 week checkups

Double visit to specialists went very well!

Gyne only wants to see me after 5 weeks. Of course this comes after I told him I have my bp tested 2-3 times a week at the hospital and I see my GP every fortnight. He poked around a bit with the sonar and said it looks like it could be a girl.

The sonagrapher on the other hand was more certain, and Henk reckons she’s a bit more than batty. I loved her consultation! She confirmed that peanut is looking pink. Got some nice 4D footage in the beginning, but then peanut flat out refused to give a decent pic. She kept putting her hands up in front of her face – little diva already.

Her growth is normal – I was really worried about that. Because if mom’s bp is too high during pregnancy, it can stunt baby’s intrauterine growth. But she’s ever so slightly above the mean, there is enough amniotic fluid, the placenta is lying ok, no calcifications seen. Very positive visit J
