We had one of the best gynae visits today!
Firstly the wait was about 30 minutes (vs. the standard 1.5 hours or the recent 2.5 hours we’ve been subjected to for the last 2 consultations).
The gynae was in an obviously good mood, had the time to joke around, answer my questions, acceded to my early request of a strep B test (just in case I was due early, to which he assured I wouldn’t. :p) and we had a fun, longer-than-usual time seeing baby chungkin via tummy scan.
Little one’s growth slowed down a little, putting on only 0.5kg more from the previous visit which was about 3 weeks ago (currently at approx. 2.2kg) but mama here put on 1.9kg, which was really bad. Though I kind of knew that those red velvet cakes & cookies I’ve been having almost every other few days would contribute to it.
The gynae said that he was very pleased with the growth progress, and that if I maintained, labour should be fairly smooth.
And!!! we managed to get quite a clear side profile of the little one too! Although his hands were in the way again, this time covering his mouth (probably still hungry from the light curry puff lunch I had earlier).
2 more weeks my little man, to you being full term and seeing you via the scan/monitor again! Whee. We’re all getting very very very excited.
