It appears that South Jersey is again swamped with massive amounts of snow. This is the second major snow storm since finding out I was pregnant. Not to mention all the smaller snows we had...I guess Little Bean is a snow baby! With this storm, we're looking at 2 feet of snow again. And then, it's supposed to snow again on Tuesday night into Wednesday. Thank goodness we're not looking at another 2 feet then, just 3/4 of a foot. This is so unlike NJ to have this much snow in one season. I do think I may go outside in a bit and take some pictures. Not to worry, though, DH will walk with me and make sure my precious cargo stays safe. He always protects Little Bean.
I had my check up with Dr. H yesterday. Everything seems good. Little Bean's heartbeat was 160bpm. He found it right away with the doppler. It was a strange appointment as it is the only one I've ever had at an OBGYN where I didn't undress and my feet were not in stirrups. It was a nice change! All my bloodwork came back good, which I knew it would. They haven't mentioned the glucose test yet, so I guess that'll come when it needs to. I never had issues with my glucose levels before, but being pregnant can change everything! On another positive note, my blood pressure was great. Since I struggle with high blood pressure (for unexplained reasons other than PCOS), it's something I watch closely. It was starting to become more elevated during the first trimester but Dr. H didn't want to increase my medication. Good thing, since my last two appointments have shown excellent readings.
That's about it for me. Oh, I wanted to post two pictures of my growing belly. One is a full length shot and the other is a close up on my little bump. Enjoy!
