Today, I went to the doctor for my first round of stress tests. The scale tipped at 20 pounds today!!! So, I am still in the “normal” range of weight gain (they like to see 25 – 35 pounds), but I am putting on the pounds now!

For the stress tests, they hook up a monitor to track the baby’s heartbeat and movement while tracking whether or not there are any contractions. At least they let you relax in a leather recliner. Those are the kind of tests that I do not mind!

At this point, I have just been feeling more tired and extra pressure in my pelvis area due to the baby. But no contractions or anything else that has been different.

Our baby girl passed with flying colors. Lots of movement, proper heartbeat rhythms and no contractions for me. Now, she just needs to stay put until Florida.

I go back to the doctor again for another stress test next week…
