OB appt & Little Gym

28w5d. I saw the Nurse Practitioner since my OB was on vacation this week. She is currently in my OB’s old office. BP was 138/74- nice to see 70s again. I measured at 30 weeks- just over 1 week ahead. I knew it went down!!! Urine was +1 again for protein. :/ Not too concerned… I was told +1 is okay but it IS the step before being concerned. I seem to either have highish BP OR a slight protein amount each visit now- they flip-flop. Sigh. Gained 13 pounds… rofl. I had to go check my weight on my OB’s scale and there is a 7.5 pound difference between the 2 scales!!! So I really gained 5.5 pounds. Still, quite a feat in 15 days! Go me! Total based on my home scale is 11 pounds. NP was very nice and calming. She said it’s fine that indentions from socks and crossing my ankles, etc. take a long time to return to normal. I go back on June 19th at 3:30. I asked for 3 weeks this time so we can go to the beach and then visit the in-laws and she didn’t have a problem with it.
Little Gym was tonight. The last of the parent & child sessions. The first half was the same ole story except that 2 or 3 times a teacher interacted with him and he would actually respond and once even walked the high beam with one of them at her suggestion. DH and I tried to stay on the red mat side of the room when the class was doing a group activity. I was happy that Bren joined the class there when the balls came out and practiced throwing and kicking them beside all the other kids and parents. His first red mat activity!!! So a bit of success today. We’ll be gone for the first 2 child only sessions so who knows what’ll happen when we get back to Little Gym and he goes solo.
A little Bren-bit to share:
Bren can now count to five using his fingers! It’s neat to see him bend his thumb abd pinkie in to make a 3. I wonder how high he counts out loud now… last I remember it was about 15.
His current favorite shows are Pooh’s Heffalump Movie and Tarzan. He has shown a small interest in coloring with crayons on plain paper. Can’t get him to color in a coloring book though he loves to paint. Still obsessed with flashlights and loves his blocks (similar to Duplo blocks but these are easier to take on and off). Still plays with the weirdest things- right now it’s the pump type spout off a lotion bottle.
Sadly, there has been little interest shown in using the potty lately.
