Nothing terrible but the first where there was any variation at all.

fundal measurement 31

concerned about my iron level...106 down from 129 at the beginning..I am working on it.

babies heartbeat 138...sleeping baby today..usually it's in the 150's

blood pressure...120/78 which is actually pretty high for me...do you think it's the stress I have with my oldest daughter? Today was particularly stressful.

But I am not worried. As long as baby is well I am well...I trying hard to take care of myself..it's hard. I especially have trouble eating right. and I am not taking time to rest and I need to.

and now I go every two weeks instead of every 4...so we are moving along.

allgirls~sounds pretty good, but take time to rest! It helps my energy sooo much when I sleep a lot! I know its hard with kids though.

I went to my midwife today...
She doesnt measure me, so I don't know what my fundal measurement is.

My BP was 117/73
I lost 1 lb. (but have already gained 31lbs.)
I passed the glucose test and my iron levels were fine.
