I had my 30 week appointment yesterday...Time is flying! I can hardly believe that I'll be there every two weeks now. It really hit home that this baby is going to be here...SOON!!<br><br>
Anyway, the appt was good. THe baby is still breech which I'm not *too* worried about yet since ds was breech for a good long time (until about 34 wks, I think). But if I have to, I will go to The Farm to have this baby! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol"> That was our plan for ds if he hadn't turned <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/winky.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Wink"><br><br>
I had my GD test yesterday too. After weighing myself and learning I had gained 7 lbs in three weeks, I'm feeling a bit nervous about the results. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/redface.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Embarrassment"> So far I've gained 40 lbs! Ugh. I gained about 8 lbs in the four weeks before that...But I eat well, I really do! If I gain one pound a week until 40 weeks, it'll be the same weight gain I had with ds...but it still seems like a lot, yk? And I just love my MW, last time she just said "well, the baby must be having a growth spurt" <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/loveeyes.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Loveeyes">:<br><br>
Anyone else already on the every two weeks schedule? And wondering where the time has gone?!

I am only going to be 27/28 weeks on Friday (depends on who you ask) and I am already going every two weeks but that's because of the liver thing.<br><br>
I am sure your test will be fine!! Weight loss was high with all of mine but this one and I never failed a GD test (had it with all three boys, but not this one). I think I gained 50-80 pounds with each of them. 20 of that was water at the end, but still, that's a high gain!!

We're on the two week visit schedule now - had my last visit last Monday and my next one next week. One more after that and then it's weekly!<br><br>
I'm exactly where you are with weight gain, and was the same with DD. So I'm not too worried about it, and I declined the GD test, since I figured that I do eat pretty well and had no problems last time (of course, I declined the GD test then too).<br><br>
We threatened to go to the Farm too last time when we lost our MW care at 37 weeks. We then considered UC. This put the MW services in a bit of a panic and they found some people to take us on. All ended well, but it is nice to know that the Farm is an option...

LOL. Yeah, I'm sure a lot of it is water since the day ds was born I lost 30 lbs!

My midwives move from four week schedules to three week unless there is a particular concern, so I have 2 more appointments before the one week schedule!<br><br>
I don't know what I have gained exactly. I just know its a lot. I still look okay though, so I'm not too worried. I was pretty skinny when I got pregnant and everything spread out immediately.

Ohhh, weekly visits...that will be CRAZY! I feel like I still have TOO much to do between now and then.<br><br>
So with you dd, who was there for your birth? A CPM, a DEM? Why did you lose your MW at 37 (!) weeks? I'm curious b/c there are some CPMs I could use locally for a breech baby, but The Farm has such a great track record with breech births...
