It's Outie Here

I had my 30-week OB appointment yesterday. Everything is looking good. Here are my stats:

Weight gain: 20 lbs. at 30 weeks (I have actually "gained" more, since I lost and gained back a lot of weight in the first and second trimesters, but they only count starting weight - yay!)
Blood pressure: 108/62
Fetal Heart Rate: 156 BPM
Fundal Height: 29 weeks

That was about it. These every two week appointments are kind of boring, which is just the way that I like 'em. As usual, I was the last appointment of the day, so Dr. S was chatty. He gave Will an "exam" and even used the doppler on his belly, too! He was pretty impressed with that and when we had dinner last night, he kept pulling up his shirt and pointing to his baby.

I have some belly pictures on the camera that I'll have to post. Probably the most notable thing for me about this pregnancy is that my belly button has gone outie. Now, I don't know about some of you out there, but for some reason, this really gives me the heebie jeebies. I feel the area right around my belly button getting tighter and itchier, but the button itself is numb. I just am trying not to think about it. With Will, it stayed innie til the bitter end, but I guess it was too much to expect of it this time. I hope it goes back to its former self.

I LOVE that Will also got a dopplering. Such fun.

I never went totally outie, but I did go completely flat. It gave me a wonderful opportunity to really get all the crevices cleaned out. And it did go back, but it is rounder now, which is probably a good thing since I was a little lopsided before.

That is so sweet! Sounds like you have an excellent OB! And I love the uneventful OB visits!

Your belly button isnt sore? Mine is sore now but hasnt popped out yet. Was it sore with Will?

I never went all outie. My belly button looked so gross, like it couldn't decide what it wanted to do. And I had 2 scars from old naval piercings that looked extremely gross, too. Nothing like a sexy pregnant woman with old scars!

Glad everything is going well! So cute about Will!!!
