Here's Baby 6 at 33 weeks/1day. 

Weighing in at 6 pounds, 6 ounces "he" has been very consistent with weight gain since my very first appointment... always 3 weeks ahead of schedule.

Throughout my pregnancy my blood pressure has been managed with medication and my glucose levels have been steady (also with the help of medication and a careful watch of my carbs).

At today's appointment we added some new words to my previous status as a advanced geriatric, grand multi-para,  gestational diabetic, pre-hypertensive  patient.  Packing on the terms as well as the pounds it seems.

This week's ultrasound revealed a transverse baby and a low lying placenta, while the blood pressure monitor displayed numbers creeping higher than the week before.  My glucose register remains consistently "good" but not ideal. 

Today we talked about taking it week by week and probably an early baby with possible C-section.  I guess it's time to get out the bassinet and wash up some baby clothes!

On the up side, I have no swelling and "very nice ankles", the nurse commented! (I've decided I love her.)
