30-week appointment

I had another uneventful appointment today. My blood pressure is great. I haven't gained any weight gain since my last appointment. Cheeto's heartbeat was at 140 bpm. And my glucose level from my gestational diabetes test was normal at 116. My doctor and I talked about potential interventions during labor and delivery. I just wanted to get her opinions on when she'd resort to some of these measures, including a C-section. I was very satisfied with her answers. She seems to be a pretty conservative practitioner, but I know she'll always keep my and Cheeto's health in mind. My next appointment (32 weeks) will be Jan. 2, and I'll see one of the other doctors in the practice. Until then, I'll keep continuing my quiet, boring pregnancy!
