Amelia got a wonderful report at the 32wk appt.  She is 68%ile for weight, which greatly pleased the doctor. All of her measurements are on track and even a bit ahead.  I am now going to be seeing the doctor every two weeks.

At the ultrasound, she had much less room to move around, but was still a little squirrelly.  There was no evidence of fluids near the cervix, which is very good.  We saw all her major parts, including her femur, heart, brain, and profile.  She was playing with her feet and also had her arms above her head.

My report was not as good, but still okay.  I have still not gained any weight, but as long as she is growing, they are not super worried about it.  My BP was the highest it's ever been (140/96 and 133/96), so they are displeased with that.  I am currently doing another 24hr urinalysis to check for protein spillage.  The doctor ordered non-stress tests done every Tues & Fri, so I will start with those today.

I have finished grad school, so all I have left to do now is get ready for baby.  What a relief!

Mark and I have said that we'll probably do cloth diapering. We have several friends who are using them.
