I gained how much!?!

We saw Dr. Leight this afternoon. The results from the ultrasound were very good. The placenta was healthy and continues to be in a good position. There were normal levels of amniotic fluid. The baby weighted 3.7 pounds (+/- .25 lbs) and measured approximately 31 weeks (the ultrasound was at 32 weeks). Dr. Leight said it was in the normal range. The baby's heart rate was in the mid 140s today and my blood pressure was 120 over 80 (after a very stressful day!). Now for the BIG number... I've gained 6 pounds in the last 2 weeks! I just don't know how that could of happened. Dr. Leight said it was fine and I have noticed that I've been retaining some fluids (so I really don't think it's from the cake I ate!). That brings the grand total to 32 pounds. Good thing I gave up candy for lent.

The curtain rods I ordered for the baby's room came today. Ted won't put them up for me now... grrr... like I want. But I guess since he's taking me on a date to Table 24 I shouldn't be mad at him.

Update on my friend Becky's baby that was born 6 weeks premature... Dylan continues to breathe on his own without any oxygen supplements and is starting to lean to suck (he's been getting tube feedings). They continue to be in my thoughts and prayers!
