22w update and Dr.s appt

We did manage to make it to our doctors appointment this afternoon despite the best efforts of the truck. This was the follow up to the 19w ultrasound and the results of our bloodwork. The doctor is in no way worried about the extra membrane sac in the placenta, she figures it's just a little cyst of fluid, and as it is no where near the fetus or the cord we'll just check it again at 28w with another US.

My bloodwork all came back fine, they did a MSS instead of just the AFP for me, and I have no markers of concern. My Down's rating came back at 1 in 270 and the average for my age is 1 in 220, they would do amnio at anything below 1 in 200. My NTD rating was 1 in 3200. The anatomy scan looked good, all the bits and pieces looked like they were in the right spots and growing at the correct rate.

My blood pressure is just fine 115 over 70 seems to ring a bell, and my heart rate, while super fast for me, is normal at 80 (non-pregnant resting heartrate for me is around 55). She didn't bother doing a fundal height measurement, but did note that I was measuring a bit larger (longer? bigger?) than 22 weeks. We again got to hear the heartbeat and the very active baby, and she did a pap while I was there, since it's been about 4 years now.

My next visit is at 26 weeks, and before that I have to book the appointment, go pre-register at the hospital so that they don't make me fill out the forms while I'm in labour, sign up for a pre-natal class and do the blood glucose test. Luckily I'm only doing the non-fasting 1 hour test this time, and I can do it at the same time as the 26w checkup.
