27 Week appointment

So I had a doctors appointment yesterday. I was supposed to be nervous due to a glucose test that was scheduled for this appointment, but I got nervous for a very different reason. So forty five minuets before my appointment I was supposed to take this drink that was full of sugar. It tasted like a sprite with no carbonation. It wasn't bad at all. Then when I get to the doctors office they draw my blood to check to see if I have gestational diabetes. I really didn't want that, because then my diet would be really restricted. So I get to the doctor and they first weigh me and I have gained 5 lbs! I am up to 128 which makes the grand total 23 lbs! I am doing good. As the nurse was leaving she said something about having to get a shot and I didn't really understand, and she said the doctor would explain more. So the doctor came in and we measured my belly, which is 1 1/2 weeks larger than I should be, and listened to the baby's heart beat. He was really hyper and kicked the machine. Then he said that I would have to get a shot and I asked him to explaine. What I remember is that he told me my blood type is o-. If my baby is a positive blood type I have to have a shot after the baby is born so my body won't kill my next baby. I got really scared here and emotional. I had heard of this before, but what was confusing is that I thought I always had A+ blood type. I have never give blood, so the only record of it would be at birth. My mom thought I had that blood type too. So anyways I got one shot yesterday. I asked Daniel what his blood type was and he thought it was o- too. so maybe I will be lucky and have an o- baby and not have to get a shot. weird stuff!

Ugh, shots. No fun! I hope everything turns out ok.

Oh no! I hope everything will be ok. That is always a scary and emotional thing to think about.

I had never heard that, my blood type is O- too. I guess I am going to have to find out more information about it. I'm not a big fan of shots.

Hi cousin. If you want to see my family blog, it's pinestraw.blogspot.com

Anyhow, If you and your hubby are both negative on the end of your blood type, then your baby can not be positive, so in that case, I think you wouldn't need another shot.

If you are both O, then your baby will also be O as well. My sister in laws are negative Rh factor as well.

Anyhow, it's fun to see your blog. Your nephew Nathan is very similar in age to my son, Charlie who was born Nov. 14th!

I hope your mom finds the info to verify. Either way you should be okay because of the shot!

Michelle Church said...

Oh and your cousin's baby, Charlie, was born on the same day as Nathan - cool!

Wow, it sounds like you have the world's most ultimate baby shower! How cute is that. Wish I could've been there. And I can't believe in less than 90 days you're going to be a MOMMY! First, the turle costume is too adorable, second, I really hope the blood type is the same.. wow, that would really have scared me. And when do you leave Rexburg?
