It is good to get my 16-week appt. checked off the list before our exciting trip to Italy at week's end!! GG and I are celebrating our ten year anniversary (a little early) and jet-setting to see his brother in Vicenza while also taking in Venice, Florence, and Rome for 6 days. Many thanks go to our Papa and Mimi duo for making much of this trip possible, especially for caring for our sweet cherubs while we're gone. Are they unreal or what?!? We are so grateful.
As of today's appt...
Baby's heart rate: 150bpm, strong, lovely, I-could-listen-to-it-all-day soothing
Mama's bp: 112/72 (this is really good for me--thanks to a hard workout this morning!)
Mama's weight gain: 7 lbs. (soon to be +15 lbs. after eating amazing Italian food!)
Doc's recs: compression knee socks for the plane ride to reduce the risk of clots, etc. Got some this afternoon--they are HOT! ;)
Mama's clothes: first maternity pants worn today--luxury!
I feel like I'm running around like a mad women, but as of Wednesday afternoon on the plane, it will all be worth it!
