24 Week Check-up

I had my 3rd prenatal appointment today (seriously! Six months pregnant and only 3 appointments! That's really okay with me though. I don't have time for more.)
Everything went well and fast.

BP: 99/62
Fundal Height: 25 cm
Fetal HR: 154/bpm
Weight gain to date: 14.5lbs

I also got the OK to travel to Mexico on Monday, armed with all my medical records and advice to take a baby aspirin for the plane ride.

Why a baby aspirin?

Naomi said...

Baby aspirin is a low-dose of aspirin, 81mg (not actually for babies!). Sitting on an airplane for that long can cause blot clots, and aspirin is a blood thinner. Just a precaution I suppose.

I was going to ask the same thing about the baby aspirin. (I've heard of some patients who've dealt with infertility having to use it also, once they're pregnant, but couldn't remember why.) Thanks for clarifying. Praying all goes well...I'm sure it will. :)
