Midwife Appt - 22w5d

Let's recap briefly:

1. I gained six pounds in the last month. The month before? 1 lb. I guess that's from stopping Metformin.
2. The midwife tried to measure my fundal height but there wasn't much to measure! Ha!
3. The baby kicked the doppler off my belly.
4. The midwife said (THANK GOD) that I can sleep on my back and wouldn't have to worry about vena cava stuff for a LONG time. Oh my god I am so happy because sleeping on my sides was giving my sciatic pain.
5. I can stop taking the extra folic acid supplement.
6. She is going to send me a copy of my records for when we go to Florida in a couple of weeks.
7. She told me to tell people I don't have a big belly because I have incredible abdominal muscles.
8. She gave us hugs. She is my favorite of all the midwives.
9. My sugar was up a little bit - 100. I don't know if it's from the Metformin stoppage or because I tried that "drink a glass of orange juice to get your baby to move" trick.
10. Glucose challenge test next month. Also, next month's appointment is my first one YET with NO ultrasound. (Yay.)
11. Speaking of ultrasound, spine was perfect, heart had four chambers, everything was perfectly fine.
12. And WE ARE HAVING A GIRL! Say hello to our little daughter, August Ruth:
