At 30 weeks (in 5 weeks) they will start doing non-stress tests every 2 weeks to make sure Isabel is doing ok in there.

He said that I was doing fine, I’ve only gained 8 lbs so far. (I’m 25 weeks) But, I pointed out, I’ve gained those 8 lbs in the last month! GRRRRR! Most of it is probably fluid, ok, I take that back, this thing sticking out of the front of me that causes people to say,
