29-Week Check-Up & Ella's Fever
Today was my last monthly check-up. We saw the nurse practitioner Denise and had a nice, basic check-up. For the first time in a LONG time, we were able to hear the heartbeat without a problem. I guess the baby is too big to hide right now! Now that I'm 29 weeks, I'm switching to the two-week visit schedule.
As for life with Ella, she came down with a fever on Sunday afternoon. It was strange, she was as sweet and happy as can be all that morning and then woke up from her nap with a fever and was extremely clingy. She literally sat in my lap for the rest of the day. Then yesterday she seemed fine -- back to her normal temp and happy. However, this morning, she woke up again with a fever but said she felt fine, went back to sleep for 2 hours and then woke up again with a normal temp. Of course, a couple hours later she felt hot again and now she is back to normal. I'm not quite sure what to make of it all. I guess her body may still be trying to fight something off. I guess we'll just wait and see.
