Doctor’s Appointment Update
This week I had to take the dreaded glucose test. The drink really wasn’t as bad as people make it out to be. I did feel a little yucky after drinking it, but for the most part I was fine. Everything is fine with baby. Her heart rate was in the 150 range…it stayed at 155-156 BPM. My weight gain is also fine. I’ve gained 4lbs since my last appointment. My stomach is measuring around 27 cm. My blood pressure and everything else is fine and I will get my results from the glucose test Tuesday. I hope I passed!
I have a couple of pairs of maternity jeans, leggings, and shirts. My regular jeans are much too tight to wear at this point, but I can still wear some of my shirts with no problem.
None yet. I’m using cocoa butter to help prevent.
YES! Lots and lots of movements…she’s even moving while I sleep.
How am I sleeping?
Less sleep…more uncomfortableness…what’s new?
My best moment this week
Getting that glucose test over with…hope I passed!
Do I miss anything?
Not getting shots and my blood drawn!
Belly button in or out?
Slowly making it’s way out…I think it’s almost ready to POP!
Wedding ring on or off?
Sweets! Probably because I cut back on my sweets this week in preparation for the glucose test.
What am I eating?
I’m eating pretty much the same things, but trying to add in more fruits, veggies, and fiber!
How do I feel? Symptoms?
Tired. Shortness of breath. Dry skin…it’s getting pretty ridiculous right in the middle of my forehead STILL! Back aching. Weird dreams. Blurred vision. Constipation. Hemorrhoid 🙁 It’s getting harder to bend down. Also struggle with sitting up in the bed or getting out of it when I’m laying down…the struggle is real.
Have I started to show yet:
Yes, very much so! There’s no question as to if I’m pregnant or not.
Am I happy or moody most of the time?
Happy, happy, joy, joy!
What am I looking forward to?
Seeing my baby! We will probably end up going back to the 3d/4d ultrasound place before her birth.
