Last week I had my 25 week appointment with my midwife's new nurse midwife that will have to deliver my baby because I'm a VBAC. I don't like her nearly as much as my regular midwife, but that's ok. She seems more "medical" and not as lax about things. My weight was up - I've gained 16 lbs so far! :eek: So she told me to try cutting back on carbs and I *know* I need to exercise because I totally stopped when I got pregnant and was feeling crappy. So that sort of stresses me out; usually I gain about 20-25 lbs total.
Anyway, she said the baby is head down right now, and face up which is the position my babies like to lay in! At about 35 weeks I'll probably start going to the chiro to get baby to turn so he/she isn't posterior. But that explains why I feel so many kicks and jabs right about my belly button.
Then we talked about the glucose test which is funny because I was just telling DH that it's so nice that I don't have to do it; my midwife always gave me the option but said it wasn't necessary for me because I don't have any of the signs of it. However, this time around this new nurse midwife said I should do it... and my regular midwife also said it's good to do it just to have my i's dotted and t's crossed for everything. Anyway, so they sent me home with a bottle of bright orange stuff to drink before I come next time. Joy! And this baby isn't a huge sweets fan so I know I'll probably feel so crappy afterward! Hopefully I pass; this whole gaining lots of weight thing is a little scary for me...
I did step on the scale the other day and weighed *less* than I did at the appt so maybe I'm losing a bit after the holidays?
So anyway, that's my update!
