Sorry I've been MIA

I've tried to post a couple different times from my phone but then it all gets totally wiped out and I give up. Just wanted to stop in and say Hi. Congrats to all the Momma's who have already had their LOs and hang in their those that are waiting Smile part of the reason I have not posted much is my two kiddos have kept me super busy and this pregnancy just keeps having "suprises" and it has worn me out. In a nut shell for those who don't remember me. I have a daughte Addison who is 5yrs old and a son Dalton who just turned a year on May 10th. I've had 3 losses and this is my final preg. My due date is July 2nd but I have had both kids @ 37weeks. I have MTHFR which is a clotting disorder, Gestational Diabetes, history of preterm labor, and was put on bedrest @ 34 weeks this time. So I am 36 weeks today and only have 1 more weeks to go on bed rest thank goodness! I have been going to the Dr weekly for NST/BPP test for about a month now and have had to go to the hospital 2x for contractions I couldn't get stopped at home. I will be a repeat csection to a little man that we are naming Ethan. I believe that about sums it up lol. I've missed you ladies and can't wait to get back in the swing of writing on here even though I've been watching the board I just felt silly when it came to writing since I've been mia for so long and then when my phone totally kicks me out I just give up. I'm going to try to attach a pic of me that I took yesterday also

Hey there! Welcome back! Look at you! You look gorgeous!

Sorry to hear you're having such a rough go of it. UGH. Only 1 more week of bed rest though, that's something to celebrate, for sure!!!

So do you have a c-section date booked yet or are they still waiting?

Well thank you! Having to follow the GD diet has kept me pretty slimmed down during this preg lol. We talked a few weeks ago about the 25th but they didn't put it in the book yet because of what all was going on. I have an appt tomorrow so I'm going to bring it up just incase he decides he wants to be different than the other two Smile

Good job on sticking to the GD diet. I hear it can be quite hard for a lot of women. My eating has been cr@p on the best of days...so I commend you!

It is a pain in the butt quite honestly! Hubby is a carboholic and of course the kiddos love sugar so ithas been hard watching them eat all the yummy food! I won't say I haven't had some here and there though!

I haven't had McDonalds in probably about 4 months, so I am pretty darn proud of that! Hey, I'm overdue, I can eat whatever I want Wink

If I had to follow a GD diet, I'd go out of my mind!

You guys are cracking me up. There is still "healthy" food to pick from McDonalds but it's not any of the good stuff lol. I'm honestly a little concerned about the lack of weight I've gained but the Dr doesn't seem worried. I've only gained 21lbs total and I haven't gained any weight the past 9 weeks.

LOL, quit your worrying. I'd give my left arm to have only gained 21 lbs. Obviously baby is growing...you're fine! Way to go!
