A little update with a pic too :)

I've had a lot of little concerns for this pregnancy so I just thought I would do an update.

- My placenta has moved up and is no longer an issue! Woot! Yahoo
- I was borderline on the 1 hr GD test. Sad
- BUT I did the 3 hr GD test today and I do NOT have GD!!! Yeah!
- I am unfortunately anemic, so I am now taking a supplement. (I didn't even suspect...)

I am in my last week of the 3rd trimester and I am so excited!! I am only up 1lb so far too! I am starting this pregnancy much heavier than Kostas's so I am very happy to keep my weight gain loooow.

I also talked to the midwives where I am going to be going to birth this baby and they OK'd me going there at 38 weeks instead of 36, which is such a relief! (They don't deliver babies on the little Alaskan island I live on so you have to go elsewhere...)

So, all the concerns as of right now are laid to rest and I am SO relieved! Here's a picture of my little sweetie from my 24 week U/S too Smile

YAY for moving placentas!!!

Do you just go and hang out starting at 38 weeks waiting for labor or something?

Thankfully no.

Pretty much. You go and just wait for it to happen. I feel for the moms who end up being away from home for a full month waiting for baby to come... Hopefully that won't be me since Kostas was born on his due date.

Yay! What good news that your placenta has moved! Now you can just get on and enjoy Biggrin so do you have to go to where you deliver t 38 weeks and just hang around until baby comes?
