Had my first offical craving, had to have a calzone yesterday for lunch. It had to be the most satisfying lunch I think I've ever had.
I'm out of freeze pops gotta get more, those are great for my hot days.
Things are good, today is a busy day in our shop, actually it's been busy all week. It's all good, just means I need to do actual work.
I started thinking about my DD and her going back to school, need to pick some stuff up for her. I like to make sure she's all set when she goes back to her dads house. I guess it's the mom in me.
Well I guess I'll work now.
Not much going on these days to report. Recieved our crib and set it up in the babies room. Found a highchair and a Pack n play for a bargin at a local thrift store, both in very good condition.
Still have a lot to do to get ready for baby. She has been kicking up a storm lately. I guess that's all good. I've been very tired lately or tire very easy. I feel sort of droopy more often than not.
DD goes back to her dad's next Friday. I'm going to miss her, but she misses her dad too and looking forward to seeing him. It will be a very sad day for me.
Well today is a sad day for me. My DD left today to go back to her dad's and I won't see her again until Christmas break. My heart is broken and today I will probably grieve all day. DH went with her so I will have a quite weekend and part of me is looking forward to that too.
Baby Joy is moving all over the place this past week. She's starting to wake me up in the middle of the night from so much movement. DH and I went to the hospital to look at the materinty labor & delivery. I was nice we got to talk with the nurses and learn how they do things there. They were all very nice. Signed up yesterday for Birthing classes, they don't start until Oct. 11. Cutting it close but I think we'll be fine, it will all be fresh in our minds.
My appietite is crazy out of control. I'm always ready to eat something. The weight is starting to begin building up. Until now I've gained 6 lbs as of my last doctor's visit but I got on the scale this morning and I think I've gone up another 4 lbs. We'll see next week at the glucose screening. And I guess after this I move to every two weeks at the doctor. We're moving alone nicely. No complications to report just get tired easy.
Life should slow down again with DD gone, but I sure will miss her. Not a good day for my emotions.
Went to doctor for my GD test. The nurse messed up and gave me the wrong test it was suppose to be the 1 hr test and she gave me the 3 hr test. I had to re-arange my morning to complete the test. Unfortunatley I failed the 3 hr test. I'm now scheduled to meet with a specialist next Wed. I hate to say it but I wish it were sooner, now I worry about what and how I'm suppose to be eating. They will give me a diet to follow and my very own finger pricker to track my blood sugar. They said I was boarder line so it should be easy for me to follow, maybe.
My next doctor's appointment is scheduled for Aug 30th and I will be getting my shot in the butt for having Rh- blood. And I'm sure they will prick my finger from now on.
Did my visit with the specialist yesterday to talk about having GD.
My MIL went with me and we were pleasantly surprised by getting an U/S baby girl looks good and measuring 2lbs 3oz and right on target. It was so cool to see my MIL so tickled to watch, I'm so glad she got to be there. She's the next best thing to having my own mom there.
Anyway, I met with a dietary specialist, there will be some changes in my diet but not as bad as I expected. I have to eat more often, that will mess me up and in proper portions. So it seems complicated but once I get used to it I'll be fine. Got my own finger pricker, used it 3 times already and each one was where it needed to be. I'm used to eating a big breakfast and smaller dinner but they have me reversed and I'll have to get used to it. 3 small meals and 3 snacks each day. Crazy. Just have to get used to it.
The specialist was so nice and she said that after I have the baby she would send me a special diet to follow to lose weight and reach my target weight, only about 35lbs. Hope it's not too hard, I'd be happy with 25lbs but being at risk for diabetes now will give me the incentive to take it further. It's a lifetime thing.
Well it's been 2 days now with my finger pricker, and doing my own testing. My numbers all seem to be on the low side but within range so I guess that means I'm doing good with it.
I got on the scale this morning expecting to see a gain in weight because of all the food I've been eating only to see it go down. I think I can live with that as long as baby is healthy. I know she's getting enough protien. I'm eating enough of it.
I have my regular doctor's appointment next Thursday so that will be the true test of my weight.
Well I had my first call in with the diet specialist, I'm suppose to call her every Wed. All my numbers were good this week so she said well done. Thank goodness...I think I'm getting the hang of it alittle as it doesn't seem to require as much thought as last week. Plus I've curved how I shop so allmy foods I have around me are good choices. DH doesn't care for it too much but willing to go alone for baby's sake. He's not much of a health nut.
I finally registered at Babies' R Us this past weekend, I started it on line so it wasn't as overwhelming as I thought. Found a great shopping area just 1 hour and 20 minutes from here and it's an easy ride. We were very excited about that, opens a whole new world of shopping other than Walmart. Christmas shopping here I come.
Not much else to report, baby is moving all over the place, she almost hurts sometimes now when she moves. I guess she's growing.
Can't believe it's been 29 weeks and were moving into the final phase. Anywhere between 7-10 weeks baby could be here.
DH and I picked out our rocker, I chose a swivel rocker something that can later be moved to another room and not look like it came out of a baby room. I can't wait until we get it so I can see how it will look in the baby's room. I'm doing a brown and pink theme so I picked out a brown fabric for the chair. I'm gonna make a pinkish stool for my feet but not to big, later I'll use it for the baby to sit at the coffee table. I like multi-function items.
My MIL gave me some extra invites for our baby shower. I'm excited. Started handing them out today. I hope we have a nice turn out, I don't care about the presants as much as I look forward to the gathering of friends.
The GD testing is going okay for the most part. Numbers are getting higher at night now but still within range. One night it was 120, the absolute top of the scale. I've increased my protien but still getting numbers like 118. Within range but very close. I've tried a couple times today to reach my dietian and haven't gotten her. I'll try again tomarrow. I worry about what she might say about some of my higher numbers. I'm finding it's not as easy as I thought because my tolerance for foods seems to always be changing and what works one day may not work the next. Very confusing.
Went to go see the doctor for my 30 week appointment. Had a weight gain of 1.5 lbs so now I'm offically up 7.5 lbs. I feel good about that and I'm on track for my target. I didn't want to gain more than 15 lbs total and I think even if I gain a pound a week now I'm okay with it.
BP was good 106/68, I asked about my iron level because I'v been so tired lately but she said my iron count was good. So basicly I have no excuse for feeling like crap other than maybe a lack of sleep.
Diabetes thing is under control with diet so she told me if I keep going with stable numbers I should have no problems. So I go back in 2 weeks then to the weekly appointments. They will schedule me for another u/s when I'm 36 weeks. I wish it were sooner.
Nothing else new to report.
