Went to doctor again....as of this past week I've had a pressure type pain, I asked the doctor she said it was normal. I was worried last night when I had 3 strong contractions in about 20 minutes. Fortunatly they went away. Doctor checked my cervex just to be sure everything was okay, all was good news.
BP was 108 over 70 so that's been maintaining really well. My GD numbers were mostly within range I had a few that were high, but I was excused because it was the weekend of the baby shower, and yes I ate cake...2 pieces...it tasted sooooo good.
I can honestly say I haven't been too afraid of the scale, although I worry that one day I'll get on and it will really add up. I've gained a half pound in 2 weeks so I'm up to a total of 8lbs. The nurse was talking with me about my diet and the GD. She said I'm eating the low gylcemic foods which is probably helping me stay in the low weight gain area as well as good numbers.
I was going to register with the hospital this week but decided to wait another two weeks. Then I'll go in and register and visit the nurses again. I want to ask a couple of questions and what they think I need to pack for my visit there, and what they will provide. I don't want to overpack. The L&D in our hospital have very sweet nurses and said I could call on them if I had any questions, so I'll take them up on that offer.
I ran into a girl from my previous church this week and she just had a baby 3 months ago, she had the baby here at the local hospital and she said she enjoyed her time there and everyone was very attentive to her needs. I was glad to hear that as I was alittle worried.
Looking forward to the end of this pg and meeting my little girl.
Can't believe how each week just rolls by. Our shop has gotten so busy that Friday is here before I know it. Told my DH that at this rate baby will be here before we know it. I think that scared him alittle, me too.
Anyway my belly is getting hard more often than not today. I have such a hard time bending over for anything. I don't know how long this is suppose to last.
Sleep is a thing of the past...I don't seem to get much of that these days because my sides hurt or my back hurts or my hips hurt or baby is moving around too much and lastly I have to go pee. I try to go to bed early but just toss and turn all night.
I'm working on putting together the final colors for the nursery, I found some cute fabric that I got two little pieces to take home and try out in the room. I want to make the crib bedding and window covers. I waited to see if someone got the one I registered for first, but I think I'm gonna like what I do better anyway.
This weekend DH and I are going to BRU to pick up the things we didn't get on the registry. I'm looking forward to that trip. It's an hour and 20 minutes away so we'll go and have dinner too. Should be a good day out.
I'll post again next week. We have some cool stuff happening, next week we start our birthing classes, I have a doctors appointment and I'm hosting a ladies night (church related) on Saturday.
Okay gotta go!!!!
It's been a while since I've written in here. I went for an u/s at 35/36 weeks and my fluid levels were very low and doctor put me on bed rest. So there I was bored out of my mind for a few weeks. Went back in last monday for another u/s and saw that fluids have doubled, I took myself off bedrest so I could get some things done. A girl can only watch so much TV. Baby measures 6lbs4oz last monday, so she's a peanut.
In the mean time I'm very pg and very ready to have her now. Weight gain so far has only been 14 lbs and b/p is all good. Currently I'm 2cm with a very soft shortening cervix. Doctor said she could come this weekend but if not we will evict her on Monday with the hopes of being home for Thanksgiving. So I'm happy to have a light at the end of the tunnel. I hope she comes tonight or tomorrow. I actually had a good nights rest so I could have the energy.
I have a lot of high risk factors now. Over 35, asthma, gd, low platlet count and strep B. They may not let me have an Epi because of the platlet count being so low but I was going to try not to have one anyway. I will post next week some time to let you know how it goes.
