Hello again--I'm just going to pick up here and not worry about getting all my earlier posts on the new board.
So what's been happening over the last few weeks? I have gone from an eating machine back to my normal (pre-pregnancy) light-eating-self. I've gained 24lbs total. Worrisome thing--I am growing out of all my maternity bottoms. I guess I'll have to spend a bit more money on clown pants before all is said and done.
I had a wonderful surprise shower last week at school--I didn't expect a shower at all this pregnancy. Got lots of great necessities and a few fun extras too.
What else? Hmmmm. Had the 1-hr glucose test Monday, along with the hemaglobin/hematocrit tests. My 30wk checkup is Monday next, so will get the dr's report on all this. I have lots of questions to ask her then, too: does she or others in the practice strip membranes? do they have a time limit on labor or second stage pushing after which they'd do a c-section? is the leakage in my right breast normal (right breast leakage is off-white, while left breast's is clear)?
Dave is being an absolute angel--helping me in all kinds of ways. Unfortunately, I know that he will suffer once baby arrives. He has trouble making sure he eats enough (or at least healthy enough), and he'll also need to keep up with bills and such for a while, which will take a little training from me ahead of time, since I use online payments on Quicken and a folder system that he has never used.
I'm going to start packing my hospital bag this weekend, probably.
Hope all are well and healthy.
