i went to my appointment today got my prenatal vitamins, my pap smear, & got scheduled for an ultrasound tomorrow & i also found out that i'm not 12 weeks pregnant i'm about 20 or 21 weeks,
i was kind of expecting that but i got to hear me & adams baby's heart beat today.
i almost cried when i heard it although i wish adam was there but he was & still is working,
i want to see if he can get the day off tomorrow so the both of us can see the baby for the first time.

yes adam got a job as a flagger in construction for now,
he makes 12$ an hour & over time is 15$ an hour.

HI,
WELL I WISH I DID JOIN THIS AS A MOM, BUT THINGS ARE DIFFERENT FOR ME NOW. I REALLY DO GET PREGNANT, EVERYTIME WE TRY BUT I DONT USUALLY STAY SO FOR LONG. I DO HAVE A CONVICTION IN MY HEART THAT I WILL STAY PREGNANT THIS TIME FOR THE DURATION AND HAVE MY BUEATIFUL BABY. MY HUSBAND CANT WAIT TO CARRY HIS CHILD AND I AM BESIDE MYSELF AS WELL. WE TRUST GOD FOR A STAY POWER. I JUST NEED ADVICE FROM MOMS AND MOMS TO BE ON HOW I SHOULD GO ABOUT STAYING PREGNANT. PLEASE FEEL FREE TO ANSWER MY QUESTION ON HOW TO STAY PREGNANT AND WHAT I OUGHT TO DO TO KEEP FIT.

Gestational Diabetes

QUESTION

Dear Midwife,
I am six weeks pregnant with my second child. With my first (now 3 years old) I developed a mild case of gestational diabetes.

Should I start following the gestational diabetes diet now, or wait until the glucose screening test to see if I have it again? If I follow the diet starting now, is there a better chance that I won't develop it?

Thanks!

Weight Loss During Pregnancy

QUESTION

Dear Fitness Expert,
I'm 26 years old and 6 months pregnant with my first child. I have gained 25 pounds in the past 6 months. I'm 5'9 and approximately 230 pounds.

I was a bit overweight before I got pregnant and I am having so much trouble trying to exercise. I can't keep up, I get tired too quickly, and can't breath. I used to belly dance and Irish dance for 12 years before I got pregnant so I'm used to being fit, though I've never been "tiny."

I am really concerned that I'm not going to bounce back after pregnancy.

Baby Jack is on the move!

Finally, little Jack made his presence known in my belly this morning. How cool! It felt kind of like a muscle twitch. He has been moving around all morning, on and off. I was laying on my left side in bed, which seemed to be the best position to feel him swimming around. I am 21 weeks and 2 days along, so I have been patiently waiting for this! Now my husband can't wait to be able to feel him, too. All in good time, I guess :)
