What Fruit are you?
An eggplant. // A large cabbage.
28 weeks.. aka the start of my third trimester.
Just a few days away from 29 weeks. // 30 weeks.
Had one Wednesday.. next one is in two weeks! // Wednesday.. we are officially into every two weeks I do believe.
Total weight gain/loss:
Total of 10 pounds. // Was 11 pounds at my nutrition appointment last Thursday.
None as of late.
I've switched to jeggings in the past week and they are amazing. Rob calls them "jantz" so it is kind of a running joke around here. But seriously I picked up a pair from Walmart for $12 and I wear them with my belly band... greatest pants ever. I now own four pairs. And that's basically all I plan to wear in public from here on out. // Invested in another maternity shirt.. it's a tunic, and I love it. Looking for a few more before Thanksgiving.. but not wanting to spend a lot, so that makes it kind of hard. The joys, right?
Hit or miss. Some nights great, other nights not so much.
Caesar salad from Texas Roadhouse. I wish I could find a way to get it like everyday without having to go there to get it. But hey it's whatever... if we are on the way to "clean-er" eating I'm all for it. // Everything I can't have. Pepsi, chocolate, french fries. My eating has been way better since getting diagnosed with GD [oh wait, that comes later in this post...] but I'm still struggling with what I can't eat.
Testing high on my 1-hr glucose test. I got a 152 when I needed to be below 135. Fantastical. So I went in for the AWFUL 3-hour test [that was more like 4]... and surprise surprise, my body can't handle all of the sugar being created. Luckily there is LESS THAN THREE MONTHS that I have to diet. So I'm just reminding myself that it is doable. Because.. it is. // Low blood sugar. Which is strange.. I tested high, but I haven't had normal readings in a while. Not sure what that's all about...
She's fairly active... like all of the time. // AND Rob felt her for sure like 100% for the first time within the last week. That is a huge deal since my placenta has generally been in the way of feeling her until now.
What I miss:
Not having to stress about things like glucose tests. And rum and white wine. // Pepsi, chocolate and french fries.
What I'm loving:
Knowing that we are in the final stretch. She will be here in under three months! Tons to do still, but it will all come naturally! // Getting her room all cleaned out, holes filled, sanded, painted, carpet cleaned and SOON FURNITURE!
What I'm looking forward to:
Finally getting signed up for some birth classes. The lamaze class that is offered for free through the local hospital and Tricare is full for the month of December... so I guess we will be going to plan B... do another class and teach myself how to cool it during labor. Wish me luck! // Opening all of my virtual baby shower presents this week. We've had a few last minute presents come in.. but we had an overall good turnout, and it is killing me not knowing what the packages consist of. Kill.Ing.Me.
Best moment this week:
Getting the glucose tests done. // Getting to share the joy of her kicking with Rob. She's become so active and I love that he gets to be apart of it now too.
