I have to say…after the last appointment where I gain 4 pounds, I must have completely let myself go! I was shocked last week at the doctor’s office when she said 6 pounds! Yikes. That means I’m up 17 pounds. It sounds like a lot of weight and I’m back on the wagon to watching my intake. Mind you…..the Dr. didn’t say a word about my weight and hasn’t been worried at all, but 17 pounds….I don’t gain 6 pounds EVER in 4 weeks. I’m trying to move past this.
We had our gestational Diabetes and iron test, both of which are fine. That orange sugar water I had to drink before the appointment was TERRIBLE! It was like drinking three thawed otter pops…remember those popsicles that came in the box of a variety of flavors? She was very active when we listened to the heartbeat and the Dr. said she must like sugar.
This is the last appointment that is 4 weeks...we are moving to three weeks after our first March appointment...that means we are getting close!
My first shower is already on the calendar and I’m very excited about it. My nearest and dearest Jaime is throwing a shower with the bunko ladies. Should be a lot of fun, and I can’t wait!
