I had my glucose test this week and I passed so no diabetes for me! I really didn’t mind the drink at all. To be honest I kind of liked it! I pretty much only drink water so it was nice having a sweet drink. The only problem was drinking it so fast. It was a bit difficult getting it down quickly since it was so sweet, but I managed. It gave me horrible acid reflux though and I couldn’t do anything about it until after they took the blood and by then it was better. I met with my first midwife and I loved her! We discussed my diet (that was my homework – a food journal) and both agreed my veggies are lacking. She said just put some cheese on them. 🙂 Well, I can do that! If I had more energy to cook when I got home it wouldn’t be an issue, but I just hate cooking during the week. My weight is looking good. I was only up 2 pounds from my last visit. She said I am on track and she would like me to gain 25-35 pounds. I am feeling bigger now. Still a long way to go when it comes to growing!!
We are most likely going to adjust my due date by a few days. I believe my due date to be 6/13 not 6/9 and she agreed. My last ultrasound put me at 6/12 so looks like I was much closer than the docs! Really, 4 days isn’t a huge deal, but she said it is important if I go into early labor. Since the birth center will not force me to induce I am not as worried about it as I was at the OB’s office. I expected them to pressure me at 41 weeks which really wouldn’t be 41 weeks for me! At least I don’t have to worry about that now. My biggest concern at this point is making sure this little guy ends up head down. That is a c-section for sure so let’s all hope he figures it out when the time comes.
I will post more updates this weekend along with my new picture!
