Hello Lovelies!! Just checking in with a pregnancy update!. I know its been quite some time but up until now you have not really missed much :). I did recently fail my 1 hour glucose test which sent me to tears. I know it seems dramatic (lol) but i’ve been a little more emotional lately and that really set me off. Anyway I just took the 3 hour glucose test so I will keep you up to date on how that goes.
So far I have been having a really great time with the pregnancy, some aches and pains here and there, but also my “nesting energy burst” kicked in and I took full advantage of it.
I spent a lot of time doing baby laundry, pre-packing for the hospital, carpet shampooing and other deep cleaning. I know it seems a bit nuts but I was one restless momma and just had to scrub everything!! Any of you feel that way too??
Anyway I posted a new video and created some quick preggo stats below to let you know what has been going on! I’ll check back with you soon with the results of my 3 hour glucose test…wish me luck!!
To date I have gained +11lbs, originally I was worried since I had not gained any weight for 4.5 weeks, but the doc says everything should be fine. I need to focus on gaining 1lb per week.
Back Ache, Major Heartburn, Slight Fatigue, Oily Skin, Butter Fingers, Braxton Hicks (several), Hair Growth
Locks of Kicks and Punches from this little baby, several times a day and for long stretches.
It’s still a surprise, will reveal soon!
Recent appointments were the 1hr Glucose Test, the 3hr Glucose Test and a Trimester Checkup
Staying Active & Healthy
To date I have been focused on lean meats, veggies and lots of fruits ( i mean lots ). I have been using juicing as a method to “eat” my veggies since I feel like I can not take in much food at each meal. I have also been taking my prenatal vitamins every other day or so (the iron in those bad boys can cause issues), and I try to hit the treadmill daily as well!
Everything looks great so far, to date I have had no cervix checks, just the normal heartbeat and belly measurements. Doc says I should try to spend more time relaxing if possible and put on a little more weight 🙂
