Hi everyone.. Sorry I haven't been around much lately.. I've been busy with work and packing up our house.. It seems like there's not enough time in the day now..
But here's just a little update on me.. I had my 27 week OB appointment a few days ago and everything is going great! I've gained a total of 1 pound since my last appointment, which is putting me at my pre-pregnancy weight.. I'm measuring at exactly 27 weeks and my doctor said I'm doing great with my diabetes.. I had a A1c test the day before at my Endo appointment and it was at 5.3.. Which is great since the last time I had it checked at 8 weeks, it was 5.5. Basically my A1c result is of a normal person, that is non diabetic.. I'm still only on insulin at night for my fasting blood sugars and I'm insulin free during the day.. I just hope this keeps up for the next 3 months. But I've been a little relaxed on my diet the past month or two, but I'm cracking down on it now. So no more cookies and candy. lol I'm also going to get a u/s done at 32 weeks to see if my placenta as moved and to check on the growth of my baby, and then I'll have another u/s at 37 weeks.. So, everything is right on track.. Oh, and my blood pressure is PERFECT, it was 103/64.. I swear the fish oil you recommened to me has done wonders for my blood pressure and my blood sugars.. And the New Chapter prenatal vitamins are wonderful.. I get extra energy and it keeps me vary regular.. I know, TMI but this is vary rare in the third trimester.
I'm also excited about going baby gear shopping soon.. I did 2 days of over time at work this week and all that extra money I made is for shopping.. woo hoo! I must say, working over time when I'm this far along kicked my butt.. I won't be doing that again..
Once we get paid, I'm going to purchase a Chicco Keyfit Carrier.. Here's a picture of the car seat.. Isn't it perfect for a little boy?
