Back down to having gained only 5 lbs. But hey, I'll take that since I had plenty of extra to begin with lol. Caitie's heartbeat is good and strong.

Since I'm still on the Metformin and the MFM doctor's office was requesting blood sugar testing (they can't seem to get past me being on it for PCOS and try to say that it makes me automatically have GD...).....my ob is having me do a different test instead of the 1 hour (so I won't have to do daily finger pricks). I have to do a hemoglobin A1C (I think that's what it's called). With my last pg, I didn't know that I was supposed to take my Metformin the morning of my test as it was a fasting test. Since my test was around noon and I hadn't had a dose since around 5 the night before, it totally threw my numbers and they refused to follow up with a 3 hour. They had me do the finger pricking tests several times a day and then dropping to once a day and then a couple of times a week...before they finally admitted that all of my numbers were normal and I didn't have a problem with sugar. I was soooo frustrated that they wouldn't redo the 1 hour or do a 3 hour. So I'm glad my doctor is doing this other test instead. Hopefully that will satisfy the MFM doctor.

BP was fine.

I'm measuring 25 weeks, so not far off what I am.

She's scheduling my c-section for the week of July 5th, but doesn't think I'll go that long. I'm just praying I'll make it to 38 weeks this time.

Good appt. all in all.
