Baby Numeral Dos

We went in for a check-up on Monday, just one day before the start of week 25. I like that my visits are less than 30 minutes, total, but it does make for a bit of a wasted day when I have to drive there and back. Not looking forward to those weekly visits that will be happening soon.

I've been feeling pretty good, and clearly eating very well, as I gained 16 pounds since my last visit! Oops. That puts my total weight for this pregnancy over 20 pounds, so I suppose I can expect to put on at least 40, again. It would have been nice to keep it lower, but it's just not possible to work out, take care of a baby, work, do everything else and be pregnant. Kudos if you can! Had I been pregnant in the summer time, I'd be much more likely to go for a walk. But when it's freezing cold, windy and/or snowing, I am just not that die hard.

Also, I remember a similar jump in weight with Jacob as well. The Dr. wasn't worried, although baby is also measuring a little bit, so she scheduled an ultrasound. More for the perk of an ultrasound over potential issues.

Tomorrow I get to go take the glucose test, which I am so not excited about. Mostly because I'm taking Jacob and the place we go is not geared toward children. I really miss my old OB's in AZ this time around, as they had a great set up. They did bloodwork in the office and I drank the glucose Kool-aid in the comfort of a large, squishy couch in front of a cartoon. I didn't even have a kid then!

Sadly, I haven't convinced Chris that we need to be back in AZ yet. Maybe someday, although we both prefer the South. Po'boys and amazing BBQ? SOLD. Plus, Chris is convinced he can catch a gator.

Anyways, I thought I should record something about this baby, as I did not invest in a Belly book for posterity. Even though I seem to have mis-placed both the Belly book AND Jacob's baby book in one of our many, many moves. This summer we may have to tear my mom's shed apart to find it!

I dreaded the weigh ins with my last pregnancy. Mainly because of the medical assistant who would make comments on it each time.

I was going weekly as of 28 weeks, for type 1 diabetes, and so each week I got to hear something from her. Finally I told her off in my sweetest way.

I gained a total of 40 lbs, had a 9 lb baby and lost everything but the last 12 pounds by 7 weeks post partum. I hated that she made me feel bad about what my body was doing. And I ate a lot of salads and healthy food through out my 38 weeks.
