Re: AMA Check in 6/26

  • 1) how far along are you? 26 weeks and 6 days
    EDD? 9/27

    2) any appointments this week? Nope but I have been talking to my Dr's a fair share. GD sugar levels updates and then scheduling an echo and 3d ultrasound with a high risk dr for next week.

    3) how are you feeling? So tired. It is not unusual for me by 7pm to need to be in bed. Even if not asleep until later. I tend to wake up around midnight (and now eat a protien snack to keep my sugars level) and then sleep again wake up around 4 or 5 for a half an hour and then back to sleep till I have to get up for work. I feel rested but still tired. Heartburn has kinda sucked too..seems like when I was eating more carbs it helped avoid some of that but now with less carbs in my diet its back to flaring up a fair share. Still gagging in the morning due too much mucus production. Also now that I am not suppose to be eating a ton of sugar I am craving totally sweets and ice cream.

    Concerns, or gripes? GD testing hasn't been as bad as I thought it would be and it seems like what I am eating has kept me way below levels which feels good (including when I had a mini blizzard the other day).

    Glad that I am going to be able to get an echo for kiddo to see her heart (they haven't been able to see one of the sides over the last 3 ultrasound). However, the scheduler told me they don't like to do the echo beyond week 28 or so because things get harder to see....which is frustrating because I have been suggesting it for awhile. 

    Also trying to adapt to not having a ton of energy...usually these long sun filled days help buoy me up to get a ton done...but going to bed early is really putting a damper on it.

    Raves: Starting to dream about maybe doing a weekend or two out of town to enjoy a few tiny mini bump getaways before things start getting closer. 

    4) gtky: favorite childhood memory? Wayyy to many to pick one.

  • 1) how far along are you? EDD? 30+3 / sept 2

    2) any appointments this week? no

    3) how are you feeling? Any raves, concerns, or gripes? no big changes. my back hurts, it's hard to just move around/breathe, etc, and my feet (right much more than left) are swelling daily. My left is usually a bit puffy even when I wake up in the morning and it's pretty big by evening. I hate it. It feels sore too. My sandals and sneakers are all too tight on my feet and I feel like my legs look like tree trunks. No other part of me is swelling but ankles/feet though.

    4) gtky: favorite childhood memory? Also have so many it's impossible to pick one. I had a very happy childhood.

  • @BecauseLove so glad the gd testing hasn't been as bad as you probably worried it would be and is manageable. Hopefully you get in for the echo before you get to 28wks and they get the shots they need and it puts your mind at ease.
