So I had my growth scan and met with a nurse this morning to talk about the diet for Gestational Diabetes. The diet doesn't look too bad but I know it's going to be hard trying to figure out what to eat if I ever eat out (which normally I do at least 2-3 times a week for either lunch or dinner). The nurse said my levels were pretty high for the 2 parts of the test I failed so she was talking like I was going to need medication toward the end. I really hope not but we'll see. Right now I have to have weekly NST's and BPP's and then I'll have another growth scan at 36 weeks. If I end up needing medication, I'll have to have the NST and BPP 2x a week.
The growth scan was awesome and she's of course grown a ton in the past 10 weeks. They confirmed she was a girl (not that I was too worried) and said all the measurements looked good. She's about 4lbs 3oz right now which I think is pretty big for being 31 weeks. So, I'm glad I'm doing the diet NOW and not waiting anymore for people to call me back etc.
The coolest part was when the tech switched over to 3D! Piper was just sucking and chomping away on her thumb. It was adorable:) I really can't wait to meet her! Below is one of the best shots we got from today. She's already got chubby cheeks like her mom too:P
Oh, and not that she'll necessarily stay this way, but she's head down right now. Good girl! So fingers crossed the diet works... my numbers today have been fine so far so I just hope they stay that way.
