  • I scheduled my glucose test for the Monday before thanksgiving too. They gave me the juice boxes and instructions today. I swear I was super tempted to drink them right away in my car. They're just regular organic grape juice boxes and I remember last time thinking they were freaking delicious.

  • At my OB appt today, she commented on my weight gain so now I’m all blah. She just told me to keep an eye on it but still. 

    Also, tomorrow is our ultrasound follow up and consult with MFM and I’m super nervous 😬

  • @ibabyloveb87 since I did a 3 hour at the beginning (had some high numbers in my initial bloodwork) the dr said she's just gonna make me take the 3 hour one again. Which is fine.  I didn't hate it. I'll just remember to bring my work stuff instead of a book!

  • @leksiL I have a very similar struggle with body image and weight. Mine is more about the fact that my dad and brother are quite overweight and so my mom can sometimes get super obsessed with calories. I know she means well, but it isn't super helpful. I have also gained most of what the doctor had initially suggested was a good weight gain, but last time I saw her she said I am still good because I have been gaining at the rate they recommend. I figure, like your midwife, at least if it's veggies and fruits the baby is getting a lot of good nutrients. 🤷‍♀️

    I lost nearly 80 lbs before getting pregnant. It was on that huge list of “clean up your diet. Clean up your products. Lose weight” as all of the “easier” (eye roll - since we know it isn’t that simple) ways of trying to get pregnant. I maintained that lower weight for about 2 years beforehand. I know have to chill out when I see the weight climbing but I can’t say it’s comfortable. I keep telling myself we can do it again. 

    @mandk1233 My family is the same. Everyone is overweight and I have to remind them and myself that I lost the weight so I could get pregnant. I know this is part of it.

  • @jvk2012 I'm so glad things are looking up! I hope he continues to grow properly and that everything matures as it should :)

  • @jvk2012 Yay for more positive results. Will be praying the trend continues and nothing is wrong with his digestive system.

  • Oh no. My mom called the venue for the baby shower yesterday to give them final numbers and they called her back today saying the small party barn our shower was supposed to be in is still not finished with renovations. They got hit by a tornado back in June, and told my mom when she scheduled in August they told her it would definitely be finished by now! She just called me almost in tears to tell me we're going to have to move the location. How exactly are we supposed to find a location in less than a week!? 
  • @babyroma I'm really sorry to hear the venue won’t be ready! Are there any hotels that have meeting rooms you could use? An arena with a “party” space? Our swimming pool has a party room. Any schools that rent out their gyms for party’s? 
  • @babyroma I can’t believe they didn’t call before she called them! That’s not good for business..... I’m glad she could find somewhere else. I’m sure it will still be lovely!!

  • @babyroma I’m glad your mom found another venue! I would be super ticked that they hadn’t called earlier!
