Happy Friday! Another week, another pregnancy update.
I just got back from my gestational diabetes test. Fingers crossed I passed. My doctor told me to eat a normal breakfast, so I ate my traditional eggs in a brown rice wrap with a little ketchup an hour before the test, so hopefully I pass. The drink was pretty darn gross. I don’t really drink anything besides water and coffee besides the occasional unsweetened tea, so it was kind of nauseating. It’s nothing to be scared of because it’s so quick, but it is gross. My advice would be to just drink it as fast as possible!
Every week I do these updates, I feel like not much as changed from the week prior. Besides the fact baby C is growing and not 15.25 inches long and 2.5 pounds! It’s AMAZING how long the baby is (and SKINNY!) but I can see how it’s so long when I feel it all over my stomach at the same time. I can feel the baby basically everywhere, including pretty low down now. I go for an ultrasound on Tuesday, so fingers crossed it’s head down (although I know it can move or change positions).
How I’m feeling: Are you sick of me saying I feel good? I feel like a broken record, but I’m SO grateful to be feeling good. At night I do get some back pain or ab pain, but that’s basically it (knock on wood). I really don’t have anything to report!
Belly: Belly has definitly grown and widened. Most days I feel like my belly is cute and I love it…some moments I feel HUGE, but not that often yet.
Exercise: Third trimester is all about staying active for me in a comfortable way. I’m predicting I’ll be doing a lot of walking, some running, weight lifting and yoga. I’m still doing the occasional jump squat, but that’s about it for intensity.
Gender Predictions: I told you last week I was convinced it was a ———– but now I’m kind of on the opposite side. Who knows? I want to post a survey to see what YOU think! I’ll also post all the old wives tale test I’ve done.
Best food eaten this week: Portobella pizza, mozzarella cheese, cake pops.
Looking forward to: Ultrasound and seeing the baby! Seeing our baby’s face! Getting my nails done this weekend! Going to Boston to see my college pals this week! Finding out if it’s a boy or a girl!
Want to give me any early gender predictions?
