Well, as you may have guessed I've had a few doctor appointments since my last post. Luckily there is not anything really to report there. My run of the mill check up was last week and what could be better than a nice boring check up right? The babies are all doing great and although I may not feel great, the doc tells me I am doing fabulous. Actually I think her exact words to describe me were "Rock Star". She is always so excited with the progress not to mention just the simple fact that I am still pregnant and up and around.
I am also now seeing a Perinatologist. This is a doctor reserved for those with high risk pregnancies and complications. She will also be performing my ultrasounds from here on out. She has always been consulting with my Doctor, now that I have the complication of the Gestational Diabetes, I was the one consulting with her. She too was very impressed with how things have played out so far with this pregnancy. She said if things keep up like this, she sees no reason why I shouldn't make it to 34 or maybe even 36 weeks! That's only 6-8 weeks left. Wow, times flying!
We also talked a lot about diabetes and she did toy around with the idea of putting me on insulin, but ultimately said she wouldn't be doing that. She may put me on a pill every morning before breakfast, but I can handle that. Just keep the needles away!
Let me just say, it felt really good to get such great feed back from the doctors. I have been trying really hard to balance my family and this pregnancy and it gets harder day by day. A little recognition felt really good. I definitely have my list of discomforts and complaints, but I try to stay on the positive side for my own sanity. The GD has been really tough on me. I am having some MAJOR sugar cravings lately. I was making my kids PB&J yesterday and it took all my will power not to grab a spoonful of jelly and eat it. Craziness! I used to be tempted more by the PB. I am keeping on the diet, although grudgingly, I know it's best for me and the wee ones in my belly.
On the subject of the wee ones, they are packing some punch these days! I swear 3-4am is a Kung Fu match time most mornings. I'm not talking about little flutters either, theses are some roundhouse kicks! Needless to say they are growing stronger every day and here's my belly pic to prove it...Enjoy!
