I am feeling great. I've gained 20 lbs so far. My stomach is getting REALLY big. It's hard to bend over now! We have had some pretty days here, so when we sit in the backward, I have been sunning my stomach. It looks nice with a littl e bit of tan on it, LOL.
I started my twice weekly testing this week . I go in for a non stress test every mon or tues, and then a biophysical profile u/s every thurs . IMO, it's a bit overkill, but I am being a complient patient. My NST on Tues was not good.... the baby was very active in the waiting room, and then slept thru most of the NST. I had both of my kids with me, and they were pretty well behaved for the 2 hours that we were at the Dr's office.. but I was hooked up to the machine for 65 minutes, which is just too long for kids to sit thru (they colored and ate grapes). Next week, I plan on saving most of my breakfast and eating it right before machine hookup!!!
I go tomorrow for my u/s. I hate that I am spending so much time at the Ob's office, and that I am spending so much on parking . I think that counting movements at home could be just as accurate.... But I do want my baby to be ok, and the GD does put me at higher risk, AND I want teh OB's to let me deliver with the midwives...... so I am following orders!
