I'm six months today and still doing great. I go back to the doctor next Tuesday for my "end of the second trimester" check up. I believe she told me she was going to check me for gestational diabetes at that point.
Things are really starting to come into place... friends dropping off hand me down baby clothes, shower gifts arriving in the mail, etc. This child is going to want for nothing! :)
Thank you all so much for your comments, sparkmail, blog comments, etc. I really miss you guys/gals terribly and can't wait to get back to sparking! I have found that I enjoy the information on babyfit, but the meal plans on sparkpeople are more to my liking so I go between the two... also, I can enter my food on sparkpeople from my phone, so I don't really have an excuse not to eat right!
I need to get back to exercising. I've been on vacation and general super busy getting the houses ready for baby Jane. Afternoon fatigue is starting to set in again like in my first trimester, but our 1 year old puppy doesn't understand that and I really need to look to her for motivation! She's a bag of energy.
In other news, my husband had his flight physical and the doc told him that he's borderline high blood pressure. He wants me to help him lose some weight because he is not a pill taker. I figure it will be easier once the baby comes and I am losing at the same time. Of course, vacation and his hectic schedule being down one pilot (not anymore though!!) made it virtually impossible for him. He thinks not eating at the hospital and eating with his crew will help with his weight loss. I'm sure it has to be tough with 12 hour shifts, 3 of them being 7P to 7A.
Anywho, enough of the blah blah blah. :)
Hope everyone is doing well and enjoying this lovely cool weather... or at least the cool weather we've been having in West Virginia.
