So, my due date is the 1th of March, I'm already progressing well and my dr. thinks I might not make it that long. This is good since, with the gestational diabetes she wants me to deliver no later than the 12th (chances of complications increase at 40 weeks). Well start helping it along on the 6th if I'm not here yet. since I originally calculated my due date as the 5th, this works well for me (calendar calculation vs. ultrasound calculation).
All in all things are well, the diabetes i s controlled through diet/exercise and medication. I've been in the same 2 pound weight range since christmas (at morning weigh-in) and have lost a pound according to the dr.'s office as of yesterday (from the month previous' weigh-in) but the baby is definitely continuing to grow - no doubt about that, and, no, I'm not trying to lose weight, just watching the diet more and being more careful about what I eat.
So, I'll keep you updated, thanks for checking in.
