Wow! I'm 31 weeks pregnant! I have so much energy and so VERY happy! At this point in my first pregnancy I was about ready to scream! LOL! Seriously, when Arias was born she weighed 10 lbs & 2 oz and when I saw her I was like no wonder I was wore out all the time! LOL Keep in mind I am 5'1 and people couldn't believe I carried a baby that size.
Baby update: Baby is doing well. Development is on schedule. They are keeping a really close eye on baby's kidney. There was some concern at first (dilation of the kidney), but after my last ultrasound, things are looking great! They are also keeping an eye on baby due to my gestational diabetes. I have been getting ultrasounds every 3 weeks. I will get them weekly when I turn 32 weeks (I guess to make sure the baby is staying on schedule and not getting too big). I have been in the doctor's office every week and although I am tired of seeing that place, I am very happy about how proactive they are being with me/baby's health. The nurse said "we are perfectionists!" I thank God for taking good care of us!
My diabetes is staying under control with diet/medication at this point. I am trying to add some walking to the equation, but my hips hurt when I walk on the treadmill after about 5 minutes. I'm going to buy one of those belt things I keep hearing about. Maybe that will help.
I will try to post a baby bump shot soon!
