We are almost there! A little more than two weeks until our due date! Hooray!
I'm sorry I've been MIA for so long! School has been really crazy this year (in a good way) and I have been sooo tired! When I spend a lot of time on Spark it is really hard for me to not track my calories. My doctor does NOT want me counting calories or stressing over weight gain. So I have been on Spark sporadically. I have gained a very healthy 38 pounds and my doctor is pleased. I am definitely all belly and constantly get comments on how small I am and is your baby growing properly? You are so tiny! It gets really annoying. I promise baby is about 6 pounds and I get an ultrasound every one-two weeks, so we are carefully watched.
This pregnancy has been really easy! I didn't have a lot of side effects and my weekly 17p shots (which my husband gave me!) weren't even very painful. Baby is a gymnast... she was breech for most of the pregnancy, turned at 35 weeks and turned back to breech at 37 weeks! Stinker! So on Tuesday during our next ultrasound we will get to see if she turned back. If not, we will schedule an ECV for the following week to try to turn her. We will most likely have her that day!
It seems so close yet so far away. Please be praying for an uneventful next couple weeks and that she turns on her own. I am ready to get back to my regular exercise routine (of course after I am cleared for exercise) and get back to my goal weight.
I can't wait to hold her and snuggle and learn how to parent with my wonderful husband!
Blessings to you all!
