Almost 15 week update..

Saturday, September 07, 2013

I went in for my appointment yesterday with my midwife. It was so so. I gained 2 pounds and even though most of my blood sugar numbers are good my fasting numbers are horrible. I asked about taking cinnamon but she said it wasn't safe for pregnant women. We decided I would try walking for 15-30 minutes each night sometime after my evening snack and seeing if that made any difference.

On a better note we found out my ultrasound had been scheduled for 10/11, they will be looking at all of the anatomy and hopefully we will find out the gender. Unfortunately my husband will probably be in Alaska from 10/4-10/12 with the military. He is kind of upset about it but can't really tell the military no lol. As a surprise for him I scheduled an early gender scan with a private company on 9/17!! I cant wait! I will be happy either way but I am praying for a girl.. I love my son but I am ready for some pink in the house lol.

    Yay! The anatomy scan is kind of fun, but my husband was totally lost. I'd already had 2 U/S at that point, so I was kind of used to what I was looking at. He was not. When they told us it was a boy, he was like--I'll take your word for it. She says--look, see how there's a turtle on his belly... He said--I have no idea what we are looking at. Ha! So your private gender scan may go better anyway. I think looking at all the different body parts is what lost him...kidneys, the heart, arms, legs, brain, spine, etc. It's pretty cool, though.
