The Good and the Bad

Julianna's weight gain is still on track! Her dietitian came this morning and did a weight check and she was over 25lbs! (I knew this though because of her NICU follow-up). So she will no longer see the dietitian (unless I feel there's an issue)! Yay for Julianna!

I had another OB appointment this afternoon. It did not go the way I would have liked. First off, I have gestational diabetes. Poop. I was really hoping I had passed my 3hr test considering I barely failed my 1hr, but no such luck. I meet with a dietitian on Thursday to discuss my "diet" and to learn how to test my blood sugar...YUCK!

Because I didn't pass my 3hr test, I now have to deal with hospitalization when I get my steroid shots...double poop. I have another appointment next Tuesday with my normal OB, Dr. O, to discuss the shots and how he wants to proceed. I will be glad to see Dr. O again. I like Dr. C, but will still feel better with my normal OB again.

So, now I am high-risk for about a bazillion reasons. I also now have even more restrictions. No housework at all, no lifting (this one isn't new), "sleep in late & go to bed early" and lay down whenever I can.

The only good news I had this appointment is that I will be getting another ultrasound next week. It's been over a month since my last one (I am supposed to have one at every appointment to monitor my cervix, but haven't for some reason lately). So, I will get to see little nameless Baby K again!

I am having a very defeated pregnancy day. I need to look at the positives...I am almost 29 weeks! This kid has almost a whole week longer in my belly than Julianna!


  1. I'm sorry your appointment went bad! The bright side though - you are STILL pregnant! Atleast this baby is still cooking - no matter the complications, I know you are atleast happy that he hasn't been born.

    "No housework at all, no lifting (this one isn't new), "sleep in late & go to bed early" and lay down whenever I can"

    I know you are having a hard time but these restrictions sound dreamy to me :) Take it easy & just try to enjoy being this pregnant!


  2. The restrictions would be a lot easier if I didn't have a toddler to take care of. I guess I'll be pawning her off on family members again.
