Wow, I am 7 months pregnant already! Part of me feels like It has been so much longer, but then the other part feels like it is flying by. =)
I had my 28 week appointment today... It went ok. The last thing I wanted to hear was my doctor say that I need to go on a diet. Well, not necessarily a diet, but the 2000 calorie American Diabetic Association Diet. I gained 6 pounds this month. 6 Pounds! I don't know how! It is so discouraging to think that I made a little more effort this month to be good, and still managed to gain that much weight.
I have also been tracking my blood sugars (can't do a glucose test because of the Gastric Bypass I had 6 years ago) and while my fasting blood sugar levels are good, My after meal levels are a little high. So I have to really watch the carbs and sugars I am eating. I really wish I could afford to see a dietitian who can help me come up with meal plans and just help me understand this diet.
Another thing she is a little worried about is that my stomach is measuring a little bigger than normal. She says this could be due to the baby growing faster than normal, or too much amniotic fluid. (which could signal other problems) So I am scheduled for an ultrasound before my next appointment in two weeks. I am a little nervous. After looking into the problems that could cause excess amniotic fluid (heart problems, gastric problems, etc) It just has me worrying. I am praying that it is nothing...
Prayers would be very appreciated! Both that I can stick with eating healthy, and also that there is nothing wrong with the baby and that I will have a peace and not worry too much. =) Hopefully these next two weeks will pass quickly. My appointment is May 20.
Hope everyone is having a good week!
