I went to the doctor today and had my blood sugar test to check for gestational diabetes! I passed! Woo hoo! It feels good to have that behind me. After drinking the orange sugary drink that they gave me, little Baby A started moving like crazyyyy! I guess that boost of sugar really got her going!
My doctor said everything looks great and we start going to the doctor every 2 weeks now, which I am so excited about! I can honestly say I have such a different outlook on the pregnancy now. I feel like during my last post, I was a little down and emotional from the pregnancy and honestly, wasn't enjoying it that much. But, for some reason now, I really am enjoying it. I might even venture to say, I LOVE it. I guess its because I'm at the point where there is no hiding I'm pregnant, I finally feel her moving all the time which in itself makes it more enjoyable, I'm going to the doctor more frequently and I can see the light at the end of the tunnel. Now, I'm trying to cherrish every minute and really take it all in. Don't get me wrong, I still have my emotional moments at times but its just different. haha
So to sum up this month, here is an update:
According to my pregnancy book, Baby A weighs approximately 2 1/2 pounds and is approximately 15 inches long! If she were born now, she would have a 90% chance of survival (whew!), though we want her to stay in a cook for a while longer!
