I spent a day in labor and delivery a couple of weeks ago for contractions. Luckily they weren't dilating me at all, so they just sent me on my way! Then yesterday happened...I went in for my routine check up, and ended up having crazy blood pressure. They took my blood work, and sent me home to do a 24 hour urine test. The good news is, it looks like I'm steering clear of preeclampsia for now. The bad news is that I am being monitored very closely at weekly appointments, and they suspect ill deliver early due to blood pressure complications. I also failed my glucose test at yesterday's appointment(yesterday was not a good day) and have to go for a three hour extensive gestational diabetes test. So that's where we are at now. I've learned that things can change in the blink of an eye, so I'm trying my hardest to go with the flow. All I can do is give it my best, and the rest is up to my body. Anyways, here's a look at this weeks stats!
How far along? 26 weeks
Total weight gain/loss? I have gained 11 pounds so far.
Maternity clothes? Umm, yes! Half of those don't even fit anymore!
Stretch marks? My whole stomach is one big stretch mark now..
Sleep? It really depends on the night. Sometimes I sleep great, other times I'm awake all night.
Best moment this week? This is a tough one...the last few weeks haven't been great in general. There's been more bad moments than good.
Movement? SO much movement! It's the highlight of all my days.
Food cravings? Chai tea has been my thing this week...who knows why.
Anything making you queasy or sick? Still having a hard time with chicken.
Have you started to show yet? I just laugh at this question..
Gender? One of each!
Labor Signs? I did spend a day in labor and delivery last week...let's hope I don't have to visit there again for a couple more months.
Belly Button in or out? I don't know how to answer this question...my belly button is just weird these days.
Wedding rings on or off? Off and locked up safe!
Happy or Moody most of the time? I'd say I spend most of my time happy! My husband might beg to differ ;)
Till next time!
