Hey Hey Ladies,
I go through cycles of that, one week I am on the see food diet and the next week "meh, I don't feel like eating". It makes me think I'm either on a growth spurt and then a rest spurt. I was WAY more hungry last week then this week and this week my baby is quiet but still moving. Where last week when I was hungry it was a little ninja. How exciting that you're having boy/girl. I think about what mine could be and it will be awesome either way, then again I'll be sad either way. Sorta wishing I had twins on the way but saying that scares my husband HAHA!
Hows your 'back to routine' going?
Sorry I've been MIA lately, had a bit of a bad week. Just cranky not really any health problems. I did my GD test, asked the doc for the fasting one and he sent me for the screening one. Which showed that I wasn't diabetic but it wasn't a good level so he wanted the fasting one. He's a new doc so has to get used to me knowing my body and I actually said "I told you" and he said "you're right, you knew, sorry". He's a very nice guy and came highly recommended so I'll chalk it up to him not knowing my personality. So I had to do the fasting one yesterday.
My body is NOT used to all that sugar. Apparently I came just under the wire so he wants to see me but not necessarily today sometime next week. So I pulled out my old blood monitor and got some new strips. I'm going to spend the time monitoring my blood between now and my next appointment so he can see my levels are 'normal'. In fact, some of them are a little low but that's not as bad as too high for baby. I'm considering it a bit of a victory. It appears my body can handle natural sugar better then refined...duh, I knew that
FYI - I was hypoglycemic when I was in elementary school and prediabetic on metformin for 6 years before I lost my weight.
I figured this would happen but I'm glad the way I'm eating isn't showing some red flashing lights. I'm hoping he'll look at my levels and agree.
