Dealing with a few bumps in the road.

I'm now 29 weeks and in my third trimester! I can't believe i'm only 11 weeks away from having this little girl! Im doing well, super tired though. At my last appointment her heartbeat was 135! I loved listeningto her heartbeat! I'm down to 2 appointments a month or every other week. Pregnancy life has certainly changed since I was 26 weeks. I was Diagnosed with Gestational Diabetes and Anemia. I'm taking an Iron supplement along with my prenantal for the anemia, and have changed my entire life for the GD. I have had to change my diet, and eating schedule. I have to eat 6 times a day, 3 meals, and 3 snacks. I cut out most carbs. I can only have a certain amount for each meal/snack. It's more annoying than anything, but I have lost 5 pounds in 2 weeks, so thats interesting. Then I have to test my blood sugar 4 times a day! That is absolutely the worst part of it. My fingers are not doing so well from all the poking! I have to draw it first thing in the morning and an hour after each main meal. Argg! I hate it, but whatever. My motivation is of course my little girls health. I want to be healthy for her. I'm also now considered a high risk pregnancy, so I will start seeing that doctor as well as my obgyn for the rest of my pregnancy. I get frustrated sometimes not being able to eat a freaken cookie or a piece of fruit. (Fruit are very high in carbs, I had to cut down on fruit! Which is bad because that is like what I have been craving!) Anywho thats how baby and I are doing. Dave and I got our crib and other furniture set up in the nursery! We are super excited for it! Just can't wait for everything to come together.

26 weeks and counting...

So yesterday I had my last monthly appointment, and my last ultrasoud for now. My baby girl was finally able to cooperate, and they were able to get the last measurements they needed. The coolest thing at the ultrasound appointment was that when I felt her inside I could see it on the monitor! It was so cool! She is in a breach position which is normal for now, but my doctor later told me that is why Dave probably hasn't been able to feel her yet, because it's harder to feel the kicks on the outside down lower. We were both disappointed by that, oh well at least she is doing well. She is 2 pnds 2 oz, and heartrate was 126. I also had the glucose done yesterday, so just waiting to see of he calls us Monday with bad results, or no call means good results. Everything is going well, and we scheduled all of our remaining appointments. Only 8 left! and 3 of those are weekly! Were getting so excited, but nervous too. We dont have like anything purchased, we know those items we are going to buy, just been saving up to buy them. I'm doing well. I'm tired alot, and have the worst bed ever, so I have some back pains, but othere than that I can't complain. I LOVE to feel her kick. When she hears Daves voice, and he talks to her she moves even more! We are absolutley blessed, and grateful for all that we have. I've noticed my prayers have gotten much linger with all the thanks I'm giving, we just have so much to be grateful for. By the Way if you read this can you please pray for my cousins baby, he was born with major heart problems, and has less that 5% to NOT need a heart transplant. He is less than a month old, and is so fragile. Also for my sister-n-law. Her bile going to to her liver from her galbladder has clogged up and can cause her baby boy to be stillborn. They will induce her early by 2 weeks, but are constantly checking on the baby. The weird thing is that this issue only makes her itch A LOT, otherwise it has no effect on her, but can cause problems for baby. Please just pray for them of you can.
