I had a routine OB appointment this morning. I'm 14.6 weeks. I have gained a whopping 8lbs since I became pregnant! Man it sure feels like more! But in my opinion at this stage in the pregnancy 8lbs is ALOT of weight to have already gained. My Doc hasn't said anything negative about my quick weight gain, so I guess it is ok for now at least.
My blood glucose levels are still well controlled by diet and a minimal amount of insulin. So far the Doc hasn't had to increase my insulin dose. My goal is to see just how far into this pregnancy I can get before the dose has to be increased.
Want to talk about a stubborn and active baby?! This baby moves around so much that my Doc has yet to be able to use the doppler to find the baby's heartbeat without first using the ultrasound machine to confirm the baby's position. S/he is a placenta huggeer which makes picking up the baby's heartbeat very difficult. Today dad was sooo hopeful that the Doc may be able to get a quick glimpse of the baby's sex, being she couldn't find the heartbeat by first using the doppler, but no such luck. 1. The laptop ultrasound machine isn't very good quality. 2. The little poppy seed was moving all over the place. 3. His/her legs were crossed making the process of trying to get a quick peek unsuccessful. So unfortunately dad and grandma will just have to muster up some more patience for the 2 BIG ultrasound in a little over 2 weeks. Hopefully for their sake the baby will cooperate. Personally, I think that waiting and not finding out until the delivery would be kinda cool. I just love surprises! But unfortunately Dad doesn't have another 23 weeks of patience left in him... sigh....
