But it's still so cool to be able to see her from the outside and feel her so strongly. One thing that started happening maybe 3-4 weeks ago is that she got the hiccups for the first time. And now she gets them ALL the time! I feel kinda bad for her because she probably gets them once a day or so and they last a good 5-10 minutes! But it's also pretty cute!
Another change is that the sugars are starting to misbehave again. I'll probably do a whole other post on that because it just about broke me. Suffice it to say, the going was rough for about a week and that seemed to also be the week that the pregnancy hormones kicked in (up until then I'd been holding my own on the emotional front) because that week of crappy control really got to me.
As far as the doctors are concerned, everything is going to plan. Her overall growth is still in the mid-40th percentile but her abdominal growth jumped from 50th to 70th percentile. That TOTALLY freaked me out but I was assured it's not worrisome at this point. But since then, I've been working overtime to get these sugars under control so that she is affected as little as possible. I saw my endo last week but he hadn't received my test results from the lab yet, so I don't know my most recent A1C. Hopefully he'll call soon with that. Anyway, on to belly pics!
And here's the belly at 32 weeks. . .
And here it is today at 34 weeks and 3 days. Whew! It seems like the last 2 weeks she has really grown. For those who don't know, I'm pretty short, just shy of 5' 2". And my torso has always been the shortest par of me. I'm starting to wonder if that is why the belly is starting to poke out so sharply and I'm getting more and more uncomfortable (like, exponentially) the bigger she gets. That . . . or maybe I'm just being a huge wimp and need to get over it. Hmmm?
And, just because I was curious how the pics of "my view" of the belly would look if I put them side by side . . . here it is at 25 weeks.
. . and my view at 29 weeks . .
And my view today, at 34 weeks.
Holy smokes! These last 5 weeks she's been a busy lady!
That's about it for the update. The delivery date is still up in the air but it's looking like 37-ish weeks which means we only have 3 more weeks!! And then we get to meet her!!! And I did want to talk more about my trials and tribulations with my blood sugars but I just don't have it in me right now. And I also need to post pics of the nursery because it's pretty much done. All that will have to wait for the next update. Hope everyone is having a good Monday! Hopefully next time I update I'll have more info on her arrival!!
