29 Weeks Pregnant

Okay so I’m just about 30 weeks now but since I’m not quite there we’ll still say I’m 29 weeks. This week my round ligament pain kicked back in full force so I feel like a waddling pregnant woman, mainly because I am. I gained a few pounds over the past few weeks so I’m going full force healthy diet to minimize the weight gain over the next few weeks. With the exception of Easter I’m trying harder than ever to watch what I am eating.

This pregnancy I’ve had every bad symptom there is. I think it’s the fact that I am getting older, I’m heavier than I was with my oldest, and hello, it’s my THIRD baby!

I had my dreaded glucose test this week. I did the lemon lime this time around and it was so much better than that nasty orange I had during my last pregnancy.

I got my test results today and have to go back for a three hour test. My heart sank to be honest. I have not been able to exercise nearly as much as I’d like to because of my round ligament pain. I have not had nearly as many cupcakes as I did during my last pregnancy. The sweets I’ve made recently I have not even eaten. I totally thought I’d go in and own that test and yet am somewhat shocked that it was abnormal. I guess we’ll see, my very sweet doctor told me not too worry too much about it. I am though, I feel like I’m already failing, my body is failing me. I just feel….down.

The highlight of my week was feeling Mia’s toes stick out along my belly. I sat there playing with them and she pushed out a few times. Now that I’m just about 30 weeks we have 10 weeks left of baby cooking. I’m hoping to stay happy and healthy and let the next 10 weeks be joyful. Now if only Mia would let me get a peak at her tiny toes again. hehe

    woo look at Mia grow.

    and I think the 1 hour glucose test is dumb, I don’t see how they can really see how our bodies matabolize the sugar in those drinks, it’s not like we sit all day and eat sugar our entire pregnancies. I am sure you will pass the 3 hour.

    I also just found your website, and I too had to do the three hour test this last thursday, I was 1 point about abnormal. I know how you feel as well with regards to the symptoms you have experienced this pregnancy. I have been having almost daily gallbladder pains, as well as SVT. I just turned 38 this month, and I keep blaming it on my age….lol Hopefully we will make it to the finish line happy and healthy mamas with two perfect little ones 🙂
