Quick Update

Today I had a doctors appointment for my routine checkup, glucose testing for gestational diabetes and RhoGAM shot since I have a negative blood type. I didn't have to fast before drinking the sugary beverage they gave me for the testing, but I still felt a bit light headed and hot afterward. I assume I don't have diabetes but won't know for sure unless my doctor doesn't call me in a few days. I'm now going in for doctor visits every two weeks. I'm excited that I'm seven months pregnant! It seems like it's passed by pretty quickly and I'm so glad I've made it this far. I've gained about seventeen pounds, two cup sizes and some nice stretch marks on my breasts and bum. Thankfully places only my husband sees, though the nurse offered to give me my shot in the rear since it's less painful there. I politely passed. The average size for baby at 29 weeks is 15.2 to 16.7 inches and 2.5 to 3.8 lbs. At least that's what the photo posted below says. I am curious as to exactly how much my little one weighs but my doctor said it's too early to know. I hope for her to be at least six lbs when she's born and if she takes after either Matt (9 lbs) or I (10 lbs) then she should have no problem!

Yuck that GD test SUCKED! And they actually tried to tell me I had it since I failed the test. They sent me to a specialist and everything and had to test my blood sugar and ended up NOT having it. UGH what a hassle!

YAY! Good to know everything's right on track! It's going to be so exciting when she's finally here. :)

You were a 10 lb baby? I had epidurals so it probably didn't matter how big my babies were, I didn't feel a thing. They were all healthy though & that is definitely the most important factor.

congrats! Big babies in your family. My family is the same way. We were all over 8 pounds! Good luck.
