Ultrasound results


Hi,

Went in for my 36 week appointment with ultrasound. The ultrasound was to find out the size of the baby since I am borderline diabetic. Anyway, the baby's size is right on target.


BUT we found out the baby's in frank breech. :-(


She's not head-down. I swore she was because everytime she have hiccups, I'd feel it "down there." Oh welllll...


The doctor told me, next monday, I will have another ultrasound to see if she's still in breech position, then I will have to to go to the hospital to see if they can turn her around while monitoring her heartbeats.


The doctor said there's 50/50 chance the turning will work, but if nothing works, then I will have to have c-section near my delivery date. I really don't want c-section! Yi-yi-yi...
Jon was also in frank breech when he was born, so this baby have his genes!

Alaska Easter Egg Hunt

Ha HA HA! That's funny -- I was browsing through my friend's blog. She lives in Alaska and this is the Easter Egg Hunt. The kids have it easy!!! I absolutely love this picture she took.




30 days left!!!!

30 days left but why do I feel like I'm overdue?!? I just feel huge like a whale. All the heaviness, and harder to maneuver around. I won't be surprised if I deliver early... (sighs)

Abby's sick with a nasty cold, and I think I'm beginning to get it. My energy level is near zero. I had today off, so we spend the day at home. I was gonna clean house but with my energy level, all I could do was keep awake!

Our Easter was fun! My sister and her family and my parents came for a nice big ham dinner. Hid the eggs for my niece and nephew. Unfortunately, my niece was sick (same cold?) and she slept in Abby's bed most of the day. I hope she feels better by now.

Ok, I gotta go and put Abby to bed so I can go to bed early!
Hugs to all.

34 week check-up

SUCCESS!

I went in for my 34 week check-up, and I didn't lose any more weight! I am at the same weight as 2 weeks ago. Whew...

Doctor reviewed my blood sugar records and decided that I don't need to check my blood 4 times a day, he said to do it only once a day.

The tummy measurement and baby's heartbeat is right on target. Everything looks perfect.

I'm still scheduled for an ultrasound -- so I'm beginning to see it as a perk instead of worrying why I have to have another ultrasound.

(LONG SIGH) 6 more weeks to go!!!! I'm so ready to reclaim my body back.

Ok, I gotta go and try to put Abby to bed. She likes to try to stay up as long as she possibly could.

Hugs to all.

Just hangin' out...


Nothing much new lately... Except one of my friends decided to take her house off the market, so she's STAYING! YAYYYY..
Been staying busy with work, Abby, and errands/chores. Keeping my mind sane until baby's born. I have 42 days to go, you know... :-)
The baby's room is allllll ready. Abby really wanted to help decorate, so I found some scrapbooking stickers of butterflies and insects so she had the time of her life sticking them on walls, and repositioning them every where else. I doubt the stickers will last very long since they're no longer very sticky.
Jon's doing good. Just same old, same old. He is excited that the weather is improving so he's spending more time in our backyard, grooming it up. I am also happy that Spring is coming so we can spend more time in the backyard. I am actually looking for a hammock swinging chair to put underneath our deck.
Abby been wanting to go to her sand box more lately. So, that's a sign Spring is coming!
As for the baby's progress. She's very cramped in there, and is pushing, shoving and doing somersaults. She has hiccups often. I remember Abby had hiccups offen too. The baby likes to move a lot when I'm trying to SLEEP. It's funny, when I know she's moving a lot, I ask Jon to feel her, but seems everytime he places his hand on my tummy, she'll stop. Hmph. What a teaser.
I guess I'll sign off now since I ran out of stuff to say. G'nite!

81.8% There

I had my 32-week appointment today. It also was my 1-hour gluose retest. I hope I did pass, but if not, well, there's not much I can do!

I've been monitoring my blood sugars and eating carefully. I am still losing weight. Auggh. Doctor said I lost 2 pounds in the last couple weeks. I should be GAINING, for god's sake!

The measurement and heartbeat is all fine. They are going to order another ultrasound in 4 weeks to double check on the baby's measurements since I'm borderline diabetic and not gaining any weight.

Easter is coming! I can eat Easter candy as long as the portions are right, and all my meals are balanced. We're gonna have my family down here for Easter. It's gonna be hectic but fun! :-)
