Ok, this morning I had two appointments at the hospital. AND IT ALL WENT REALLY GOOD!!!
PRAISE THE LORD
First Cami & I got to sit with my nurse case manager & nutritionist for about an hour. After they reviewed my diet & blood tests they were both very impressed. They said I have been doing excellent & to keep up the good work. I have lost a bit of weight but for now that's fine. I just have to pay very close attention to my weight (weigh every morning) & if I start to loose any more weight I have to call the nurse. Anyway, it was a real compliment when both ladies commented on how well organized I was with everything I presented to them in regards to record keeping. So, all stays the same. Continue with the diet they gave me last week & continue to test my blood 4 times a day. Every week I will be having a diet & blood test review over the phone with my nurse & in 3 weeks I go back to the hospital for an in-person review & weight in.
After that we headed to see my OB doc. After a very long wait...atleast with a 2 1/2 year old in tow who has eating most of the snacks I brought...I had a quick but informative visit with the doctor. Again, all looks good. I have great blood pressure & the baby's heartbeat sounds great. At this point because I have my blood sugars under control we are still looking at letting things happen naturally with going into labor. However if I make it to the due date of April 3rd, we will then schedule a c-section. They wont induce me because of the previous c-section. So, let's pray Squirt is ready before 40 weeks & make it known!
I am so blessed. Cam has been super amazing & supportive this past week with my diet. So I will take this opportunity to say "thanks babe, you rock"! I won't lie, it's a bit tough at times, but the more supportive my family is, the easier it is to deal with.
