28 weeks + 3 days



Even though getting pregnant was painful, apparently my body is doing something right for a change. I'm finally, albeit with the help of Metformin, processing insulin better. Who knew? I've been lucky with this pregnancy, yes, but I really do feel like it agrees with me. I'm going to be so sad when this pregnancy is over - thrilled to hopefully have our wee baby in our lives, but upset that the actual experience will have come to an end. {I know, I know, talk to me in a few weeks time when I'm huge and miserable and uncomfortable, and my tune may change!} ;)

I don't know the exact numbers from the GD test, but at least I know that I'm in the clear. I'll ask the OB for more details, out of curiosity, next week at our regular appointment.

Oh, and have I discovered a lovely new third trimester pregnancy symptom to share with you!? I hope it's not just me who's experiencing this one; but at the same time, I also HOPE it's just me because it's totally weird.

If I sit for too long or stand up suddenly, I get this weird pressure in the lady parts. Sometimes it's a shooting pain {hello, lightning crotch!} but other times it's just a dull ache. I was trying to describe it to Jase the other day, and the best way I could think of was that it felt like all my insides were going to fall out of me and drop straight down to the floor. Either that, or somebody has given me a swift kick to the vag.

I wish I knew how baby girl was sitting in there. I get a lot of flurries down in the nether regions, which I'm assuming are still miniature kicks - so I'm thinking she's still lying sideways or breech at this point. I wish there was some way I could find out for myself, but I definitely can't feel anything through my belly yet.

Yeah for passing the second glucose test!

Even at 38 weeks, I KNOW I'm going to miss being pregnant! I want to sleep all the time and I'm fairly uncomfortable, but I understand exactly what you mean about missing it. For me, it's been a wonderful experience, only slightly marred by my own personal anxieties (that word is spelled wrong?). I'm sure baby girl is kicking you down there! Or, she's turning head down. Baby boy has been head down since about 30 weeks!

Congrats on passing the glucose test! I take one on next week. It's not a "fasting all day" type thing right? Just one hour prior?
