Hi folks, I thought I'd pop my head in and see how everyone was going.
@French Pear, @Riri, thinking of you both! Hopefully your subsequent scans bring good news!
I'm 28w2d today. We had a growth scan last week and bubba is in the average size range. OB and GD dr are happy with the way things are progressing. The surge of hormones around 28 weeks has meant my insulin dosages have had to be increased to keep my blood sugar stable but apparently that is a perfectly normal thing so I'm not concerned. I'm just thankful GD dr has been mentally preparing me for this increase since I was first diagnosed, otherwise I know I'd be completely freaking out.
Bubba is in the breach position at the moment, again perfectly normal for this stage, so we'll have to wait and see where he's at at the 36-week scan to finalise delivery details. OB will take him out at 37/38 weeks because of my GD, asthma, age, blood pressure, etc so I feel like I don't have that long to go now.
Like the rest of you, I've found it very difficult to get excited during this pregnancy. I'm trying to enjoy it but there's still a small part of me that worries about everything. Even before the scan last week I was concerned about what they were going to tell me. Thankfully, everything was fine. I'm really looking forward to meeting bubba in a couple of months time. It all becomes real then. ATM, it still feels too early to feel totally confident of the outcome, although I'm trying to be as positive as possible. I'm so grateful for bubba's kicks/movements. It kind of puts my mind at ease that he's in there bumping around and doing OK. I'm even trying to be appreciative of it when he wakes me up in the middle of the night with a wallop.
I'm not too uncomfortable yet but give me a few more weeks and I'm sure I'll feel differently...
@Colbie, are you feeling any better today? There are some horrible bugs going around. Fingers crossed it passes quickly!
