Married and Pregnant

I fished my wedding ring out of the drawer yesterday.  I parked it there a couple of months ago thinking it the smart thing to do in case my fingers started to swell.

Last week I was still under the weight from my first appointment so I decided it was safe to put back on.  It feels good to be married and pregnant again.

I've been gaining and losing the same 5 pounds since I first visited the doctor in February...  Mainly due to my pre-pregancy size being a bit more on the - ahem - solid side. My metabolism LOVES being pregnant, I have never gained more than 16 pounds with any of my pregnancies (even when I wasn't as solid as I am now) and as long as I don't have ketones in my urine, my doctor is fine with it.

ANYWAY, wouldn't ya know that over this past week, I gained 3 pounds. 

Oh well, the rest of the visit went well.

My blood pressure was down a bit from last week and my glucose levels, which had been high over the weekend, are now under control and there was no mention of insulin.  My NST went well once the baby woke up and "he" seems to have moved to a head down position!

Extra bonus... I had my complimentary massage this afternoon.  

We're still plugging along one week at a time and I am fine with it. 

Today anyway, we'll see what tomorrow brings...

Yay!! I'm so tickled you are having another boy! Glad you are doing so well! My metabolism loved pregnancy too! I weighed less when baby was born than I did before I was pregnant.

Heather, we don't know if it's a boy or not... we just call Baby "he" because we think "it" sounds weird...
