Holy baby belly!
It is hard to believe I am already 22weeks! It feels like I have so much time left, but then when I think about it I start to panic a little. I have very little time left! I have been knee deep in re-organizing everything in my house. My house is already organized, but I want it super organized before little man gets here. :)
My next O.B. appointment is next week, so I will have more "stats" to update on then. For now here is what has been going on...
I CAN FEEL HIM MOVE!!! Finally! The first time I felt him was at 20 weeks 4 days. I didn't think much of it because it was just tiny and weird feeling. Then the next few days I was certain it was him. He sure likes using my bladder as a trampoline. ;)
I have also started retaining water. I have been really watching my sodium and how much I am on my feet. I fear my wedding ring is going to have to come off soon. This is something I will bring up at my next appointment.
I have also failed my glucose testing. I have been following a "loose" diabetic diet since 12 weeks, but my pancreas just isn't picking up the slack (so to speak). I now test my bs 4 times a day and my urine once a day. Friday I will call in my blood sugars and see if they want me on medication. I am on a low sugar, low carb, low sodium, high protein diet. This is kind of tricky since I only tolerate chicken. I had the dietician school me on a vegetarian diet because meat just isn't very appealing right now.
I cannot get enough fruit! Lucky for me my diet allows me to have fruit.
That is about all that has been going on. I have been purchasing a few things here and there, but for the most part we have everything bought. I am now organizing everything.
I will update again at 24 weeks! :)
