So far-so good

All the bloodwork was normal. The doc had to re-run the bile salts bloodwork but she didn't think it would show anything (the lab screwed up). My feet have been less itchy and I honestly think it's more stress/anxiety related than blood related.

Even better news is that I once again passed the GTT! 111, same as the one I took at the beginning of the pregnancy. Very very happy about that. The weight gain is still an issue and I've been trying really hard not to let it go out of control but my body likes to hold on to weight so this has been difficult. It will be good when I feel I am in control again-because right now I am not really. I think I am up around 30 plus lbs. It's horrible because I do not want to be where I was last summer-well above 200. The only good thing is that I am sure to lose a little of it when the baby gets here. Then it's back to weight watchers for me once I get everything at home on a schedule. Ray is 100% on board with me going back to WW once the baby is here. This is good because without his support it would be a lot harder.

Overall things are going okay. I am in major pain all the time it seems though. My back hurts, my knee hurts, my shoulder and neck hurt. Just so much fun all the time. But it's only 11 weeks until the baby is here, I know I can make it and it will be worth it. Of course I am nervous as heck too but- I'll get over it.

Well that's really it. My next appointment is right before Thanksgiving and then I am on a two week schedule (wow!) until Christmas and then once a week after that (yikes). Ray and I start our childbirth classes the first tuesday in December- that should be-enlightening for him.

I'll try to be more consistent with posting.

I am confident you will have no trouble losing the weight post-baby! (And you being back on WW will probably help me stay on track as well!)

I hope that all goes well with you with your future appointments. Don't feel bad about the weight gain. I gained 55 lbs with Elena and was 215 lbs the days she was born. It sucked, but you lose it all after the baby is born. Just eat healthy and try to stay active.

God Bless!

Glad your bloodwork came back OK and that your GTT was good. You will be fine losing the weight after you have baby...with persistance it will happen. All women are different with how they gain during pregnancy, as long as you aren't overindulging, you are eating for the baby!
