33 weeks...

So I'm going to my twice weekly NST's and also had an MFM U/S last week.  Baby is doing great.  They think she weighs about 4 lbs which is on target.  My weight is on target.  My Blood Sugars are doing okay.  Now, my back is hurting all the time and I get pain after I eat.  Doctor thought it was my gallbladder but when I mentioned I had pain after I had glucose tabs she thinks I have gerd.  She said take Pepcid twice a day.   I'm kind of ready for her arrival.    I've put in for my disability so I should be ready when the time comes.

Symptoms I felt this week:
  • Breasts itchy, rashy and getting sore again
  • Tired and out of breath. 
  • Back hurts badly
  • Hard to move around.  Getting out of bed is an ordeal
  • Belly popping out 
  • Very full belly and very tight sometimes.  Could be Braxton Hicks.
  • Baby kicks and movement all over.  Stomach sometimes moves when she moves.  
  • Sleeping issues a lot
  • Stomach hard.  As of last U/S, baby is still breech.

32 weeks...

This week I started my twice weekly NST's.  So far so good.  OB still isn't happy with my fasting numbers.  I'm trying but I can't control what happens when I sleep.  We got a lot done in the nursery this week.  Still have some work to do but it's slowly coming together.  All the bedding has been washed.  I've washed all the the clothes, towels and blankets.  Had a small mishap on the steam cleaned carpet in the nursery but I'm confident I can get the stain out.  We still need to clean up the changing table and get it upstairs and put the butterfly decals on the wall.  Last thing I'm going to do is get the lampshade, curtains and rocker recliner.  The biggest hurdle I have is getting the stuff I got from friends out of the living room.  Our downstairs looks like a tornado went thru it.  Quite an embarrassment if someone was to come over and into our home.    The big thing I've noticed is my lack of energy and ability to move easily.  I tire quickly and need to take frequent breaks so everything is taking longer than normal.

Symptoms I felt this week:
  • Breasts itchy, rashy and getting sore again
  • Tired and out of breath. 
  • Hard to move around.  Getting out of bed is an ordeal
  • Belly popping out 
  • Very full belly and very tight sometimes.  Could be Braxton Hicks.
  • Baby kicks and movement all over.  Stomach sometimes moves when she moves.  
  • Sleeping issues a lot
  • Stomach hard.  Not sure what position baby is in.  Hopefully head down.
