Sarah, that is the perfect weight gain!!!! You are doing great. I am higher then that, closer to 20 lbs but I am okay with that. I gained a good amount with Makena and at this rate I am way under that so I am happy! With her I gained about 48 lbs. Yikes, right?!?!?! lol. I hopeing to be around the 30 which was what the doc said would be a good range for me. Hoping! lol.

I went and bought fresh jalapenos today to make some homemade poppers without the breading, they are baked. YUM!!!! I am so excited!

38lbs with Samuel (and I was tiny to begin with). So I really wanna keep it under 30lbs with this one. We are approaching 20 very fast.

Lol, I know that feeling!! I was having a very slow weight gain this time up until about a month ago, thats when my appetite picked up and it was definietly adding on. lol. With Makena I gained a lot ealry on which was really hard. But I feel so much better this time around, maybe just because I was ready for all the changes.
Anyone else starting to feel the "heaviness"? I think I have hit that point now, harder to get up from lying down and roll over in bed. And I definietly have the waddle going! Hahahaha!

totally, most of my friends have girls so aaron could do with a few male companions!! i'm sure he'll make a few when he starts kindergarden next year, but until then there's an excess of estrogen floating around him!!

i keep thinking brother may be nice for that reason...he needs some testosterone to balance out the ladies in his life!! xx

bet your nerves are well restored knowing he's ready and in position!!

my big news is i decided to leave the school i was substitute teaching at. they started expecting way too much of me so i'm finishing on friday for good, my health and degree are just too important to sacrifice at the moment and i wasn't earning nearly enough for my trouble (2,600 Namibian dollars for this month = 314 US dollars)

had a scary moment on sunday where i collapsed (didn't pass out like 'black out' but just legs gave way while i was walking to the kitchen) took a few moments before i got up to get myself together but long and short right now is i'm looking out for number one (and little baby number 2!) xx

Hey girls, had a fun morning at the hospital on my end. NOT! I had to go in for my blood tests because I'm over 28wks and it said between 26-28wks on my paper (oops!) and I see my OB tomorrow. It also stated that I was allowed to eat on the paper, but my OB had scratched that out and left it as a regular fasting blood test. Didnt know why. Well, I woke up this morning at 6:30, got everyone (DH and Sam came along) ready and we headed on our 1hr bus ride to the hospital (its dumb because by car, its 15mins lol). Anyway, got there for 8:30am. Well you know what? Turns out I ALSO had to do my GD testing at the same time. Drank the gross stuff at 8:45, waited an hour til 9:45, went in for the blood tests (3 vials) and then had to wait til 10am before everything was all done. I was starving!!! Nothing to eat around there and I wasnt about to have breakfast in the cafeteria (eww!). So we took another bus ride all the way downtown and then took the subway (30mins or so) and eventually ended up at McD's (hahaha, so not my thing but I was starving and felt like fainting).

Anyway, after a "lovely" BELT sandwich, I felt better. The nurse told me if I failed the test, they'd call me between 12-3pm to schedule the 2hr test. It is 2:40pm now and no call. Is that a good thing?? *crossing fingers*

Oh my gosh, what an adventure you guys had! Em, is it because of your low blood pressure? Sarah, how did Sam handle being at the lab for that long! Even I was getting antsy at the lab and I was by myself with a book to read too!

I have GD! :cry:

My fasting levels were 10.6 and should have been between 4.0 and 7.0

I'm seeing a nutritionist next Thursday. Ugh!!! THIS SUCKS!

Somehow, I knew. Eli is huge. I havent gained much weight but he's taking in all the sugars, not me. Now I'm still high risk! :omg: :mad:
