29 Week Survey

How far along? 29 weeks 2 days

Total weight gain/loss: Ugh... where do I begin? At my appointment last week I had gained 8 lbs in the last month, I was slightly mad to say the least! But, they had made me get off of metformin (the medicine which I was on because my PCOS does crazy things with insulin- causing crazy weight gain) in order to do the gestational diabetes test. Being off that medicine made me crazy! I was starving all the time, exhausted, cranky, etc... so needless to say Matt and I are THRILLED that I am now BACK ON the metformin. So hopefully I won't gain any more weight, or at least not at crazy rates like this past month.

Sleep: Starting to feel uncomfortable in most of my favorite positions, so it was not the best this week.

Food cravings: None

Best moment this week: Passing the gestational diabetes test!

Movement: She has been a wee bit quieter lately, little stinker!

Gender: Still a girl! =)

Labor Signs: I had some pain and tightness after riding in the tractor with Matt for awhile, yes, I realize now it wasn't the best decision. All is good now.

Belly Button in or out? In.

What I miss: Not a darn thing

What I am looking forward to: Our first shower this weekend, I can't wait!!!! And, our hospital tour tomorrow... this is starting to get real!

Milestones: Passing the glucose test

Fun to keep up with you on these surveys. Don't forget that you are supposed to gain weight when you are pregnant!! :) Let the countdown begin... she'll be here before you know it!

I never heard of someone WANTING to be on Metformin ;-). Glad you passed your gestational diabetes test and can get back on Met now. Hope things continue to go smoothly!
